Easy weekend dressing for coffee catch ups and window browsing. Wore this simple jeans and sandals combo for a laid back saturday. Love the colour combo with gold,red and cream. Added a beige sunglass instead of my usual heavy black rims. Hope you had a great weekend. We’ve hit August already.. can’t believe how quick this year has gone. And it seems as thou the sun is going to continue to allude us. Thankful for the odd summers day here and there. But in reality I’ve worn none of my summer clothes. It’s particularly boring for the kids summer hols. It’s such a shame that the weathers no good as the coast is only a short drive away. No such luck to have lazy summer days at the beach.
Soft nudes and neutral shades are perfect for summer. Add with any color and bingo. Love these high waisted shorts, had them from last year but not been able to wear them (due to weather conditions) until now. Tucked a little off the shoulder number in and a way to go. The sun is out today so I can’t spend too long typing here. I’ve got the day to catch. So have a great weekend. Catch me over on instgram for lots more outfit pics. Lots of love Dawn
Well it’s been a pretty poor summer here in the UK. Proof came when I had to wear these knee high boots and long coat. Not only wet but cold too. I was supposed to be away in France, so I was feeling even worse about the weather. I had to cancel a planned trip with family and friends as I was ill throughout the week. Not the best situation and one that leaves you feeling a little bit miserable. Not helped by the fact we’ve had very little summer. I think I’ve worn shorts twice at a push. So to conquer the crappy weather I pulled out a few autumn/ winter pieces from last year. I’m not ready to buy new season AW just yet.And there’s no need when there are things well kept from seasons before. Especially good when they are still on trend. Knee high boots are a winter must and the cute mini skirt dress is also a good investment for AW. Oh the thought of heading straight into winter leaves me in a deeper state of misery. Ha ha. Have a great sunday xx Dawn
I was wearing all last season but certain pieces are still available. I’ve linked them below where I could.
Summer beauty just got sorted. This fab bag of treats is available exclusively at Selfridges this thursday. Packed with goodies and summer essentials to help maintain and enhance. Perfect timing if your off on your hols or even if your back. Keeping up on summer skin care can be a big job, but if you get the right products you can keep skin soft and looking gorgeous ! I love using a fake tan, so this James read face tanner with an SPF is perfect for me. I try not to tan my face and usually wear a very high factor when on my holidays. Baring skin on the beach can be daunting for the first time in months. Coming out of winter where we’ve been under wraps and skin hasn’t seen the light of day can leave it looking dry and pale. I never like my skin the first few weeks of summer dressing. It takes time for the sun to do it’s job and for skin to look healthy and human again. I use a daily moisturiser on my legs and arms throughout the summer. There’s a great one in this pack by Clarins which I’m really looking forward to using. Also a moisturising grape water spray to use when travelling. A spray to help set your make up. Which I’ve never used but I’m hoping will do the job in the heat. I find it hard to keep my make up looking good on hot days. I’ve often given up on it and I go completely natural at the beach or pool. So it’s going to be fun trying these new pieces out for the first time. There’s lots in the bag so I’ve listed them below for reference.
Its valued at £176 but retailing for £40 so grab it whilst its available. It launches tomorrow and will be available to purchase online here.
Have a great summer pamper xx Dawn
