It seems like just about everyone is jetting off on their holidays at the moment. My twitter and instagram feeds are plastered with gorgeous beaches and bikini-clad bodies, and I'm here in dreary, cold England. Nice. If, like me, you're feeling a little down that the British Summer Time hasn't really kicked off yet, let my summer picks from Avenue 32 inspire you...
For the ideal summer dress, look no further than the Thakoon Addition Blue Floral dress. The floral print is perfect for summer, along with the stylish skater style. I really love the detailing on this dress. From the blue floral print to the cut-out cross back, it is perfect for beach strolls, and can easily be dressed up with a blazer and wedges for the evening.
I would pair the dress with a giant floppy hat, sunglasses and gladiator sandals - my three summer essentials. I found this perfect Pheasant feather rush hat, which will also look great at festivals due to the feather detailing. These Silver cut out sandals are a must for keeping cool and stylish during the warmer months. I love the metallic detailing, which certainly sets them apart from your standard brown gladiators! Sunglasses are another one of my "musts" - I'd be lost if I lost mine! Avenue 32 have an amazing selection of sunglasses, some of my favourites being the bespoke frames from Cutler and Gross. I have seen cat eye sunglasses all over the SS13 catwalks, but I wasn't too keen. However, these White mondrian cat eye sunglasses are ever-so-slighly cat-eye, making them extremely easy to pull off. I think I've been converted.
During the summer, I keep my jewellery to a bare minimum - it just gets in the way a little! However, I do like to stack up on friendship bracelets for an efforless, urban look. Spikes and studs are huge at the moment, and are featured on the Silver plated chain bracelet. In addition, the Bex rox friendship bracelet in blue provides the perfect complement to my outfit.
