Step into Summer with these Fashion Fixes!

Ad {gifted}. The weather has been very changeable lately hasn't it! Nothing like compared to last year when we were in the middle of a heat wave, crazy or what! That been said I cannot wait for our family Summer holiday in the South of France and I have to admit I'm already starting to buy a few little bits here and there, I just love being organised and shopping for holiday clothes. I've been working with Fashion World and Jacamo recently so I have been able to add a few more items to mine and my husbands holiday wardrobe. A little bit about Fashion World - a trading style of JD Williams & Company Ltd one of the UK's leading direct home shopping companies, offering a large selection of clothes all items are designed to flatter and fit but at good value. Jacamo prides itself on providing a wide variety of clothes and aims to appeal to any man regardless of size, aims for good value while offering top quality items.

Now, I'm not very good at having 'capsule' outfits, my husband however is definitely a shorts and t-shirt guy or chinos and smart shirt where as I tend to stick to a similar style when on holiday and layer up which I always find handy as although the weather in the Dordogne is generally wonderful there is the chance of thunderstorms which can turn the weather a little chilly at times, not very often it happens but best to be prepared! Here is a selection of items that I chose and hopefully I'll be getting alot of use out of them when the weather sorts itself out and the sun starts shining. So here are a selection of items we have been trying out and getting ready to step into Summer!


First up are these gorgeous magenta cork flip flops by Superdry (RRP £18.00), anyone who knows me will tell you that I pretty much live in flip flops, as soon as the weather shows signs of Spring/Summer they are on! I have tons of flip flops and they are without a doubt one of my wardrobe staples and I couldn't live without them. I loved these ones as they are a little different with the cork sole and will be great around the pool side!


Vest tops, you can never have too many....now I am a bit picky with vest tops as they need to be long line, I can't stand having short ones they really need to be a decent length. I tend to layer these and wear under shirts or tops as needed, these two come as a twin pack (RRP £15.00) and are so soft and comfortable, these would be really good to travel in whether flying or driving. 


I then chose these wonderful striped shorts (RRP £18.00), I actually hadn't worn shorts for many years, I just couldn't find any that I liked until I decided the slightly longer length were great because they are good to wear both during the day and can be style up a bit for evening wear. These linen shorts are perfect for just that, ideal for city tripping and then adding a fancy pair of flip flops/heels and a floaty top and blazer and you've got a great little evening outfit.


Floaty tops are another one of my favourite type of Summer top, much nicer to not have a load of fabric cling to you in 30+degree heat and these cami style tops (RRP £20.00) are great. I love the wooden button detailing on this top and again has a long line style which is great for bigger busted ladies as they hang better. I also really like the pink stripe design of this top, this will be ideal for Summer days in sunny Sarlat, Dordogne. 





There were a couple of other items that I chose including a white cotton sleeveless shirt (RRP £18.00) which is really long! Much longer than I was expecting but lovely and again perfect for hot days but also would look great teamed with some black leggings. I also had a rather nice  heart midi dress (RRP £39.00) with angel sleeves and flattering design this is a very pretty dress. I have to confess I forgot to take pictures of these but you can see them online. I can't want to wear them!

My husband chose these Superdry shorts (RRP £20.00) which are so nice, they are like a sports short so perfect if your chap is a bit more active or he wants something a little less formal and more of a relaxed fit. He thinks these are great and the fit is spot on. There are a wide variety of shorts available on Jacamo, there really is something for everyone. 


He then chose this classic Ben Sherman polo shirt (RRP £48.00 although is now on sale for £31.00) I think polo shirts can look so nice as part of an outfit, my husband has his 'good' polo shirts and 'work' polo shirts so he has a variety. This Ben Sherman top is such good quality and the fit is a slim fit but looks lovely on, my husband was very pleased with it! Perfect item for holidays!





Overall I have been very impressed with the quality of all of the items, especially for the cost which is very reasonable. Head on over and check out the huge variety of clothes available, there is something for everyone.
