How to wear -my top 5 Summer essentials

Continuing on from my previous blog, I thought I would put together some outfits and show you just 1 of the ways I would wear my top 5 summer essentials.

I am not here to get to you to buy new things, only to give you inspiration. You probably have similar items in your wardobe already. There are so many ways you could wear these summer items but I have chosen my favourite.

1. The Sun dress

I love how easy it is to throw a denim jacket over a summer dress, the colours in this one are really brought out by the cool blue of the denim. Complete the look with some flat sandals and a basket bag. Simple summer chic.

Odelia midi dress
Hush £99
Denim jacket
Jigsaw £99
Birkenstock’s double strap vegan sandals
Via John Lewis £60
Compass pendant
& other stories £19
Martha cross body
Lk Bennett £56 (was £70)

2. The shorts

Shorts and a tee all day long for an easy to wear look, but actually my favourite way to wear these shorts is to add a floaty long sleeve blouse , as covering the arms really balances out the outfit. Wear with flat sandals or trainers for a laid back pretty look.

Sydney chino shorts
Hush £49
Embroidered puff sleeve blouse
Mango £49.99
Basset coin earrings
hush £28
HM £12.99
Veja esplar canvas
& other stories £80

3. The Breton tee

The Breton tee really does goes with everything and denim in particular. My favourite combination is actually to wear a Breton with khaki trousers and a denim jacket. I always feel stylish and it’s such an easy to wear look day to day.

Short sleeve Breton
Boden £25
Calia denim jacket
Hush £75
Braided tote
Zara £25.99
Pleated trousers
Mango £35.99
Veja via office £89.99

4. The light blazer

A light coloured summer blazer you can throw over any dress or smarten up your jeans and a tee with instantly. I love a blazer over a jumpsuit for a going out outfit, pair with heeled sandals or my favourite summer wedges for an elevated look.

Linen blazer
M&S £45
Animal print jumpsuit
monsoon £65
Braided tote
Zara £25.99
Multi chain
& other stories £23
Kurt Geiger £99

5. The midi skirt

A patterned midi skirt for the warmer months is really a great investment. Wear with trainers and a tee for the school run or with a nice top for going out. My favourite way to wear this skirt would be with a lux vest top and flat sandals, mixing just a little bit of dressed up with casual.

Military jacket
hush £75
silk front vest R
Reiss £85
Leopard midi
Jigsaw £110
Loupe sliders tan
dune £68 ( were £85)
Double strap
Mango £35.99

Which is your favourite?
