If you think you are going to get through Summer without a raincoat you are sadly mistaken. Summer so far has been a complete wash out, torrential rain, hail and thunderstorms have been frequent in the UK of late. The Fashion Saint may not have any say over the forecast but I have got your back when it comes to style in the rain this summer. It's too warm (I use this term loosely) for a coat and leather jackets are not going to cut it in the rain unless you want to smell like a cow. I have been so sick of thinking of what to wear and ending up in attire that could be considered as an Autumn/Winter wear, that I have resorted to purchasing a raincoat. Who knew plastic could be so fantastic? The shops are clearly cashing in on this unfortunate weather and why the hell not, they know us style conscious women, do not want to look like a drowned rat. Whilst scouring the shops both on and offline, I found a few raincoats that you might want to consider investing in, after all it rains in the UK all of the time and a brolly is just not enough. A raincoat is definitely looking like an essential item ladies.

Passport.... check....sun cream.... check....swimwear.... hang about... you're not ready yet. Ladies, unless you have checked out the Kendall and Kylie swimwear collection at Topshop, do not get on that plane. These two influential young ladies have gone and done it again and are fast on their way to becoming mini moguls. They are currently taking over Topshop with their new line in swimwear. The collection consists of cut outs, active wear and printed swimsuits and bikini's for a gold star in style and trends.
Coconut Lane London is a fairly new online boutique established in 2015. They boast affordable and gorgeous; accessories, home-wear gifts, stationery and jewellery. It's the epitome of #bloggerstyle. Coconut Lane has some really sassy products, which are definitely a pick me up for the weather right now. I'm loving this Tropicana trend, that is all about summer details, such as Flamingo's Pineapples, Mermaids and Unicorns.
Happy Happy Birthday to Marilyn Monroe who would have been 90 today. How better to celebrate this fashion icon's birthday, than to show you how to steal her style with a pleated skirt.
