Nothing beats a European summer… NOTHING, and this year is no different. In May I am off on my first spring/summer trip to Tuscany, one of my favourite places in the world, and this is what I’m taking with me!

A straw tote bag is timeless, they are one of my favourite summer accessories and I use them until I can use them no more!
This spring &otherstories has brought out their beautiful Large Woven Straw Tote Bag, a must have for any trip to a farmers market!
Panelled Dress With Embroidery
A long summer dress with a straight neckline and wide straps and beautiful, warm, contrast embroidery details. The smocked fabric gives lots of flexibility in use and definitely means you will have enough air in the height of summer!
