Personal style

Hydrangea

ASOS fedora hat, APC linen tee (similar black linen tank here), Urban Outfitters vintage overalls (more denim overalls available here and here) and black Birkenstocks

I’m more than a little partial to hydrangeas (as evidenced here and here), so I was rather happy to discover that the cobbled streets of Korcula, Croatia were lined with endless pink blooms. So many of Croatia’s islands had hydrangeas dotted all over; it was such a romantic touch to the already picturesque sea-side villages.

Despite the fact that sometimes these overalls make me feel all of twelve years old, they have served me well this year… What is it about this 90′s piece of denim which feels so summer appropriate?

All In

Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Topshop silk strappy jumpsuit, Topshop black tee jumpsuit and Birkenstocks (similar black double-strap sandals here and here)

Less will always be more – especially in the heat – and these Topshop jumpsuits have been giving the rest of my wardrobe a run for it’s money this summer. Super fine silk, built-in pockets and zero effort required to pull an outfit together.

And yes, I took a trip to Glasshouse Salon last week and dipped my head in a touch of blue. It’s semi-permanent, so expect a lot of blue-hued action over here for the next few weeks. Blue skies, blue hair, blue walls…

First Base

Nick Campbell sunglasses, Wishbone leather skirt, Elena Ghisellini leopard bag and RMK sandals worn with Wishbone grey tee, Vaughan silk shirt and A.P.C linen tee

Every girl needs a few key staples in her wardrobe. Pieces which can be paired with pretty much anything and require minimal effort when getting dressed in the morning. Enter; this classic leather skirt from Wishbone. Sleek, timeless and effortlessly understated; it’s the perfect base for any outfit.

And if you’re in London this month, Wishbone have a pop-up store in Knightsbridge until the end of July. If you need to get your wardrobe staples in order, now is the time.

Leather Work

Tamara Mellon cashmere tee and leather legging boots

Only in London could you get away with leather pants in summer. That’s not even a complaint – I’m all for wearing leather year round – even in July. So it’s rather convenient that Tamara Mellon have just launched their UK site, where I picked up these leather trousers come leg-lengthening apparatus. Part trousers, part boots, these leather beauties somehow have the power to make even the shortest of legs (mine) look somewhat long…

You can get in on the year round leather appreciation (with a cheeky 15% off) using the code TMSTYLE15 at Tamara Mellon right here. Leather for life, amiright?
