This sudden heatwave has made it quite hard to pick the perfect outfit; we all want comfort, lightweight fabrics, nice tailoring and versatile pieces. Dresses and skirts are a great option to fight these extreme weather conditions and Lexy London  is one of my favourite designers. Her pieces are both unique and flattering with impeccable tailoring and top quality. I love the Tara dress, made from beautiful soft, organic cotton in vibrant reds and pinks, it is a super versatile dress that can be worn day or night. Pair it with the perfect accessories, for a wow effect! My bag of choice is definitely Prettysac , a fun drawstring pouch to keep your essentials with you. Handmade in London, it comes in an array of different limited edition prints for a unique result. Got a vintage scarf you don’t wear anymore? Upcycle it and turn it into a Prettysac! Do you have a soft spot for scarves? Me too! Let me introduce you to Foulara and Vassilisa . These two designers have caught my attention because they both use high quality fabrics with stunning designs. I love Foulara’s zero waste policy and concept and Vassilisa’s luxurious cashmere and designs. Perfect for all seasons, they will give that special touch to your look.
What about jewellery? What are the best picks for summer? Catherine Prevost  and Contessina London of course! Let me show you my favourites! I chose Catherine Prevost’s Positano bracelet, with colourful summer fruit charms, and Contessina London’s Art Deco large lace earrings in rose gold silver. Very chich and feminine. While days are scorching hot, nights my still be a bit cooler, so how do you layer in style? I love Carmen Basilique’s bespoke collection ()! Stylish and sustainable, her knitwear is adorable! I chose this gorgeous lightweight cropped cardigan, as it looks great with any outfit! Made of high-quality linen, it will last forever.
