I love summer fashion.  However, I am a pain to shop with because I am not great at making up my mind. I think everything through, over and over again until I am sure that I absolutely love what I am purchasing.  When I do make a purchase though it always makes me smile!

The seasonal change-over

I have written before about how I change my wardrobe over from winter to summer fashion  (although this is not always strictly necessary in Ireland).  Adding a few key fashion pieces every season updates my wardrobe and makes me feel like everything is new, when in fact I am great at recycling and shopping my closet.  In many cases those key pieces are accessories.

Yellow Sunshine for summer fashion

A few of you who have known me a long time will know that I used to have a shop.  It was a little art and craft store and it was called An Siopa Bui – literally translated this is The Yellow Shop.  I chose the name because yellow makes me happy.  It makes me think of sunshine and it lifts my mood.

Imagine my excitement when I had a look at the Hotter Shoes spring summer range.  Bright citrus yellow – I was in my element.  I chose these fabulous citrus yellow Livvy pump with funky polka dot punch outs,  and of course the matching Lydia handbag.  It is a perfect size and the contrasting strap is a great length for a cross body bag.

My go to Summer outfit

If you see me on a sunny day this is probably what I will be wearing!  I have paired my yellow accessories with my new summer dress.  Navy is such a fresh alternative to black and this dress, rather than being polka-dotted is dotted with tiny white anchors adding to the summer feel.  The style really suits my curvy body shape and I feel so comfortable wearing it – especially accessorised with yellow.

Summer Sunglasses

When I was getting ready to go out on our adventure I popped on my specs.  A little secret here:  I am very short-sighted so I treated myself to these fab designer specs a few years ago.  The optician changed the lenses to my prescription.  Now I can look trendy and see where I am going.
