Summer Essentials

summer outfit

Last Sunday we spent at the Mosman Marina, one of our favorite Sydney spots. It’s one of these rare places in Sydney that isn’t overcrowded on the weekends.

For the outing (that of course, involved picnic) I wore this simple black and white outfit that included all of my summer essentials. The trusty white jeans (also worn here, here and here), a Marcs bag that is barely alive and Zara sandals that are so comfy I’m wearing them almost everyday. The final pieces are a brand new turtle neck top and a watch from Shopbop. They perfectly compliment my existing summer wardrobe which is not a coincidence, although they were a gift from my wonderful fiancee, I took the precaution of choosing them myself!

Speaking of watches… a good watch is to an outfit what a cherry is to the  top of a cake, a crowning jewell, so to speak. Say, imagine this outfit without a watch… it wouldn’t look the same.

    Looking very nautical chic there Maria! And I love the new watch bling, I have been looking at watches too. Such a great investment, because of the time keeping but also it can add a statement to an outfit. Great photos on a beautiful day :)
