Summer Wish List ...

Written by Published in Fashion

With temperatures rising here in the UK and many more of us getting ready for our much anticipated annual holiday abroad, what could be better than a little bit of inspiration to help us get into the summer mood...or should that be mode? We’ve picked some of our most desired eco conscious items that help keeping ethically cool in the soaring heat easy as select, pay, post



Whilst bikinis, flip flops and sunglasses might be at the top of your vacation priority list, we think there are a few crucial pieces that make every aspect of summer a breeze. This seriously gorgeous Annie Greenabelle brown slouch jumper is perfect for plane, pool and beach alike. Light enough to throw into your beach or travel bag, the neutral colour makes matching it an absolute cinch. Fabulously versatile, it can be worn with shorts or as a cover up and is essential for when that British weather inevitably returns to grey.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be putting comfort before all else during these hot and humid days. Thankfully that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your fashion forward prowess, as vegan shoe brand Melissa has an array of summer styles to suit many tastes and trends. These colour block t-bar flats immediately caught our eye and are a brilliant accompaniment to dresses, skirts, shorts and slacks. Luckily for us Londoners and anyone else visiting the capital for the upcoming Olympics, Melissa have opened a pop up shop in Covent Garden – just in time to qualm those summer sandal fears.

No summer is complete, of course, without a one stop slouchy bag thatalt can go from day to night in a pinch. We’ve been coveting this Melie Bianco Sienna Duffle Bag for far too long and there’s no better time to buy it now that it’s on sale at one of our favourite eco-friendly fashion sites Fashion Conscience. 100% vegan, this Aztec inspired shoulder bag is just the right size, shape and style to make whatever outfit you’re wearing that bit more hip.
