This Week’s Five Essential Summer Picks.

Every week I trawl the furthest corners of the Internet to find you five favourite styles for the season (along with a couple from our own store too).  I love it, it’s like shopping without the credit card bill.

 All of these styles are designed to work as an outfit or, if you prefer, on their own.  

Mos Mosh Kate Tee in Coral

This fabulous little tee comes in other colours too but I love this soft coral.  Being a warm pink it will work with most skin tones and (bonus) look amazing with a tan.  It has a delicate shimmer to the fabric so you can take it from oh so casual to relaxed glamour, just by adding some heels and statement jewellery.

There are several UK retailers selling this gorgeous top at around £49 but The Shoe Gallery  currently has it with 5% off.


Vera Moda Khaki Green Tie Waist Wide Crop Trouser


Staying smart and cool in this hot, hot weather is pretty much impossible but breathable fabrics and a little bit of extra material helps.

Did I tell you I consider Khaki to be a neutral?  If you just hate the thought of wearing black or grey in the summertime and beige-y tones just aren’t your thing; khaki is a great alternative.  Super chic with white, it will also make your brights pop and (can I just say) will look just gorgeous with the Mos Mosh Tee.  And don’t worry if you don’t suit khaki - you’re not wearing it next to your face.

These super Vera Moda trousers tick all the boxes with their flattering tie waist detail, cropped leg and breathable fabric.  At just £36 they are a great buy and you can find them at View Boutique Ludlow

 MJUS Tapista Sandals in Khaki/Leopard

If you are going on holiday and need to travel light OR you simply want a summer shoe that will do everything, this is the style for you.  They’re like walking on a cloud.  You can wear these stomping around town all day and then sit down to dinner without needing to change.  MJUS do this style every year in different colour ways but this khaki, silver and subtle leopard version gets our vote.  £110 from OSO Boutique Salisbury  and worth every single penny.

 Pocket Tote Bag

When you’re running around in warm weather, the last thing you need to be doing is carrying a huge handbag. In vegan leather this super little tote has plenty of storage space for your essentials (hence the name) and comes in a range of fabulous colour ways. There’s two removable straps including a colourful nylon one, so you can use it as a shoulder bag or cross-body if you’re travelling.

Our choice for summer is the tan version and at just £45 it’s a great price.

Cat Eye Sunnies

 If you’re travelling around, the item you’re most likely to lose is your sunglasses, so it’s best to choose a pair that are stylish and yet inexpensive, whilst offering you the UV protection you need.   Our Cassie Cat Eye sunnies are only £19.99 and a great way to top off this look.


Total look £355
