Usually summer calls for bright colours such as yellow or orange. However, I’m currently obsessed with grey and blush muted tones to keep me cool this season. I sewed this grey skirt back in winter but its slitted and airy so it transitions well into hotter weather. (Check out my post about the skirt fabric and pattern details in ‘Finished Pieces’, Fleece Skirt Self-Drafted) To brighten up the whole look, I added some white such as this off-shoulder top and sneakers.
This blush coloured Rino and Pelle jacket is made out of a single layer of suede, so it’s perfectly light for summer. Got it for a steal at a Mary’s Living and Giving thrift store in Portobello Market, London. Make sure to visit this store when you’re in London! It is a boutique charity shop of new and pre-loved clothing from brands and designers ranging from Alexander McQueen to Zara. Proceeds from each item sold are donated to Save the Children.
I love discovering charity boutiques and buying fashion that makes a difference. Let me know of any cute charity boutiques that you think I should check out!
