7 Key Wardrobe Pieces For Summer

7 Key Wardrobe Pieces For Summer

Dare I say it, but summer might have arrived…10 days in and this consistent sunshine is glorious.  I love the idea of being more playful when it comes to summer dressing, but in reality I really need staples to anchor my wardrobe so that my morning routine is simple and I can get out of the door quickly (who else snoozes their alarm?).

Why Midsummer Is The Most Important Day In The Swedish Calendar

Today is the longest day of the year, to us British it’s Summer Solstice. However, in Sweden, they celebrate a slightly different version and one which is full of celebration. Continue reading “Why Midsummer Is The Most Important Day In The Swedish Calendar”

Peek-A-Boo

It finally happened; Summer…or at least the very start of it has arrived!

We have had the joy of two glorious days of blue skies and warmth so far, it has had me clambering for my summer wardrobe and digging out anything loose and flowy.

After a ruthless review of my clothes which haven’t seen daylight for approximately 9 months (a shockingly long Winter), I did a huge detox and managed to edit 3 recycling bags of clothes/bags to my local charity shop. When I am not wearing it anymore I would rather see it go to a good home and for someone else to love it as much as I once did.

With that in mind I do have my eye on a few things, in particular I have seen a lot of amazing silk camisoles and tops with interesting details to them and of course strappy or backless. There is something very sexy about showing off the curves of your back, something which we don’t very often either which I guess makes it more sultry. It is also pretty liberating not having to wear a bra and a welcome feel when the temperatures rise!

Above are a few of my favourite styles I have seen lately and will be keeping my eye out for something similar to add to my wardrobe. Whatever style you go for, it is sure to take you from office to bar with the use of some casual layering in the day and showing off your back come night.

 

J.Crew New and Now

It’s been a long, overdue post. Life got in the way, well mainly working got in the way and I have been missing this outlet where I can post about all the things I love in the here and now. So with that in mind, my first post had to be something which I was obsessing about. And, no change, it’s J Crew.

J.Crew is my favourite brand, my go to for inspiration, the trendsetters and game changers; reinventing the smart everyday basics into the unexpected. This drop for June is no different and has left me pining for it all.

My favourite looks are above featuring what I would love in my Summer wardrobe: a casual linen shirt, a super flattering tulip skirt, a boho off the shoulder top for the perfect cross between casual and sexy, a striped clutch (because stripes are always cool) and then the faithful jumpsuit with barely there straps.

Last but not least, the jewels! I can rarely say there isn’t a piece I don’t want from the accessories collection.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, then do it now and do it quick; certain pieces have already sold out. There’s one simple rule with J.Crew, if you love it then buy it!
