A couple of weeks ago I saw this little basket bag in Zara and instantly fell in love. It reminds me of something my mum would carry to the beach when we were younger. Before I bought it I didn’t realise just how much of an Instagram trend it was and ever since I have seen it everywhere! I’ve mentioned on my blog a few times that summer dressing isn’t my strong point so I’m super happy to have found this outfit.
I love how versatile this little bag is when it comes to styling. I like to have 1 or 2 items that literally go perfectly with everything without needing much thought. The pom pom detailing on this bag is what sold me. It’s so adorable and makes the design perfect for the new season. Basket bags are everywhere right now too and I’m obsessed! Inside it has a drawstring lining which is perfect for keeping everything secure. It’s definitely a new love of mine and my must have summer bag.
One of my favourite items in my wardrobe right now is this pair of blush pink trousers. They make a lovely change from wearing jeans for days you still want to keep covered up. The colour of them is beautiful too! The light weight material is perfect for the warmer weather but enough to keep you sheltered from a breeze! I know I’m going to live in them over the next month or two. Plus, who can resist the little flared hems?!
Even though it’s June next week it’s still not warm enough to go without a light summer knit. (For me anyway!) I picked up this one in the new year and it works so well with this outfit. I feel ready for spring and it still keeps me cosy! It’s perfect for layering too which is key for the english weather.
What would be your must have summer bag?
