Cool Blues

As a born and bred Islander my summer style for years has consisted of denim shorts, bikini tops and tee shirts, so moving to a city has been a bit of a switch up for the books and dressing appropriately for the thirty degree heat has been a bit of a challenge. Finding something lightweight, not too beachy and covering enough skin so I don't feel like I'm going to be arrested for indecent exposure has required a spot of shopping (what a shame) and a good rethink.

Delicately striped in pale blue and with the most beautiful back detail this Zara top is my new favourite thing. I am obsessed with the unusual but subtle cut and how it works as well with jeans as it does with a more formal skirt look. I've gone for something in between with a culotte style skirt in navy and my Adidas trainers (bought for working out but didn't make it even halfway to the gym) and although I felt a little Lily Allen circa 2007 I also rather enjoyed the combo. I have a formal party to attend in the summer and I think I'm going to don this look with a heel and some delicate gold jewellery - thoughts appreciated in the comments.
