Bring on the next batch of cool pics and blurry exclusives! Plus, GreyCatte turns cowgirl to celebrate her birthday on the last day of Leo before summer wraps up...

Most of these outfits get you ready for literally anything you are faced with in the city, from writing through running errands to meeting friends - well, the rest will do for rolling in the mud. Apart from a few extreme Friday dress-downs, this is where you shamelessly road-test trends, revel in a blogger's paradise, or make things really simple and casual, with a view to pretending to be smart if needed. Easy or intricate, shocking or cute, it's in this batch where you have the most fun exploring things for yourself.

While I have included both published funnies and exclusive blurries, I mean outfit snaps taken in the summer, there's nothing like following streams live on Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter.

White, monochrome, logos, spots, check print, vintage styles and all things denim are having such a moment you cannot simply ignore them. All the world is a catwalk - take your turn.
