Hurrah! The sun is shining and we’re in for a beautiful bank holiday weekend. Now is definitely the time to thinking about sunshine buys: those gorgeous throw-on pieces that bare legs and warmer weather are made for. Happy shopping!
Let’s start with this blue and white striped sundress from Whistles (also available in black). I mean, isn’t it a beaut? I really want it. I also rather like this white dress and this patterned dress, also both from Whistles. I’m thinking the model is probably a giant, so hopefully they dresses will be a little longer than in the pictures…I’d wear the blue dress with these amazing earrings from Alice’s Wonders (sold out, but back in stock next week).
Natasha has (and looks fabulous in) this gorgeous yellow midi dress from M&S (above) – such a happy colour. I also rather like this pretty dress from Hush. A chic simple design, it’s just made for those mornings when you don’t want to think! And this dress from Stories has my name all over it. The midi length and loose arms are beautiful, whilst this maxi-dress is idea for holidays and really hot days.
I also have my eye on this floral floaty dress from Topshop (above). It would look really cool with white trainers or simple sandals. If you’re plumping for the sexy D&G Italian mama look this black broderie dress also from Topshop is a must-order (and very Natasha). I really like the sleeves.
Also, a quick shout out for this dress (below). I spied it on @linds_doherty on Instagram and she looked fab – much better in fact, than on the Topshop website. Definitely worth a buy and try.
A straw bag is the accessory for summer. It was all the heart-eyed emojis when I spied this round pom-pommed one (pictured below) on Isabelle Fox’s Instagram feed. Heaven.
We love this La Redoute bag (below) so much we’ve popped it into our Holiday Shop. Isn’t it stunning?
Jumpsuits are also a brilliant summer buy. This one from Whistles is sold out on their website, but (yes!) is still available in all sizes with House of Fraser. I wish I’d bought it in time for Natasha’s party tonight.
I’d be tempted to wear it with a necklace from Tribe & Fable, a new-to-me company specialising in beautiful tassel necklaces. This (below) is just one of their many colours and designs….
Finally, I have to tell you about one of my new scarves. Black with oversized pom poms it’s one of my favourites and looks amazing with a black dress/denim jacket/white top! Also available in white. Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to know more!
