Steamy temperatures call for light summer frocks, especially when you are spending the day outside in the sunshine. I’m taking in my daily Vitamin D while wearing this whimsical, crisp white and navy patterned dress, a little piece that caught my eye whilst window shopping.

If you’re wondering what makes this little shift the perfect summer dress, then I can provide you with it’s three pro’s!

  1. The lightweight cotton is extremely breathable and light, not to mention it feels soft against my skin.
  2. The relaxed neckline and tie back makes this style super comfortable to wear.
  3. The tie waist creates shape within this shift, making it a flattering style.

If you haven’t already, it’s about time you added a little white frock with some sort of variation to your wardrobe. Don’t forget to team it with some block heels and a cross body bag for that effortless yet chic vibe.

Happy January 1st! I’m starting the new year fresh with tropical vibes and a seriously cute pineapple print dress. Both fruity and fun, this little number is perfect for a summer soiree’s with the girls, or a cheeky beach romp with the beau. If you too would like to add some delicious pineapple print to your wardrobe, then check out this Tony Burch Long-sleeve Pineapple Dress,  Princess Polly Pineapple Party Set, or Nishe Pineapple Print Skater Dress.

I’m dressing down this fruity shift with a pair of block heels, as I’m a gal on the go with places to see. This monochrome Jo Mercer sandal is on constant rotation this summer, as I love their crisp white pebble texture and their unbelievable comfort. If you are looking to upgrade your staple footwear this year, then start with the Erin Sandal – you will not regret it!

Now for a smoothie xx

Ivory, Off White & Cream: Summer’s Colour Palette!

It doesn’t take a genius to spot that I have a bit of an obsession with neutrals at the moment, particularly within the “off white” category. With ivory, off white & cream outfits on high rotation, I’m finding the warmer tones more flattering on my fair skin than stark white – a realisation most porcelain beauties can relate to.

When it comes to the basics, I cannot go past a versatile skirt with a fitted form, and this Wish Focus Skirt definitely ticks the right boxes. To help out my lady friends, I’ve done a style comparison, finding some great alternatives to this piece, in slightly different cuts, patterns and pricing. I recommend this asymmetrical skirt, horizontal stripe split skirt, and this pencil skirt.

Because I love uniformity, I’m teaming my striped skirt with an ivory top to create a matched set. I’m loving the revival of fringing and have added three fringed finds to the wish list, courtesy of Shopbop: J.O.A. Fringe Crop, Emma Cook Mia Top, Rebecca Taylor Silk Fringe Crop Top.

For ivory, off white & cream outfits, I always accessorise with a deeper colour, and find the combination of rose gold and black leather, as seen in this Eminence Collection Timepiece a perfect choice. On my other wrist, I’ve added a bold, monochrome anchor bracelet, also from Eminence Collection, which introduces a subtle nautical theme. Keeping the rest of my jewellery simple, I’ve gone with a delicate Samantha Wills circular pendant, matched with rose gold studs.

Do you have a little tip for when styling ivory, off white & cream outfits? If so I’de love to hear it in the comments below. Here’s to an exciting summer ahead! x
