(Dress: Motel, Shoes: Zara)

After browsing the Autumn Winter Motel collection, I was absolutely bowled over upon discovering this Kate Middleton-meets-ballerina-fairy dress, and instantly fell in love with it's simplicity, elegance and amazing versatility. Although I only teamed it with some nude strappy shoes for a simple summery look, I'm sure it would look just as lovely with an oversized black boyfriend jacket and cosy opaque tights come winter! The collection oozes intricate prints, rich colour pallets and some gorgeously luxurious fabrics (think velvet and lace detailing) all combining next seasons trends, without losing their transseasonal charm.

Anyway, I hope you're all enjoying the glorious British sunshine and have had a lovely week! I've had a busy week of work, Byron burgers and seeing Spector live at Rough Trade for their album launch; which I have to say is AMAZING. So if you listen to one band today/buy one album get 'Enjoy it while it lasts' I promise it won't disappoint.

  3. wow gorgeous outfit !
    Nude looks really cute with this outfit, I would've gone all colour block and added coral platforms or something. I must not be afraid to embrace the femininity sometimes tehe.

  34. I may check that dress out - I've been after a white lace dress for ages but cannot find one that I like. Who woulda thought it could be so tricky. The problem is that so many of them are cheap fabric or badly cut and it just doesn't work.
