THAT BASKET BAG



The day after I shot these photos, I saw that the amazing Emma from EJ Style had also posted about wearing all black in the sunshine and I just thought YES girl! Whilst I'm definitely wearing a lot more colour these days, I just feel like there's nothing more chic than an all black outfit when the sun comes out! You've just gotta get the right pieces to stop the look from feeling too winter goth, and more FASHUN hunnaayy!


And what are those pieces I hear you ask? Well, the accessories of course. And one piece in particular, which unless you've been hiding under a rock, you'll know is the accessory of the season - the basket bag! A piece now as much for a day of shopping as it is for a trip to the beach. What works especially well with this Zara version, is the longer strap meaning it's super easy to sling on the shoulder, with the cute little pom poms adding a little summin' summin'! It's also just the perfect size, as I've seen some other fab basket bags about but they look as though my every day items would get lost forever in the bottom of them. So if you can find the last few of these bags left on the shelves in Zara, grab one while you still can. SERIOUSLY - BAG OF THE SEASON.
The sandals are another piece that need a quick mention just because of how much of a bargain they were. After seeing and *nearly* purchasing a Kurt Geiger version of the pair at the end of last summer, imagine how happy I was to find and still be loving a really similar version in the form of this Matalan pair three seasons later! Super comfy with the platform sole, with a subtle nod to the espadrille wicker sole trend - but much more practical with a rubber base. And of course, a black summer outfit is never complete without a pair of reflective sunnies (If you're reading - THANKS Penny!)

Outfit:
H&M Reflective Sunglasses, Topshop Boutique Crochet Top (last season, other Crochet Tops here and here), Zara Basket Bag (similar here and here), ASOS Black Trousers, Matalan Flatform Sandal
