Slight obsession with the military loo this Autumn. It’s a pretty straight forward look but with gold buttons and knee high boots it can be a easy way to everyday chic. Having timeless pieces are always a good investment. Wearing or using something most days is value for money. I try to be good and not over buy. I really try not to buy things I love but would never wear. I’ve done so much of that in the past. It looks beautiful on the hanger or I love the idea of wearing it but the reality is it stays on the hanger I and it never becomes a piece I would be able to use or wear.
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.
We had such beautiful weather whilst in London. I took full advantage and snapped a few pictures of this gorgeous black lace dress. A little bit cheeky with it’s sheer nature but I’m totally into this style. I love the look. It’s such a great piece for summer. Non crease and light weight which means it’s the perfect packable dress.Low maintenance-high impact
Packing for summer hols can be such a headache. No one wants to be ironing constantly but in the same breathe you want to look amazing on days/ nights out. Finding this kind of summer essential can make life and holidaying so much easier.It would also fit well in hand luggage. So if your not checking in a heavy case and your only away for one or two nights then this ticks all the boxes. Are you off anywhere nice..?
I’ve been in London for the Banana Republic event that I was co hosting with three other bloggers at the Regents street store. It was such a lovely evening. And I got to showcase my favourite summer essentials. If you follow me over on instagram you’ll see my dress from the event. It’s dreamy, and if your looking for a dress for an occasion I’d definitely give it a try. I’ll also put a post up of my outfit and of the night.
I’ve so many beautiful looks to post up so I’d better get a move on. Have a super long bank holiday weekend. 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.
