The sun is still shining and we've realised our wardrobes are 80% stuff for bad weather. So we're investing in some fun summer bits we'll probably never wear again!

Only when we have an unusual stretch of good weather do we realise how completely unprepared for it we actually are. We  usually live in jeans, have more coats than we know what to do with and have jumpers spilling our our drawers. So this week we're investing in some summer staples to see us through.

I’ve never been tempted to fall for the Gen Z yellow-hype….. until this & Other Stories dress. Its sheer, billowy sleeves and flowing skirt would be ideal for this hotter-than-usual summer we’re experiencing and the bodiced-waist gives it a dreamy prairie vibe. Total city-escapism, but in dress form….

€99, & Other Stories

I'm digging the Roman Holiday vibes of this bucket bag and it looks fab with all my summer midi skirts. Now, where do I find me a Gregory Peck?

I'm loving anything lemon print at the moment so while these aren't my usual style, I had to have them. And when are we ever going to get to dress up and prance around like we live in the middle of the Spain if not now? 

€60, Monsoon

Brenda, Senior Staff Editor

I really, really want one of these mirrors. Apparently, it’s called a carriage mirror, which makes me think of adventures on the Orient Express or Agatha Christie mysteries. Swoon.
