Apart from my gym gear, denim distressed shorts and an array of sweatshirts, this look is now a lockdown staple, swapping out my Jigsaw linen t-shirt for other tops and alternating scarfs! The scarf is again from Willow & Eve, from The White Company, Hush boyfriend jeans and Veja pumps. I looked at Mint Velvet online to see what was on offer this summer as it's always good to see the updates from my favourite brands. At the moment I don't have a lot on my wardrobe shopping list but I could be tempted by my top four picks below.
Firstly a print slip skirt, an easy on, flattering style which, because of the print, looks less lingerie inspired than the on trend slip skirts from last season. With an elasticated waistband it's also practical if you've put on extra pounds or toned up during lockdown!
Next we have the type of dress that I always go for, a shirt dress. This is available in a dark khaki shade and the cupro/viscose mix gives it a silky feel and weight with utility styling details. The midi length is great for coverage and if you want to flash a leg then the button front gives you that flexibility.
I've picked this denim jacket as it's an update on a style which I know a lot of you own. The puff sleeve has been revived for summer and is currently on trend, although if I'm honest it's a style I won't be buying into, It looks great here and the proportions are also well considered. I currently don't own a denim jacket but if I did I'd wear this with a breton stripe dress and Veja pumps.
Whilst we may not be booking a summer holiday abroad this year hopefully we'll be getting some sunnier weather soon. If you've got outdoor space and able to sunbathe you may want a cover up for when the gardener/ window cleaner turns up which is why I've chosen this floral print kimono. It's definitley a purchase that will keep until your next vacation too.
For now keep safe, stay socially distanced, look forward to a new normal and as always thanks for stopping by.
