I have been wearing dresses most days this summer. They are not only very on trend this season but have been the ideal garment to wear during this hot and humid weather.
However sometimes it is good to ring the changes. In these photos, I have chosen a classic look and have kept my outfit simple yet smart. I have teamed a pair of black linen classic trousers (I found this pair in a charity shop about two years ago). They are by Max Mara. My bargain hunting certainly paid off that day as they fit perfectly and the thick linen hangs well.
I have teamed them with a classic white shirt and added a pop of colour with my Coach crossbody bag bought in the sale last year similar.
I feel this classic summer look would look smart enough for work. Who wears a jacket when the weather is this hot? You could swap the sandals for a pair of flats or low heeled pumps. The addition of a briefcase would elevate the outfit to more formal if you were attending a business meeting.
It was such a glorious day that I could not resist taking a break, sitting in the beautiful gardens at Ham House South West London and enjoying the view. I have used this location on several occasions and you can see more of the gardens here and here.
A good selection of white shirts at Nordstrom.
