Late August is such an amazing time of year. It’s one lazy, late Summer day after another, the weather is still pretty warm and the evenings hold an orange sunset kind of magic.
There’s no denying that Summer is ending though so I always do my best to savour the last full month of Summer by embracing every moment that involves sunny days, beaches and BBQ’s.
I also love late Summer fashion, it’s the last chance to soak up the sun before Autumn style starts to flirt with us and so I enjoy letting my August wardrobe reflect that.
It’s always nice to be able to dress up for those rare British sunny days, I think all fellow Brits reading this can agree that waking up in the morning and throwing back the curtains to bright sunshine is one of the best feelings!
Today was a day that was quintessential late Summer glory and what better way to honour that than by going for that classic laid-back Cali look. Cool, Summer-y and effortless, no one does Summer Style like the Californians and being a Brit Girl, sometimes it’s nice to grab a bit of that Cali sun and inject it into an outfit. The bold patterns and brightly coloured statement pieces mixed with plainer more casual items make for a simple yet put together classic Summer look.
