Style Diary: Summer Basics

What I wore:

Ivory pom-pom top and Pebble wash denim shorts from Mint Velvet

Im so happy to share this final look from my holidays in France with you all, featuring some beautiful pieces form Mint Velvet. When the weather is as hot as it was (the mid-thirties!) the simplest outfits are always the most fun to wear.  Having been lucky enough to attend some MV press days before, I instantly feel in love with the brands simple elegance, with each piece having its own little chic details.

I wore this cute pom-pom top and pebble wash denim shorts on our first day in France, for a bit of bare-foot garden-prancing, and to soak up some of that glorious sunshine. It was the perfect off-duty summer look, and I will be separating the pieces up to style into new outfits (with a few more layers) for our not-so-scorching Irish summer.

Speaking of sunshine, given that this is my last holiday-related post from my travels, (did you see my festival diary and holiday diary yet?) I am once again itching for my next adventure! I’ve already started planning my next trip, it’s something a bit bigger and further-flung than Europe this time. I am always open to suggestions from you guys, and I would love to know, where is your dream holiday destination, and why?

Let me know in the comments below,

Happy Shopping,

    Absolutely love this look and that fantastic floppy hat just looks so vintage and adorable. Love that polka dot scarf you’ve added too – it so Mediterranean! Long may the beautiful Irish weather last. xoxox
