Sweater: Tippi sweater, £69.98, J.Crew

You know our love for J.Crew. Let me tell you about this jumper. It is currently upholding its status as Most Useful Item in my wardrobe (I am wearing a navy Tippi today, with a cute navy quilt from Topshop and the Banana Republic necklace I tweeted not so long ago. It’s in the sale! Go buy!). I share my obsession with both J.Crew and the Tippi with my boss, Jo Elvin, the Editor of GLAMOUR, her PA and one of the fashion eds – so I know I am in good company (these women really know how to dress).

Yesterday, Jo pointed out that Reese Witherspoon (a celebrity we think we’d be friends with, should the situation arise) was wearing a Tippi to show how she’s got back to her “pre-baby figure” (don’t you just love that preoccupation) whilst out and about in LA. And very nice she looks, too.

Anyway, the Tippi. I love it. And would perhaps style this one thus. (I warn you – this is a dream scenario situ. But still, planning ahead is a good thing.)

Shorts, £24.95, Gap

These shorts, for instance, are fab – and won’t be in the shops when you actually want to wear them. I love, love the pattern. Perfect with a simple white tee or chunky navy sweater  (I’ve forced myself out of my navy rut with the pink Tippi…)

Sandals, £69, & Other Stories

So perfectly simple and chic. You will wear these forever. I’ve thrown in a pair of heels for good measure (and because they are too lovely not to show you) should you prefer to elongate your legs when wearing shorts.

Raffia tote, £267.96, Linde Gallery at Farfetch

I really have gone a bit summer-crazy. I think it’s this alleged ‘first day of spring’ thing (bitter laugh). Everyone needs a raffia/basket-like tote for summer holidays. Mine is an over-sized number I picked up from a market in France. This is a beauty.

Bracelet, £120, Monica Vinader

I have a real thing about how classy and Coco Chanel-esque gold bracelets look against a tanned wrist. This delicate with a hint of drama bracelet by Monica Vinader would be perfect. Do check out her website – there is so much to covet.
