Summer Light

In 35 degree heat there is not much to wear that’s chic and really cool. Except this super light black ruffle belted dress (similar) and Grecian disk sandals (Nine West) I never thought I would say it, but, it’s too hot for heels!!!! (I carry them in a little bag for meetings)

For My Amusement

Cute little French top – which is perfect because I live in the Former French Concession in Shanghai. I do so love a theme.

T – Zara. Skirt – Promod. Boots – Mango Touch. Sunglasses – RayBans

Red & Dotty

Love this dress, especially that I can interchange different colour belts to change the look (I previously blogged with a bright pink one!) and highlight with other accessories. Make sure you get belt loops!

Red Blazer – Zara, old (similar with elbow pads) Polka dot dress – similar. Black Pumps – Nine West Caress. Ring – Swarovski

Floral Pashmina

Every Monday should be accompanied by a flamboyant floral scarf. This has been clinically proven to brighten the spirits and positively influence people’s perceptions of you. Well, I can’t prove it but it feels right doesn’t it?

Floral Pash – similar. Pink Dress – similar. Heels – Charles and Keith new collection. Weird anchor bracelet – local market

 

 

 

Friday Mini

One of my favourite looks. A cute mini, ankle boots and a trusty denim shirt. Perfect for pink drinks after work!

Shirt – Gap. Hounds-tooth mini – Similar. Black Suede Boots – Mango Touch. Pink Watch – G Shock. Clutch – Jaspal (old)

 

 

 

 

Pleats Please

Initially I was nervous about this dress making me look shapeless and lanky, like Olive Oil from Pop-Eye. Adding a belt made me feel a little more ‘secure’ but I must admit, I am loving the loose freedom fit. I feel like I should be at the races in a dramatic hat (no wind allowed, when I say floaty I mean floaty!)

Pleated Dress – Mango. Snakeskin Pumps – old (similar) Leaf earrings – gift. Tan belt – from other outfit (similar)

Here it is without a belt…..

Casual Dots

By now you are aware of my slightly obsessive love for polka dots. This little number is super light-weight, perfect for summer, outdoor markets, over a bikini to the beach, picnics….I love it’s versatility and pockets.

Polka Dot Frock – Gap. White studded pumps – TopShop. Turquoise clutch – Accessorize (old, similar) Raybans

 

 

 

 

I always chuckle at my pics when I see myself in flats, standing on tippy-toes. That’s the sign of a heel-loving girl!
