I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

It's Midsummer Day and time for a few new summer pieces from H&M.....

a dreamy sheer black cropped top with wide lace sleeves.........

worn with a pendant on a long fine silver chain or a long multi-chain necklace made from three different style chains in a dark silvery metal as below...

and a pair of black lace ballerinas.

I will wear these pieces with dark denim jeans (or denim shorts perhaps).  One of the season's large floppy black straw hats would be good with this look.

Basic t-shirts are always an essential and my new one is the right shape for this summer - cropped, wide, short wide sleeves with turn-ups.

After my Mid-summer night dreams, it will be time to wake up and look at the new Pre-Fall collections and the summer sales.

Next weekend it will be the Summer Solstice and I was thinking about buying a new pink lipgloss for a summery look. 

Chanel describes their new summer makeup "Reflets D'Été de Chanel", as a "candy-bright" collection.  It's a mix or match of pinks, coral, orange and violet with a glint of copper or bronze.  The idea is to co-ordinate or clash these shades.  Lisa Eldridge demonstrates one beautiful way to use colours from this collection on 

Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer lipgloss comes in 5 sweet, pretty colours:

Hello (184)   Glaze (03)   Sexy (185)
Happy (186)   Sunny (188)

This lipgloss has a smooth, gel texture and these new shades add just a light gloss of colour to the lips.   I chose Sexy (185), a fuchsia pink.

For matching, co-ordinating or clashing nails, Le Vernis Nail Colour comes in five new shades.  I must also mention the two new shades of Inimitable Waterproof Mascara - Violet Touch (67) and Orange Touch (77).
