Summer is here and time to pick up your baskets and popping out with your favourite! (In my case my fur baby, Chloe!)
Midi dresses are really having a moment, and they are everywhere on the shops and I am a massive fan of them, because they are just so comfortable and flattering(if you get the right length for us short girls). They are just so easy to wear, and even on a breezy day you never have to worry about exposing yourself to the world, if you know what I mean. I love an off shoulder detail, it is so flattering and pretty and girly and this whistles number is just perfect. It is black, which is not that summer but the fabric and the style of this dress is the epitome of summer. It has polka dots and also it has buttons all the way down the dress which is such a lovely detail. It is so comfortable and easy fabric to wear in the summer months, its not too light where you can see your knickers or anything like that!
Summer is also the time for pretty dainty jewellery, my current new favourites are these hoops from Missoma, and this delicate short necklace from the Rosie Fortescue Jewellery, I love this necklace because it is just a short necklace and it is not a chocker! I am obsessed and I have not stopped wearing either of these items since I got them.
Here are some of my favourite earrings from Missoma:

Basket bags are all over the place and I am kind of obsessed – but let’s be honest they are not the most practical bag for the London lifestyle, but they are just so cute! Even Chloe is a fan! I am obsessed with this Nannacy one that I got from Net-A-Porter. If you look at my Instagram I have been wearing it a lot. It fits everything you need and it is comfortable to wear and it is just so cute with the pink pom poms. Of course, let’s state the obvious, when you are wondering around London just be mindful of your bag but otherwise it is the prettiest basket bag out there! It is also such a lovely brand that works together with women from Brazil who needs help, so why not do some good and buy on of their little delights and help someone out.
These are some other bags you can pick up that are gorgeous and at different price points, I have the M&S one and it is great and it has a zip!!!

Slides are the easiest shoe to wear in the summer, these Zara ones are sold out online, so if you do go into store have a good rummage! I have linked some other slides that are similar to these ones. Do I have to mention how comfortable slides are?
