Summer Whites

The thing I find the most intolerable about this country is the weather, hardly surprising. There's no guarantee of sun in summer here and on the rare occasion that is does come out in all its glory you'll probably have to sift through a whole lot of rain until you find in. However, despite the constant downpour, it is of course, warmer. Which means throw away your old and tatty opaque tights and get your legs ready to be seen. I think there is something wonderfully 'cute' about a nice summer dress (with a trench coat and umbrella if you're to maintain any sort of dryness) and a nice, lightly tanned, bare leg. I've got a rather busy, long weekend ahead of me; shopping with friends, family Sunday lunches etc etc and so here is a little peek at what I'll be wearing come the end of the week. And in light of my previous post, I'm keeping all things simple.

Minimalism at Whistles

Each season in fashion new trends will emerge and often, these trends are a basic rule of thumb. For example, we always know that florals and prints in bright colours are going to be a sure fire way of keeping up your fashion credentials during the summer months. So isn't it always interesting to do something a little against the grain?
Now, I'm not suggesting minimalist dressing during August is something none of us have experience before. But, generally speaking, it tends to be something saved for the colder times of year and the main focus at the moment seems to be the brighter and crazier, the better. 
So, I found the vast amount of time I spent going through the Whistles website with a fine tooth comb pleasantly refreshing. There it was, an array of simple tees, shirt dresses and tailored blazers in simple colours of navys, greys and nudes. Not a crazy colour or pattern in sight. And the best part is, it's all so easy and so accessible. Everything can be so easily worn with everything else, it all works together so well that I sat there thinking, 'how on earth am I going to restrain myself from buying it all?' As of yet I've not come up with an answer.

Friends are what makes the world go round

Life, Love, Laughter and Happiness. Where would we be without the joy of our friends?
