You guys know how much I love a pretty dress; I rarely feature separates on here or my Instagram. So it will come as no surprise that I’ve been rustling around for summer dresses the past few weeks. A good wardrobe for the upcoming season takes plenty of planning, patience and perseverance.
I have become more of an online shopper in the past couple of years. It’s easier than walking around for hours, especially since a lot of my favourite stores have very few branches. I also like shopping on sites of department stores or sites like ASOS because it is a great way to discover new brands. It’s how I found a couple of my summer dresses for this year.
The ‘New In’ section of the Selfridges website is a great source of inspiration for me. It keeps me updated with what’s new and which brands have new collections. It’s also the easiest place to spot emerging trends. A few weeks ago, I found this beautiful silk gem of a dress. The Kooples is a brand I always liked and browsed but never bought from. A french brand, I’ve always thought it was tres chic but admired it from afar until now.
This dress is the epitome of a girly summer dress; it is lightweight, flowy and pretty. The beautiful silk makes it timeless and the floral print is classic. Ruffles have been trending for a few seasons now so I think its safe to say they’ll be around for a while still. I don’t have much red in my wardrobe so that was another justification I made when considering my collection of summer dresses! This dress is super easy to throw on and wear with sandals and sunglasses. For a far cooler look, I would team it with a leather jacket and some ankle boots 🙂 Follow me on Instagram to see more of my summer dresses… <3
