The Organic Cotton Senorita Dress from Athleta. They come in the most delicious, organic colors. They come to just above the knee, they're super comfortable, flattering and machine washable. I wear them to clean around the house and dress them up when we go out to dinner. I purchased two last Summer and they are the first thing I reach for on a hot day. Casual, Summer perfection!
I have also been wearing my Shapeable Poolside Sun Hat quite a bit. I am the type who gets sunburn through a window on a Winter day, so the wider the brim, the better! I like this sun hat because it's crushable. You can pack it in a suitcase or bag and re-shape upon arrival.
During the Summer months, I always have a Sandalwood fan in my purse. At $0.65 a piece, I can't help but beat the heat in the NYC Subway with my own wind-chill factor.
I have two favorite shoe styles for Summer in the City. During the day, I love my Gizeh Liquid Gold Birkenstocks.
And at night, (or when I want a slightly more sophisticated, streamlined, but still comfortable look) I like to wear my kitten heel, nude color, Martha Davis peep toe mules. So cute and super comfortable for walking around!
Now that I have covered my Summer clothing must haves, I'd like to talk little about must haves for the home. First of all, one must have a fabulous iced beverage dispenser. For my own use, I selected the Simplicity Collection beverage dispenser from Chefs Catalog. I like it because the dispenser doesn't need to sit on the edge of the counter top.
And in the kitchen? I adore my Cherry Me Apron by The Hip Hostess. Because really, you can't get any more Summery in the kitchen than dressing up in a kicky sheath apron!
Don't forget to freshen up your kitchen counter top with these good looking vintage style pantry storage tins. Even though it's dreadfully hot outside, you'll find yourself wanting to bake breakfast scones and muffins!
And last, but not least, in the Summer I think it is imperative to keep a case of Veuve Clicquot 1/2 bottle splits on hand. It's so refreshing to have a wee-bit of champagne at the end of a long hot Summer day!
Thank you so much for having me guest post on your beautiful blog while you're in Greece.
