The Best of My Summer Outfits (My Edit)

My best summer outfits
Here’s my favourite outfits from the summer (June to August) – there may be some you missed. My favourite of the favourites is almost impossible to call – summer is my favourite season for dressing so there were too many I absolutely adored. But the outfit that received the most compliments from strangers (total: 3) was number 5, my Grace Kelly-style yellow dress. Not bad for a dress from a supermarket clothing range…!

What’s your favourite outfit of my summer round up? Let me know in the comments!

    They're all amazing, but I'm totally obsessed with the second to last look!

    Dear Catherine!! As I was scrolling through your Best of Summer looks, I kept saying to myself "that's my favourite…no, that's my favourite…no, THAT'S really my favourite!!" Impossible to choose, as you said!! You've hit it out of the park this season with outfits that range from tomboy, to boho-inspired, to perfectly ladylike; and since I'm one to dress according to my mood, I was (and am!) inspired by each and every ensemble!! XOXO

      Thank you Kif, yes I do have a fair bit of vintage (mostly dresses). Can't beat being the only one wearing a particular dress when it's vintage! 🙂

    I love all the looks, and I think my favorite is the white lacy layers with floral trousers. I am crazy for feminine tops like that. xox

      Aww thanks Patti… and yes I think that outfit IS very "you"! I know you love loose lacey tops, they look so good on you…! x
