My summer style

I am so over the heat here in Sydney, I crave the crisp cold weather in Europe. The problem is mainly because of not knowing what to wear with this weather.

While cleaning my wardrobe, I realize that I am not that big on boho-chic style for summer nor am I into sundresses or even maxi dresses. When I look online for summer dressing inspiration, a person that comes to mind is Jane Birkin. I am a t-shirt and jeans girl like Jane but sadly, jeans are not even possible with this heat.

To suit my style, I prefer darker colours like grey or black tanks and tees unlike Jane who is so ethereal and perfect in white. My favourite brand for good quality tees and tanks are by T by Alexander Wang.

I replace jeans with denim skirt (always from Topshop), lightweight chiffon skirt like this one from ASOS.

For the weekend, it would usually be denim shorts (again, from Topshop). To look like I put a little more effort, I would wear a black broderie top either from Zara or Country Road, or a black silk jumpsuit (my favourite one is from Topshop), lightweight dresses from COS and Muji.

Having said that, I can't wait for autumn/winter where I can repeat wear my knits and jackets however I want.
