Summer chic at its best.

Ok, I actually discovered this lookbook by Lauren Moffatt a week ago and it has just been sitting open on my computer since. I absolutely love it and can’t stop looking at it.

It is just such a great lazy summer outfit. I would happily wear each piece. But I think standout for me would have to be the high waist-ed striped trousers (with the nifty gold zip). How long have I dreamed of owning a pair of these without even realizing it? A very long time it seems.

I think the real trick with this collection has to be the accessorizing. Yes, the individual pieces are amazing. And would look great on most. But paired with those chunky heels, cute socks, great flat hats, sunnies and silk scarfs it is a true winning recipe... get ready for summer chic. And thanks to dear Lauren we now know exactly what to wear with our cotton dresses to make our outfits pop.

This is the first time I have posted pretty much every picture from a collection; I love it that much.

Sidenote: Girls of NZ please note - no denim cut offs in sight and still a great, comfortable, breezy look that will keep you cool without a bit of butt cheek hanging out.

I have cut offs, and wear them. So it is hypocritical to bad mouth them, and I do see a huge place for them in a summer wardrobe. But what I will say, is… for summer there is a huge array of choice, living in a pair of denim cut offs like 50% of the New Zealand population appears to be already doing (including some odd looking men) isn’t always the best option. Especially when they don’t suit all.

Try Mrs Moffatts amazing white red and blue striped shorts instead.

  1. I wish I had lovely long legs like the model to pull off the socks and heels - alas I shall have to resign myself to looking at these gorgeous images!
