Have you met Claire? Claire is our kind of gal ... she loves a little bit of home styling, fashion, food, exercise and, most of all, kindness. So we asked Claire what she'll wear this Summer and for her style picks from the latest Foxwood range.


Hey there, lovelies; I'm Claire! Comfort meets style is what I go for each time I dress. If I am comfortable, I am confident!


Years ago, I would follow trends that I'd researched and swooned over in glossy magazines (before social media days!). Then, regardless of whether they suited my body shape or style, I'd wear them! Nowadays, there is social media (haha), but I'm also far better at dressing for my body type, making decisions, and staying true to my personal style.


I am a casual type of girl, and you will often see me in activewear or comfy basics because, why not? I had yet to find a brand that embodied my casual but stylish vibe? Then .... enter Foxwood Clothing! Finally, I've found one of my favourite brands. The Foxwood design team have researched their potential buyers and created a niche line of products catering to women 30+. Many designs offer a longer length in shorts, skirts, sleeves and flattering cuts to suit numerous body shapes. The pieces from Foxwood collections are well thought out and match back with previous seasonal garments. You can sustainably add required pieces to your wardrobe that will stay there for many years. I really love that Foxwood incorporates casual and comfortable with style in mind.


I am excited that the love is mutual, that Foxwood asked me to curate a collection of pieces I will be wearing this Summer, and that they've given me this opportunity to share it with you!


I have gone for various interchangeable items that will give you plenty of options without adding too many pieces to your wardrobe.


To start with, everyone needs a staple white tank, and the Esme Tank is just that. This tank top will be the basis of many Summer outfits, a classic contoured fit, 100% cotton, fresh and fitting. It can be worn as a casual tank by itself or layered underneath shirts and jackets when the weather is cooler.


Next up, an everyday Summer essential, a great fitting and super comfortable pair of denim shorts. The Amble Short has the perfect stretch and relaxed fit for any activity. Its longer mid-thigh length appeals to me as I like my shorts to cover up a little more than some of the teeny tiny denim pairs I see younger girls wearing.


Every wardrobe needs an LBD. A little black dress will take you anywhere with a simple change of accessory in my mind. So my obvious pick in the Foxwood Summer collection was the Melody Dress. I love the elasticated straps that are wide enough to hide your bra straps and the pretty paper bag-style ruffles along the chest and skirt; they make this dress fun and just the right amount of flirty.


There's something in a Melody because the Foxwood Melody Shirt in crisp 100% cotton poplin is a classic that you'll wear repeatedly. The shirt has a classic collar, curved hem and slight drop shoulder to give a relaxed yet stylish sleeveless look, and I'm definitely wearing this for both work and play.


If you know me, you know I love denim, so whilst I'll wear the Amble Denim shorts for the beach, and beyond, I'll interchange them (read when they're in the wash) with an equally comfortable and cute denim skirt. A touch of raw edging on the Belle Skirt and an effortless A-Line fit meant this was a must-have on my versatile Summer shopping list.


Now we've ticked off staple, it's time to up my game and get a pop of fresh colour to really bring the season to life. So I'm adding the Bess Top & Skirt. So pretty. Playful, and the colours transport me somewhere we'd all rather be. So tropical and lush, the pattern on these Bess pieces oozes Summer fun. You'll find me sitting on my bar stool looking pretty in this twin set, or I'll match it back with my denim or whites for a fresh, colourful look.


Finally, if you're anything like me, there are 101 social engagements one is expected to attend over the next few months, which I'll need to dress up a little for. I literally did back-flips over this next outfit because it is a stunning evening outfit, and its soft luxe linen fabric makes it versatility ++ for wearing as separates when the festive season concludes! The Brea Top and Skirt.


So that's a wrap, or at least my Summer wardrobe essentials all wrapped up and under the Christmas Tree, ready to be worn on high rotation. I have no doubt you, too, will love the versatility and style that Foxwood brings to their relaxed and effortless-fitting clothing, so I've teamed up with Foxwood to bring 
Claire's Capsule Competition! 

Enter to win my essential summer wardrobe!
