I just got back from London Town with a suitcase full of goodies and I’m planning to share them with you for throughout the summer months for some style inspiration!
While shopping, I couldn’t wait to wear my new clothes and so, as one naturally does when they don’t want to wait, I wore them. Last Saturday it was a bit chilly so this outfit doesn’t really say ‘Mediterranean summer’, but could definitely serve as some inspiration for the coming months full of blistering heat.
This Spring/Summer season, I’m obsessed with poplin style shirts that have a twist, and even more, if they are pin stripped. So on my first day of my trip, I saw this shirt on the mannequin and had to have it. Unfortunately, they didn’t have my size – but I seized to give up. So I went to two more H&M shops until I found my size. And I did! I love that it has a wrap around detail to it and comes in a three-quarter length. Here I paired it with my trusty denim jeans, but in Malta, I would wear it with a pair of shorts in either a crisp white or navy blue. I would avoid to pair it with washed out denim as I feel that it would be a bit busy against the pinstripe detail it has.
Since the outfit was a bit bland with just being essentially blue and white, I wanted to add a bold pop of colour to the outfit and to also scream, ‘I know this is London, and it’s cloudy. But it’s summer, so I’m bringing a dose of sunshine!’. I found this orange crossbody on sale at Accessorize (which coincidentally matched my nails) and I knew it would be the perfect piece to add to any outfit that needs a dose of colour and fun.
