OOTD: Summer Days

Summer has hit us hard this year in Australia. It started early and with a vengeance! Because of the heat, I've been spending a lot of time in boring shorts or cropped leggings. I'm always looking for ways to throw a curve ball into my Summer wardrobe (I style up much better in the cooler months!) and from the first moment I put this Scarlett & Jo dress on, I knew I'd found it!





Dress: c/o Scarlett and Jo
Headband: Jay Jay's
Flats: Target
Necklace: Bought on holidays in Greece!

The dress is super lightweight without being too clingy. I love the feel of a thin cotton-like material in Summer, breathable and soft. The long kimono is attached to the shoulders by one loop in these photos and after that first wear, I separated them so the dress and jacket are two pieces. They are both so versatile, I know I will get heaps of wear out of them!

Sizing wise, I'm wearing a UK24 which fits pretty much perfectly. The dress is a body-con like fit but without too much cling.  The kimono is a relaxed cut with plenty of room in the arms and the waist. Together they have such an awesome bohemian vibe.



 


I've actually worn the black dress quite a few times now, on its on just with basic accessories. I love the midi length, it's such an instant chic cut that transition between casual and dressed up easily. For this outfit, we were heading out to lunch with some of Ben's friends so I opted for a more relaxed beach vibe with the t-bar flats and flower crown. I love the way the crown compliments the kimonos colours, plus I never seem to have enough excuses to wear my flower facinators!

How do you mix up your Summer wardrobe??
