“It’s been a very long time since I’ve felt the warmth on the back of my neck sat outside in the garden, let alone dress for the sunshine.

However, if you’re from the UK then you’ll know that we’ve been blessed with some glorious spells of sunshine recently and I want to share with you two staple pieces that are essential for my Spring / Summer wardrobe.

This Floral Longline Kimono from 6 Foot Fashion is a beautiful piece that dresses up any outfit. It’s so lightweight and can be styled many ways. Here, you can see I’ve paired it with some skinny jeans, and a red bodysuit to pick out the colour in the flowers.

This is definitely going to be something I wear a hell of a lot throughout the warmer months because it’s perfect to wear in the day and in the evenings when it gets a little cooler and you want something to throw on over stappy tops – oh and you might even see me wearing this in Cyprus later this year.

And the other staple piece this season is this beautiful Leather Cross Body Bag. You really notice the quality as soon as you unpack the bag – the smell of leather and the sturdy yet soft material. The size is just perfect – not too big and bulky for those summer days out, yet not too small. The thing I really love about this bag is the detailing on the chain and the fact you can alter the length accordingly.

This bag is definitely a day and evening bag – especially with the different zip up compartments. You can get this bag in a range of colours and is a definite must have!”
