SUMMER STYLE WITH BARBOUR
I have a question for you. Nope, this time it’s not “what’s the best hair tong for Khloe Kardashian curls?”, or “Does anyone know of any gluten free doughnuts in London?” Today I am transferring my own curiosity onto to you. I want to know the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the brand, Barbour?
Now, I’m not a betting woman – which is a bloody good thing as my addiction to shopping and eating is proof that I have an addictive personality! – but if I was, I’d put my house on the fact that quilted jackets, wax jackets, wellies or generally just the farmer/countryside vibe comes to mind? Yes, I’m right you say, oh brilliant… 😉 I get that, I totally get that because that’s exactly what comes to mind when I think of Barbour myself, which is why I was extremely excited – I may have done a Tom Cruise on Oprah’s couch kinda motion, because I’m cool – when Barbour contacted me and asked me to collaborate with them to showcase some of their summer range.
Barbour is a brand that I have always loved so the answer to that question was always going to be a yes, and then I saw their summer range
and totally lost my shit and yes, I had a lot of fun choosing my pieces to style so I really hope you enjoy the post.
And if you don’t, maybe just totally humour me and pretend you did anyway? Please and thank you!!
I am absolutely in love
with this gorgeous dress from Barbour
, it is made from the most stunning lightweight linen and has quickly become one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. I’ve gone for a more casual look here paired with sliders/sandals but it looks equally lovely dressed up with a pair of heels and a clutch bag. There is no doubt that I’ll be wearing this all
summer long, and then obviously tweeting/instagramming it like a crazy lady because #BloggerProblems 😉
Sandals which I am beyond obsessed with and will be doing a whole post on soon: Jones Bootmakers*
This T-shirt was an unusual pick for me and is definitely unique to my wardrobe – which I can’t
say for a lot of items because I am a total
creature of habit – but I really, really like it. I love that it gives a little twist to this casual look and just makes it more interesting
, rather than the standard plain casual tee and jeans combo. The material, like every item from Barbour that I own – is so
soft and well made and is just a joy to wear. I paired it with my well loved – but ridiculously unflattering – white ASOS jeans
and an old school 90’s jean jacket (which is literally retro as I’ve had to since I was around 10) and I was really chuffed with the outcome.
Tartan T-shrit: Barbour*
Wedge peep-toes: River Island
Ridiclously old Jean Jacket that I’ve had at least 12 years: Topshop
So that brings me to the end of this post. Not only was I chuffed with my pieces – thank you so much Barbour – and the overall looks in general, but I’m so excited to have discovered a new store for amazing but classic Summer buys. I am so impressed with their collection and highly recommend to anyone in need of some classically British summer pieces.
Also, just a quick – but stupidly exciting – note to say that if you head on over to Barbour’s Facebook page
, there is currently a competition running where you can win a classically British break away. How amazing is that? It does
end in a matter of days though so head over asap! *Drops everything and enters competition with every finger crossed* 😉
As always, thank you so much for reading. I really hope you enjoyed this post!
