/ fashion MILEAGE
I've always been a fan of all things tan and my quest to make sure that the tan is as close to my skin tone as possible ( for maximum potential to flatter, particularly with summer sandals ) has involved; painting sandals with olive oil to take them down a shade or two or leaving them out in the sun before wearing for a few days to get that lived in effect. So when I was looking for a timeless summer tote I instantly fell in love with this beauty from Madewell. If you want to buy a bag that goes with anything that you'd throw a tan sandal at, this is your new bff and the best bit is that it just gets better and better with age, I've had mine for 5 years and it's still going strong and looks better than when it first arrived in the post.

/ french STYLE
Oh to be French. The food, the wine, the effortless style. The ability to throw together simple classic pieces and look immaculately pulled together but at the same time like you haven't tried at all. The trick to getting the look is to keep it simple yet interesting, whilst showing off a flattering amount of skin. Here are some high street finds to get you started.

/ the TRANSFORMER
A black bustier is a great investment piece, wear it with trousers to get an "is that a jumpsuit" response. Or layer one over a white shirt and pair with straight-cut mid-rise Levis ( okay that's quite specific - you can wear your favourite most flattering jeans) and some killer heels for a sassy I haven't really tried as I'm technically wearing jeans and a shirt but by adding the bustier it looks like I've made a massive effort, Ta-da.

/ this season's must have ACCESSORY
If you aren't big on investing into trends, then adding an accessory that is in keeping with this season is a great way to upgrade your wardrobe without having to adjust your style.
This shell/pearl trend taking over Instagram is a great nod to summer and can add a relaxed feel to an outfit. I have chosen a mix of high street and high end pieces - some might only last the summer season but the Wald Necklace and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings are both timeless and will be an option to wear all year round.
