Morning ladies & happy Wednesday.  It's hard to believe that another month has whizzed by so quickly!  The good news is that it means there's been a new drop of stunning pieces from Baukjen for SS21 & as like always, this latest collection doesn't disappoint with lots of timeless stylish pieces to get us itching to 'click the button'.

So let's jump straight in with the above gorgeous knit, that instantly caught my attention due to the off shoulder detailing.  This kind of jumper is perfect for adding a touch of effortless glamour to the simplest of looks & looks incredibly stylish when paired with jeans, such as these cropped straight legged jeans, a Panama hat & some flat sandals.

Likewise the above off the shoulder top would be perfect for creating a sleek & sexy silhouette when teamed with a skirt.  So for example, wear with this midi skirt, a pair of wedge espadrille sandals that tie at the ankle & team with this bag for an effortless summer look that would be perfect for meeting friends for a coffee/meal.

One of the questions I always get asked a lot is how to style separates.  For example some of my clients love the idea of maxi skirts but don't know how to wear them in a way that looks pulled together.  For me tops like the above knitted vest top are perfect for this problem.  Invest in a few neutral understated tops like the above one for pairing with skirts/cigarette pants/shorts & then to bring the look together add a belt, such as this one to tie the look together, as well as add a little definition to the waist.  Alternatively this type of top is also perfect for wearing with a simple pair of shorts, such as these khaki hemp shorts & then finish the look off with a timeless straw summer hat, such as a panama & flat leather strap sandals.

If like me you love the effortless summer style that always looks laidback but timeless, in a non-trying way then you need at least one white shirt hanging in your wardrobe.  I personally love this style shirt worn a little oversized & teamed with a either a pair of denim shorts or jeans, such as these boyfriend jeans, which are the most perfect shade of denim for summer.

Of course stripes are always a good idea & a classic short sleeve, crew neck t-shirt is perfect for dressing up or down.  Style with a classic navy blazer & cropped cigarette pants for days at the office & wear of a weekend with shorts, such as these linen blend shorts.

There probably aren't many of us that go a week without wearing denim in some capacity & as temperatures start to rise a pair of denim shorts make a great cooler alternative to our ever faithful jeans.  Last year I lived in my denim shorts & wore them both dressed up & down.  On cooler days style with an oversized white shirt, like the one featured above & on sunny days pair with something a little cooler & perhaps dressier such as this strapless top.  Then finish the look off with a panama hat & leather flats for effortless summer style.

A timeless summer wardrobe needs at least one pair of cooler, lightweight trousers that are ideal for teaming with classic additions.  I just love the above cropped linen pair that would prove a great wardrobe addition.  The colour has a real European feel to it & would look so stylish teamed with a simple sleeveless top, such as this knitted tank top, accessorised with gold jewellery, a sun hat & basket.

my midlife fashion, baukjen Aoife dress

There's no better time to indulge in some swishing than when the sun is shining & dresses make getting dressed of a morning so quick & easy.  The above tiered maxi with bow strap detailing is a style I love & can so easily be dressed up or down.  Pair with trainers & a casual jacket, such as this denim jacket for everyday life & then dress up with some ankle tie espadrille wedge sandals & layered jewellery for holiday or a night out. Accessorised with either a simple crew neck cardigan or pashmina for when temperatures dip.

Then for cooler days the above tiered long sleeve dress is perfect.  Again it can easily be styled with an extra layer if needed, such as this longline cardigan.

Finally what summer outfit is complete without the addition of a timeless straw bag.  Perfect for holding all those everyday essentials as much as it is used as a travel or beach bag.

I've been very lucky as Baukjen have been very kind & let me choose as few pieces to showcase & style, which is never an easy decision trying to narrow down all my favourite picks.  But in the end I decided to pick the following.

Jumper - Baukjen * - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15
Dress - Baukjen * - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Firstly their Aoife Dress, as I just know this will get a lot of wear over the coming months.  Plus it has ever useful concealed pockets & is made from the most lovely & lightweight fabric that's ideal for when temperatures start to rise.  Not to mention the design is incredibly flattering & forgiving on all those lumps & bumps.  In terms of sizing I'm wearing the S, which is perfect for a UK 8-10.

My other picks just had to include their Eddi Recycled Cotton Jumper, which just so happens to also be perfect for pairing with my new Aoife dress!  As I've said numerous times before on the blog I love off the shoulder tops & find them so easy & flattering to wear.  I plan on teaming mine with straight legged white jeans, a simple off white maxi skirt, as well as cropped pale blue skinny jeans & of course with my new denim shorts.

In terms of sizing I'm wearing an 8 in both the jumper & the shorts.  For me the denim shorts are perfect as they have the slightly looser boyfriend fit that always looks on trend & can either be worn with the finished hem worn down for a slightly dressier feel or rolled up for a more casual look & will literally go with all the tops hanging in your wardrobe.  Expect to see me wearing these a lot over the coming months as temperatures start to rise here in France - you have been warned!
