The perfect look for summer

This week I’ve already started to think about Christmas.

It might seem a little early, seeing as most of us are still hoping there is a little bit of summer still hiding behind the clouds, but what can I say, I like to plan ahead!

The best thing about colder weather is the clothing, I like layers and I love snuggly jumpers and thick wooly scarfs. I find dressing for summer really difficult, I hate being cold, so bring a jumper or cardigan everywhere and I very rarely pick a skirt over jeans!

One summer style I do love is a mid length skirt and boat neck top

french style

Admittedly, although I do now live back in the countryside, I don’t spend a lot of time collecting roses in wicker baskets, but this would definitely be the perfect outfit for it. It’s the kind of outfit that makes me wish I were going on a walk in the country, to picnic under a tree.

Now that it’s a little cooler, I’m going to have to find the perfect autumn outfit for berry picking down country lanes… I’m thinking boots with long socks, a patterned woollen dress, a duffel coat and a bulky knitted scarf snuggling around her neck… hmmm, I’m feeling inspired!
