My Summer Favourites

From books to new wardrobe basics, as it's already starting to get darker earlier, I'm already reaching for the hot chocolate and my Christmas pyjamas, I thought I'd share a few of my new favourites over Summer that I think are worth shouting about! 

Books

Beach Read by Emily Henry

I recommended this book in my 2020 summer book recommendations and I'm so glad I did! While it's not actually set in Summer, it was still the perfect romance book and such an easy read to enjoy on a sunny day in the garden or at the beach! I definitely recommend checking this one out if you're in a reading rut and want an easy read to pick up and devour in a day or two. 

When the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

It seems like ages ago I picked up this book but I still remember how much I enjoyed it! Such a unique story of Kya Clark, known as "Marsh Girl" - suspected of murdering Chase Andrews. A beautifully written story of Kya's unusual childhood and exploring family differences. I could definitely see this becoming a firm favourite for years to come! 

Fashion

I've definitely made a conscious effort over the past year to cut down my spending on fast fashion and focussing on picking up more timeless pieces to streamline my wardrobe. 

ASOS  Denim Jumpsuit

This has been a firm wardrobe staple since the start of the year that I always love wearing - every time it's washed, I'm wearing it right away! It's such a fun jumpsuit to style and I know even as the weather cools, I'll be layering it up with jumpers, turtle necks and a whole lotta mustard (colours)!

Veja Trainers - V-12

These were definitely my lockdown-made-me-do-it purchase. I absolutely love these! Veja trainers are made from vegan leather and are a great everyday staple. I went for the classic V-12s and I've been wearing them whenever I can. While I can confirm that they are not the best for long days out, they are still great to throw on daily and they go with almost everything. I also know that these will be lasting me, hopefully, a good few years! 

Hundred Club tee

I've been eyeing up the Hundred Club tees for ages and when I saw they were sending out a batch last month, it felt like the perfect payday treat! Hundred club is a great company that minimise waste from fast fashion by only printing 100 of each t-shirt or jumper. It makes it such a fun concept and avoids any leftover tees going to waste. The t-shirt quality is insane! It is more expensive than larger retailers but it really is worth it. 

Mini Twist Hoop Earrings by Laura Emily 

I instantly fell in love with these earrings when I saw them on my feed. I was in real need of a new pair of everyday earrings and these were perfect. The quality is amazing and I love the twister element. They are a small hoop as well which makes them great for every day. I absolutely adore these and definitely recommend checking out Laura's other pieces on Etsy



Music

My music hasn't changed much over the past few months, I've been preferring to just select a random playlist on Spotify and listen to whatever they've thrown on there. But, there are still a few standouts to me. 

This Band Camino 

This band has been getting me through working from home - a great soundtrack to enjoy throughout the day. If you haven't checked them out, I recommend doing so. 

Novo Amor

For something slower, or if you like listening to music while you read, Novo Amor's new EP "If We're Being Honest" is the perfect listen to welcome in the autumn. I mean, they have a song called "Halloween" - what's more autumn/winter welcoming than that?! I love having this on in the evenings to wind down. 

Hope you enjoyed this little favourites post and I hope you're doing great,
