I love everything about summer; the food, the warmth, the eating alfresco, but most of all, I love the fashion. The way clothes take on an almost innocent and coquettish feel, with dainty prints and lace at the forefront, it has a completely different vibe to autumn and winter, where it’s more about keeping wrapped up and staying warm.
In summer you can truly express yourself as the elements play little part in how you dress. At last you can really show off your personality and let your character shine. So if you have been waiting for the cute girl in you to shine, have a look at these pretty pieces, guaranteed to make you feel like sugar and spice!
South Floral Printed Skinny Jeans – was £29.99 now £23
These floral printed jeans are ideal for the girl who loves a vintage feel but doesn’t want to go all out girlie. The skinny style feature a gorgeous stunning print that is subtle enough to dress up or down, and include front and back pockets as well as a zip front fastening.
Make these jeans the stand-out feature by teaming them with a neutral top that picks out one colour in the jeans, with accessories to match. We recommend wedge sandals in summer whites for the day, or go metallic for the evening. Sizes 8 to 22. From Very.co.uk.
White Floral Skinny Jeans – £24.99
More skinny jeans here but with a faded, bleached look that is perfect for lazy summer days. The blurred details lend themselves to oversized blouses, made from cool cotton, or tops with lace inserts to add an extra feminine touch.
Features a classic zip fly and button fastening and a 5 pocket design. Go all out girlie with mini clutch bags and high heels. Sizes 6 to 14. From New Look.
Crochet Front Vest – £25.00
This rose pink chiffon vest with crochet detail front will instantly add a touch of glamour to any outfit, but because there is so much detail in the vest, don’t overdo it by wearing it with similar bottoms.

Autograph Pure Cotton Sleeveless Embroidered Dress – £89
This is my favourite of all the clothes featured today. The beautiful cut out floral embroidered design is completely on trend and the colour is simply perfect for this time of year.

Sizes 6 to 22. From Marks & Spencer.
