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.

Integrate

Today I’m integrating one of my favourite George pieces (Biker jacket) with my existing wardrobe.  I think a biker jacket is an absolute must for anyone’s wardrobe and it’s certainly staple for me (as you may have noticed!).  I’ve teamed it with my new Victoria Beckham boyfriend jeans (Thanks Coggles!) and a simple Topshop knit with the occasional accessory.  It’s an easy casual outfit so I added some black suede courts just to give ‘umph’ to the look although for running around the city I’d probably swap those for my Nike Free Runs or Converse.

Oversize

So we’re on Day 2 of my takeover with George at Asda and today I’ve gone for this rather slouchy, boho vibe.  This over-sized floral shirt is perfect for layering over jeans or leggings if you’re that way inclined.  The print is so pretty and perfect for this season and best of all the shirt is chiffon and bat-winged…thus meaning lightweight and airy on the old armpits (oh yes!).  These boyfriend jeans are some of the best that I’ve seen on the high street as they really are a boy fit, none of this high waisted ‘mom’ fit nonsense.  They come as full length jeans but I’ve turned them up so I could pop on  pair of heels and just polish the look slightly.  I don’t go anywhere without keeping a pair of flats with me so these super-comfy jeweled sandals are perfect for a quick change in this summer heat when one feels the need to dash up and down the tube escalators.  Please note, I don’t partake in this kind of activity for fun, I’m just always rushing to get somewhere

George At Asda Takeover

This week I’m doing an Instagram Blogger Takeover with George at Asda so make sure you follow their account (@georgeatasda) to see exclusive pics!  They have some great pieces in right now and it’s all so affordable.  I’m a big lover of the G21 range because there are some amazing prints and styles to choose from.  I love these shorts from the G21 range and they are a great day to night piece.  The guys at George have spoilt me and sent me loads from their current range so stay tuned for the rest of the week to check out my other outfits!

Lace Love

Sorry for the lateness of today’s post but I was out shooting it in Knightsbridge this afternoon, yet again in the blistering London heat…hence the iced Starbucks in hand!  This lace bralet from Topshop had a lot of love on Instagram so I thought I’d use it in a post to show you how I would style it.  I do have a few other outfit ideas in mind with it and hopefully i’ll be able to don those before the summer is out!

Floral Grid

I‘ve always had a thing about stripes and florals.  Every time I wear something floral I instantly find myself search for a striped piece to fit into the ensemble somehow.  I got these floral check dungarees from Missguided last week and have been waiting for a slightly cooler day to wear them.  They are a lightweight fabric but with this heat I need to be wearing the bare minimum amount of fabric.
