Marianne’s shopping picks

Acne Studios Mesh Sneakers, €340

I’ve lived in my all-white Acne Studios mesh sneakers all winter and I’m in love with this new colourway. It’s the perfect update to your go-to jeans and t-shirt look.blankBirkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed in Faded Khaki, €90

I bring my Birkenstocks out every year without fail, and this particular colour will go with everything in your wardrobe.

Zara Open Knit Cardigan, €25.95

I can not get enough of this knit cardigan! I would team this with boyfriend jeans, an off-white vest and the Birkenstock’s above for a casual springtime look.

blank

COS Satin Slip Dress, €79

We all know I love a minimal dress. This satin slip ticks all the right boxes. I can imagine this styled down with The Row style sandals and an oversized slouchy bag. Perfect for that summer bbq!

Envelope1976 Gala Coat, €700

High on my wish list is this stunning wool coat. Its thin fabric makes it a perfect transitional piece moving into the warmer months. Perfect for those outdoor plans we have coming up!

Previous shopping picks

Zara Long Knit Skirt, €29.95

What better way to transition into spring/ summer than with a knit midi skirt? I would pair this skirt with a loose grey T-shirt tucked in at the front, black sandals and an oversized bag to create that effortless thrown together look.

Nanushka Jen Knotted Pleated Vegan Leather Tote, €295

Following on with the cream theme, I’m already planning my date night outfits. This Nanushka bag is first on my wishlist! It is a sculptural dream. With its deep pleats and sharp edges, it’s the hero piece of any outfit.

Ancient Greek Sandals Desmos Cutout Leather Slides, €160

Ancient Greek Sandals have been my forever go-to for the days I fancy a change from my everyday chunky sandals. These are a slight nod to the Hermes Oran, only a little more purse-friendly.

Agolde 90s Mid-rise Faded Straight-Leg Jeans, €265

No wardrobe should be without a straight fit, mid rise boyfriend jean. Dress up or dress down they honestly look great with everything! To me they really are the jeans of the summer.

Arket Oversized Linen Shirt, €79

We all know I love a linen shirt for summer! I just recently purchased this blue linen beauty. I can’t wait to style it loose over a white tank and jeans. It would also look great thrown over a swimsuit as a poolside cover-up.
