Summer Lookbook

I like to call this the “I didn’t have time to get a pedicure so I’m wearing shoes” summer lookbook slash wishlist. Given the temperamental weather in the UK, it wouldn’t be surprising that I’m not prepared - or am I super prepared for the inevitable rainshowers by keeping my feet covered? You decide. Pairing a pair of shorts with a flannel (or flannel looking) shirt is all the rage, and for good reason. Perfect for the morning chill, and cute wrapped around your waist!

What’ll you be wearing this summer?

Dress Up with Ralph Lauren

Three beautiful dresses for three occasions this Summer. The simplicity of each piece speaks for itself and less is most definitely more this season.

I've picked out a crocheted double layered hem dress for a casual day chilling at the beach. This bohemian vibin' dress would look complete with a large brimmed sun-hat, and the holes from the crochet will ensure you don't overheat tanning in the sun!  The silk blend safari shirtdress makes for perfect and most importantly, comfortable office attire for your 9 - 5. The snakeskin debossed suede belt pulls in your waist in so you don't lose your figure in the material and what's more, you'll look perfectly put together and ready to enjoy the last rays of sun when the clock hits 5! Finally, a luxe silk organza with asymmetrical ruffled tiers is an absolute no brainer for prom! Date or not, you'll be wearing the most luxurious dress in the room.

Which is your favourite? Check out Ralph Lauren's dress collection here.

Baby Blue with Boohoo

Crochet sundress c/o Boohoo · fedora from H&M · boots from Topshop

This baby blue number from Boohoo would look perfect with a pair of white sandals, a cross shoulder fringe bag and then on the beach. Oh but the limitations of being in the UK means it's equally cute with a cardigan layered on top and a pair of chunky black boots. Keeping the rest of the outfit muted in black ensures the focus is on this chambray dress and the beautiful pattern in crochet. The layered design gives the impression of a two piece outfit and hides the elasticated waist band which makes this dress oh so comfortable to move around in. Perfect for an eight hour shopping trip, which is exactly what I did...

How are you spending your Bank Holiday Monday?
