SUMMER ESSENTIALS: COUNTRY RETREAT

What's Hot: Summer Essentials

ISABEL MARANT sweater / CONVERSE sneakers / BAND OF OUTSIDERS shirt / J BRAND shorts / ELIZABETH & JAMES backpack / HATMAKER straw hat

SWEATER: Even in the summer weather can be pretty unpredictable out in the country. At night especially you may need a cover up as the sun goes down and a knit sweater is the perfect solution to keep warm yet still stylish.  

SNEAKERS: Lets be honest Converse is now consider a wardrobe staple. Their comfort and style alone make them a favourite but a high top is a great ankle boot alternative for long summer walks. 

SHIRT: It's no coincidence that a plaid shirt is the Olsen's go to item. There super versatile and can be used for numerous outfit styles. Pop one on as a cover up with your favourite denim cut off's and you'll fit right into the countryside backdrop. 

SHORTS: Denim cut off's should be your first packed item if heading to the country. They have a foolproof mix of cool, fashionable, durability and comfort. I can promise you without fail they'll be worn everyday of your vacation. 

BACKPACK: Although you want to maintain a level of style during a vacation, the whole idea of a country retreat is to get back to nature and enjoy every aspect of the great outdoors. To be able to do that you'll need to be hands free which makes this suede Elizabeth & James backpack the ideal everyday bag. 

HAT: Keeping the sun off your head throughout the day is a must when you're out exploring, not only is it an essential part of sun protection but a straw type hat can also be dressed up with a floral mini dress and sandals for a more sociable situation such as lunch or dinner with friends.

I never had a chance to share this editorial with you last week (booo) but as it's so ridiculously special I thought you wouldn't mind me sharing even if you had already seen it. 

There is nothing featured in this shoot that doesn't scream extravagant elegance. Naturally this starts with model Hollie May Saker and ends with not only Steve Hiett's exquisite photography but also the incredible wardrobe curated by Elissa Castelbou. Sometimes certain individuals talent's bewilders me to the highest of levels...

Happy Tuesday! 

I'm back from my countryside retreat and well you could say my bubble has well and truly burst, as I currently sit and type in my home office, hot tea in hand mulling over my disgustingly long "to do" list...

HIGH FIVE FRIDAY

Shoe Cult Delphone Heel
1. Her name was Delphone 
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Nasty Gal's footwear range "Shoe Cult" but even I was a little surprised to see that they could have created such an outstanding pair of heels like these Delphone numbers. As if I needed anymore convincing I recently spotted  Lucky Magazine editor in chief Eva Chen  cavorting around her office in them. Grab a pair here.
2. True Blue, Oh Baby
Usually in terms of manicure's I'm typically a red or pink kinda girl but recently I discovered this "blueberry" shade by Barry M and well let's just say my warm hue day's are over (for the time being anyway) Without fail this pop of colour literally goes with everything and anything in my closet so of course it's a keeper. 
classy sno-cones
3. Snow Class
I can't say I've ever indulged in the shaved, sugar syrup ice that snow cones have to offer. So when I spotted this grown up version via Pinterest earlier this week I knew it was something I had to try. Classy sno-cone cocktails anyone?
4. Technically Speaking
I feel like I've been majorly letting my laptop down in the style stakes lately. Is everyone aware that dressing up your keyboard is an actual thing now? After a little long time researching this new found tech craze I stumbled upon this pretty floral design via Etsy and I can already sense this fad could be ever so slightly addictive.

5. Quote of the week
How many times have you had a more than unfortunate day that will make you feel like your whole life is one big disaster? Although sometimes thinking otherwise can be tough (believe me I know, I get it) sometimes you just have to look past the misfortunes of that day. Focusing on the bigger picture and see that whilst it may feel like everything is falling apart there's more than likely little ray's of sunshine throughout your daily life that you may have chosen to ignore...

Happy Friday!

I'm heading to the country this weekend for some much needed chill time. I've scheduled some posts for the next couple of day's so don't worry no tumble weed will be passing through the blog, haha! I'll also be updating the Lilylovelock instagram and my personal instagram too.
