Add some linens to your summer wardrobe this season read more
Linen for us has to be the ultimate summer fashion material. Not only does it look great but the cool, light fabric ensure warmer weather doesnâ€™t get the better of you. A linen lover herself, Laurie from Vanity & Me shows us why linen should be lining your wardrobe this season.
You may have seen on my Instagram stories, my little trying on session in Laura Ashley? I was immediately drawn to these wide-legged linen trousers and as soon as they were on my body it was love. I already have a very similar linen jacket from the brand thatâ€™s from the last collection to pair as a suit
Linenâ€™s a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it Iâ€™m a lover!
This jacket must have proved to be very popular from the last Laura Ashley collection for it to be relaunched for this SS18.
Iâ€™ve already worn this jacket that was acquiredÂ just before last winter. It looked great with a roll neck jumper and Iâ€™ve also worn it with a belt, utility style. The round neck makes it easy and versatile to mix other clothing with and this linen is thicker than your average and itâ€™s very soft, so doesnâ€™t crease quite so much as your lighter linen, but I love the simplicity of linen and all its natural behaviour.
You can see the true texture of the material. Itâ€™s super soft and comfortable to wear. I like the button detailing and the trousers have buttons either side at the waist just above the pockets. Iâ€™ve paired the suit with a silky Coral top and my Orange wedge sandals to add a pop of colour, but thatâ€™s the beauty of this biscuitÂ colour, it will pair with anything.
Looking towards the sun going down, hasnâ€™t the weather been just so beautiful? I couldnâ€™t get that wardrobe change over done quick enough. The summer stuff is out and last winters clothes have been put away with the lids firmly shut until next time. I was very happy to see the back of it!
Iâ€™m still going to be wearingÂ theÂ stripe Laura Ashley dressÂ from last year, the quality of this brand is exceptional and I remember how popular the dress was. I also have a gorgeous outfit to share with you when Iâ€™m on my holidays. Yay! Counting down the days! Not long now! Laura Ashley has some gorgeous dresses this year, Iâ€™ve just spotted a gorgeous,Â Kaftan on there, why didnâ€™t I see that before?!!
Hereâ€™s to more sun and relaxed style!
