I’ve been in dire need of some serious summer attire but haven’t really had the time to dedicate an entire day to shopping; it’s been quite a busy couple of weeks for me. But since we were planning on taking in some much needed vitamin D at the beach next weekend, I headed over to City Centre Beirut to finally pick out some must-have summer pieces in my wardrobe. I wanted to pack up some trendy essentials that would both work during a day in the sun and for sunset cocktails.
So I’ve documented a few of my favorite finds all of which are currently available at these stores at City Centre Beirut.
First up a summer staple; short shorts, and I wanted to change things up from the typical denim ones so I choose this magenta pink pair from Jack Wills, exclusive to City Centre Beirut. They’re also available in a white, green and orange if pink is not your thing.
I matched them with breezy pair of feminine lace espadrilles I found at Pieces. Love how these things just slip right on and off and can even be worn instead of flip flops to the beach
And I fell in love with this very cool print summer Tee at Juicy Couture that matched perfectly.
I was also on the hunt for an eccentric statement pair of summer sunnies, something fun and vibrant that would stand out. So I made my way to Beyond Optics also exclusive to City Centre Beirut and fell in love with this pair Stella McCartney green peaked cat eye sunglasses with fabulous gold mirror lenses.
For the sunset cocktails and dinner, I chose a navy print floor length gown also from Juicy Couture, I love how flowy and light it felt on and I styled it with this cute Juicy Couture micro bag that can also be worn as a cross over.
And finally no summer shopping is complete without a swimsuit and since monokinis are this season’s hottest trend, I fell in love with this Juicy Couture 50’s one which matched my Stella McCartney sunnies. I styled them with this pair of floral platforms from Pieces which are ideal to switch up any beach outfit and went perfectly with the shorts and dress.
Hope you enjoyed my beach selection. I’ll be posting a summer essential list very soon on the blog.
