I don’t think I can remember another summer that has started so superbly! The recent sunshine has been just glorious (give or take a couple of drizzly days!) and I have been loving giving my wardrobe a little summer makeover! When Boohoo recently reached out to me asking if I would like to style one of their anything-but-basic t-shirts I jumped at the opportunity to add a lightweight, casual yet stylish top to my summertime staples.
Perusing the generous selection of tops available on Boohoo I was spoilt for choice – they have a large collection of on-trend slogan tees, vests and off the shoulder numbers. I decided to choose the heart embroidered stripe tee (if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I just can’t resist a stripe!) as I loved the pop of colour and detail on the neck and sleeves. This is the perfect lightweight everyday tee that can be styled up or down.
For my first looked I paired my stripe tee with a pop of yellow (one of my favourites colours this year!). Being blonde I always felt yellow wasn’t my colour but after I received so many lovely compliments following my purchase of The Yellow Coat of Dreams I’ve had such a love affair with this cheerful shade! I will fully admit to almost living in jeans to pairing these classic skinnies with the tucked in tee and d’orsay flats (similar here and here) this outfit was a classic staple for me.
Next I upped the comfort level and reached for this midi length stretch skirt. A bargain purchase couple of years ago from Primark (similar here) it’s been wore more times than I care to mention! I find being on the shorter side (I’m 5’3″) that a tucked in tee works better for my hourglass shape. This tee is cropped in length but I loved that Boohoo offers many of their clothes in petite sizing aimed to flatter women of my height and under. My bag is from Pretty Little Thing and always gains comments whenever I use it!
Finally for those days where the weather is less certain I teamed my tee with one of my favourites – dungarees! I love the comfort-factor of dungarees and that they add a degree of fun to an outfit! I paired this outfit with some red Ray-Ban wayfarers to match the pop of red on the embroidered heart.
What are your summer staples? Do you love an anything-but-basic tee? I’d love for you to let me know in the comments!
