Summer Style

Now that Melbourne is seems to have finally figured out its summer time I'm thinking about what I want to add to my wardrobe over the next few months. Pieces that can work with both through the scorching heat we will have and then move into Autumn.

While web window shopping I've found the following.

ASOS Sheer Pocket Shirt Dress £25.00

I want to wear this over all my black jeans and shorts with big chunky heels

ASOS Jersey Pencil Skirt £20.00

Simple wardrobe staple that can be worn with anything! This also comes in a brown shade

Petite heart pussybow blouse

This summer I'm made about sheer light weight tops, this is a very sweet print and I love the features pussy bow.

Back in Black Denim Skirt from 17Sundays $89.95

I've never owned a denim skirt so this year I will invest in one. 17 Sundays is a new Australian plus size label who I will be reviewing in he future so look out for my updates.

Alisi Nadia Black 1 Piece $179.00

I have 3 swimsuits but none of them are black - shock horror! This one piece I have been lusting over for a long time now. Its perfect for any curvy woman who does not want to show her arms while swimming. I would also team this up with high waisted jeans and shorts and wear this as a bodysuit.

I can't forget some vital and very cute accessories as well.

Dorothy Perkins Khaki loop through waist belt £4.00

I need to add other colour belts to my collection as I want to to mix and match with lighter floral's and more earthy tones. This belt is perfect for that and so cheap!

What's your summer style? What will you be wearing over this these oh so hot months we have coming up?
