THE OUTFIT FOR EVERY OCCASION

As the school year here in England comes to a close (yayyyy), it's time for summer barbecue's, parties with friends and holidays in the sun. But before all that gets under way, I'd recommend getting together your summer wardrobe for the sunny months ahead, and to help you out - here's a super simple and easy outfit that works for every occasion AND how to spice it up to suit yourself!

THE DRESS
As the sun begins to appear a little more often, it's the perfect time to get out your favourite dresses. For my outfit I chose this gorgeous black from Zara which has unfortunately sold out, but here are some gorgeous alternatives! I love the simple, chic look of the dress - it isn't fitted or a heavy material, meaning it's perfect for summer and will go with literally anything already in your wardrobe! 



THE JACKET
Obviously a denim jacket might be a little hot for the summer time, but on those days when the winds a little cold or you're heading out for the evening - picking up a slightly oversized denim jacket, is the perfect idea. Stylish and fun I chose a pale blue wash to really complement my dress. Make it unique to you though: studs, rips, colour - choose a jacket that will last and you know you'll be coming back to over and over again.

THE SHOES
Sure, pink strappy sandals and little floral pumps are great for summer - but you seriously cannot beat a good pair of metallic shoes and for me, it has to be my silver Vans. They are seriouslyyyyy gorgeous and go with anything in my wardrobe whilst adding a touch of modern chic to any outfit. Perfect for any occasion (formal or not,) a pair of lightweight metallic shoes are the answer to all your questions.

THE EARRINGS
I loooove hoop earrings, okay so I'm not a fan of the super-sparkly absolutely huge ones - simple, classic hoops are good for me and I chose chic silver ones to tie in neatly with my shoes and really bring the outfit together. People really underestimate the power a good pair of earrings (or even other small pieces of jewellery) can have on your outfit!

  1. It is the perfect outfit for any time. The funny thing? I was almost your twin yesterday IRL. I had on a black dress, sneakers and denim jacket (only mine was white)
    Great minds think alike!!

  2. there is something so classic about the combo of black and denim, I can never get tired of it. The same goes for denim and white...something so basic about it. I was just writing about it yesterday because I illustrated one such look.

    This black dress looks lovely on you...and the denim jacket is so cute. You look great. Have a fantastic weekend!!!
