I don’t know what it is but I love wearing shorts. My past family history does come from Spain so that probably has something to do with me being drawn to the heat and not laying. Saying that, my upper body sometimes feels the cold so I thought I would try this hand print vest with this oversized tie-dye cape from Miss Guided. Available in grey and white, it’s a really easy item to throw on and is good for a cool evening stroll or a night at the pub.
I recently featured a New Era Snapback in one of my previous outfit posts but I just wanted to try out the ladies caps that the brand has for 2013. With the traditional baseball cap style that has mesh back, these caps are definitely more comfortable than a boy’s snapback and the peak makes them easier to wear all day and not get in the way of your vision. I also love this colour, which is a great mix and match item for this summer.
I previously wore Chelsea Doll’s Unicorn Necklace in another post but I wanted to try something a little more traditional and summer-fied for this look. As well as Unicorn necklaces, Chelsea Doll have this cool Palm tree necklace which I thought really helped give my look a holiday edge. I may change the chain so it’s longer as I prefer that but this one is well made and great for the British or holiday summer weather.
I think sometimes, a good classic bag is actually really hard to find! We sometimes trouble ourselves with having on-trend bags of the season but I still love a bag that you can fit your life into yet still looks good. Florian have some beautifully crafted leather bags that are unique in style but still work as a day-to-day bag. This Mahiki bucket bag is big enough to get all my daily essentials in and yet still looks classic and timeless. I love the heavy metal-work on the bag and its rounded shape gives it a nice appearance and the leather is simply amazing.
You can always trust Bertie to create comfortable yet daily wearable shoes that are fashionable and have functionity too. These Prosper boots have always been in the back of my mind, whenever I’d pass a Bertie shop in London. With a platform to take out the added height, these are very comfortable yet look cool, chunky and on-trend too. With this dramatic jaggered sole, the shoes will keep you firmly on the ground and they aren’t too thick either so you can wear these babies all year round.
