The last few weeks have been slightly different for me as I’ve been rather ill. It all started when I flew to Dubai with work & fell ill on the flight resulting in me having to stay in Dubai, go to the hospital & recover as quickly as I could so I was allowed to fly home. Finally I was home, oh boy there is no better feeling & I thought a few days off work & on tablets I’d be back to normal, oh no not the case being ill really took its toll on me & really made me slow down & look after myself. An the perfect medicine for that is some good old fashion Vitamin D so I decided to take advantage of the weather were having at home at the moment & catch myself some rays.
So making the most of the British weather, I decided to help make myself feel a bit more ‘me’ I headed out in some of my new Summer pieces. Spending the day with the best companion, my mum. I’ve been taking it slowly so we headed out for a bite to eat sitting outside in the sunshine.
Heading out in the warmer weather I would usually opt for a dress, but knowing the British weather can turn at any moment so I decided to layer up with one of my new Summer jumpsuits. Originally I had this culotte jumpsuit in mind for my Summer holidays, perfect to team with sandals & a beach bag but I always try to make the most of my Summer clothes not just saving them for going away or on holiday, this is why I love layering.
This linen jumpsuit is light & I love the shape of it, with the buttons down the front & the belt tie that help accentuate your waist. Heading out for lunch & knowing I wanted to cover up a bit more so I teamed it with this pink & white stripe top, I also love that both the top & the jumpsuit have subtle stripes, sometimes it can clash but it’s so subtle I think it breaks up the colours. Layering an outfit I find gives you so many more options & get the most out of your clothes, throwing a denim jacket with it in the evening you can achieve multiple looks.
As we were out for lunch I didn’t want to be overly casual so I added a kitten heel sling back, adding a heel always dresses up an outfit & this perfect mini shopper bag is my new fav, isn’t it fab, I’ve been teaming it with as many outfits as possible, I do love my handbags. AA x
