Autumn/Winter collections are now out in the shops making it difficult to buy anything for our summer holiday’s unless you can find it on the sale rails or shop online at brands like NEXT and Very who offer the basics all year round.
In my last post I mentioned a few items I purchased for my Italian trip, I can’t promise you can still get them, but I’ve been really pleased with them, so here are three items I’m loving!
This small cross-body bag was perfect for day and for night. I opted for gold as a lot of my accessories, shoes and jewellery work best with that colour. If you have cool skin tone, so your colourings are Winter or Summer, the silver version would suit you better.
You can get this bag in a variety of colours…
The dress I wore to Capri was perfect for summer daytime, I love the style of t-shirt dresses, but this one designed by Label Lab is brilliant if your body shape is hour-glass as they have nipped and tucked the material so that it fits your curves!
This dress is also available where the light blue is either just white or it fades into orange. Team this dress up with flip-flops, a summer hat and a small bag and your ready to go!
And finally, I know it’s a little expensive for a day dress, but this red/orange linen dress from Whistles is a fabulous way to keep cool on a hot day. Not really designed for an hour-glass body shape, the cocoon fit makes it quite loose around the waistline so I purchased a size smaller than I would normally wear to try and reduce this affect.
I’ve had so many nice compliments whilst wearing this dress, however it doesn’t travel well in a suitcase, so you’ll need access to an iron!
