I live in Glasgow, what's the point?
When I'm shopping I like to pick up pieces that work in any season. If I spent all my pennies on clothes that were only meant for blazing sunshine days and scorching beaches I would have nothing left when the weather turned. And lets face it, in Scotland these sunny days are few and far between, even in summer. So I buy bits and bobs that I can see working with bare legs and pretty sandals, as well as fleecy tights and sturdy boots.
This little gem came from a spur-of-the-moment trip to Topshop. Isn't it pretty and just so sweet?! I wore it for wandering around beautiful towns in Croatia with just a bikini underneath, but it's also a great piece for Autumn and Winter. I want to wear it layered over thin turtle-neck tops and long-sleeves striped bretons (get ready for a lot of these). It makes me feel French and cute and like I should be cycling along tree-lined streets with a baguette in my basket. It will also be perfect with cosy jumpers on top, creating a cute denim skirt.
The Ultimate Go-To Top
You've probably all got some version of this top hanging in your wardrobe. Topshop often do staples and duplicate them in all the colours you could imagine - this little silky cami is one of the latest and it's a star. The delicate straps are perfect for bronzing shoulders on holidays with messy ponytails and denim shorts. And the white and rust colour will look fabby with jeans and big slouchy knitted cardigans. Already I've found them being my go-to top as they are so easy to wear and, lets be honest there going to be year-round outfit staples.
THE Denim Button Skirt
Ok, so you've more than likely seen this skirt everywhere this summer and believe me it's a keeper. Tuck in baggy t-shirts, add summer sandals and a pair of sunglasses and you're all good for lunch in the sun. Buuuuuut, you guessed it, it's perfect for Autumnal weather too. And again, think turtle-necks in any colour and striped tops. Add on a big knit cardigan, a blanket scarf and some ankle boots - hell, even throw on your favourite fedora - and you've got your favourite look sorted.
