Summer Essentials – Accessories

Cover your head, shade your face and up your chic points with straw hat. A neutral colour that goes with everything in your Summer wardrobe – swap the ribbon to a colour of your choice if you don’t want black.

You know I love a pair of statement sunglasses and these are definitely on my shopping list!

A basket is the ultimate Summer bag. These are heavily reduced too and come in three colour ways, one with pompoms. It’s big and will fit all of your beach essentials. Tip – pack your clothes inside it in your suitcase.

A pair of flat sandals need no effort. Choose a neutral like tan to get maximum cost per wear – tan looks great with Summer whites.


My favourite self tan brand has just added a clear version. It makes self tanning even faster because you can dress almost immediately after applying and there is no colour transfer.

If your legs are less than perfect or your want to add a little colour and a beautiful sheen, I swear by this product. It certainly does do miracles.

Dry Summer hair will thank you for this award winning, cult product. It leaves hair silky soft.

Add bronze, colour and glow to your face with this gorgeous palette. It comes in two colour ways, I have the darker one which is much more subtle than it looks.

My favourite Summer lipstick – in colour Coco for a warm skin tone – has the right amount of sheer colour and dewiness. Choose Roussy if you have a cool skin tone.


Whites and linen – those are my July favourites. This T-shirt is elevated with it’s shell ring which creates a more flattering shape than a plain round neckline.

I could wear cropped linen trousers all Summer with a variety of pretty tops. These are the perfect option with their flat front that flatters the tummy.
