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:

  • Let’s start with swimwear. Baywatch-inspired one-pieces are all the rage – especially ones with cute quotes on them. This “un-Mean Girl” suit is only $28.99!
  • Metallic sunglasses look really cute in photos – and you don’t have to worry about applying makeup. I’m loving this rose-gold pair, and they’re under $20 shipped.
  • If you don’t want to wear a kimono as a swimsuit cover-up – choose this pink tassel cover-up instead. It will look perfect in those “staring off into the distance” scenery shots.

Summer Essentials that will look great in your Instagram pics

  • Tassels and pom poms make everything look SO much better – which is why this embellished beach tote is the perfect accessory to complement your beach OOTDs!
  • If a pool party doesn’t include a couple of giant floaties – can you really call it a party? There are so many adorable options to choose from…although I love the unicorn floatie – my heart belongs to this pink flamingo
  • Another must-have for those “staring off into the scenery shots” OR to include in your packing flatlay picsembroidered hats are EVERYWHERE. Luckily these hats are a guilt-free purchase since they provide much needed sun protection too!

    I love kimonos and this one is so cute in pink! The styling is great too with the pumps. I'll have to try it! I normally don't think about buying something just for the gram but I can see why other bloggers do!
