I don't mind making an effort when it comes to my workday wardrobe, but on the weekend, I'd rather have a few trusty, good-looking combinations I can fling on in a hurry. No one wants to be the eternally late person to brunch when everyone else is hanging and in desperate need of avocado. So rather than chopping and changing my look every week/month/year as I used to in my 20s, I'd much rather gather a solid lineup of comfortable, easy pieces that work harmoniously together and in a few different formulas.
Although summer hasn't hit yet, there have been a few wildly warm moments that have meant planning what I'll wear from June onwards doesn't seem so crazy. Thanks to Instagram, I can see that a few women are aligned to my way of thinking already. Anyone would believe it's 30º Celsius out in the UK right now, according to the influx of cute summer dresses on the feed. So to save you time, hassle and money (in the long run), I've come up with three summer-weekend outfit formulas that actually work quite well in spring (with a layering trick or shoe change) and are classic enough to see you through many hot seasons to come.

1. VOLUMINOUS FLORAL DRESS + STRAPPY SANDALS
2. BLUE JEANS + WHITE TOP
3. BLAZER + MIDI SKIRT
