Summer Street Style | Current Inspiration

With the recent heatwave that we've experienced in the UK, I've been stumped with what to wear. So naturally I turned to Pinterest to update my Summer Street Style board for some inspiration. I've selected my favourite trends that I want to invest in, that will work for summer in the city and on holiday.

I wear skirts more than trousers, and certainly more than jeans (I know, not living up to my millennial status) this trend would be the perfect way for me to work some denim into my wardrobe. It's super versatile as shown by the girls above, and could easily take me from a (fashion) office to a pub garden to the beach.

The white dress is a summer staple. Whether in linen with sandals and a basket bag on holiday, or a crisp shirt dress with brogues for summer workwear, a white dress looks insane with a tan and so simple to style.

For those who aren't enamoured by skirts or dresses, wide leg trousers are a perfect breezy option for summer. I need a pair in white, or even pastel pink or orange... Can't wait to style them with a shirt, or pull them over a one piece swimsuit when one needs to take an Aperol break from the beach.

What are you going to wearing this holiday?

Lingerie Influences Seen On Instagram

Underwear-as-outerwear is one of my favourite trends at the moment, but is a tricky one to style. So I've recently been turning to Instagram for some inspiration. It has taken a little while to find the best sources, so I thought I'd round up my favourite Instagrammers for some lingerie inspo!

I've been following Lydia's blog for ages and recently she has been styling up some gorgeous pieces from the high street on her Instagram in a plethora of combinations... who knew lingerie could be this versatile?

Emma mixes different textures and patterns to layer her lingerie, giving an interesting look that I neeed to replicate. I'd wear the first look ^ from head to toe.

Pretty much everyone I know follows Lissy. Her OOTDs shot in her aesthetically-pleasing white room (seriously how does someone's home look like that?!) are very on-trend and I love the way she has incorporated the 'underwear-as-outerwear' trend into this.

Although you (almost creepily) never see her face, Talia has got the knack of styling bralets and bodies down. Her preference seems to be for strappy pieces, which are often uniquely styled peeking out of the top of garments.

OOTD // Sunny Days in Winchester

I've never had a sweet tooth. I'd always reach for olives over chocolate. I prefer a dry glass of white wine over a sweet rosé, and a salty margarita always wins out over a sex on the beach. I'm the same with my coffee order. When the summer months come around, I love an iced black americano more than anything else. Cold, bitter, refreshing... Iced lattes are nice to start with, but I find drinking that amount of milk on a hot day a bit much. And don't even get me started on the sugar content of the frappés that the chains love to sell. Anyway, the point of this ramble is if you're not a fan of sweet stuff comme moi then I urge you to try an iced americano this summer - you won't regret it!

Onto the outfit... the pairing of a mesh top with my wide leg trousers is one of my favourite outfits at the moment. I'm really into the whole underwear-as-outerwear thing, and this mesh top is a simple way to tap into the trend. As always I styled it with ankle boots, my leather jacket (such a good investment piece!) and my pink sunnies (an absolute steal). 

Wishing for more sunny days like this soon....
