Late summer – how to liven up your wardrobe
How to liven up your wardrobe in late summer. I am beginning to feel a little tired of my summer wardrobe. We have had fairly continuous sunshine here in London since the beginning of July so I shouldn’t really complain.
White has definitely been the front runner in my wardrobe this year. I seem to have been wearing it on repeat with a few accents of pink and navy.
What has really kept me going are my accessories. I find that a brightly coloured scarf or a colourful necklace helps to ring the changes even thought the base of the outfit is simple.

I bought the jacket at the beginning of the season and wore it repeatedly until the weather turned too warm for jackets. I will be wearing it again this Autumn.

Do you wear lots of white and light colours in the summer months or do you find it impractical?
