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

Right now, athleisure pieces have become my daily "uniform" but with summer on the horizon, the thought of dressing up in something pretty for a change is appealing. This season, pretty means lace boho style dresses, white tops trimmed with lace or frills or made in broderie anglaise fabric, lace-trimmed camisoles, slip dresses, black velvet chokers, pink lips and nails..........

My little moodboard below reveals a few of my summer favourites:

Whats on the moodboard:

White broderie anglaise sleeveless top with a scalloped hem from H&M and a black silk and lace camisole from The Kooples.  Both these pieces could be worn with denim jeans or more formally under a tailored black jacket.  

Little finishing touches - Black velvet choker from Urban Outfitters, Grey velvet slippers and round sunglasses from H&M, Chanel's Rouge Coco Shine fuchsia lipstick (Mighty 116), NATorigin's candy pink Natural Nail Polish (Lobelia 1405).

Style Note: Hair worn in a messed-up bun or loose and natural, French Girl style. See the Twitter link below for tips from French Vogue on how to do French Girl Hair.

Recently, Lou Doillon appeared on "Later...with Jools Holland". In a black lace-trimmed camisole under a red jacket, teamed with skinny blue jeans, silver buckled belt, ankle boots and a big black hat, she was the epitome of Parisian chic and yes, she wore pretty lipstick and had loose, natural, French Girl Hair.
