I am not too keen on occasion shopping when it comes to outfits. It is easy to make a mistake when under time pressure and buy an outfit just for the sake of getting something new. Having staples that will serve more than one occasion is a key for me.
I bought this little navy dress on sample sale quite a few years ago. It is maybe more fitted than I would have liked but hopefully I can still make it work. It would be ideal for most of the formal outgoings like weddings, christenings or special birthdays and anniversaries.
I have paired it with one of my favourite pumps in my collection. Surprisingly comfortable for the heel hight, they go well with pretty much everything. The clutch bag is more of a statement item but gives something edgy to this otherwise simple outfit. I bought it about seven years ago and although I do not wear it often enough, I do not have any intention of ever parting my ways with it.
So that is what I wore one very formal Sunday !

There is a new video on my channel as of today showing you everything I have been loving in August !! I would really appreciate if you check it out…
Shopping on the high street can be a very good experience, not only because items are generally more affordable but also due to some amazing quality finds. There are a lot of pieces that are not worth your time and money but if you look a little bit deeper, you will find some treasures.
The dress shown today is from H&M and it comes from collaboration between the clothing giant and the fabric designer GP & J Baker. They are famous for their prints and with more than 100 years of tradition, the collection does not disappoint.
When I saw this dress first, I was not sure if the style was something that would suit me but when I tried it I knew instantly that I love it. Wrap dress as a style is completely new to me but with this dress being such a hit, I will shop it in the future.
The rest of the outfit is nothing that you have not seen before. My trusted pair of sandals and a cross-body bag that goes well with most of my outfits.
So that is all I wore last Sunday !

Summer is made for dresses and with such a nice weather in the whole of Europe, I am taking full advantage of that situation every single day. More often that not, I stay away from vibrant colours but the dress shown today is one of the exceptions.
When I first saw it, I loved it instantly but decided against buying it due to the price. I debated for quite some time and when I eventually got it, I knew instantly that it was a very good decision.
If you follow me for a while, you may know that I like things that last. Made out of natural fabrics with maybe slightly higher price point but that will serve their purpose season after season. Despite common believe and what I may show you on my blog, label does not matter. I am very keen on supporting and discovering smaller brands with right work ethics and using responsibly sources fabrics so if you have any recommendations let me know !
Moving to the outfit shown today it is nothing new but it feels comfortable and serves the purpose. The dress combined with my favourite bag this season and a pair of black espadrilles is all I could come up with and I like it a lot…
