My Ride or Die Summer Essentials

Can you believe it’s already July?! My favorite month of the year aka my birthday month… Let the celebrations commence!

Speaking of my birthday, I recently treated myself to some new summer essentials that I’m dying to share! Most of them are on such a good sale right now that you can’t miss it!

First, I’d like to talk about these two summer essentials. The satin top is my recent score from H&M, and it was such a random find at an amazing price! I was actually about to leave the store empty handed when I took one more turn and ended up at the sale aisle. This satin beauty was only $5! I will admit, I already have two similar satin tops in different colors, but I could not pass this one. I fell in love with the silver/ metallic? color and I knew it will go perfectly with my new watch from JORD.

Speaking of the watch, how elegant and feminine, right? Sometimes a wood watch can look a bit clunky, but that is not the case with this one! I already worn it a bunch of times and I feel like it goes with everything. I love the silver timepiece details and overall how light it is. Very well-made as well. I highly recommend it!

If you read this post, you know I’ve been looking for a new, affordable (faux) leather jacket. I said it once and I’ll say it again, H&M never disappoints in this department! I bought my first biker jacket from them about 5 years ago and worn it a bunch since then. So much that it was time for an upgrade! I had my eyes on this jacket for a few months now, but I’m so glad I waited. A few days ago I randomly came across it again and I managed to score it for just $25! I seriously could not blog about it soon enough to make sure you can get your hands on it too! I love it so far and already got so many compliments! I’m wearing a size 2 for a reference. If I could I would have gotten a size 4 as usual, but that was the only size available at the time. Still happy with it though! I love my jackets to be nicely fitted anyway.

If you’re into fashion, I bet you’ve been seeing the wedge espadrille takeover lately! I am guilty of wanting to buy them as soon as I saw some of my favorite bloggers wearing them. So happy I finally snatched them! I was particularly looking for a cheaper version of the famous Chloe ones, and I gotta say Steve Madden once again didn’t disappoint! At first, I was a bit hesitant to buy them because of the icky reviews online. However, I decided to skip this online purchase and check the shoes out in store. Needless to say, I fell in love right away! They’re very lightweight, fit perfectly and didn’t seem to put pressure on any part of my feet. I worn the shoes later that night for a housewarming party and I managed to stay in them all night without any blisters. I think for the first wear that’s pretty good! Another great buy that I highly recommend.

      I think I’ve seen the black one as well. Unfortunately, they’re not available online so you’d have to check it out at your local H&M store 😉 xo
