LAST OF THE SUMMER BUYS ... A NECKLACE, A BRACELET AND A KHAKI SHIRT

Here we are in the second half of June.  Although it's warming up now, it's unsettled and hardly great summer weather.  Meanwhile, the sales have started and soon the next season's collections will be in the shops.  In fact, at the designer end, the Pre-Fall Collections have arrived!

I've been shopping for a few more things to take me through the season.  I went back to the Orelia costume jewellery collection at Topshop (remember the lovely earrings I bought some weeks ago) and found their Foxglove Bracelet (ORE 4050).  Made from base metal and green glass beads, it has a tiny metal teardrop.



Then I saw their Flower Necklace (ORE 4459), a stone flower pendant made with a central green Swarovski stone set in a diamanté surround, on a gold colour plated chain.


Both pieces are from Orelia's Jardin Botanique collection, as were the earrings that I featured in my post, "Summer Pieces" on 14th May. 



I think that the khaki shirt below from H&M is a really good basic, wardrobe staple.



News of An Exciting Collaboration!   Isabel Marant will guest design for H&M on a collection this Autumn.  I have long wondered when this would happen because I thought that her rock/boho/ethnic style would be exactly right for H&M.  I am really looking forward to seeing this collection, due to hit the H&M stores on 14th November and feel sure that it will be one of their most successful designer collaborations.
