Both outfits can also be dressed up and dressed down, depending on the look that you are aiming for. That's another thing that I LOVE when choosing clothes - pieces that can be worn for a variety of occasions, so you can get as many wears out of them as possible!
Sunglasses: Mango. Earrings: Oliver Bonas and Seol + Gold.
My bag is from The Cambridge Satchel Company and has been my trusty favourite for the past three years. It's so easy to style and looks good all year round. I have my initials embossed onto it too, for that extra personalised touch.
My white flats are from Mango and are made from a really soft and unstructured leather, kind of like ballet shoes. After a few wears they mould to your feet. Being from Essex, I have always stayed away from white shoes, because of the Essex Girl/white stiletto stereotype. BUT these days, I think white shoes can add a really fresh touch to everyday outfits, especially if there is an edge to the design, like this pair.
The straw bag is something that I use most days, at the moment. It's the perfect size for putting all of my essentials in and the light tones on it make it the perfect Summer accessory. It goes with everything!
The Baukjen blouse is one of my favourite items in my wardrobe. It's so pretty with the little ruffles on the shoulders, but the crisp design and bright white fabric make it less frou frou and more clean and fresh looking.
You might not think that skinny jeans are a Summer Staple, as per the title of this blog post, but here in the UK there are the odd chilly days in the Summer. These skinny jeans are nice and stretchy - I have only just started wearing skinny jeans again post baby number two, as I have been favouring loose trousers recently. This whole outfit would look just as lovely with shorts or a denim skirt, for the days where the temperature is a little hotter.
For this shoot, I wore my And Other Stories lace up pumps - they are surprisingly comfy for 9cm heels! I loooovveee the tortoiseshell pattern on the leather. If you fancy a more casual option, this whole outfit also looks great with sneakers or flat sandals!
