Goodbye Summer Brights and Hello September

My favourite colours for summer were neon. The only time when you can get away with such a bright colour is when you have a tan and thanks to the most gorgeous weather here in the UK, as well as quite a few trips abroad, I managed to make a fairly good use of my neon buys.

I bought this bright pink Victoria Secret's top at the beginning of the season and it has been my favourite. It's perfect for the beach, but you can also get away with it in the city when it's scorching hot. Here, I teamed it up with Ted Baker trousers (white and toddlers don't go, but oh well...). As it is a very open top, it does require a pretty bra - I am wearing Agent Provocateur. 


My other favourite buy was this knitted Zara top. Perfect for warm summer evenings teamed up with either jeans or shorts.
I've also started thinking about doing some shopping for autumn, even though it still doesn't feel like summer is over. I've been recommended, which is basically a fashion search engine, so if you are looking for a dress in a certain colour for an upcoming event, you pop it in and then they tell you everywhere online that are currently selling these and then you can arrange this by price. They have just launched a new widget where you can create your own gallery based on a certain look/style. It's a great site for searching or putting different looks together and I will be posting some of my creations.
The below selection is for all the mothers that will be starting their school/nursery runs this week.
Skinny Jeans - I think they are one of the best inventions. Don't think I own any other style... I love the colour of these Warehouse jeans and the price is great too!
Aquascutum scarf - gorgeous and on sale! I own quite a few pieces from this brand - I am just in love with their check stripes.
Simple but stylish Tommy Hilfiger tote. Perfect for carrying all the snacks, wipes, iPad and random toys. It is black which is a practical colour when you have little ones.
Ash ankle boots - they are most definitely on my list. They look good and I am very sure that they are comfortable as well! Just the right height for driving or walking up the hill.
Simple T-shirt. I think this one (only 5 pounds!!) goes nicely with a scarf. There is no better combination than a simple but nicely fitted T-shirt and a pair of good jeans.
Finally, if it does get a little cool, this quilted gilet is perfect. I own quite a few gilets, they are so practical and they do look good.


  1. You look stunning as always and I love your suggestions for autumn! Might even try to create a few looks myself, look interesting:)

  2. Fab! Do they sty still have that top in VS?!! Would love to buy it for my holiday in Ibiza. September selection is great, although I am so not ready for cold weather!
