The shirt dress. A chic way to dress morning,noon or night. Left loose or belted. It’s a classic piece to add to your summer wardrobe.I guess winter too-if you want a transitional piece probably best to go with a darker colour.

I love this soft cream silk for summer days. Simplicity is best. Left to flare open in the breeze. I love these high splits in maxi dresses. It’s a nice effect to show of shoes and tanned legs. I guess this piece could also be worn on the beach… ahhh dreamy beach days. Slip it over a bikini and head for the beach bar. I’ve worn mine here a little Grecian. Gold braid belt and strap sandals.

Have a great week xx Dawn

Feels like summer

Don’t you just love summer. Warm days that just feel so easy. Long lazy nights sat with a warm breeze and a cold drink. There’s definitely been a feel of summer these last few days. Dressing for summer can sometimes feel daunting. Having to unveil skin that hasn’t seen daylight for months isn’t the nicest feeling. It can sometimes feel awkward. Tops of legs and arms or the belly. Wearing cut out tops and shorts can feel alien to start, but it only takes a few days and everything feels natural again.

Preparing skin for summer sun can be an effort. But if you keep on top of it, you don’t need to be constantly worrying about it’s appearance. A good exfoliator is the key and I also like to use a coco butter to moisturise my skin as it’s longer lasting and really helpful at hydrating my skin. I’ve recently used the Charlotte Tilbury body balm and magic face cream. I have to say the results are amazing. My skin was instantly radiant with minimum effort. I always like to tan my skin with a little help from my favourite James reed mousse. Make sure skin is treated before applying-especially if its for a special occasion. I never exfoliate the same day as I tan. I always worry about damaging the skin then adding something to it that can aggravate it. So I allow at least 12 hours before I apply the tan. I always moisturise my ankles and hands after the tan to try and even it out. Bony areas are always a pain to get right. Big point to watch out for is washing hands after tanning. Don’t do it…well not for at last 30 minutes anyway. Gentle exfoliators are the best for the face, nothing too rough remember delicate areas need some TLC. Keep lips soft in the heat with a handbag size lip balm and I always think a eye serum is useful to use throughout the day to keep looking fresh and radiant. Happy pampering. xx Dawn

I love lace so much I’ve had to double up on it. No matter what colour, lace plays a major part in my wardrobe. Summer is the perfect time to exploit such a love. Layering piece on top of piece is a pretty look. Delicate pieces that compliment each other is the best way to go. I find things that have lace detailing like this cami and cardigan great for an everlasting look. It never seems to be wrong when you wear lace. Day or night.
I love wearing day wear that looks like night wear. Lingerie style dressing. ‘Should you be wearing that in the day’.. kinda theme. It’s still pretty chilly on days so layering is still a major part of dressing at the moment. I really can’t wait to leave the house without a coat. I’m looking forward to a warm weekend..the prediction is it’s to be warmer then Ibiza. Fingers crossed. I had better start preparing the skin for some day ligt exposure. Have a wonderful weekend.

I was wearing every piece  WallisShirt, Jacket, Pants

Scarf, shoes & handbag also Wallis.

It feels like spring is starting to arrive. It’s been such a long wet winter. I just love it when the nights start getting lighter and the days become brighter. I can’t wait to wear all the gorgeous summer clothes. It definitely feels like life is starting to open out again. Which also means it’s the season for special events- weddings, polo days, regattas and pretty much any other special occasion.

In fact who needs an excuse to dress up. I’ve gone for this classic cream suit. I love the cropped length. Especially good to show off the summer shoes. I thought it was pretty much the perfect piece for most occasions.
I can also mix and match every piece into my everyday wardrobe. Jacket with the jeans, pants with a sweater and so on…. It’s even great for a lunch out on a summers day.

I love preparing my summer wardrobe. Spring cleaning the winter clothes from my wardrobe and bringing in all the lovely soft colours, florals, ruffles and floaty dresses.
Wallis have just launched their occasion hub which has just about everything you need to prepare for the summer invites. There are so many styles I want to embrace this year. As I mentioned in my previous posts. I really feel this summer is going to be one to enjoy dressing up. Geek, romantic,stripes, metallics, florals everything is everything. I think you can tell I’m rather excited for summer. It’s definitely my favourite time of year to enjoy clothes, shoes and days out. Check out the “>hub here for a few more inspirations. xx Dawn

I was Wearing

Pants, Sandro Paris (look for the perfume style)
Blouse, H&M
Corsage Broach, here & here
Shoes, Prada (vintage)

I love the ruffle detailing this year and pretty much everything else. Corsages, collars, scarfs and these cropped bell bottomed pants.
I’ve introduced a little vintage with my Prada heels which I’ve treasured. I always say about looking after pieces so they can be worn time and time again.
Did you see the trends hitting the latest catwalk shows. So inspiring. I loved the Gucci collection. It sparked a real desire to change the way I dress.Introduce colours and patterns and little extras like the collar bows and corsages.I think this Summers fashions are going to be amazing.

I’m really hoping the high street mimick what we’ve seen on the catwalks for spring summer 16. It’s refreshing to see a change in style. Moving towards new influences. I love the delicate feminine tones and eccentric styling.Spring summer looked amazing but the latest AW moved on again, so it’s a really exciting year for dressing up, accessorising and individual styling.

Lots more looks over on my instgram recently and coming here in the next week. I wore this outfit for a lunch to celebrate International Women’s day. Such a great chance to talk about how amazing we are of course and about all the latest news affecting women in the workplace and the best options for us health wise. Check out this company, they are doing amazing things for woman to have a choice for that time of month. When using products that can be harmful these guys are offering a great safe alternative. I’m always keen to promote things that are good for women. Having a choice is fundamental when it comes to our bodies and our health. XX Have a great week Dawn
