Slingbacks and Stripes
I'm a big fan of summer fashion. When it comes to styling myself for events, for date nights and even for once in a lifetime road trips through the Alps, Summer makes it all so simple, lightweight and so much fun. No layers needed, just key transitional pieces that you can mix and match with the most bold of accessories and the chicest of settings.
Take this outfit, matched (accidentally) perfectly with the incredible vintage Bentley if I say so myself, but it screams playful, fun and chic - the epitome of what Summer styling should be. A pop of colour, the biggest sun hat I could find and an outfit to take me from driver to passenger in the blink of an eye. If only Alex could drive.
This Summer I've seen an abundance of sleek stripes, my favourite slingback style gracing everyone from Princesses to Bloggers, and the revamp of the holiday tote into a luxury wardrobe addition. Here are my favourite Summer trends right now and what I think you may like to add to your wardrobe before the season is out.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES
I always like to keep my finishing touches minimal and more in-keeping with my basic/classic style than any other part of my outfit. You'll often find, in Summer especially, my choices of jewellery can be so minimal they sometimes don't even exist. Most commonly you'll see me alternate between my favourite watches, my Dior earrings that I almost never take out my ears, and generally embracing a more paired down look to let my outfit do the talking. A wide brim sunhat is a must for any sunshine holiday though, especially for saving your hair. Walking barefoot in the Maldives or having a picnic in Hyde park, you'll always need a classic straw hat. As for my beauty picks for the hot weather, who wants to be covered in layers of makeup? You'll find me for the foreseeable future rocking a light coverage base, a bronzed complexion and my ever faithful nude lip.
