I can’t wait for our mini break to Norfolk at the end of the month. It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here and all I want to do right now is relax with my little family. I am looking forward to lie ins (a girl can dream, right?), long walks on the beach, ice-cream and fun –filled days swimming in the sea.
Of course, a holiday asks for a holiday wardrobe and what has little old me spotted on the Avenue 32 website last night? A fabulous selection of summer wear from Current Elliot! Some of the jeans are a little out there and probably not really flattering for my figure, but I really like the classic cuts and the pale blue buddy trousers, which are my absolute favourite. I can imagine fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly wearing them on the French Riviera and pairing them with big sunglasses, a head scarf that’s floating in the wind and a stripy vest top.
It’s the perfect outfit for a day at the sea side: comfortable enough to spend the day in, but also chic enough for lunch in a fancy restaurant or, if we switch back into real world mode – running after a toddler, who doesn’t want to go back into her buggy and some fish and chips on the promenade.
But it doesn’t matter, where you wear this outfit as long as it makes you feel like a million dollars. There’s no reason why you can’t bring the glamour of St Tropez to Blackpool or Brighton after all, is there?
But do let me know what makes the perfect summer outfit for you? Do you like dresses and skirts or do you opt for practicality and go with shorts? I’d love to get some ideas for my own summer wardrobe!
