All-out August

We’re in the middle of September. What is happening with 2015. In the blink of an eye, I’ve had to store away all remnants of tropical playsuits, and whack out the mountain of trusty tights.

But before we slip into the knitwear, I squeezed the very last bit of the summer sunshine out of my wardrobe - oh, and hopped over to Milan to soak up some of the Italian sun too.

With British summers being what they are, the weather it always somewhat unreliable to do what it says on the tin and actually be summer. So you’ve got to be prepared with some brightly coloured suede jackets to keep the breeze at bay. And if that’s not enough, with a sassy and striped tee that says Bugger Off, the weather should get the message and buck up it’s idea.
And when that happens, time to make the most of it with the most tropical and most plunging thing you own in your wardrobe surely? 
When else are you going to be able to wear such a sunny number?

Oh, in Milan I guess - where deep plunges are always welcome. Especially when they’re in the form of a striped jumpsuit that makes you feel all John Travolta a la Saturday Night Fever.
But when it’s 35 degree heat, you just feel like wearing as little extra clothe on you as possible, and sometimes that just means a mini dress with a barely-there strappy back. Beware though. If you team it with a high pony, tortoise-shell platforms and glittery and glorious Miu Miu shades, your mate might tell you that you look like a Bratz Doll.
And then tell you that you look like Candyfloss Sandy from Grease when you walk home from the opera with a oversized glittery bow in your ponytail, and swish around in your floral pink skirt. 
But really, when it’s that hot, nothing can beat splashing in the water in your pastel-drenched bikini. 
Which just happens to match the rest of your stuff that you packed for your holiday - lucky that ain’t it?
What is missing form that pastel-themed dream though, are some oriental inspired patterns in culottes form. They will 100% do the trick in keeping you looking somewhat put-together as you laugh you way through summer.
But hey - who needs to looks stylish and sensible when there’s also pom-pom shoes, initialled bags and dungarees on offer? What a combo.
Inevitably though, the temperature will start to drop. And when that happens, it’s time to dust off the over-the-knee boots. And may i suggest a suede playsuit to go with them? They go brillliantly along with some metal accessories as well, in particular a handbag and big ol’ golden heart belt.
And if that's not enough, an amethyst tiara will make everything right again.
And when you’ve got all that, you might just get someone asking you why you look so cute? 

Stay happy!
Until next time...
