I’m still here in England enjoying the beautiful weather, and I’m really not ready to leave in a few days! We’ve been so lucky to have been home during such a glorious spell (very unlike the typical British summertime), and have been making the most of the rarity by visiting as many of my favorite spots as possible. I’m going to miss sunny strolls exploring the countryside I grew up in, and I just had to stop to take some pics in this beautiful corn field.
I’ve written about maxi dresses for Summer many times before (check out my favorite ones for a tropical vacation here), and they’re still one of my favorite pieces for warm weather. This one by Lisa Marie Fernandez is gorgeous: it’s lightweight and comfortable (I even wore it over jeans recently to Soho Farmhouse!), but it’s still playful with its ruffle shoulder and tiny polka dot print. You’ll know from my post last month on transforming feminine summer pieces, that I love taking a super girly item like this dress creating a more chilled-out and edgy vibe by switching up the shoes or accessories. Instead of going for sandals, I paired this dress with my white sneakers for a slightly more tomboy vibe, topped off with my trusty boater hat. Plus, the sneakers are a much more practical option for walking outdoors, road trips, and even plane rides – perfect for Summer travels.
To take this look from day-to-night, I’d switch up my accessories, adding a pair of heeled sandals and a statement necklace or earrings. However you choose to style it, you’re set to be looking chic and feeling comfortable.
