I honestly can’t believe the unprecedented spell of hot weather we’re having. We must be into about the eighth week of wall-to-wall sunshine. I love it and the uplifting effect it has on everyone around me is clear to see. And isn’t it wonderful to be unencumbered by jackets and additional layers?
Lapis And Turquoise Silk Dress
For much of the hot spell, I’ve been wearing midi- and maxi-dresses on repeat. Therefore this stunning lapis and turquoise silk dress, makes a refreshing change. It’s from a small brand called Poppy Silk and is handspun by artisan weavers in Bengal. As well as being absolutely divine, it’s super cool and easy to wear. It’s the sort of timeless dress that I’ll bring out year after year. Effortless chic at its finest.
Apatite Gemstone Jewellery
I’ve always loved jewellery, This is apatite. It reminds me very much of aquamarine in colour and looks beautiful set in silver. My apatite necklace and bracelet couldn’t be any more perfect with this lapis and turquoise silk dress.
More Toolally Earrings!
This is the third pair of Toolally earrings in almost as many blog posts. the reason is threefold. First, I love them. Second, they are incredibly lightweight and comfortable- perfect for this hot weather and holidays. Third, Toolally is a brand based just a few minutes from me here in Skipton. It’s really quite rare to have such a renowned brand on my doorstep, (they have featured in Vogue), so I’m proud to shout about this gem of a Yorkshire brand.

Click to see me wearing the Raspberry Half Moon Drops and the Arctic Blue Peacocks. I find it’s useful to see “real people” wearing them, as well as seeing them on a model.
Gold Wedges With A Touch Of Shimmer
This dress will look just as stylish with slides or flat sandals as it does with something higher. These gold wedges are from Lotus, one of my go-to shoe brands. (They are currently half-price at £22.50, so do go and look). The fabric upper is slightly glitzy and it sparkles in the sun. As with all Lotus footwear, these light gold wedges are very comfortable and well-made. An invaluable summer wardrobe addition. They fit true to size too, if you’re ordering online.
