Like Laura Ashley, Hobbs is one of those places that I really can't afford to shop at but I still do. The thing is, their clothes and shoes are so well made that they are worth spending a bit more on and also the designs and the attention to detail really are something else. Although I'm not snobby about brands, I do think it is always worth getting the highest quality you can afford along with only buying clothes that you really love and Hobbs fits both those criteria! I bought this top in the sale before Christmas and have been waiting for the weather to warm up so I can wear it properly. Although it is sleeveless, the higher neckline means that I can wear it to work and keep cool without flashing too much flesh, always a winner!

I absolutely fell in love with the print on this top when I saw it (unfortunately the top isn't available but this rather lovely dress is instead) and I knew that it would be so versatile as I own a lot of clothes in red, blue and yellow. It is quite a loose fit for me but it looks equally nice tucked in as it does untucked, over some skinny jeans or slim-fit trousers...
I think pencil skirts can be super flattering if you have a figure similar to mine as they tend to skim my wobbly bits quite nicely and the stretchiness helps to fit my odd measurements, I told you that there was quite a substantial difference between my waist and hips!

What do you wear to keep cool in the heat? Which brands do you love?
