The Best Spring/Summer Dresses

I’ve decided that it’s imperative that I invest in a few dresses this season. The options are just too dazzling. We’re talking metallics, whimsical whites, florals etc. You name it, it’s on the street and I need it in my closet.

I’ve picked out my top 6 favorite styles and fabrics including a whimsical white, which will always be in style, a truly timeless and classic piece. I’m also loving denim dresses for their laid back, vintage vibe.

Metallics have been a fun addition this season as well; from shoes, bags, and now dresses. This shift dress is the perfect design for a metallic color because it’s simple but the shimmer is eye-catching. Florals are huge this season as well, especially in more structured looks, like these shirt and body-con dresses. Last but not least we have the off-the-shoulder number from Mango. It’s the perfect throw back to 70’s style, and paired with lace up sandals makes it the quintessential summer look.

Spring Shoes To Feel The Flutters For

We’ve all (mostly) seen fashion week; seen the trends, the shows and what the models were wearing off-duty. We can all readily admit that this season feels like it’s a “anything goes” season. There were over-sized layers, minimal looks, suede everything, 90’s everything, floral everything, super feminine, super masculine etc… and the list goes on.

Fashion has been having a major moment over the last few years because designers are thinking out of the box, and onto the streets, to see what’s actually being worn.(This is not new news..) Colors, patterns, chunky heels, suede, and jeans that have had everything done to them to ensure uniqueness, is the norm these days. Gucci layered their loafers with fur, and if it doesn’t get more impractical than that, then we can for sure assume that amazing, non-practical (but weirdly practical at the same time) fashion will be here for a while

All that to say.. Check out some ideas for your spring/summer shoe closet!

I’m loving metallics, loafers, mules, menswear inspired shoes, bright colors, and ultra feminine styles, wedge espadrilles, and wedge everything. Like I said… Anything goes. Creating unique, special and exciting looks are the beat this season. Dig up some oldies but goodies and see how you can style them!

I’ll readily admit that some styles that are missing are perhaps a fun ankle boot and flat sandals.. but those are practically closet basics.

I’m turning the big 3-0 this year and my nerves are almost shattered. Apart from it meaning that I have to admit to being half a real adult now, it means that there’s certain things that I just really can’t wear anymore. (An article about that later…)

During New Years, one of my closest darlings came to visit us in the UK. Whilst out shopping I found the cutest little white lacy number that would’ve looked adorable on her. Her opinion was different because she felt that she would look like a child in such a dear little top. (She’s gorgeous btw). I, however, disagreed, and have since made it an effort to come up with a way to wear a flirty little number without looking like a desperate 16 year old. (If you find that I do, please tell me!)

The first order of business is to find a top that fits you really well in all the right places. This goes without saying.

Secondly, the bottom. Right now destroyed denim is everywhere, especially high and mid waisted, also boyfriend and flared styles. Any of these are a great companion to your little top, but if destroyed denim isn’t your thing, then try a solid dark blue (or black) pair of high-waisted (or mid, depending on your body type) jeans with a nice wide belt that stands out. Then add your shoes. I’d go with a strappy heeled sandal to distance your self, in this case, from the sneaker wearing youths.

Hair and makeup is next, and I currently love doing a low semi-messy bun.  Think Dolce & Gabbana. (I tug at the back of the hair so it’s not super neat looking.) I love this demure look because you can wear anything bold and that low bun tames it right down. For makeup, I did a bold smokey eye with a soft, natural lip and dewy cheeks to lift the overall look and again, and add age to the top. This is the one good time where you want to add age. Doing a neutral, no makeup look is good for the beach in the middle of summer, but any other time and your overall look will appear more juvenile that necessary. (Unless you were to do the other elements of this look, in which case you could probably get away with it.)

Last but not least is statement jewelry. A cuff bracelet and heavy (think huge) earrings add a touch of sophistication and timeless style. (Again, Dolce & Gabbana esq)
