Before sinking into two seasons of heavy knits, heavy coats, and even heavier rain, I had to spend the last few days of summer embracing its style of Ibiza white blouses and rich denim. But now it’s officially September, and quite frankly, a little too nippy to be wearing off the shoulder tops on a daily basis without giving onlookers way more than they bargained for, it’s time to say sayonara to the old season, and hiya (struggling there) to the new one.
So whilst the Chloe-esque Bardot top is getting shoved into a suitcase to never be seen again (unless anyone fancies a last minute holiday- anyone??) the denim button through can be taken right through to the new season, replacing the wispy white cotton piece with a richly textured roll-neck.
One thing that still has me reminiscing about the four days of exotic paradise I spent on the Costa Del Sol (that sentence is dripping with more sarcasm than my umbrella) is my tan handbag. I picked it up on a market stall in the local square, but for those of you wanting to get a slice of this one-of-a-kind tooled handbag action, the best high street I can find you can be found at Warehouse (via ASOS)!
