Good morning everyone, today’s post is based around this linen jumpsuit. I have had this in my closet for a while now, it’s one of the last pieces I bought from Karen Millen before they were taken over by Boohoo. So today is the day that it makes it’s appearance. Linen is the ideal material for this warm climate, and I do love a jumpsuit.
So like I mentioned earlier this white jumpsuit is from Karen Millen. As I was browsing through their website as I normally would do. Most of you will know by now about my love affair with this brand, this goes back to my teens. Now what caught my eye as I was scrolling through was the criss cross back detailing on the jumpsuit. It’s an instant summer outfit, channelling classic French Riviera style. The jumpsuit is made from breathable linen in a relaxed silhouette. Love that I can use the ties to cinch in my waist.
Now I wanted to keep the outfit monochromatic and therefore opted for some white sneakers/trainers. This pair is from Superga and I adore wearing them, I find a white pair makes an outfit look much more put together. Although the downside is that they tend to get dirty very easily. This classic light weight pair is just perfect and versatile and works with most outfits. At an affordable price you really can’t go wrong. Also if you are doing a vast amount of walking then these are going to be your best friend. Of course once on the beach I would change these for a pair of flip flops.
Moving on and onto my bag I was ummming and ahhhring between this one and my Loewe basket bag. Eventually opting for this Cult Gaia Millie rattan tote bag which I bought from Net-A-Porter. This is the label’s answer to the spring’s straw bag trend, it is just as distinct and cool as their previous ones. This ‘Millie’ style is woven from beige rattan in a spherical silhouette with an equally rounded top handle. It has a linen lining patterned with the vivid print created in collaboration with Brazilian artist Lane Marinho. A cute and unique bag which has enough room for all my daily essentials.
Finally for the finishing touches and keeping with the white I grabbed my Illesteva cat-eye sunglasses. Absolutely adore this slim version which amps up the statement factor. On my lips I am wearing the shade Feel So Grand in the Retro Matte Lip colour by M.A.C. I wanted to add a pop of colour hence the reason for wearing a red lip. So there you have it my outfit for the beach!
