[Outfit] The Anti Glastonbury Look

So July has begun! Gosh, where has the year gone?! It seems only a minute ago that Ben and I were on our journey home from South Africa, ready to face 2014. Suddenly we've finished half of the year and the summer is half over... A few days ago I went to Shoreditch with the lovely Michelle, who I managed to wangle into taking a few pictures of me in between a mammoth catch up.

Ask any fashion blogger and they'll tell you their inbox was bombarded with "get the Glasto look" and "be festival ready" emails. No judgment to any of you who do enjoy using a portaloo and baby wipes for 4 days in the name of music, but they really are wasted on someone like me. The idea of it makes me ill, although not as ill as some of you Glasto-goers are this morning if Facebook is anything to go by. So, here is my as-close-to-boho-as-youll-ever-see-me look...

It starts with the new love in my life, my Christophe Sauvat bag from my-wardrobe (I met with the online retailer a few weeks ago and am very excited for whats coming up for them in the next few months.  They have tonnes of new brands and exclusives with my favourite names).  The bag itself is the perfect size for me getting around town.  Big enough for an iPad, and small enough to not get in the way.  The colours are fab and I've been pairing it with smart dresses and bright heels as well as daytime outfits like this.

The other accessories are my summer staples, old and new.  The sunglasses are from Jimmy Choo's collaboration with Carrera last year, and are pretty much glued to my face as soon as the sun comes out.  The watch is from Shore Projects, a recent addition.  Set up by two surf-nuts, the watches are water proof (unless you plan to go deep sea diving in them) and come in lots of different coloured strap options which are changeable - I have this green and a sky blue. The other bracelets are from a dear friend Kira, who runs Owen and Savary and a present from the team at Monica Vinader.

The shorts were a steal from the Gap sale, and my trusty pumps are Superga.  I forgot I had them and found them in my shoe cave (we have a little basement which I have taken over, Ben is allowed one small space to house his coats, the rest is all mine) and have been wearing them every day since. They're very, very comfortable and the colour goes with everything (I feel very French in them when I'm wearing my default-Breton stripes).  The shirt is from Eileen Fisher, my first piece from the brand - and definitely not my last.  It's become somewhat of a staple ever since it arrived in my wardrobe a month or so ago... Happy July people have a good week!
