How to create a casual summer outfit by combining a pair of white trousers with a fresh lilac top. I love pastels combined with white for summer. It looks so fresh and soft. My lilac sweatshirt is from Cos. They seem to have sold out of the lilac colour however have the same style in pink and fresh mint green.
I admit that my lilac summer sweatshirt is oversized. I am about 5’7″ and have narrow shoulders so can take some volume on the top half of my body. There are certainly a lot of voluminous styles around this season, especially for dresses. Whenever I pop into our local village I see women of all ages and sizes wearing loose voluminous shapes. I would encourage you to try a couple of looser styles just to see if they work for you. It is so easy for us to get stuck in a rut with our clothing. You never know you might be surprised.
I have slung a lightweight wool scarf around my neck. It was actually quite breezy the day we took these photos. Even though the day might start out hot you never know with our mercurial climate so I normally take some sort of cover up with me if I am going to be out all day or visiting friends in their gardens.
