Since this summer sun doesn't appear to be disappearing anytime soon, I've decided to add a few more hot weather appropriate pieces to my wardrobe. See, I'm beginning to run out of outfit choices - it's not usual for us to have this much heat! And so I beginning to realise that, whilst I'm well stocked up on jumpers and big jackets, I'm running thin on dresses, and bottoms that aren't jeans. Here are 3 trends that I'm hoping to incorporate into my wardrobe as I shop!

1.) Rope Sandals

I started off unsure - I feared the 'rope sandal' was far too close to it's infamous 'Dad sandal' sibling, and I wasn't too keen on walking around looking like one of JC's disciples. But, alas, as usual social media did its brainwash thing, and after seeing the rope sandal styled up numerous times by my favourite influencers in different ways, I decided that I absolutely needed to get my hands on a pair. They're actually far easier to style than I thought they would be - dresses, jeans, floppy skirts - everything seems to go perfectly, and they're surprisingly more comfortable than I thought they would be, too. I would definitely recommend getting a pair!

2.) Maxi Dresses

This year it seems that midi dresses and slip dresses have been all the rage, but I think a maxi dress for summer is always a classic. If you pick right, they're easy to take from day to night, simply swap your Adidas Stan Smiths for some scrappy heeled sandals and you've instantly got an elegant look for evening time. Quiz currently have a wonderful collection of maxi dresses, my personal favourite being this royal blue number, which I would pair with white trainers or slip on sandals in the day and a straw bag and oversized sunnies to match.

3.) Co-Ords 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good co-ord in the wardrobe is a must! Because it's the set with endless options. I just received this beautiful co-ord set from Missy Empire, and have been loving the pleated flared culottes, that I have been wearing practically every day. For on trend prints - opt for polka dots or leopard prints - perfect for the rest of the Summer season!
