My 5 Spring/Summer Must-Haves!

1. A White Dress - white is my favourite colour for spring/summer... it is so fresh and chic. This bec & bridge dress is perfection. The deep v-neck with gold detail has a fun 70s vibe... paired with a great nude or gold heel this white dress is my go-to party look for summer!

2. Tailored Orange Shorts - this season we are seeing a lot more bright colours being used, one of my favourites has to be orange.... it is definitely the new red. I am obsessed with shorts, they are a great alternative to a skirt and when worn properly shorts have so much attitude. These sass & bide shorts are amazing. Suede is usually thought to be a AW fabric, but in orange they are perfect for summer. These shorts with a cream blouse and a killer heel, is sure to create the perfect balance between femininity and masculinity.

3. Sapphire Blue anything - I am seriously OBSESSED with sapphire blue at the moment, when I got back from NY I realised most of the pieces I bought were in sapphire blue. My favourite though is the perfect sapphire blue shoe! I cannot wait to pair mine with a pair of orange shorts and a cream blouse. Peeptoe has come up with the perfect sandal, AND it comes in the perfect sapphire blue hue... I love it!

4. A LMD - a little metallic dress is essential this summer... it is so essential in fact that I think it has made the LBD obsolete this season. It is an easy-to-wear, versatile piece that you can just throw on last minute for a night out, or for Sunday afternoon cocktails. This camilla & marc dress is the perfect example of the perfect LMD. It is simple and lets the fabric and cut do all the talking.

5. Fluro Nails - one of my favourite things to do while I'm in NY is visit the 24-hour nail salon... there is just something really exciting about being up at 2AM and being able to go and get your nails done, especially in summer when it's really fun to experiment with bright, loud colours. I discovered the colour, Capri by Essie... it is a fiery orange. I bought a bottle home with me and it's seriously going to be on my nails 24/7 this summer!
