My Wardrobe: Summer Uniform

Today I’m sharing a couple of photos I took on a recent trip to Mykonos, Greece. It’s possibly the most photogenic place I’ve ever been, so it would have been rude not to take some pictures there (check out my Instagram for more!) I wanted to share them with you as I’m wearing my current go-to summer outfit that I’m absolutely obsessed with. It’s so comfortable and easy to wear, I’ve been rocking a different version of it most days on my holiday this week. The shorts are from 7 For All Mankind - not a brand I normally shop at but Mike loves their jeans and I spotted these in the sale when he was shopping recently and picked them up as I love that they are a little longer in the leg and a little looser fitting than most denim shorts. I don’t have the longest, slimmest legs so short shorts aren’t an option for me really, but I love these and they go with everything. The shirt is from Rails, which is fast becoming one of my favourite brands for causal button up shirts (which I wear a lot anyway) They have the perfect combination or really great quality, good fit and lovely designs. I’ve got a few of their shirts and can see them being staple pieces in my wardrobe for years. A little more expensive that a lot of similar options, but the quality is there so I think they will last a lot longer than the cheaper alternatives.

As for the sandals, these are from Valentino, and my current favourite summer shoe. I actually bought them with a voucher that was kindly given to be my the lovely team a Luisa Via Roma. I would have never invested so much money on sandals before, and have to admit I wouldn’t have bought them outright before I owned them. Now they are in my collection however, I think they are such a brilliant addition to my summer wardrobe. They go with everything, are super comfortable and the turquoise details make you look more tanned than you actually are. I’ve listed some budget versions below for you guys if you like the look of them but not the price tag.

My little red Chloe Drew bag is the most recent addition to my collection (whoops! once again, I blame Luisa Via Roma!) I’ve had my eyes on a red Drew for about a year. I also own a beige Drew in the slightly larger size and use it so much, I knew I would get the wear out of this one. The pop of red adds a little fun to the outfit and the design of this bag is so perfect for on-the-go. It’s lightweight and compact but still fits all of your essentials. I can see it coming a summer staple.

The little bralet I’m wearing under my shirt is one I picked up from Pink recently (so useful for layering!) and the jewellery is a combination of Daisy (long chain) Astley Clarke (Star charm) and Monica Vinader (Riva Ring).

  12. Those Valentino sandals are gorgeous... I feel like no matter how similar the budget pair of sandals are, they won't be anywhere near as nice!

  18. Dr. Wakina stood firm for the truth when he agreed to help me get back my husband via his email: {dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com}.
    He is a lead figure in love spell at first and at last through the help of his maker.
    His love spell protects the love, relationships, marriages many people had lost and guards them to achieve the success and happiness they deserve.
    Doctor makes sure his client’s heart never wavered until the work is concluded, his intelligence toward issues never weakened.
    Many people including doubters can now testify that the excellence of his love spell has become manifest in most successful homes all over the world today.
    My family is blessed by his spiritual work and I think he deserves more than praises for what he has done, I never thought it would be possible until it was done.
    Thank you Dr. Wakina for bringing back my loving husband and for healing many broken hearts. I pray for more strength. <3

  23. I love your style Fleur! I would love one of those Chloe Drew bags, but can't really justify buying one. I've been looking for cheaper versions but can't find any look anywhere near as good! Xx

  26. Shorts, basic tops and sandals are my summer staples too, especially for travelling in hot places like the Greek islands. I think you have lovely legs and should enjoy wearing shorts often, they look great on you :)

  28. I love this look! I honestly can saw, I would totally wear every item in this look. Fishtail braids are also one of my favorite looks for summer. While my hair is a little too short for it now, it has been a summer staple the last few years.
