Summer style

Summer style

This outfit reminds me of a chic parisian summer day. I imagine that I would wear this walking along the Seine with a crepe or croissant in hand. I love the pop of colour that the little yellow bag adds and the boyfriend jeans are an absolute winner. I don’t own a pair of black stiletto heels at the moment and feel that the are a style staple. The Breton striped shirt is of course what makes this outfit “Parisian” and the cropped versions have been seen absolutely everywhere.

And there you have it. Some Parisian summer style inspiration for you 🙂

hope you like it!

Sophisticated Summer Inspiration

Hey!

Today I wanted to share some classic summer styles to keep you inspired to be as chic as possible this summer. I recently went to a hotel for a weekend stay and saw all these ladies that just looked really classy in their swimwear and big floppy hats. I always feel a bit out of place as I’m not always sure how to style myself by the beach. I usually go for a pair of denim shorts and a tank top, or a patterned playsuit over my bikini. I’m not all that creative when it comes to beach dressing for some reason. I had a straw hat for like two minutes before it disappeared from my sight a few years ago. Therefore, this post is to inspire you the reader but also myself, to take more risks and take notes from some of the world’s classic fashion icons.

I hope this helps! A lot of these are Jackie Kennedy, who is such a fashion icon and who seemed to look flawless when on holiday. And I added Diana and Grace because we all  love a Princess on holiday!
