Summer luxe list

I’ve been really excited about summer arriving this year, already envisioning lazy days in the sun reading Mills and Boon books (tacky I know, but just like trash TV, it helps your brain to switch off)  and parading about in easy to wear separates, preferably on a tropical resort somewhere.

I feel as though I think this every time the season rolls around (I’m one of those people who suffer from S.A.D, very aptly named, the acronym meaning Seasonal Affected Disorder, I’m more happy in the sunshine due to increased vitamin D levels in the warmer months), but I’m almost 100% sure I’m more excited than normal. 

Let’s put it down to the fact that here, in Aus, we didn’t really get a summer last year. It was more a tropical gloom that settled upon us. This year the weather reports are in and it seems like we’re destined for lots of sun and beach ridden days. 

In celebration of this, I’ve selected luxe fashion pieces, all with a distinct summery edge. Think fun clutches with a side of quirk, bold shorts, white throw on tees with a hint of glamour, and soft leather sandals perfect to take you from hotel room to pool-side sun bed.
Enjoy this selection, keep in mind these are all luxe and selected from my online wish list, better known as Net-a-porter.
