Navy stripes are never far away in Spring Summer and and this dipped hem shirt with its nod to the nautical brings with it a daydream of warm sunshine and sparkling sea. I love the unusual shape and how it hangs. The longer hemline at the back, coupled with the dropped shoulder and wide sleeves give it an informality and a rather carefree feeling and one that is different that of a classic breton.
It's by Kaleidoscope, (as is the gorgeous navy and white prom dress that I'm wearing in my profile pictures), and you may have seen the #SoakItUp tv advert featuring the highlights of their summer collection, from which I have a few more items ready for my own summer holiday.
My clutch is made from the softest leather and is in a beautiful shade of red. It is large enough to fit the essentials including an iPad mini and the wrist strap makes it a very practical choice.
Mixing stripes and animal print is probably my favourite pattern cocktail and the patent leather leopard print mid-heeled shoes and the diamantes that adorn my wrap bracelet add a subtle touch of shine and sparkle to the ensemble.
