MY SUMMER MUST HAVES – PART 1
Ask me my favourite colour, and I am that awkward turtle that turns a subtle shade of red because, LOL my favourite colour is White (closely followed by black, both of which I’m not sure are even colours?) because as basic as it may be… there is nothing like the clean, crisp shade of white that screams fresh, that screams chic, that screams summer (I mean, nothing screams summer in the UK at the moment but, you get the gist) and for me, it kinda just screams “pair me with some denim or chambray and I will make you look like a sassy, effortless queen”.
So that’s what I did, I picked out my absolute favourite pieces from Fat Face’s Coastal Whites Edit – which took me far longer than I care to admit, go on their website and you will see why #Babein #CanIHaveItAllPlease – I called my gal pal Hannah (who’s also picked out her summer must haves from Fat Face so go over and check out her babein looks), and we both headed to Essex – Oh my god, shutuppp – for a picnic and photoshoot because we’re bloggers and it’s totally OK to set up a self timer and snap yourself shoving your face with brie and strawberries. The Fat Face campaign is a High Summer version of their Washed in Happiness campaign and let’s be totally honest… what says happiness more than friends, cute Instagrammable picnics, Strawberries, sexy drinks and brie?
Spoiler; don’t waste your precious time trying to think of an answer for that question because the answer is nothing. Absolutely nothing says happiness more.
Maybe add a Harry Potter audiobook or Grey’s Anatomy marathon into the mix and you might have yourself a winner but other than that, the jury is out…
As I’ve got older, my style has definitely relaxed a little. No longer are the days when I fret about what dress I’m gonna whack on for Mahiki – lol, as if
I’ve even been to Mahiki since my jaunts there at 16 – and generally I’m just a lot more relaxed day to day. This Fat face Hettie stripe longline tunic
is one of my absolute faves for giving off the whole “yeah, I’m casual, I’m chilled but I’m chic AF too”. It’s super light and cosy – jesus christ, you know you’re old when cosy becomes a requirement – and the freshness in the colour and texture makes it perfect for summer.
If you’ve been around me for a while and the conversation has moved onto jeans – when you’re with a bunch of bloggers, it’s not that rare – you will no doubt have heard me wax lyrical about how amazing the Fat Face jeggings
are that I featured in a post a long
time ago (how on earth has that time flown by so quickly?). They’re by far the most comfy, stretchy and well made jeans that I own so I knew immediately that I’d be inserting all
the heart eye’d emojis for these Fat Face Opal Blue super skinny jeans
. Like the jeggings, they’re extremely thick and stretchy and ridiculously
comfortable. I absolutely love the denim wash too, the perfect not too dark, not too light (medium then…
) tone, just nice and fresh (promise I’m not being paid to use fresh a thousand times) and perfect for everyday. Paired with a pair trainers or
sandals, this’ll be my everyday casual Spring go to look.
You know, when the weather finally stops being like “lol, suck it b*tches, you’re having rain in June”.
I love this outfit, mainly because it made me feel all elegant and cute and “I mean, pretty much a princess twirling around in this”
and also because I got to hold a bunch of
flowers and indulge my inner 2 year old. This Fat Face Kirsty Stripe dress
though, is seriously a mega babe. The cut is so girly and feminine and really just does all the talking. I’m all for an accessory but the bow and slightly pouffy skirt means it doesn’t really need them (although
, Hannah rocked a choker and hat with this and looked like the world’s biggest babe, so whatever tickles your pickle). Like the rest of the colour scheme/textures in this post, the blue and white chambray/linen makes this so unbelievably perfect for summer and I may* have worn this twice since photographing this already.
*We all know that means that I’ll wear it so much that by the end of summer my cost per wear would be £0.00000057p. #sorrynotsorry
Finally, for this post – I have another coming on thursday which I’m so excited for you to see – is this look which I’d say is my go to summer outfit. As much as I love pretty dresses and jumpsuits, there’s nothing quite like an A line denim mini and let me just tell you that this Fat Face Carrie A line Denim mini skirt is up there with my all time faves. Not so short that your Dad would spit out his coffee when he see’s you/you show off all your goods every time you move, but short enough to keep you cool and feel sassy and sexy – major, major lols, I’m as sexy as a bin bag – and most importantly, stylish! It’s stretchy so is comfortable AF and houses a major food baby which of course, is my number 1 priority.
Just don’t do up the top button and forget that you undid the rest of them because I did that and genuinely did all the cry laughter at people’s horrified faces!
So that brings me to the end of the first part of my Summer must haves. As you can tell by my excessive fangirling, I am a huge, huge fan of Fat Face’s new Coastal whites collection. Fashionable but relatable, easy to wear but instantly chic. I am all about that kinda life…
Have you checked out the Coastal whites Fat Face collection? What’s your favourite piece? I always love to hear your thoughts 🙂
As always, thanks so much for reading!
