The currently smokin‘ hot with gorgeous dresses Missguided dropped me an e-mail the other day, with a challenge. The challenge was to create an outfit suitable for a Summer event.
Sad fact. I have no typical Summer events planned; no weddings, days at the races or garden parties (not even a BBQ) but never one to turn away a challenge, I decided to proceed anyway.
And because it’s most likely that you’d find me at a garden party (preferably an old school TEA party), here’s what I picked as my dream outfit for it.
I decided to keep it minimal and simple. I don’t want to be keeping track of stray hats, sunglasses and other various accessories. I want to have fun and eat cake.
I picked a bright dress to make an impact…
The Aldara Tailored Lace Pleat Dress (currently sold out) in burnt orange has the fit and shape I love, whilst not being too “out there” in terms of colour and pattern. The lace keeps it girly and the colour reminds me of hot summer days.
On my feet you’ll find Tropez Floral Print Super High Wedges because an all out floral outfit would be a garden party cliche, but an outfit for me, wouldn’t be complete without some flowery action. The wedges add height (lots of it) without that awful “heels sinking in to grass” issue that plagues thousands of women all summer long.
And to accessorize? Nothing but bright polka dotted nails, using the Love Nail Polish set. The colours clash delightfully with the dress and there is plenty of scope for nail art goodness.
What do you think? Garden party worthy? What do you think of the Social Style range?
