Wishlist: British Summer Time


joules summer wishlist
With just a couple of weeks to go before the clocks go forward, I think just about everyone (myself included) is dreaming of a new summery wardrobe. Usually I much prefer dressing for winter - layers! jumpers! leggings and boots! - but around this time of year I always get cravings for pastel shades and floaty fabrics. I'm loving pretty much everything from Joules at the moment; all their clothes look so classic and have a British summer holiday feel to them, but it's all still really wearable. I have a couple of dresses from Joules in my wardrobe already and they're such great quality too, I'm sure they'll last for many summers to come!

I absolutely love the Lula Dress with its navy floral pattern and classic cut. I could just see myself wearing this for a stroll around the city on a sunny day, complete with oversized sunglasses ready for a stop at a streetside cafe (*cough* beer garden *cough*). I love the nautical theme running through some of the items too, how cuuuute are the wee red wellies?! They'd look great with the stripey dress for a day at the beach. And yes, in this country wellies are definitely a summer wardrobe essential.

I managed to finally find a new winter jacket I loved this year, so I'd quite like to update my summer jacket too. Classic macs and trench coats are my favourites and I love this Maycroft Coat. As well as jackets, dresses, tops and accessories, Joules also have a nice selection of women's skirts and even some lovely homewares. I couldn't resist adding the picnic hamper to my wishlist, I NEED IT!

What's on your summer wishlist?
