Four Summer Must Haves
I recently saw a commercial about what some big store thinks are the Four Essential Clothing Items/Accessories needed for a fun summer.1. A cute bikini 2. An adorable little clutch or handbag (this is Marc Jacobs) for easy conversion from the beach to the club 3. A black mini dress… hey, just throw it in your little handbag! 4. The perfect sunglasses. (pictured here: D&G $300) Clearly I am not the key demographic. If marketing research companies were directing their ad campaigns towards me, I think they would be choosing some slightly different items to entice the dollars out of my wallet.The Four MUST HAVES for Summer!1. black T-shirt 2. another black t-shirt 3. huge, somewhat trendy tote, that doubles as diaper bag & purse 4. Over-sized sunglasses purchased in bulk at Sam’s Club I wear lots of blacks T-shirts and jeans and over-sized sunglasses… why over-sized? Because I already wear prescription glasses, and they just fit right over them… not exactly classy. Yes, even a little trashy. How about you…do you have any “must haves” for this summer? meet Amanda RettkeAmanda Rettke is the creator of I Am Baker, and the bestselling author of Surprise Inside Cakes: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion – With a Little Something Extra Inside.Over the course of her 15+ year blogging adventure, she has been featured in and collaborated with the Food Network, New York Times, LA Times, Country Living Magazine, People Magazine, Epicurious, Brides, Romantic Homes, life:beautiful, Publishers Weekly, The Daily Mail, Star Tribune, The Globe and Mail, DailyCandy, YumSugar, The Knot, The Kitchn, and Parade, to name a few.
