top up the tan

Good morning! Hope you all had lovely weekends. I’m back from the fabulous wedding (congrats to Mark and Suzanne – enjoy Borneo!), and I have to say that it included two of the best details I’ve ever seen at a wedding; one of the readings was 500 Miles by The Proclaimers (think of the words… so perfect for the occasion) and after the ceremony the newlyweds walked back up the aisle to this song. An inspired choice.

Now, I’ve been a fan of tan accessories ever since my beloved Mulberry Bayswater came into my life. The shade goes with everything, especially teamed with neutral colours, and has the power to smarten up otherwise casual outfits. The high street is currently awash with tan bags, shoes and belts, and even if you load up on all three at once you still don’t run the risk of looking too matchy-matchy – as Lauren Conrad demonstrates below. Olivia Palermo is also partial to making a statement with tan accessories, from the giant Zara shopper to one of her many Birkins. How about you? Will you be getting tan this summer?
