I’m thrilled to have introduced Mistamina’s second collection, introducing the first hero piece – the Fonzie jumper, which comes in a soft pink and features neutral shoulder and elbow patches. Named after one of out beloved family dogs, this jumper is as beautiful as Fonzie and is the perfect summer cover up for Action Girls.

June’s Action Girl is Maddie Chesterton, owner and founder of luxury fashion and lifestyle boutique Baar & Bass. Here we get to know a bit more about Maddie through a round of quickfire questions, and hear her tips for summer styling.

Diet coke, chicken zinger tower burger and I’d swap the chocolate bar for a bag of squares!

Summer styling tips

The British summer demands versatile clothing, during what can only be described as an unpredictable season weather wise, layering is key.

Essential layering pieces include shirts and jumpers which can be worn over floaty floral dresses or jean shorts.

The jumper collection by Mistamina is ideal for layering with a crew neck, and quirky contrasting elbow and shoulder patches.
