A simple layered outfit for a cool summer’s day: floral chinos, ombre knitwear and a crisp white shirt layered underneath.
I actually bought this white shirt many months ago, but as it has 3/4 length sleeves I don’t think I’ve worn it yet (being chilly isn’t something I cope with too well). It’s a great basic and I’ll be pairing it with a full midi skirt and some sort of neck tie next, so watch this space.
I also love the mix of textures and patterns in this outfit. Summer is a great time to pile on the bracelets, get out the florals and rediscover those light summer knits you put away over the winter months. Both my ombre sweater and sequinned hobo bag are years old but I still love them both – with my new flat pointed mules and pretty gold drop ball earrings it feels like a whole new outfit.
Are you enjoying lots of patterns and textures now that summer is here? Let me know what you’re pairing in the comments!
