1: Berets paired with summer dresses
If you have been following me on social then you know I’m beret obsessed! Nothing beats a beret, it gives off that chic look to pretty much any outfit! Actually for me it completes the outfit. I just love the way these gals have paired the notoriously winter hat for the summer. So dont pack your wool berets just yet, you can still rock them for another season!!
2 broderie anglaise, ruffles, and lace up
Im a complete sucker for ruffles, broderie anglaise, and lace up. I recently received a dress by Tobi (HERE) which reminds me of these above photos. I need to up my tanning game as currently I am as white as these crisp fabrics. The bronzed look and these feminine beauties, make me go gaga!
3: Mid length skirts
Ive never been a big fan of midi, but this season I’ll be adding a few of these babies into my wardrobe! Jeanne Damas is always the inspo. She wears them so good, and I love how she paired her midi skirt with a tight cardi… (buying now!)
4 Straw Hats
Nothing says “Summer” like a straw hat. Im a mega hat person, and actually feel much better when I have something on my head! I’ve found a few seriously cute options which I’ve linked below.
5: Button down tops
Here’s a spring/summer wardrobe staple. I LOVE big buttons right now, they give that ‘Extra’ to that basic top! Again, can we just look at that bronzed tan… Honestly If I get one of those this summer it will be a miracle. If your a city Mom, without a garden, and have a wild 4 year old you will understand! *Brings out the fake tan*
6: Cherry everything
As far back as I can remember I’ve been a sucker for cherries! I can remember my first day at 8th grade I wore a Forever 21 tight top with ruched shoulders and cherries. I still think about that top, and wish I still had it. So glad to see cherries in the stores right now, and hoping ill find my replica 8th grade top! BTW & other stories has a blouse just like this one!

Winters arrival signals the start of turtle necks! I wear them over a thin layer, under absolutely everything and in all colours. At the moment it’s so cold, and as I write I actually see snowflakes falling outside my window! I honestly only want to wear my duvet!, but that’s not going to happen so next best I’ll go for the softest, finest, warmest , cosiest Merino wool roll neck jumper from John Smedley. I’m really loving this baby blue colour at the moment and it goes so well with black – actually what doesn’t go well with black?
Maybe a skirt wasn’t the best idea for today’s weather, but I do love a longer midi denim skirt especially for the winter months. This ripped one from Zara came with a cute matching denim belt.
With sock boots and messy hair and voila, there it is, my OOTD!
