When New Look sent me an email about with a link to their summer personality quiz it came at the perfect time. I was working from home, which meant I was dreaming of holidays and procrastination. I took the quiz straight away, and was told that Barbados was the answer to my troubles. Sun, sea, sand and reggae is all right by me. Still, my holiday plans don’t stretch much further than France this Summer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make the most of it. So when New Look asked me to choose a few items that would be holiday perfect, I knew exactly what I wanted.
This has been the year of stripes in my wardrobe. I can’t get enough of the classic breton stripe top, so this long sleeve beauty is perfect for pairing with distressed denim shorts and these white sneakers, for a casual daytime look. Once night time hits it’s on with the jeans, and off with the sneakers, embracing ballet flats and accessorising with an almost patriotic watch. The French definitely know how to do chic, and it’s something I always admire when I’m walking the streets of Chamonix or Provence. Hopefully these will help me get a little closer to that perfect look when I’m away this summer.
