Know the ropes when you’re on the beach

Get a spring in your step with these sustainable shoes (Picture:

Sneakers meet espadrilles? Now there’s a mash-up we can get behind and luckily Superga has created the comfy beach shoe we’ve all been imagining, with its 2790 rope flatform.


Make a wise move

The perfect statement bracelet (Picture:

Pearls are traditionally said to bring wisdom and knowledge — Missoma’s Summer of Self-Expression collection has cleverly updated them with a modern edge that still feels luxurious but bold and cool, too.

We love the white baroque pearl beaded T-bar bracelet, £179, and necklace, £325.

Love coffee but hate the jitters? Thank you 8pm Coffee for creating a decaffeinated brew that tastes authentic — using the finest fair-trade single-origin espresso from Peru — but won’t increase your heart rate, raise your blood pressure or increase your anxiety.

From £7.95,

New Aussie label Alémais is a sustainable, ethically minded womenswear range with a grown-up, romantic and eclectic feel. The second collection, inspired by the ocean, has just launched and includes seashell prints, a floaty yellow maxi dress and a ruffled pink cut-out sun dress that has us dreaming of Ibiza.

Atlantis skirt dress, £340,

Skateboard with bottle

We are huge fans of sustainable skate brand Globe. Its new Big Blazer 32in deck is made from recycled coconut and bamboo and even has a built-in bottle-opener.
