Roo's Summer 18 Lookbook Must Haves
When I was asked to choose my top picks from the Summer Lookbook I thought it would be easy – well it was really easy as I wanted to pick everything which rarely happens – I mean we always buy items that we think fit into the Roo’s Beach style and remit however not all of them are things I’d necessarily buy myself, we have a broad customer range and not everyone wants to wear the same as me! However with this Lookbook I really can honestly say that I LOVE it all and am seriously struggling with not having one of everything – I’m trying to limit myself to one or two items a week and then if they’re sold out then I’ll just have to go without - so here is my first months worth of favourite pieces!
Wildfox Tropicalia Hibiscus Print Sweater
Difficult to choose between these total beauties from Wildfox, they also sit so perfectly together on the cover modelled by the very beautiful Rosie and Sylvia, however I have chosen and I’ve gone floral, mainly because I’m slightly obsessed with Hibiscus flowers and the colours in this print just scream SUMMER. This is just perfect for throwing on when the Cornish sea mist rolls in and I can still pretend I’m in Hawaii!
Free People Forties Feel Ivory Bodysuit
Such a stunning print and an ingenious design, it has a built in lace body so it stays perfectly in place and then blousons over your jeans or what ever you’re wearing it with. Super sexy and can be dressed up or down, worn with a bikini top, a lace bandeau or if you’re not feeling so brave a smple vest will look great under it - I think black but then you could pick out one of the colours or go nude - I just love the sleeves and it’s SO feminine.
Free People Bali Wildflower Black Trouser Pant
Another stunning item from Free People, these are just a dream, so floaty and comfortable, fabulous print with a great boho feel about them, just waft about in these, team with a simple black top and you’ll struggle to go back into denim.
Free People Daisy Jane Ivory Bomber Jacket
This is almost my favourite and I’m trying hard to resist it due to the fact that I have a whole wardrobe of coats and jackets and yet this delivers something so Summery, pretty and on trend that I think I really need it. Once again the styling is spot on, it sits perfectly oversized and the correct weight for it to just hang beautifully. I think you could wear it with ripped denim and a simple vest or really dress it up for a Summer wedding.
Birkenstock Arizona Rose Suede Sandals
My favourite summer shoes are the Birkenstock Arizona, so simple, so comfortable and just perfect for Cornish living, these pale pink suede ones are a dream - thank you Birkenstock!
Soi 55 Lolita Dolce Woven Plastic Beach Bag
Soi 55 have been working with Mexican artisan weavers to design and make these stunning bags, made out of recycled plastic and hand woven, they are a true work of art and we’re really excited to be able to include them into out Summer collection. I am in love with this colour combination of pink and yellow - so positive and happy and will make me smile everyday.
Veja V-10 Gold Leather Trainers
Gold trainers - what’s not to be totally obsessed with?
Levi's 501 Back To Your Heart Blue Denim Shorts
Having tried many shorts over the years, I still think Levi’s make the best, I buy them two sizes bigger than my jeans so that they sit low on my hips and therefore don’t cling to my thighs – obviously Sylvia doesn’t have this issue so she was wearing a little size 26”. They just get better and better with each wear and mould into a wardrobe staple.
