Minimal, monochrome, whatever you want to call it, sometimes there’s nothing cooler than a lack of colour. A simple black mini and a slouchy white tee is the easiest summer uniform around – just keep an oversized jacket or slouchy jumper on hand for when the sun goes down.
Truth be told, the notion of festival dressing is something which as evaded me somewhat. Yes you need to be prepared for the heat/rain/mud/lack of bathrooms but why not dress in a similar vein to you normally do?
Festival dressing should be an extension of what you normally wear, albeit just a little more practical. Which is wear Hunter Boots comes in. I have a few of shows and festivals in Paris this summer where I’ll be waving the normcore flag for festival dressing (think denim, leather, and a lot of black and white) with footwear that can stand all seasons and still come out the other side.

The humble off the shoulder top is back, and it’s most recent incarnation is all kinds of cool. With it’s beachy vibes and exposed décolletage it’s slouchy, relaxed and just a little bit sexy…
I’ve always had a penchant for good cocktails (surprise, surprise) but it’s only really been since Sam and I moved to Paris this year that we have gotten into making our own. Whiskey Sour Friday’s, Bloody Mary Sunday’s… You get the idea.
There’s something just so satisfying about nailing the perfect drink come cocktail hour. And this past week it has been all about experimenting with the newest concoction to our rotation, Ciroc Vodka’s Summer Punch. Fruity and sweet (but with a decent kick), it’s the kind of drink which requires plenty of ice and a balmy summers eve…
And in the name developing my cocktail repertoire, I’m off to UK soon for the London Riviera Ciroc pop up where the aim of the game is to learn how to mix drinks like a boss at their School of Mixology. Tom Cruise eat your heart out.
