Summer Styling

I’m all about packing light for my summer holidays, and doubling up outfits for evening and then as day wear after.  Obviously this requires a set of different accessories and a few pairs of shoes, but taking less clothes means this is justifiable! You have a great excuse when you’re other half asks if you really need all of those shoes!

Here’s one of my favourite ways to style from night to day:


I’m a sucker for leopard print and think it’s such a great dress up/ dress down print!  For night time I’d pop on some killer heels, I’ve gone for strappy ones as you don’t want to get too warm feet on holiday.  A classic black clutch bag with some great bangles will add to the evening look.

Keeping the black and gold theme going into the day, I have chosen black sandals, my trusty Mulberry bag (to fit my DLSR in, and all the bits you lug around on holiday) and a really simple ring.  I’ve left off any bangles so it won’t affect my tanning during the day!

Having been browsing Marks and Spencers dresses, I’ve chosen this super cute polka dot dress as the dress I’d most like to take away with my this year!  I think it has great possibilities for dressing up and down!  And after my holiday I’m sure it’d look great with a blazer for work!  I do love to get the most out of my clothes!

How do you style your summer dresses?
