Summer Essentials for That Perfect Instagram Shot

Fashion bloggers are guilty of buying it for the 'gram... we often purchase items - not just because we like them - but ALSO because we think they will look good in our blog and instagram photos!

Take this floral kimono for example - I bought it because it's silky, pretty and comfortable to wear. But I also chose it because it photographs beautifully - it's lightweight and flowy - which provides a lot of movement and adds interest to an outfit shot. Another bonus is that it also works as a swimsuit cover-up, so it's multi-functional too!

In today's post I'm sharing my top 6 Instagram-worthy summer essentials - whether you're at the beach or lounging by a pool - these items will make every photo picture perfect! Read on and let me know if you already own any of these items:

Shopping for Summer Skincare

I've always dreamed of holidaying on a Greek Island - and this summer - my wish is finally coming true, as we're heading to Santorini for our second honeymoon (ok...wedding anniversary - but it's sort of the same thing, right?)


I've booked our flights and hotel, but there is so much planning left to do. Where to go, what to pack...I have a lot to think about! I know it's going to be hot hot hot - so I've been checking out the summer skincare essentials at Shoppers Drug Mart.

All of the Pink with Le Chateau

You know that feeling when you've "invested" in a couple of bags...and you shouldn't be buying any more bags YET you keep spotting beauties you can't pass up? That's the story between me and this grey circle crossbody bag from Le Chateau.

This bag is perfection - I feel like it will go with any outfit. Its light colour looks so lovely with light summer fabrics, but it will also pair well with sweaters and coats later on in the year. I'm so excited to be working with Le Chateau on another outfit post - because they have SO many pretty things in store right now!

Who Takes Your Outfit Photos?

I know a lot of bloggers work with professional photographers - and I can see how that can be very efficient: you only have to get glammed up once, and you can take a couple of weeks worth of photos in one go. But I'm not ready to take that step yet...here's why:

1) I'm just so comfortable with my #InstagramHusband - let's be honest, it's not like taking photos of me is Hubby's FAVOURITE thing to do! BUT - he is happy to commit to one session a week. He sees what a difference good photography makes to my blog - and he knows how important my blog is to me. Because he's my husband - I can tell him exactly what I want from a photo - he has a good eye, but is also completely open to instruction - and will frame the shot exactly how I want it. (p.s. it works both ways - I help Hubby a lot with his work too!)

Time for Tea

My first memorable Tea experience was when I spent my Junior year abroad in London. A group of my Wellesley friends decided to meet up at a well-known hotel for Traditional Afternoon Tea. I was 19, and I remember how grown up I felt - living in a different country and taking part in something so elegant and fancy.

In my opinion, a Traditional Afternoon Tea is the perfect experience to share with girlfriends - you get to wear your prettiest tea dresses, lounge around on comfortable sofas and nibble on dainty and delicious snacks!
