Last year I had a ball with Joe Browns when we got together for a Christmas themed photoshoot. When they invited me to pick and style a piece from their Holiday Shop for their #JBHolidaywardrobe campaign I knew I’d get to have some fun!
I fell in love with a striped tote bag from Stella and Dot back in Summer 2015 and have coveted it ever since, but at £100 couldn’t quite justify the purchase. It must have been fate because as I looked through all of the colourful pieces in Joe Browns collection what should pop out from the page but this beautiful Breton striped tote? Not only is it much more affordable but it ups the ante by adding in a cute as a button contrasting floral print and bow to the mix.
At the height of Summer I’ll be teaming my new tote with casual pieces like a pair of denim shorts, the white shirt I wore in this post and some loafers. However I’m having something of a love affair with brights at the moment so I decided to see what it would look like with my new lemon yellow summer dress. As it turns out, this combo made me want to go into a field and twirl about… so that’s just what I did!
The dress is in a light chiffon material with a pretty lace panel.
…I might end up wearing this to a friend’s wedding in September, but I can’t wait that long to give it another spin so I’ve informed Neil that he needs to take me and my floaty dress to the seaside for fish and chips and ice cream ASAP.
On the day that I wore this sun was shining in a perfect blue sky… but in the open fens it turned out to be much cooler than expected! I solved the problem by snuggling into my much loved, worn to death, goes with everything bomber jacket.
It’s so handy as it’s a thin material which keeps it nice and light for carrying around stuffing into my bag, but it’s still great at keeping the wind chill at bay. I rather like pairing girly dresses with sporty jackets too.
