Weekends Away

26 Jun

So, summer has arrived, bringing with it beautiful, long weekends spent at the houses of friends and relatives or trips to the coast and countryside. It’s so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of London and spend long, lazy days outdoors with nothing but an ice-cold drink, an absorbing read and good company. Here are my brightly coloured essentials for my summer travels.

1. Union Jack Weekender, £37. Accessorize.

2. Tie Dye Chiffon Beach Bando, £4. Accessorize.

3. 3 Milly Butterfly Charm Ombre Plastic Sunglasses, £15. Accessorize.

4. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

5. Sports Watch in Coral Orange, £20. Oasis.

6. MOLESKINE Large Plain Notebook, £12.99

One of a Kind

8 Jun

Whilst browsing for style inspiration earlier, I came across a picture of, um, an Olsen and whilst originally glancing at it quickly as just a rather plain casual outfit, I did a double-take and realised that, in fact, I liked it very much. The way in which the sparkly evening bag is pared with a very casual slouchy outfit makes me very happy indeed makes it look effortless and quirky at the same time. And whilst I despise white sunglasses (so have substituted with tortoiseshell) this. on the whole, is a look that I could live in for a long time. Plus, with my recent bag downsizing agenda, this is a perfect solution.

1. Leather Weave Belt in Pale Camel, £25. Oasis.

2. Choc Raglan Grandad T-Shirt, £15. Dorothy Perkins.

3. Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer in Light Tortoise, £88. Sunglasses-Shop.co.uk

4. Chain Envelope Gold Turnlock Cross Body Bag, £20. Accessorize.

Hippy Chic

5 Jun

We threw a party last night and despite copious cocktails and a 5am bedtime, I woke up this morning only a few hours after going to sleep feeling incredibly bright and spritely and cleaned the flat from top to bottom. It’s now spotless and I find myself sat stretched out on the sofa looking out over a beautiful sunny day whilst everyone is still asleep upstairs . All this hot weather is making me want to break away from my usual style of clean lines and neutral colours to embrace the hippy within with patterns, prints, swishy fabrics, bright colours, bangles and beads.

1. Chain Floppy Hat, £22. Topshop.

2. Floral Bandeau Maxi Dress, £30. Topshop.

3. Pink Printed Maxi Dress, £30. Miss Selfridge.

4. Farrin Printed Maxi Dress, £430. Diane von Furstenberg.

5. Belle & Mimi Shell Detail Cuff Sandal, £40. Barratts.

6. 8 80s Tortoise Flat Top Plastic Sunglasses, £14. Accesorize.
