I love dressing for summer. When the weather’s warmer I feel so much happier and inspired. I’m sure I’ll have lots of favourite clothes and accessories as the months go on, but right now this is wear I’m at.
Mixing textures. Right now I’m loving lots of different weaves and fabrics. Wool and jute, gold and leather. It feels natural and effortless and perfect for the soft days of early summer.
A throw-on cardigan. You can always rely on the weather to be unpredictable. And you’ll never regret throwing a cardigan in your bag at the last-minute. This cable cardigan, a present sent to me by Celtic & Co, is everything you need in a summer throw-on. It’s structured, so works well in place of a jacket. It’s also made right here in the UK and it’s as British as cricket matches and cucumber sandwiches. You can view their Women’s Knitwear here.
Gold jewellery. Gold hoops are always a summer classic. Coin necklaces are also a big deal right now. At £18, this gold-plated one by ASOS is really affordable.
A jute bag. I’ve already waxed lyrical about string bags and baskets this summer. Now it’s the turn of jute. I love the stripes, the shape and the natural feel. This one is ethically produced by Turtle Bags and I found it a fabulous interiors shop called Forest London. I recently stumbled across it on Clerkenwell Road and it’s well worth a visit.
Simple tan sandals. I’m currently eyeing up a pair of Saltwater sandals, but these New Look sandals are filling the gap for now. The cute low heel is very flattering.
