While we wait in line for our pumpkin spice lattes and dig out our chunky knit sweaters from the back of our closets, we can't help but reminisce about the warmer summer weather. And Bella Hadid is proving that celebs are just like us, as she's posted a throwback photoset from July on Instagram.

Bella shared the ultimate seaside 'fit from earlier this summer. Snapping a pic with a clear blue ocean as her scenery, the supermodel kept it beachy and bare for her Hot Girl Summer, hot weather look. The top is giving absolute piratecore, with a black bra hidden beneath an underwire white top with an oversized collar and puffed short sleeves. Cropped just under her bust, Bella's shirt gave her midriff a starring role in the bombshell outfit.

Keeping in theme with the neutral color scheme, Bella chose a pale pink, low-waisted slip skirt. Teeny black thong strings peeked out over the lace detailing at the hips, bringing back the ~controversial~ Y2K "whale tail" trend. Ofc, this isn't the first time we've seen her make a case for the comeback of a noughties trend. Just this summer alone, she's convinced us that rhinestone hip tattoos and stretch headbands should be a staple in our accessories lineup.

Adding a glam touch to her effortlessly-stylish vibe, Hadid piled on shiny gold accessories including the Classic Cylinder Bangles from Jennifer Fisher Jewelry, The Year Ring from The M Jewelers, Shay Jewelry's Diamond Baguette Pave Pinky Ring, and the Ruby Chunky Gem Ring by Short & Suite. Her showstopping, heart-shaped drop earrings complete with ruby-red onyx are from the French costume jewelry designer Khaïden Bijoux.

To keep track of her tanning time, Bella wore the timeless Cartier watch, Panthère de Cartier. Clocking in at $19,600, let's hope she took this off before going for a dip. The Kin Euphorics founder finished her 'fit off with the Dmy By Dmy Valentina Sunglasses and a tropical printed headscarf.

ICYMI, our girlie Bella has been flexing her style chops lately, showing off her quirky and sporty side with big sis Gigi Hadid, nailing the balletcore trend, and doing denim-on-denim for date night with BF Marc Kalman. If you need us, we'll be patiently waiting for the next off-duty model 'fit to drop over on Bella's IG.
