It’s been a glorious few weeks of sunshine hasn’t it. Summer is finally in full swing but now that I’ve finally emerged from beneath my swathes of confused weather clothing it’s time to update the old wardrobe with a few summer essentials. Here are a few lovely things you’ll definitely be wanting to add to your wardrobe this summer.
A breton top is one of those essentials that you just need in your wardrobe but this J Crew version is just a little bit more special thanks to it’s ruffled sleeves – just the thing to add a little something extra to a simple ensemble.

Bright, sunny days are a great time to experiment with colourful make up but when it’s hot the last thing you want is lots of layers on your face. The Juicy Shaker lip glosses by Lancome are perfect for summer, giving a pop of colour but in a super lightweight formulation. And they’re so fun to shake!

This really has been the year for off shoulder tops and I’m currently so in love with this two toned number from Asos. The touch of navy keeps it smart enough for work when teamed with chinos and come the weekend it’ll make a great brunch outfit when paired with your favourite shorts.
