I totally love summer in Australia! Month after month of warm sunshine, blue skies, beaches, picnics and endless casual outdoor activities… it’s definitely a kind of paradise for those who love the laid-back lifestyle.
But for me, there usually comes a point where after WEEKS of being laid-back in the stinking hot weather, I look down at what I’m wearing and think – I’m leaving the house dressed like this??
Two words: Summer Slob.
So in collaboration with Shopbop this month, I’ve picked out my laid-back summer favourites to combat my inner summer slob!
I just loooove the relaxed (but still polished) styles from Joie.
I have tried on a few dresses and tops before, and they are just super-soft and delicious to wear.
I can’t decide on a flowy silk dress or a 100% cotton top though.
These artist collaboration Jason Polan x Soludos shoes are soooo cute and affordable.
I like the winking eye ones, but I feel that the donus will be more fun to wear :)
I’m tempted to buy a brown leather tote, mainly so I have a bag big enough to cart my laptop around.
Oh and you know, so I can buy flowers wrapped in brown paper, a baguette and other trendy items haha. I jest.
The question is, should I go for the soft, supple, slouchy leather… or one with a bit more structure and stiffness to it?
Best way to take me from slob to suburban superstar is a pair of handmade luxe earrings.
These stunning danglers from Spanish designer Miguel Ases are a bit expensive yes, but they’d completely transform my white t-shirts and denim shorts!
And lastly, nothing says “Let’s not take life so seriously” like a silly smart phone case!
Here’s to three more months of warm weather down under – whoop!
