I’ve been buying a few summery items lately and have my eye on so many news finds, and realised I should probably share them with you, before they sell out! I’ll be in Marrakech as you read this, so you’ll probably spy me in a few of the buys below:
1. A Boilersuit
|In my Topshop boilersuit from last summer – one of my best ever buys|
The difference between a jumpsuit and a boilersuit? The boiler is more relaxed, boyish and generally has shirt sleeves. And it looks just as great with heels as it does dressed down with trainers or chunky flats.

2. Lace-up sandals
Yes, chunky flats are still in (don’t ditch the Birks, just yet) but I am upping my flats game with a pair of lace-up Roman sandals.

You can go High Street for these – Topshop and Zara’s pairs are already selling out – but I’ve used this as an excuse to buy some Ancient Greek Sandals, a totally classic style which have been on my wishlist for ages.
|My Ancient Greek Sandals with fringed skirt, £24.99, H+M|
|Leather ‘Alcyone’ sandals, £110, Ancient Greek Sandals at My Theresa|
3. A Suede Skirt

|Suede skirt, £99.99, H+M|
|Dress, £35.99, Zara|
|White lace trim top, £22.99, New Look|
|Cotton tassel tunic, £45, Next|
5. A Khaki Shirt
The easiest way to tap into the utility trend – a khaki shirt will offset a pair of blue jeans perfectly. And then wear over a bikini on your holiday…
|Cotton shirt, £12.74, H+M|
And if you’re feeling daring…pair with my latest obsession (which has even taken me by surprise) – white denim. I’ve recently bought white boyfriend jeans AND white dungarees – not sure what has come over me!
