Long weekends are the best weekends

I hope you enjoyed the recent bank holiday weekend and managed to squeeze in some ‘me-time’ as my Mum calls it. I certainly made the most of mine and given we were blessed with some lovely sunny days just before Easter I decided to do the seasonal wardrobe sort out.

I always find when you start to sort clothes out it’s like a trip down memory lane….that DKNY dress I bought back in the day; a sarong that still smells of the beach, my go to black leather jacket always guaranteed to smarten me up, despite the fact it’s been worn so many times, it’s still one of my favourites.

As we move into summer it’s an opportunity (for me anyway) to wear some colour so I started to think about some colour themes and began to realise how many outfit combinations I could come up with, it was very exciting. One advantage of getting older is knowing what suits you, so editing down my wardrobe into key styles is much easier. Here’s my pick of Hope’s colour themes to give you endless outfit opportunities!

  2. Foundation Vest  - Navy, £55
  3. The Ramie Vee Neck Cocoon Top - Chalk, £75
  4. Foundation 3/4 Sleeve Scoop Top - Navy, £65
  5. The Cotton Stretch Ankle Grazer - Chalk, £110
  6. The Ramie Vee Neck Cocoon Top - Aqua, £75
  7. Foundation Leggings - Navy, £55

  7. The Silk pop on Top - Sunset, £150
  8. Foundation Tube Skirt - Navy, £55

I’ve selected 3 colour themes but you could easily mix them and wear them differently, eg try the coral with grey or the neutrals with the navy, it really is up to you, you wear it how you like it!

As a customer said to me just this week, ‘what I love about Hope is that I can wake up, get dressed without having to think too hard about what goes with what, it all works together”. Brilliant endorsement and Thank You Kathryn!

  • I love the coral silk trapeze panel dress. Please could you do it in another colour combination.


    • Morning Trisha, thank you for telling us you love the silk trapeze dress, it is such a flattering shape and colour. We are planning to do a second shape, a cocoon in a fabulous cobalt blue washed silk fabric, should be on the website by the end of the month. Hope this helps, Nayna X
