Wardrobe Essentials for the Last of Summer

Over here in England, we've actually had a decent amount of warm weather this Summer - yes, it does start raining again in the afternoon, but it's still been quite humid most of the time. When it's too hot to function, I find it takes me twice as long to get dressed in the morning because I just have no idea what to wear. I'm a little self conscious about my curves and prefer to be covered up most of the time in dark colours, but of course that goes out of the window at this time of year. But I think after a few months of sunshine, I've finally found a formula that works for me: lightweight layers and versatile pieces. For the last of Summer, I'll be sticking to these key items to help me put together outfits that make me feel stylish but comfortable.

I'd also like to thank Tobi for working with me on this blog post, they sent me some beautiful pieces that I really enjoyed styling.

A floral dress is the quickest way to look like you've put more effort into an outfit than you actually have. I love wearing them in the Summer because they can easily be dressed up for an evening look or worn with trainers during the day. This one from Tobi* is perfect for the warm weather, as it covers my legs and the tops of my arms but still keeps me cool. It's a wrap design which makes it really easy to wear, or throw on top of a bikini at the beach.


The Heeled Sandals

I treated myself to these tan heeled sandals from New Look on my birthday, and I love wearing them. They look great with a maxi dress like this one from Tobi* for a relaxed bohemian vibe, or can easily be styled with blue jeans. The heel is just the right height so they're super comfortable to walk around in.

The Oversized White Tee

I've been loving white tees this Summer - they're so easy to wear and super comfortable. Mine is from Tobi*, and it's very oversized so it's perfect for relaxed days out in town or at the beach. I usually wear mine with jeans and trainers for a more laid back look, but it's very easy to dress up as well with the right jacket. I have a feeling that I'll be wearing this all year round and not just in the warmer months.
