Decked out in head to toe Chanel, I’m digging the playful vibe of Chiara’s print heavy ensemble. It reflects everything summer dressing should be; fresh prints, a simple silhouette and eccentric accessories.
Jewellery and I have a very on-again, off-again kind of relationship. I’ll spend a summer scouring online boutiques and vintage stores for dainty bracelets, super fine rings and simple chain pendants to layer up, then promptly forget all about our love affair come winter.
So lo and behold, now that the weather is warming up here in Paris (don’t let my chunky knit fool you) I’ve started adding the odd touch of bling to my sartorial routine from the online jewellery box that is Cold Lilies Boutique. It’s dainty, bordering on invisible, but it’s there.

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.
