BRITISH SUMMER VIBES



Oh England, I truly love you but the summer around here is all kinds of unpredictable. This outfit is a little bit of a lie because really, if you are foolish enough to wear white trainers on a gloomy day like I did, you WILL catch the rain - and your wet top will show your bra. Been there, done that, it was embarrassing. However on a good day I love rocking white shirts, denim and a nice pair of Keds

A couple of weeks ago I attended a pretty awesome event at ASOS HQ where I got to fell in love with a shoe brand I have seen many of my friends wear and praise for years - Keds! Taylor Swift and Kate Spade have their own collaborations with this brand and I like how simple yet extremely personal their shoes can be. There' a pair for literally everyone, no matter your style or look. 

Of course you guys know I'm all about simplicity so I was instantly attracted to the triple white core plimsoll trainers* as they're classic but a little different as they have a higher platform. The upper part is made of canvas and as you can see from the photos, they have a lace up closure which is my favourite.  Despite being white they're not as delicate as you may think, and if any scuff or dirt appears, you can easily remove it with a warm cloth. I like shoes that can be lived in without needing to watch your every step. 

Ripped jeans are my thing in the summer as I don't really tend to wear blue denim in winter, it's just a weird thing I do. This boyfriend style is from a Zara sale from last year BUT you can find some pretty identical copies in River Island at the moment. Yes, no shorts just yet because I live by the sea and the wind can still be a little cold. As for that shirt, ah, an absolute essential for summer from Urban Outfitters that you can get here. It's so light and if you wear a skin-colour bra you will have no issues with it being a little see-through. 

The bag is the newest addition to my collection and it's from Gucci. I will do a full review on it next week so keep your eyes peeled. 

I'd love to know what your go-to summer outfit is like and any of your favourite fashion statements at the moment.

  5. Simple yet chic. My favourite item this season has been my beloved ripped boyfriend jeans, as an alternative to my regular skinnies, as there are honestly endless opportunities to style with them! :)
