The Perfect Floral Co-ord Set for Summer

Finding a perfect coordinating top and skirt or trouser set or summer can be a challenge. I was quite pleased when I came across the Jill tie-front floral-print linen top and matching Jackie skirt by Miguelina. Both the top and skirt are currently available on Yoox and The Outnet.

We all love a great sale, but it’s extra sweet when you find items that you won’t have the opportunity to wear often at a discount. A linen crop top and skirt is strictly for holidays and perhaps the occasional particularly warm day in London.

The set goes perfectly with this Eugenia Kim Anabelle hat in pink (also, last year’s peach version with a bow here), or this pink Maison Michel raffia fedora.

For shoes, Castañer is a go-to brand for espadrille wedges (I like the 85mm height), but I find Soludos classic Mallorca espadrille wedge is more supportive and comfortable. Similar style espadrille wedge sandals are available from an array of retailers at many price points. I may experiment with searching for an affordable pair from the high street as I find it’s difficult to keep these shoes clean, even with frequent use of protectant spray. At 45 GBP these Gaimo for Office wedges looks promising as well as these canvas round-toe espadrille wedges from Boohoo, currently on sale for 16.50.

Another footwear option is, of course, Hermès Oran sandals. A new pair start at 495 GBP and preloved Orans seem to go for around 350. If possible, I recommend buying Orans duty-free in the airport and saving about 20%, that means you’re paying only a bit above the average resale price. I quite like this two-tone white and silver version (the colour for this Oran model is called Blanc/Gris Argenté).

For a casual bag, the Clare V Alice bag (currently available on Yoox for 115 GBP!) is a practical choice. For a slightly dressier vibe, I like the Hermès Kelly or a Mark Cross bag. This pink salmon Mark Gross Grace box bag looks like a perfect colour match, and it’s on sale 🥰.

Sunnies largely depend on the shape of your face and hat, but some of my favourites are Oliver Peoples Georgica if you fancy a cat-eye and these Dolce & Gabbana’s are one of my favourites.
