Sunshine Knits

I’m a huge fan of summer knitwear (yes, that’s a ‘thing’). When the weather starts to turn I find it difficult to swap my cosy jumpers for flimsy t-shirts – I need easing in. So rather than reaching straight for a strappy sundress and a bottle of Garnier Summer Body, I take it slow with a pastel knit and no coat.

No coat! In Yorkshire! It’s a summer miracle.

I’ve had this mint green chunky knit for ages, and it always gets pushed to the back of my drawers when winter descends. It was lovely to dig it out and throw it on with skinnies and heels for a relatively mild day. I teamed it with a poppy red Brit-Stitch bag (a new client of mine) and my favourite sunglasses and left all coats, hats and scarves behind. Finally!

What do you wear to ease you from winter to summer dressing? Or have you been at the Garnier Summer Body since February? You sneaky thing.



I totally agree!! This spring is turning out to be pretty cold so we still have to wear sweaters, so I usually just wear a lightweight loosely knitted sweaters. I can’t wear shorts/t-shirts yet it’s not the right time yet.


I’ve seen those bags pop up all over blogs and they’re so lovely! Look like the perfect size for a weekend bag. I need to invest in some more summer knits!


Haha you’re right, I’ve always found it hard to say good bye to my beloved chunky knits once Spring is there (although there isn’t much else I miss about winter in the summer).

PS: I just found your blog and skint yet stylish fits perfectly. Glad I found it!

Simply loving that bag and the shade of it! would make a perfect camera bag! I love summer knitwear too! crochet tops baby all the wayyy! x


Sometimes I really wish I was able to get away with sweaters this time of year! But as I live in California, it is currently 85 degrees (in Fahrenheit) so sweaters are a thing of the past until October. 🙁


I agree, summer knits are perfect transition to summer, that’s if we get a summer. I have to admit after some shots of my pale legs a few weeks ago I’ve been at the fake tan, dove is my tanner of choice!

I tend to go for denim shirts or blouses with a vest top underneath.
Although the bank holiday weekend just gone, ive got to admit it was scortching, and the summer dresses did come out.
Rain again tho so denim shirt and chinos is today’s choice
