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

It's the Summer Solstice today and officially the first day of summer.  Put it down to the warm weather here and perhaps that famous white Givenchy Wedding Dress, but I felt the need to buy something white to greet the season with.

This really pretty white Off-The-Shoulder Blouse, from H&M's Divided range, appealed to me immediately.  Made in a woven fabric with a lace panel down the front, it has short sleeves and a tasselled drawstring.

LINGERIE TIP:  For those of us who need some firm support under off-the-shoulder tops, H&M do some good strapless balconette style bras.  I bought a powder pink lace strapless bra (it came in a "2 pack" with a handy black one!). Under fine white materials, to avoid white patches showing through, I would recommend a skin-toned bra rather than a white one.

Another essential for me was a new pair of sandals.  OFFICE is one of my favourite places for finding shoes that are both stylish and comfortable.  These soft, gold leather, T-Bar, Footbed sandals are called "Sorbet".

No doubt, the gold shoes and boots featured in Karl Lagerfeld's CHANEL Autumn/Winter 2018/19 Collection inspired me to think about gold shoes.  I know that sandals aren't exactly an Autumnal style but I'm sure that I will wear them throughout the summer and on into those first warmer days of early Autumn.

Now, the sun is out and hot weather is forecast for the foreseeable future.
