Some would say that the perfect combination of songs weaved together create the soundtrack of our lives. So, it’s no surprise that music is a huge part of our daily grind, but during summer, music is life. From beach days to poolside barbecues, we’re always on the hunt for the perfect playlist that evokes both feeling and festiveness.
We enlisted DJ Nikki Pennie, also known as the British Bardot, the premiere fashion SheJ (a term she coined), and Dior Beauty Ambassador, to create the ultimate summer music mix.
“Like the LBD, this is a versatile playlist that can easily go from day-to-night,” explains Nikki. “It’s eclectic with different beats and genres and a mix of new and old songs that make me think of summer. But most importantly, it’s a mix that should be listened to with friends while having fun – at the pool, the beach, or a barbecue!”
