My 10 Summer Staples

Untitled #8
1.Topshop floral shoes
A classy alternative to flip flops, two strap heeled sandals are a big trend this S/S14 along with jelly shoes (I own a pair and they are still causing blisters). I love these beauties from Topshop and they are only £32, bargain!

2.River Island mini tote bag
When travelling I hate carrying big heavy bags, so a mini tote or satchel bag is perfect for keeping little essentials safe. Also these adorable pastel colours are too hard to ignore! £30 at River Island.

Camisole’s are so simple but can start off any outfit, making them a must for summer! Stick to Monochrome colours as these can be paired with absolutely anything. Team it with any of these staples for an effortless but chic look. You get this particular cami from Boohoo for £8.
If you don’t want to wear shorts but want to rebel and show some skin, ripped skinnies are for you. They add attitude to an otherwise simple outfit but still manage to look effortlessly chic and casual. You can find them at Topshop for £40.
5.Topshop white scallop jacket
I was really drawn to this beautiful scalloped jacket from Topshop. To keep it simple and as a staple I stuck with a classic white (my own rebel from black jackets), this allows the jacket to be paired with many different colours and textures. Tip – If you are pale (or are not blessed with luscious tan skin) pair this jacket with jewellery or the white will swallow you whole! £55 for insta-class.
For days when it’s a bit too chilly to wear a cami but too hot to wear a jacket, we have the thin sweater. Comfy and casual approved it looks perfect paired with ripped jeans, disco pants, shorts or even a skirt. £15.99 from Zara.
A classic here! The denim jacket has been a summer staple for years and for a good reason. Looks best paired with a dress or just anything that doesn’t already include denim (i’ve never been able to understand the double denim trend).A classic denim jacket at £40, yum!
Simple and Classic; the black skirt add’s class to any outfit. It also slims down those bum’s and tum’s we don’t always want people to see. Paired best with a white jumper, cami or coloured top you can get this lush skirt from Reiss at £125.
The white dress can be paired with pretty much anything, it’s innocent, it’s light, it’s dainty and most of all adorable! One of my favourite trends of the moment because you can do so much with it. This beautiful skater dress is $34.99 (or £20.60 sterling)

10.Zara floral print skirt
I love but also loathe this trend. Midi skirts are back! The one I picked out is a favourite from Zara for £29.99 in the sale (it also has a matching peplum top), unfortunately due to my hobbit height I cannot wear these wonders *sobs* but theres no denying, Midi skirts are in and trending.
