With the temperature soaring, this week we are discussing summer looks to keep you cool and comfortable. We asked Le-Ann, one of our Millers ambassadors, to tell us her favourite styles for summer.
Q: With summer just around the corner, we can almost taste the ice cream! Do you and Jan have any summer traditions that you do every year?
L: I will normally visit Jan in Brisbane, take the train into the city and down to South Bank. First stop we would go and see an art gallery, then have a coffee break in a nice café and then it’s time to hit the shops! Got to love city shopping!
Q: What would be your go-to summer outfit?
L: I love to combine style and comfort with a detailed sleeve or neckline! So I would be wearing light fabric, probably a dress, with some simple accessories and sandals.
Q: What would be your go-to summer accessories?
L: Although anyone who knows me well, will say how much I love costume jewellery! My go-to everyday accessories would be my silver hoop earrings – they just go with everything.

Q: What is your favourite swimwear style to wear and why?
L: Well I recently brought a halter-neck swimsuit and when I wear it, I feel so free and ready for the waves – I love it! I also love tankinis, I find them really comfortable and I love the fact they come in so many gorgeous designs and colours. I tend to go for block colours, anything navy or black. I may even try to mix up my beach wear this summer with florals and nauticals!
Q: Where is your favourite beach to visit in the summer?
L: I’m so fortunate to live right near some beautiful beaches and rivers. My favourite would have to be Mudjimba Beach! It’s a special place that Jan and I always walk along in the summer, chatting about all the latest goings on in our lives and just enjoying each others company.
Q: If we spotted you at the beach, what would we finding you wearing?
L: A block colour tankini or one piece, and a pink or orange kaftan (beautiful summer colours) – definitely no shoes. Oh and I’d definitely have my floppy hat and oversized sunnies to make me feel glamorous!
Q: What are your essential beach bag items?
L: I just love those straw beach bags, so I’d definitely have one of those. I’d also pack my sun cream, big floppy hat and I am just loving the round beach towels at the moment – and I’m ready to go.
Q: We’ve heard you love to cook, do you have a favourite summer recipe you’d like to share with us?
L: Actually my favourite recipe is for entertaining doesn’t involve any cooking…
Q: What cocktail would you be most likely sipping on by the pool?
L: I’m more into mocktails…especially any with watermelon in! But if I had to choose…I’d go for an ice cold glass of beautiful champagne or baileys poured over cracked ice.
