What I Wore: Dress – c/o The Fifth, Shoes – Zara, Bag – Brit-stitch, Sunglasses – ASOS
I seem to be going through the brightest colours imaginable this week, with yellow in my last post, and bright orange courtesy of The Fifth in today’s post! But if you can’t wear a colour this bright in the middle of summer, when can you? I was definitely feeling pretty gutsy on the day I teamed this dress with white heels, as I seemed to be turning quite a few heads (probably because they thought they’d seen the sun in human form) but sometimes it’s good to stand out a little…! With something so attention-grabbing, there wasn’t much for me to do but go subtle on the accessories, and swish about with such a flattering waist and flippy skirt. This might not be the most ‘me’ dress, but it’s definitely one of my favourites, ever! x
P.S. The Fifth will be launching on ASOS very soon, if you liked this dress (or the LBD and top I’ve also worn) check back first thing next week, I’m waiting to put basically everything in my Saved Items!
What I Wore: Dress – c/o Darccy, Daisy – c/o Beauty Base , Shoes – Zara
Taking a little break from my Parisian backdrop, I wanted to share an outfit that features the perfect fit of items, because sometimes- and it isn’t that often- things come together just right. This is exactly how I felt when, on the same day, I received this beautiful yellow dress (complete with superman-cape shoulders) and Marc Jacobs’ Daisy perfume. I couldn’t resist snapping them immediately!
Yellow isn’t usually a colour I wear much of, but summer always wins me over to it. And this dress was no exception; with its subtle two-tone design and a princess-swirl of a skirt it stood out to me amidst the vintage dresses and beautiful lace designs that Darccy has to offer. And, as if I needed any more persuading, I’m almost certain my lovely friend Liv has a similar dress, and has a knack for making dresses look so very demure and elegant- a look I’m attempting to emulate here! x
What I Wore: Floral Jumpsuit – c/o Fashion Union, Necklace – c/o Links of London, Sliders – New Look
After the heat of our first day in Paris, we took to exploring the city as best we could. Day two was spent wandering the streets of Le Marais, a neighbourhood containing Victor Hugo’s home (Les Mis fans will know this man!) and close by to the Notre Dame. Our time was dedicated to swooning over vintage boutiques (with price tags I couldn’t quite afford) and admiring wonderfully-scented food popups courtesy of the Jewish quarter.
It might have been a little too hot for an all-over number, but this floral jumpsuit from Fashion Union felt right at home in Paris. And because walking around lots in summer means getting away with wearing shoes so comfortable they’re more suited to indoors, these sliders more or less stayed on my feet (or were packed cleverly in my bag for later). But just in case this outfit started looking unusually casual, in steps my Links of London necklace! From their Effervescence collection, the necklace has small silver bubbles along the chain, which won me over in seconds- tiny bubbles on a necklace? Too cute! x
P.S. I announced the winner of my Jarlo giveaway on Twitter yesterday, thank you to everyone who entered!
