I always have mixed feelings when the weather gets warmer. On one hand, I immediately start to stress about how my hair will go from Book-6 Hermione Granger to Book-1 Hermione Granger the second I leave my house, but on the other hand, I get to dip my toe out of my signature (read: safe) neutral colour palette into an entire ocean of bright colours and prints for those 6 months of spring and summer.
GINGHAM + DENIM
I never thought I'd be a 'gingham-girl' but ever since Taylor Swift's folklore came out, I'm leaning more and more into the cottagecore aesthetic and I'm starting with a bright gingham shirt paired with neutral denim.
Mango, Gingham Cotton Shirt, £35.99
Topshop, Straight-Leg Trousers, £40
BASIC TEE + MIDI SKIRT
A basic t-shirt with a statement satin midi skirt used to be my uniform back in the summer of 2018, and I'm hoping to finally have enough reasons to leave my house just to bring this outfit combination back into my life.
& Other Stories, Oversized T-Shirt, £27
Realisation Par, Naomi 'Wild Things' Skirt, £175
VEST + WIDE-LEG TROUSERS
As much as I want to try to wear more and more colour, I know it's going to come to a point where I will fall back onto the neutral monochrome train – I'm just being prepared. Also, how fabulous does Lizzy Hadfield look in those wide-leg trousers?
Mango, Wide Leg Culottes, £29.99
Converse, AllStar 70s High Tops, £74
WHITE SHIRT + MINI SKIRT
Did you think I'd curate a warm-weather edit without at least one white shirt? Absolutely not. I'm so excited to experiment with different denim washes for skirts this season – I want to go for a look that says "classic" on top, but "fun" on the bottom.
& Other Stories, Denim Mini Skirt, £45
& Other Stories, Raw-Edge mini Skirt, £45
My white linen dress is one of my most-treasured closet essentials and I'm hoping to collect more linen dresses this season in different cuts and colours – I'm starting with Pantone's 2017 Colour of the Year, green.
Whistles, Self-Tie Linen Dress, £119
COS, Linen Tailored Dress, £57
