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!
This post was brought to you in collaboration with Barbour.*
These are stunning outfits ! I like that black shirt dress

The exact same thing comes to mind when I think of Barbour – never knew they did 'normal' clothes haha. Love that dress though – it looks soo comfy! As always you look beauts 🙂
Thanks so much lovely 🙂
Love the t-shirt it is quite unique I have nothing like that in my wardrobe either – and I agree I thought countryside too.

Ooh definitely get it lovely, such a gorgeous quality dress 🙂
Oh, now this black dress is STUNNING! As are the shoes you've styled it with. I agree, I always though they just did coats haha. You look amazing as always lovely lady xx

Thanks so much lovely, so kind of you 🙂
Wow so exciting, lucky you! I love Barbour and you look great!
Ah thanks so much lovely 🙂
Love this look! I would never have thought that Barbour did clothes like this – like you said, I always associate them with jackets xx
So true isn't it lovely, that's exactly what I used to think 🙂
That dress is so gorgeous, I had no idea Barbour did items outside the jackets but this looks like something I'd definitely want in my wardrobe!

This was such a fun read Ellie! Totally love how Barbour have branched out, yet the pieces remain to their style. That dress is simply stunning! Looking forward to your slider/sandals post too – they're lush! 🙂
Thanks so much lovely, I'm so in love with the sliders too, so lovely 🙂
So gorgeous! I didn't realise that Barbour did such pretty clothes : ) I really need to look into them. I also love the dress and sliders. xxx

Thank you lovely 🙂
The first thing I usually think of about Barbour is the horrible smell of the wax jackets!!
But these new clothes have made me change my mind about the brand.
You look really summery in the clothes you picked. I shall have to go and see what else they do.
Thank you, glad you like the picks and the post 🙂
Both looks are gorgeous! <3
Thank you lovely 🙂
The dress is so versatile, love it this way! I would wear this tee all the time. And love both the shoes! I will think of Barbour a whole new way now
Thanks SO much, so happy you like it 🙂
You look stunning and you're right, I would never think delicate summer dresses and blouse tops when it came to Barbour. My Mum had a wax coat I always remember as a child, we lived in the countryside in Ilkley and it was very much Barbour jacket and wellies. I am going to check them out, adore that belt too, you're the perfect Barbour model x
Thanks so so much lovely, what a lovely comment. So glad you liked it 🙂
Such a great brand to collaborate with! I love both outfits but the dress is my favourite! Hope you have a lovely day! 🙂 xx
So amazing aren't they, I feel really lucky to have worked with them 🙂
These outfits are just absolutely lovely. Love your simple preppy laid-back style!
