And just like that Summer is upon us lovelies! Today I threw my teacher hat away (hopefully permanently – I don’t know how all you real teachers do it!!) and I’m in the holiday mood!!!
With shopping being a little bit more of a challenge due to lockdown, I thought I might help steer you through the minefield that is a summer wardrobe!
First up let’s head to the High Street and a shop that is ticking all the boxes for affordable fashion at the moment and that’s H&M. This is definitely the year of the summer dress – the bigger & baggier, the better it seems! I’m totally in love with this pink bubblegum puff sleeved dress from their Conscious range. So easy to wear (the perfect cover for post lockdown laziness too!!)
Why not pair it with an SJL statement necklace like this one – my Silver Bevelled Hoop is the perfect accompaniment. Made from brushed silver, it comes with an extender so you can choose the length to suit you best. Add some SJL boho festival inspired bracelets and you are good to go!!!
The High Street isn’t the only place you can find fab fashion though lovely people! Lockdown has proven to be super tough for small businesses like mine. If you’re looking to top up your summer wardrobe, I have a few little independent biz’s that I like to head to for unique, stylish pieces.
Here’s yours truly in one of my favourite new finds from the lovely Sophie over at Pink Ostrich. This beauty was an absolute steal at just £10!!! Sophie has a gorgeous selection of purse friendly, on trend pieces. She has new stock arriving every week too – a bit dangerous!!! But it means you can stay on top of the latest looks without breaking the bank! She has two of these left – best be quick though as they won’t be around for long!
Then if I’m looking for something a little bit special, I love everything Lynne has to offer over at The Meek Boutique!!
I adore Lynne’s tees and comfy looking joggers – all a little bit different and in gorgeous bright shades (pictured here looking as lovely as ever!) She caters for all shapes and sizes and really does have something for everyone.
It’s been a busy month here at SJL HQ!! As I had to close my Pop Up Shop temporarily (reopening soon though – more on that in a minute!!) I’ve been having a little bit of a revamp. I’m very excited to have introduced some beautiful new gift ideas to my Collection.
Firstly….I’m absolutely thrilled with my Home Fragrance range. Featuring a stunning selection of scents and beautiful packaging, choose from large luxury candles and reed diffusers to naturally fragrance your home. They make the perfect gift for someone special too. Click here to browse the full range.
You’ll also find these pretty handmade clay decorations have been added to the Gifts Collection. Three different heart garlands and three trinket dishes, all lovingly handmade in Cumbria. I want them all!!!
Out & About
