It occurred to me recently that I've shown you this top in both a wishlist post and a favourites post, but not actually styled it up for a proper outfit post before. Given that I love it so much, I thought it was about time I put that right! It's the Topshop Structured Bardot, and you've probably seen it all over the internet by now.
There's a good reason for this. It's beautifully designed, feminine, made from gorgeous silky fabric and available in a rainbow of tempting colours. I've mostly been wearing mine with skinny jeans and heels for evenings out, but it works really well styled more casually too. Everything I'm wearing here is from Topshop, but other than the top, it's all old. The button through skirt has proved very useful - great in winter with over the knee boots and a striped polo neck, and equally good with bare legs and sandals now it's warmer.

For me, a denim mini and flat sandals is pretty much a summer uniform, something I turn to year after year. The bardot top brings it right up to date. On holiday, this is essentially what I wear on a daily basis!
Have you embraced the off the shoulder trend? And what's your summer uniform?
