Summer Staples

My last look in collaboration with George at Asda is just a laid back, everyday summer outfit.  It’s very simple but the printed culottes speak for themselves and add some detail to the look.  Culottes have been the ultimate summer staple this season and the good news is they’re hear to stay for AW14 too.  Obviously if you’re not much of a heels-wearer then you could substitute those for some flat sandals but you know me and my heels!  I hope I’ve opened your eyes to the world of George this week as there are some great pieces in their collections and next season looks equally as promising.

Ahead Of Time

I‘ve already begun collecting my new AW14 wardrobe and in a slightly eager attempt to jump ahead to next season, I wore a jumper (Topshop) in 30 degrees.  It wasn’t smart and it wasn’t funny.  The trousers on the other hand (another AW14 purchase from Topshop) are perfect for this weather, the wide leg allows, errrrrrr, air circulation? Mmmm, yes, air cirulation!  They are my favourite culotte-esque length and they could well be a runner for a Fashion Week ensamble (Who knows!).  Now me mustn’t forget these monochrome shoes because they are might fine for a price tag of only £39!  Well done Miss Selfridge, well done!

Pastel Agenda

Well with all this glorious weather we’re having here in London it’d be rude not to rock a pastel shade or two.  One huge trend this season was pastel coloured leather (or ‘pleather’ in this case), and this pale blue biker screamed ‘buy me’ when I spotted it in Miss Selfridge the other day.  I’ve teamed it with these gorgeous nude culottes (Dorothy Perkins) and some black leather accessories.  As you can tell the ‘Boy’ is my new favourite bag, apologies if it just so happens to make a cameo in every single outfit…ever!

The Summer Mix

I‘m very much a blazer, tee, jeans kinda girl and so his is my summer twist on my essential style.  Swapping those jeans for this season’s must-have, culottes.  These culottes (Forever 21) are shorter than most on the high street at the moment and that’s why I like them, they’re different.  They can be worn super high waisted and I just love the mint floral print…especially with a tan 🙂

Print Co-ord

I can’t wait to don this matching crop top and culottes (Primark) in Spain.  I spotted them at the Primark Press Day back in November and I’ve been waiting all this time for them to hit stores.  I created this flat lay just to play around what I might wear with the set but you’ll have to wait until next week to see this in an outfit post.  If you like the look of it, it’s in stores now 🙂

Bold & Bright

Another day, another pair of culottes.  Next season they’re just going to be unavoidable, so embrace them!  These ones from Boohoo are super wide, in a bold hounds tooth print and combine two trends for next season; Culottes and monochrome…job done.  Boohoo have a competition running at the moment called #OwnIt.  Simple upload your Boohoo look to Instagram (tagging it with @boohooofficial) and use the #OwnIt for a chance to win a Boohoo wardrobe.  I’ll be submitting my looks so get Instagramming guys!

I‘ve been talking about culottes a lot recently and I don’t think you can get more unusual than these Lavish Alice wrap culottes.  I think the options to style them are endless so if you all like them I’ll do a post on 5 ways to wear them.  Leave a comment below if you’d like me to do that 🙂
I must say thank you to Peacocks for sending me a package full of lovely goodies.  I featured one of the dresses they sent me in yesterdays post and today I’ve styled the check blouse, short trench and monochrome bag with these fab culottes.  It could make for a SS14 workwear look perhaps?
