Summer Edit

A British blogger first and foremost, around now I’m used to getting my summer wardrobe in order, but now I’m living in Sydney it’s all about the winter wardrobe.

It can get confusing with two opposite seasons happening at the same time. Most of my posts have been about cosying up in chunky knits, grey tones and layering but I’ve put together a summer wish list of items for those of you in the northern hemisphere. Seeing as the cold snap here lasts around 8 weeks(!), I too shall be indulging in a few of these items….(namely the boots, the Birks, the bellbottoms and the Mazzy skirt ♥)

Key pieces you should think about investing in:

  • A pretty kimono (unleash your inner hippie)
  • A denim skirt (once so unfashionable, but now an easy, on trend addition to the summer wardrobe – just get the shape right. Don’t go mini.)
  • Birkenstocks/slides (some say ugly, but I say damn comfy and on the mark this season)
