It may not look it from these photos, but when shooting this post in Menorca Monica and I were tackling the most extreme winds. The weather was so violent that I had to ditch my straw fedora in favour of a top-knot, and Monica’s maxi skirt was blowing behind her like a sail in choppy waters. So in hindsight I can see that this probably wasn’t the best choice of attire. But when you’re on holiday you want to wear absolutely everything in your summer wardrobe – no matter what obstacles stand in the way.
The quilted floral bomber jacket from Boden is one of my favourite SS15 pieces, as it’s the perfect stepping stone from leather bikers to bare arms. In Menorca I paired it with a Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply dress (which did not fare well against the wind), River Island espadrilles and a simple Zara tote. Take a look…
I’m visiting Saint-Tropez with Glossybox for the first time later this month, and will be taking the Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply dress with me to wear onboard our private yacht (yes, we will be living like Beyoncé). It’s the perfect summer dress and I want to get as much wear out of it as I can this season. So let’s just hope it’s smooth sailing in the French Riviera, because I don’t want another knicker-flashing incident.
Do you rate this look? How would you style the Boden floral bomber jacket?
