INSPIRATION: Blog

So ok, the sun is not constantly in the sky right now and we can honestly say we are experiencing the less predictable nature of the great British weather but we are determined to enjoy the rest of the summer and all it has to bring. We have so much gorgeous summer choice around the centre right now, it really is worth a visit to see what’s there, as well as to snap up a late summer bargain in some of the sales.

 

We already have some ideas to whet your appetite, so here are our hottest picks right now, complete with a splash of colour to brighten up your wardrobe, your children and even your home.

 

Pretty and feminine is the name of the game. With this floral print tank top from Primark, you can feel super summery and if the weather in not so kind, it looks great under a colourful cardigan too, £8. This elegant, timeless dress from Hobbs is stunning and so classic, it will look good for many summers to come too, £139.

 

This pleated skirt from M&S is great for now, but also will work with a chunky knit and some boots for the autumn, £35. Check out these killer heels from new retailer Dune, £85. Now that’s what we call hot for summer!

 

 

Our male shoppers have plenty to visit for too. These shorts from Joules are perfect to pop in the suitcase for your summer trip, whether it’s abroad or a lovely staycation, £34.95. Marks and Spencer shirts are always a great buy too. Smart yet classic, this blue button down shirt is the one we recommend that works for both smart and casual occasions, £29.50. Our passion at the moment are these Nike trainers from JD. They would be the definite way to treat yourself or that special someone, with what are easily the hottest trainers around right now, £179.99.

 

 

    

In need of keeping the little ones busy? This John Lewis and Partners first scooter, £49 is great and will keep them entertained for hours! Spreading hope and joy through the rainbow theme this year continues, with this fun, fabulous jumper from Primark’s Stacey Soloman range, £7. If your little ones are ready for fun no matter what the weather, then make sure they are ready for anything, with this cute raincoat from Marks and Spencer, £26.

 

Fill your home with sunshine with this lemon design jug from Paperchase, absolutely perfect for serving lemonade, £6. If no sun outside, then bring some in, with this retro sun shaped clock from Next, £65. Why not continue to bring the outside indoors, with this faux hanging basket from Primark that would look fantastic in the bathroom to give a real jungle vibe, £6.

 

 

Nothing screams summer like an ice cream, and McDonald’s are serving Malteser McFlurries right now, pick one up for only 99p. However, if you are more partial to some chocolate, then check out the Summer Desserts selection box from Hotel Chocolat. All the favourites are in there, from Eton Mess to Lemon Meringue, £22.95. Yum!
