The warmer weather has made summer shopping very tempting. Last week I picked out a few new summery things to add something new to my wardrobe…
For the first time in years I’m ready to contemplate wearing wide legged linen trousers again. I’m not particularly tall so I usually steer clear of such things in case they make my legs look stumpy. But I wanted a change from my usual spring wardrobe of skinny ankle skimmers. I found these linen trousers (£22.50) in Marks and Spencer and they’re a dream to wear – soft and drapey, but also smart and grown-up.
I think it needs a tucked in t-shirt – this is an old one from Boden, but they make the same ones every year and they’re a great investment.
After moaning last week that I never buy new shoes, I rectified the situation by buying two new pairs! These slip on pumps from H&M are a complete bargain at £7.99. They’re comfortable and look great with my dungarees (which always present a bit of a shoe dilemma).
I also bought some new sandals. I got them in a local independent shoe shop and I think they were quite a bargain for £34.99. They’re really comfortable and definitely pass the school run test! They’re by a brand called Marco Tozzi, which I’d never come across before, but I’ve managed to track them down online here (where they’re actually a little cheaper).
Lastly, I’ve also been channelling my inner My Little Pony with my new rainbow necklace (£7.50). The children are enamoured, as am I.
You can find it in my online shop, along with this little lemony number…
As I type this it’s pouring with rain again, but even if the weather takes a turn for the worse I’m determined to push on with the summer dressing!
Have you bought anything yet for summer?
