Susan of Unefemme, her husband and I spent a wonderful summer’s day visiting Kew botanical gardens at the beginning of July. We had arranged in advance for my photographer Laura Hines to meet us there and to take some photos as we explored the delights of the glorious scenery. The only question was to ask ourselves what to wear for a summer visit to Kew Gardens.
I kept my outfit really simple. I am wearing a pair of white linen
The stunning exhibition of glass sculptures “Reflections on Nature” by Chihuly, an American sculptor and entrepreneur runs till 27th October and adds another dimension to the atmosphere and floral displays.
What to wear for a summer visit to Kew Gardens
White tee shirt from Cos. I find this style of tee very flattering as it tapers towards the hemline for an A-line fit. I have several in different colours. My sandals are a few years old by Gabor similar. I found the same style in bronze. My blue exotic fish print scarf from Chicatanyage scarf shop.
Versatility and how to extend your wardrobe. I am wearing my exotic fish print scarf as a sarong over my cream linen trousers. If I was on the beach I would wear it without the trousers. My blue bead necklace is from my favourite jewellery stall in Grimaud market Lesbijouxdenatascha

You might be interested to see what I wore for a visit to Kew Gardens a couple of years ago. As I believe in buying clothes that will last more than one season I still have and wear the print trousers and top and the cream jacket that I wore back then.
