Summer season outfit inspiration: part 2

It feels so good to say that summer is here at last. Let’s hope it’s here to stay because the number of outdoor events on the Feather & Stitch calendar is growing exponentially. This week I’m focusing on the more relaxed events we’re attending because putting a stylish yet casual outfit together requires the same careful consideration as a major social occasion, so today we’re drawing the fine line between being over or under done.

We’re really looking forward to the school Sports Day at the end of June; call it our competitive nature but we want to win style points well as the adult egg and spoon race. To wit we are eyeing the delicious Des Petits Hauts strappy silk dresses in a watermelon or star print and our flat Billi Bi sandals (we didn’t want to do the wheelbarrow race anyway). Add a cropped jacket or longline cardi if it’s a cool day.

This summer we’re also heading to a family friendly festival with a group of friends and all our children in tow. I toyed with the idea of wearing a bohemian dress but the reality is a pair of relaxed DL1961 boyfriend jeans and a Rails sleeveless Britt shirt are going to be far more practical on the day and considerably easier to launder after the event (insert ice-cream spills and hot dog stains here). Speaking of practicality, I’m going to pair this outfit with the leather sky blue Liebeskind Biggi bag; it’s zippered, has oodles of space and tassles. What more could a festival-going mum ask for?

Lastly we’re planning a few day trips and picnics throughout the summer holidays and need an outfit that can be styled any which way, which is why I’m choosing the Des Petits Hauts Kimoli Dress for these occasions. It’s made from 100% cotton so it will be cool even on the stickiest days. The ecru colour tones beautifully with a hint of tan, plus it layers beautifully over skinny jeans. Put simply, it’s a great all-rounder.
