My five summer staples

Since we are in full swing of summer here in Northern Ireland I thought there couldn't be a better time to share my summer staples, we don't get much of a summer here so we make the most of the hot, sunny weather while we can.
I was never one for a hat, thought they didn't really suit me, until I stole this from my sister, other peoples stuff seem to always suit you better don't they? The trilby style seems to suit me better rather than the massive brimmed style. It is so important to shade your head/hair from the sun, does so much damage if your out for long periods of time, buy yourself that hat.

Hands up if you cant go in to Tkmaxx without heading over the sunglasses stand? Guilty. I bought these beauties from Tkmaxx last year and I cant find another pair quite like them, dark enough so you cant see my eyes, I find it so creepy when you can see peoples eyes through their sunglasses, please tell me I'm not the only one! 

Summer Dresses 
If you hadn't already realised I love a summer dress, I think midi suits me more, I'm nearly too tall for maxi. Summer dresses are just so classy and your cool and shaded at the same time, eyeing up a beautiful one from Miss Selfridge (linked below) thanks to Emma at little wood life for bringing it to my attention, she wears it so well, go take a peak - in the sale now too, go QUICK! H&M also have the most beautiful dresses, quite short though but still gorgeous!

Usually when it hits the hight of summer its time to kick of those closed toed shoes and to get your sandal game on, Im quite the granny when it comes to sandals, I like them to be practical and usually go for the kind that will last the ages! I love these little lace up ones from Glamorous, Not practical by any means and I thought hmm I’ll not get the wear out of them but surprisingly they are very comfortable and stay firmly on my feet, I do have a pair from Oasis that I bought years ago and every time I wear them my mum always says ‘not those old boys again’ yep I'm afraid so! do you have a favourite pair of summer sandals? or do you throw them once the summer is over?

A Summer scent 
Scent is the most powerful of our senses for bringing out our emotions, memories and reactions from others. There are quite a few scents that just instantly make me think of summer, smelling nice any time of year is obviously essential but in summer its a must, all the flowers are in bloom and we are awkwardly smelling others as they briskly walk past, still haven't plucked up the courage to ask anyone yet what perfume they were wearing, knowing me id give my self some work and go in to Debenhams or boots and spray everything till I found it, love a challenge haha. My absolute favourite has to be Jo Malone Bluebell, but I also love Marc Jacobs Daisy and Chanel Chance.
