Guest Post: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland **Fashion Must Haves**

I'm thrilled and honored to write a guest post for Helena .... She has one of the cutest blog in the entire blogland!

I'm Gaia , you can find me at my place Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, where I love to share all the things I love with all my new friends . I love fashion, I love photography, I love weddings, I love home decor, I love to write, I love crafts, I love to bake...

When she asked to write something I had a doubt till the end... weddings or fashion? I've chosen fashion... I'm more in fashion than in wedding, even if my dream is to organize events and in particular weddings, but that is another history...

Anyway... I love Summer because I love to stay barefoot at the beach all day long, because I love swim-suits, I love sandals and the dresses. I love summer because I feel free to wear whatever I like and I like ( a lot) to play with clothes...

My must-have are a classic and 'cause they are a classic I think everybody should have it in the wardrobe...

First of all.... Stripes... I like stripes. A classic blue and white or red and white, I make an exception for black and cream very classy and elegant ... I don't like multi colors stripes...
Stripes for shirts, dresses, pants, bags, shoes, pillows...wherever! I love it mixed with bright colors or polka dots and flower's pattern...

5) Top Shop; 6) Asos; 7) Espadrillas; 8) here

I love flat sandals and my Must Have are French Sandals... Les Tropeziennes, K Jacques St Tropez

Dresses. It could be a boy's shirt or long t-shirt weared with leggins, it could be a flower dress or one color... Dresses are feminine , fresh and elegant...
They are a passpartout... With ballerinas, or sandals or heels. It perfects for everyday's occasion. You change the accessories and it can be perfect for the office, for an aperitif with friends or for a romantic dinner...

1) Net-a-porter; 2) Coast;  3 - 4) Hoss Intropia; 5) Sonia by Sonia Rykiel

Accessories ... I love big sunglasses; bags; headbands, hats, scarfes, bracelets, bangles, necklaces and earring chandelier.
 They change your style and define your personality.
