Black summer sun dress

Black summer sun dress

Hello my fellow sun loving people! I mean what a summer we are having over here in the UK😀.

Decided to lap up some rays over breakfast this morning in a dramatic black frilly sun dress from none other than the high street wardrobe saviour “Cos” that gives us not just staples, but pieces that are geometrically arty and can stand the state of time.

Light weight frilly semi sheer dress from Cos

Now black is not the first colour that springs to mind when the sun is out, but trust me this dress is so light weight and flowy on top of being so beautifully designed. It is made of a very light semi sheer cotton and silk, so not heavy at all even for the kind of heat wave we have been experiencing over here in the UK.

There is also an added fun factor to the dress with the adjustable hem cords to adopt this stunning dress to your planned activity or event. Another investment piece, wouldn’t you agree?🙃

Tory Burch summer wedges
These are great with any pastel pink and blue colours

So we are all still reeling from the fantastic day we have had with the Royal Wedding. It has been a pretty incredible day that just happened to coincide with a friend’s birthday, so what better excuse to get dressed up, get my groove on and head for Coq d’argent brunch in Bank.

Sun was out and so of course I am going to rock my D&G retro sunglasses!

I recently purchased a pastel blue gathered maxi shirt dress from the Cos summer season 2018 and I mean the colour is a dream and so is this dress. It really is such a bargain at the contemporary Cos price as it would go for a lot more if by a high end designer brand. This is why we all love Cos, a brand that brings quality and edgy fashion at an incredible price. This dress is not bad at £79.

Its all about the accessories right? So I paired up with a Sandro My Lou Medium bag in Contrast light brown, nude pink and white. This is currently priced at £280, but at this time of the year I would definitely wait for the sale and get that 30% off especially as this is a bag you will use for years to come, it’s so retro.

The Tory Burch floral wedges I picked up from the Outnet and you will find a range of discounted summer beauts like these at around £120-£140. I think they are worth the spend as they can be worn several summers to come with loads of wonderful pastel pinks, blues and whites. They are leather print by the way! A great investment.

If you love the nude pink stacking ring, then head to Astley Clarke. Even better sign up to their customer base and wait for a sample sale where you can pick up one of these for £20-£30.

All in all a fabtastic day. Oh the Chanel bag at the table looks great but not mine am afraid, belongs to a girlfriend. To be fair I am so in love with my Sandro bag, what a beaut…
