Summer Essentials: Cafe Fashionista


Given the fact that my plan for summer 2010 is merely to have no plans at all, I have come to the conclusion that my summer essentials are only the very clothes found upon my back. You see, my loves, I am taking a page from both Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and the Mario Testino fashion editorial starring Daria Werbowy and Lily Donaldson, which was published in Vogue UK back in March 2008, to play the role of bohemian, beatnik beauty in the form of a mysterious femme fatale traversing foreign soil all by my lonesome. Thus the reason I must look completely chic yet comfortable from the beginning of my journey to the very end; and the five pieces I have selected will ensure that I adhere to that motif.

As much walking will ensue, Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent’s Luella Zip Wedge Sandals in a cognac hue will accommodate my tootsies, keeping them cozy yet classy during my journey. The J BRAND Lovestory 22” Jeans will provide a soothing, slimming effect to my form, adding a complementary bohemian flair via the bellbottom-like aesthetic. Ruthless locks will be kept out of my eyes with the assistance of American Apparel’s Wool Floppy Hat; while Forever 21’s Crochet Halter Top will keep me cool during my long hours strolling under the hot sun, whilst giving me the chance to flash a little sophisticated skin courtesy of the halter back. And to keep all of my newfound treasures safe from harm, JJ Winters’ Suede Fringe Bag will sway to and fro from its perch upon my shoulder. Cute boys beware; there’s a new girl in town, and her summer essentials are dyn-a-mite!

Thank you, Erika! Your picks are the epitome of bohemian glam!

  9. I've been eying that F21 crochet top. It's the perfect summer staple, whether you're at a BBQ, a music festival, the beach or just hanging out on your day off. I think I'm gonna head over the F21 and make it mine!
