Remember how I told you all I wasn’t much of a fan of simplistic style? Well… I’m eating my words just a little. Yesterday I went shopping in Zara and Gap. Could two shops pioneer a simple, laidback style any more than these two? Probably not. I picked up a few breton stripe tops, plain tees and these wonderful peg legs.

I just adore these trousers. They’re a little bit military, perfectly flattering and oh-so comfortable. I can’t wait to wear them all summer long, with wedges, heels, pumps and gladiators. Have you bought any summer staples recently?
Tonight the Mr and I are slipping on our dancing shoes (well, I’ll be wearing my dancing shoes. He’ll be wearing his 30 second shuffle shoes) and heading out to a charity ball. My future family-in-law work very closely with the Chernobyl Children’s Project and the ball is being thrown to raise money for children over in Belarus.
I’ve got the most wonderful floral maxi dress to wear – yesterday on Twitter I asked for tips on how to style it appropriately for a black tie event. I’m hoping some killer heels, statement jewellery and a smart clutch will be enough – what do you think? Any advice? Are you doing anything special this Bank Holiday weekend? Do share!
