Summer is rolling around and, as we all know, nothing beats living on the Gold Coast at this time of the year. Days spent at the beach, afternoon BBQs and hot balmy nights surrounded by great company. It’s the season to call on everything fun, vibrant and free.

Below are my four”must have’s” for surviving Gold Coast heat in style:

Ksubi from Joy Hysteric


Bold, brazen and confident prints are absolutely everywhere this season. From the runway to the streets – it’s a trend that anyone can pull off. Floral, geographic, stripes, tribal and abstract, prints come in a pattern to suit any mood of the week. My favourite print? The tropics, Joy Hysteric in Broadbeach have just received my favourite Ksubi pieces featuring hibiscus’s and palm trees which shout summertime in Queensland.

The humble denim short has been a wardrobe staple since Daisy Duke flaunted hers on our small screens. It provides the basis to any outfit and is a piece that you can take from the beach to the bar. This is a summer essential and my picks this season are One Teaspoon, Ksubi and Sass and Bide. Nothing screams Gold Coast summer quite like rockin’ a good pair of denim shorts.

Hot shades from the Sunglass Hut


Every woman needs an amazing pair of statement sunglasses on high rotation. My picks for this season are mirrored, cat-eye, retro and as always, the aviator and wayfarer styles are forever in style. No matter how well put together a outfit, without a great pair of sunglasses to finish it off, your look could fall short of fabulous! Sunglass Hut have all my favourites this summer so get in there to pick your perfect pair.

Witchery Nail Polish


And how could we forget one of my favourite beauty must haves for the warmer months… neon nails. Neon is a major trend coming through the runways, seen in block colours, on bags or in bright pops of colour. However, my favourite neon look is on the nails. It complements even the brightest of outfits and gives the overall look that you’re carefree, yet polished.
