Attention fashionistas! We’ve teamed up with super chic boutique Magpie & Fox to provide you with the ultimate shopping experience (vouchers to spend at the boutique combined with a break at yours truly) and we’ve asked M&F owner Amber to share her top pieces for the summer – here’s our style sneak peek!
Over to you, Amber…
One of the best looks in Cornwall is minimalist weekend chic. Whether it’s for a weekend break or simply for the locals, this look has a functional nod towards the Spring/Summer 2016 catwalk trends with the perfect combination of laid back and luxe by bringing in the perfect accessories!
First up, the back pack! The back pack is huge for SS16 and we have rejoiced as the humble back pack has been given a makeover by Markberg with its perforated detail giving it a sports luxe look. It is made in the softest leather and is not only stylish but functional which is something we look for when we do our buying at Magpie & Fox. It leaves hands free to take pictures or read maps whilst on holiday £199
LA company Rails are famed for their beautiful soft shirts with feminine silhouettes which can be tricky to achieve, the Charli Stripe shirt is a soft linen stripe shirt that can be worn in a variety of ways- over a bikini or with jeans & shorts and will always remain timeless (one of our favourites!) £140
Twist & Tango Sid Ankle Jeans are Magpie & Fox’s number 1 jean! These jeans cause a real stir in the boutique (once you try them you will see why!) One of the biggest wardrobe staples is a nice pair of jeans that you can dress up or down – these have the most flattering fit! £89
Long earrings featured heavily on the SS16 catwalks and are probably one of the easiest style updates to try this season. Our pick from Magpie & Fox is Wanderlust Life travel inspired Waterfall Earrings. The stylish gold with the pretty iridescent crystal can change your look from day to night in an instant or simply provide a bit of poolside glamour combined with a pretty kimono! £40
Hudson’s Willow Shoe is a brilliant white soft leather style which is contemporary and minimalist. Wear them with our rolled boyfriend jeans or skinnies for spring vibes and comfy toes! This is our go-to ‘looks good with everything’ footwear £140.00
Finally, you can’t go wrong with an Olivia Burton Black and Silver watch. As Olivia Burton themselves say, ‘a statement watch is every fashionistas secret weapon.’ This monochrome watch will complete your outfit and truly is timeless! £80

Wow, thanks Amber! We are so excited about the Spring trends and even more excited about our boutique shopping break. If you’re looking to escape to Cornwall this summer and would like to visit the local independent boutiques, make Magpie & Fox your first stop! We are totally in love with those drop earrings and think they would make the perfect accessory for a night out in Truro – cocktail anyone?
