Glamorous holiday look

Hope outfit with foot in pool




There is nothing like wandering round St. Tropez and observing the million dollar yachts. A girl can dream! Not that a yacht would be on my wish list. I am not a good sailor and consider that there are much more important things in life. Now a dip in a lovely cool swimming pool is another matter.

St. Tropez does have a sense of glamour with memories of chic women from past decades. It exudes a casual chic with floating silks and a touch of bling.

What better way to capture this vibe than a pair of grey linen trousers with a touch of sparkle and a diaphanous cream silk top from one of my favourite brands Hopefashion.

The linen lounge trousers have a beautiful lustre due to a special print process. I found the elasticated waist very comfortable and the straight leg style flattering. The silk asymmetric top is semi sheer (I wore a white camisole underneath). It is a great layering piece. You could ring the changes by wearing a different colour underneath.

The grey necklace I am wearing is from St. Tropez market.


Similar at Nordstrom and John Lewis .





I have shown the outfit worn casually with white plimsolls and also with grey block heeled sandals.

    I love this look too. You look so fresh and chic. It’s nice to see the outfit with different footwear, I like both but I do love those block heel sandals!

    Hi Josephine
    I have ordered the top it looks so good on you. I emailed Nayna and mentioned that I had seen you wearing it. Nothing like being a copy cat!
    Best wishes. Margo
