I’m so glad that summer is here as we are finally enjoying all those little rays of summer sunshine, it really inspires me to wear white with brights. However, one of the
frustrating interesting things about living so far south is sometimes the sun is out and the sky is blue but the wind is coming from the south pole and has a little bite to it.
My way to beat this minor weather complication in my otherwise glorious summer…layers and a big splash of colour!
Touches of Leather: Sometimes, even in the summer months you need to do a bit of layering. Either you just strike a cooler than normal day or you work in an office where the air conditioning is going full blast. I added the orange leather jacket over a white short-sleeved t-shirt to this look to keep the breeze from sending chills up my spine. The leather handbag was purchased a few years back when I was on a business trip in Hobart from the Salamanca Market…which is the place that inspired the Fashion Mister and I to stop in Salamanca Spain during our recent trip. The hot pink patent leather belt is just for fun!
Brights on White: The day was going to warm up and I love the summery feel of wearing brights with crisp white. You may remember the jacket from my what I bought in San Sebastian post and the scarf from what I wore to dine at the Spanish Inquisition. My big white watch and leopard print wedges round the look out nicely and tie all the layers together.
Starting with a Blank Canvas: There is just something about crisp clean white that looks fantastic in the summer! So that is where I started, white t-shirt and white denim. Adding splashes of pink and orange elevates the look to something a little more fun and finishing off with the brown leather handbag and leopard print wedges allows the white and brights to be the star of this look.
How do you feel about wearing white? Do you wear it anytime of the year? Or only ever wear it with black?
