With the sun shining outside and the temperatures skyrocketing, it’s time to enjoy the longer day hour. Unless you’re into a dark gothic mood and can’t wait for the darkness, Summer is the time to venture out and try different experiences. On that note, not all summers are built the same and despite the sunshine, there are one or a few summer aesthetics that will resonate more with your lifestyle. And it matters because it can help you plan your vacations and your budget and turn it into a much more fulfilling experience for your soul than just going with the flow. So, this is a visual post, with inspiring images of different summer aesthetics. My goal? That you feel naturally connected to the summer aesthetic that speaks to your soul.
Oh, and there’s no age limit, ok? I really dislike this judgmental policy of age-appropriate. It’s castrating and limiting (and probably increases anti-depressants sales) because time is relative and just because you’re 50 or got married doesn’t mean that you have to behave a certain way. I can’t wrap my mind around it. If you have peace of mind under the stereotypes, that’s wonderful, it’s not negative. But if you don’t, well, maybe it’s time to let some light shine in your heart! Have fun!

Boho Natural Summer Aesthetics
Like everything in life, the boho woman can be chic or on a budget, and the amount of money she puts into her adventures makes no difference to her soul’s purpose. This woman wants to be in contact with nature and she appreciates being off the grid, whether she is at the Azulik in Tulum or living in a van. It’s about getting as far away from city noises, harsh concrete buildings, and office hours and mingling with organic forms like bamboo constructions, the ocean water, or the forest.
Aesthetic summer activities for the boho-chic and natural: exploring Bali and Indonesia, camping, van road trips, forest hikes, and playing the guitar under the stars.
Minimal Chic Summer Aesthetics
The minimal chic woman will work hard to not put a sweat or look messy by the end of a summer day. She is likely to prefer the pool with an ocean view and a cooling tent. Her summer Instagram feed is neutral with the blue water being the only pop of color among beiges, greys, white, and black. This woman knows the most coveted beach clubs and she is likely to be (or wants to be) on the VIP lists for all of them.
Aesthetic summer activities for the chic minimal: shopping for perfect chic summer outfits, trips to Ibiza, Santorini, Lake Como, yacht stays, luxury hotels, and 5-star restaurants.
