Outfit of the Day - Nautical Summer Dress
||| Lookbook |||
There's nothing more exciting than putting on a new dress on a Summer's day - fact! You instantly feel glamorous, feminine and ready to do fashion walk down the runway (or your hallway, whichever). This gorgeous Motel Rocks striped dress hits all the right spots and has my beloved retro vibe to it with a hint of modernity. It's a flattering shape, although I wouldn't advise people who have a wide waist to get it as horizontal stripes can widen the area even more. However, the vertical stripes on both the upper and lower sections of the dress are super flattering and slim you down instantly. The gold button detailing at waist adds the kitsch 50s sailor vibe to the gúna, without making it look tacky. The dress is gorgeous to dress up, like I have done so with the heels but it'd be just as cute teamed with a pair of pumps or Converse. I love versatile Summer dresses, than you can instantly take from day to night!
I paired the dress up with a simple pair of Pearl (faux) earrings from Dunnes Stores and my staple nude YSL Tribute-alike heels from New Look. They're such a must-have shoe for everyone to own, as they go with everything and are extremely flattering and leg-lengthening.
