SUMMER STAPLES PART II

SUMMER STAPLES PART II

Continuing on from my Summer Staples post last month, I've identified another two of my favourite, summer staple items. They probably don't come as any surprise but I had to mention them as I feel this outfit will be on heavy rotation for me this summer!

The denim short is of course, a crowd favourite, and everyone probably has about 99 pairs in their wardrobe - which is totally fair (and I completely sympathise)! In true summer staple fashion, I think it important to have a few options in denim shorts: dark wash, light wash, black, high waisted and a little more sophisticated.

Off the shoulder styles continue their dominance this season, and while many of the pieces you can find have more of a boho vibe to them, I'm all about the structured off shoulder options. This off shoulder top is perfect to take from those more "dressy" outfits, to a laid back weekend look paired back with some denim shorts.

The black handbag is another wardrobe staple and not just for summer - it goes with everything and is another great, sophisticated match for a pair of denim shorts. I've had this PS11 for about 3 years now and it is still one of my absolute favourites, but over the last weekend I treated myself to a new baby because I know how much quality black bags are to any wardrobe. I am counting down the days (and stalking my postman) until it's arrival. YAY!
