This summer I’ve really come to enjoy a lot of the fashion. For me, I tend to go for a certain colour palette. My wardrobe seems to consist of only black, grey, white, navy, blue & maybe beige. I love these neutral tones though, I can’t help it!
So far I’ve picked up a few pieces that I’ve felt really put together in, and although simple, make fabulous outfits for the summer time.
In particular, I’ve been enjoying the Bardot style tops, that have been flooding every retail store for the past 12 months. I find these very flattering on almost everyone. A definite must have for your summer wardrobe. I picked my one up from Kookaï on their Boxing Day sale, so it was at a fantastic price!
High waisted shorts are another love of mine. Gone are the days of low hipsters that’s for sure. High waisted tailored shorts, give you a clean sophisticated look, without trying too hard. I find they pull together any outfit and make it look just that little bit more dressed up. The shorts I purchased are again from Kookaï on their Boxing Day sale, however this is a typical cut they do, in a range of colours and patterns. These shorts have a subtle textured detail, which adds a little something extra. Paired with the top, they’re they perfect little summer outfit.
In terms of shoes, I decided to include both flats and wedges. These denim slides from forever new, have been worn to death already. They are so versatile and go with every outfit of mine – guess it pays to have that neutral coloured wardrobe! I’ve worn these with the Kookai outfit above, as well as simple playsuits, for a more casual look. If you’re after something a bit more dressy, try a pair of heels or wedges. These wedges were purchased from Kookaï on their Boxing Day sale, although they have a range of new heels at the moment, that are just as amazing! These dress up any outfit and are surprisingly comfortable. I’m most definitely a wedges type of girl!
I’m not really a dress kind of girl but I’ve been pushing myself to try and find some dresses that I can wear to work and during the weekend, that aren’t super casual. I found this maxi dress from witchery and fell in love with the soft and subtle tones they used, for the leopard print. The cut of this dress is very flattering with its elasticated waist and the fabric very light and flowy. The print also comes in a shorter dress style and top, if maxi dresses aren’t your thing.
I couldn’t resist buying this beautiful Seed Heritage sweetheart dress, when I tried it on. To me, it’s the perfect dress for a girls lunch, engagement party, the races or even summer dinner. I feel so feminine and girly when I wear this dress. The nude underlay accentuates the amazing anglaise style lace. Oh, did I mention it comes with detachable straps as well? If you have an event to go to this summer, this dress is a must have.
Sunglasses. I’ve always been the type to envy those with the beautiful designer sunnies. So, I guess that’s why these aviators from Quay Australia caught my attention. Designer look for an affordable price. It also means I won’t have a break down if something dared to happen to them, and they broke. These come in two different colours, I went for the black but they do also come in gold. These aviators just finish off any outfit. I absolutely love the oversized frame and mirrored lenses.
