Whilst the blazing heat in England this summer has been a welcome treat, the weather gods have finally dialled things down a notch and we all finally stand a chance at being able to dress properly instead of throw on beach-worthy pieces and hoping for the best. I can’t be the only person that’s slipped a bikini on underneath their outfit for just a touch more comfort, can I?! My summer wardrobe of late has consisted of linen dresses and shorts, little cami tops and floaty midi dresses, but I finally dared to browse my favourite online destinations last night, and here are my top finds…

Knot striped dress by MangoTwist front crop shirt by TopshopDaisy stripe wrap skirt by WarehouseCrème de la crème printed T-shirt by Le MotDay Off T-shirt by être cécileThe Teale dress in Purple Haze by Realisation ParMini dress in mixed print by ASOS DesignGradient trainers from adidas by Stella McCartneyBlack Falabella Box shoulder bag by Stella McCartneySatin knot strap espadrille sliders by New Look

Top of my list is this charming midi dress by Mango – the knotted front would be so flattering, particularly on girls like me with a smaller bust, and the asymmetric hem keeps it fresh. Hand in hand with the knotted trend, I’ve also been eyeing up this cropped shirt by Topshop. I love shirts and blouses and think they look lovely paired with denim for a relaxed look or with culottes for a smarter take.

One of the biggest trends at the moment is that of the clashing print. And while this Realisation Par Teale dress doesn’t boast clashing prints, I think it’d be adorable paired with sheer polka dot socks and a pair of sandals. This wrap skirt from Warehouse would also be a great way to tap into the look! I love the daisy pattern and the striped insert, and would pair it with a slogan tee and a pair of trainers. Comfort beats all. Speaking of slogan tees, my beloved Brandy Melville tops have finally met their match and are holey, yellowing and just a little bit gross. What those purchases did teach me, however, is that I bloody love a slogan! So I’m looking at investing into these fun options from Le Mot and être cécile (who’ll always have my heart for their personality-infused designs).

Finally, I’m craving a slice of something new in my accessory kit: the Falabella Box bag has piqued my attention time and time again and I definitely think that’ll be my next big investment… house aside that is! And how cute are these satin knot sliders from New Look? I think they’d make a great pairing with ankle grazer jeans and little camis, or midi slip dresses, for those all-important late summer gatherings in the garden.

What’s on your style wishlist for the remainder of the season?
