Flawed yet still worthy
Rewinding back to the heatwave
The smiling sun coming out to play
Flowers shine with laughter as we naturally glow
But the question arises, what do we wear in this weather?
Looking for inspiration in store and online
The phrase nothing to wear comes to mind
Social media must have the answer
Hashtags, videos, and beautiful imagery
Embracing the summer feeling
Consumed with one thought
It’s in the title, full of vibrancy
The epitome of summer, a seasonal trend
Delivering island vibes, can you guess what it is?
The dress of my dreams involves floral prints, bold colours and a loose-fitting style. Complimenting my figure, I’m obsessed with wrap styles since the day it arrived. Once appreciating the bodycon dress, but the heat insisted I branch out. It’s time to make the switch, replace my previously loved clothing with flowy summer garments. Each summer I have a go-to dress. Last year it was a floral piece that I purchased in Dubai, that seems to have been misplaced. The colour and floral print meshed together well in a breathable cotton fabric. This year nothing seemed to stand out, I was searching online and on the rails of my high-street favourites.
That all changed last week when Boohoo* answered my wishes. Honestly, a huge thank you for gifting me a beautiful dress that will be worn again and again, on holiday to be exact. When looking through their dress collection, I had to factor in what style, colour and what fit suits my body type. The answer was simple, staring at me the whole time, a wrap dress. Flattering my curvy pear-shaped figure, adjustable to most body types and moves beautifully. In other words, the effortless nature of the wrap dress will have me feeling like the world is my runway, as I casually strut my stuff.
Colour me crazy
Let the dress do the same
Cause for celebration
The search is over
The dream dress has arrived
Staring straight into my eyes
Let me guide the way
Inspiring for another day.
Ticking many boxes, I can’t help but be excited whilst telling you about my new floral baby. An important factor to consider is colour. Does it compliment your shade, add drama to a look or more simply, does it make you smile? If you hadn’t noticed colours matter to me. With that in mind, my dress needed to have a pop of colour signifying summer. The red works flawlessly as it represents love, warmth, courage and excitement, all positive qualities. If that wasn’t enough, the neutral colours allow the wrap dress to be worn across seasons, with a few style changes.
New season, new look yet familiar weather. In autumn, I would pair a floral dress with over the knee peep-toe boots, as the dress has a high-low cut it adds to the sex appeal in a classy way. Summer styling involves one key element, comfort, the need for practicality in an outfit especially when running around London is a must. My summer style inspiration was based on colour matching, accessorising by using colours from the dress. I paired the piece with grey trainers (comfort), a red handbag (practicality) and cinnamon statement earrings (flavour). This look can be ideal for a picnic in the park or a casual lunch date. Be fabulous this summer, live your best life with confidence. What’s your summer style staple?
