Our Twiinfluencer Summer Picnic Edit
Whether we like it or not, this summer is all about picnics in the park and socially distanced drinks, so we decided to reach out to some of our fave influencers to see what they'll be wearing whilst they make the most of this summer we'll remember for years to come.
@belleandbuntyStylish sister duo Alice & Hannah (aka Belle and Bunty) are both fashion designers and Instagram influencers. With their extensive design knowledge it's no surprise their feed is filled with flattering and comfortable items that don't compromise on style.
It came as no surprise when they selected the Swells Dress, the white dress that would be the perfect addition to any wardrobe. With its scooped neckline, puffed sleeve and midi length this dress flatters every body type, we particularly love the corset style panelled bodice and the hint of period drama it evokes!

@poppyalmondFreelance illustrator Poppy absolutely nails a cool but quirky aesthetic effortlessly. From homeware, to beauty and fashion, her feed is a feast for the eyes.
We loved Poppy's picks which were unexpected yet perfectly fit into her summer wardrobe; inspiring us to look at more outfit combinations for our upcoming socially distanced days out. The Wave Bucket Hat by Boyish (much loved by the likes of Gigi Hadid) gives us serious 90s vibes whilst being super practical for long sunny days whilst Xirena's delicate, feminine Penelope Top contrasts in a sweetly shade of blush.

We love Grace for her refreshing take on body positivity for the lesser seen midsize range, not to mention her awesome take on feminine streetwear and perfect Instagram feed curation of blue, white and green.
The Carolina Dress might as well have been made for Grace. With its fresh paisley print, puffed long sleeves and mini length, Staud's 1960s inspired dress is perfect for summer days wherever you are - and a keeper for weddings and garden parties in years to come.

Former fashion buyer, now turned stylish-af-mum Debbie Lee (aka thefashionablepan) can always be relied on to nail an easy-breezy summer look. Whether she's dressed up or down we always find ourselves lusting over all of her picks.
Debbie picked the Charlotte Dress from Delfi Collective which was SUCH dreamy choice which she wore for a small get together she was hosting in her back garden - the new normal of get togethers with friends! With its full skirt, pleated bodice and dropped sleeves the Charlotte dress from LA brand Delfi Collective is a feast of green florals - a dress that feels both fresh and joyful.

@hollyannascarsellaFounder of Pampelone Clothing and one of Forbes 30 under 30 Holly is seriously inspiring in so many ways, with her wardrobe just being one of them. Currently pregnant, we loved to see Holly take one of our pieces and show it can be worn in so many stages of life, avoiding the need to purchase a whole new wardrobe for 9 months. The true meaning of #buylessbuybetter.
Holly wore the Tangier Dress which is a stunning piece cut from sustainable recycled tissue nylon. Staud's Tangier dress in zingy coral is a stand out piece with its full sleeve, drawstring cut out front and full skirt. The drawstring around the waist can be left looser for a more covered up look, or pulled tighter to reveal some skin. This drawstring allowed Holly to wear the dress comfortably over her bump, and will equally allow her to wear it for Summers to come.

@styleigniteIrish sisters Ruth and Jane (aka styleignite) provide a stream of inspo from iced lattes to stylish ensembles in their curated pastel feeds. We love their careful selection of items that won't tire quickly, reminding us not to over consume unnecessarily - something definitely needed for most whilst scrolling IG.
Seen here is the gorge Tokyo Tee by Cotton Citizen. Focusing on innovative dye effects, the brand's best selling Tokyo crop tee was reimagined for the season in this primrose yellow which just screams summer!

Bianca's feed just makes us smile! Co-host of the sustainability influenced podcast, Bianca uses her platform to help guide fashion-lovers through the minefield of sustainability and the steps we can all take to live a little greener.
Bianca didn't surprise us when she picked the incredible Elio Dress! With its off the shoulder sleeves, button through front and tiered skirt, it's one of this summer's most joyful of pieces and we cannot wait to wear it ourselves!
