With the shops filling up with summer fashion and the odd, warm summery day my thoughts turn to holidays, long days at the beach and drives down the coast scouting out good seaside restaurants. Maybe I should ditch the car in favour of this very chic looking scooter - but I'm not sure of my Vespa skills after a leisurely lunch and a class or two of wine! Stripes are always the perfect summer basic and I'm loving this whole 'Riveria look' - you can never go wrong with blue and white. I also love stripes around the house to freshen things up and it gives a beach house a subtle nautical twist without being over the top. Ticking is an all time favourite classic and looks great mixed in with some bolder stripes.
