I’ve actually lost count of the amount of peasant tops I own now. But it doesn’t stop me from trying new ones. They’re just so easy to wear, and paired with cropped flared jeans and a basket bag, it fulfils a Jane Birkin-esque 70s vibe I am always attempting to recreate come summer.
This Great Plains top is good quality and the grey embroidery works well with both holiday and weekend wardrobes. Plus it’s in the sale…

We’ve come to that time of the year sadly when summer clothes are all in the sale or sold out (I’ve barely worn these Mango shoes, which have gone down to £12.99 already!), and we’re starting to contemplate new A/W styles, despite the weather just starting to get hot! I’m embracing the cropped bell bottom jeans for next season and will wear these with boots when winter hits. Frays and looser fitting denim styles are definitely in (and in fact, I’ve just done an interview for ELLE discussing the death of skinny jeans).
We photographed these in Bayswater before the heavens opened up (yet again). We had breakfast at Farmacy, a plant-based restaurant (the buckwheat pancakes were to die for) before shooting in the lovely streets, imagining we lived there. It felt a long way from our current new house search, which is happening around E17 at the moment.
I’m still carrying most of my wares in an oversized basket bag, it just fits everything inside and adds a hint of summer to my mainly wintery looks of late.
