Karen Millen Bird Print Cotton SkirtI'm past throwing tantrums over England's temperamental weather for a little while, though I'll admit it's got less to do with acceptance, and more to do with this summer's upcoming travels!  I'm counting down the days to this month's return to the South of France and the beautiful weather that (hopefully) awaits!  Besides stressing about my severe lack of bikinis and time to get everything done between now and wheeling my suitcase off to Sainte-Maxime, my mind is firmly fixed on colourful settings and sure, pretty things.  There's nothing so inspiring as travelling and I'm beginning to wonder whether this can apply even before you've been away; for one reason or another, the idea of becoming reacquainted with the South of France prompted me to fall into this Alice in Wonderland themed concept with a warm, tropical twist...

Evidence of 'tumbling down the rabbit hole'?
I'm pretty convinced most of my summer wardrobe would work well with this Rose Water Opal set by Lily and Rose, however for this occasion I've opted for a tie-front sleeveless shirt that's been sitting in my wardrobe for a while, along with a colourful new purchase.  Late last week I picked up this gorgeous Karen Millen skirt in their summer sale; the tropical print combined with A-line design is such a magical combination!  I'm constantly torn between soft jersey materials that hug the body and structured shapes that make you feel as though 'everything is in place' - though this skirt may just have won the battle for the latter!

Happy July!  I hope this month treats you all really well and delivers bundles of sunshine and good news!

With love,
