Marianne’s shopping picks
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.Birkenstock 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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
