ASK LOUISE: How To Dress For An Outdoor Party

Hello Louise! I’ve been invited to a sophisticated outdoor party this July and I don’t know what to wear! I don’t want to look too casual but I’m not sure if formal is the right look either. Please help! – Maribel 
 


 
Finding the right balance of sophistication and cool summer appeal can seem tricky, but it really isn’t! Chances are you already have the perfect pieces in your wardrobe for any and every outdoor party. I recently attended a garden party and reached for my go-to summer essential – the printed maxi. Every woman should have a few summer maxi dresses or skirts in her arsenal as they can be dressed up or down with the right accessories, for every occasion. A solid bright color is always classic, but you could also look for an eye-catching print in a sexy silhouette (midi length is huge this season – wear with a heel). I love this high-low style for it’s lengthening effect on the legs, and as a platform to showcase a killer pair of strappy heels (opt for a chunky style in case of grass). Keep the jewelry delicate but stacked, the hair messy and wavy (here’s how to get the look) and you’re all set – no summer stress needed.

  • Looking through old photos today, how was she ever this little? Just a little mouse! 
So to all the mummies out there... how is the jump from 1 to 2 👶? Not quite ready yet, but pondering!
  • I’m freezing. Should’ve worn my thermal vest like Mum said 👕 
But I do love these jeans!
  • London Fashion Week I’ve missed you! 
Ps. This is my mum’s @marksandspencer coat from the ‘80’s, how cool is that 😎
  • Bill and Ben, the flower pot men 🌾
  • The faux-leather skirt of dreams... Such a perfect piece for giving me a bit of power when I need it. Link in bio for why I love the power of the leather skirt and shop my faves http://liketk.it/2KktR #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Between work trips and house moving, I haven’t had a chance to get to a gym. I really enjoyed my training session with @pvolve the other weekend but the best thing about them is that you can stream the exercises from home, which makes working out in my own time so much easier. Swipe up on my stories for the link and use my code LOUISEROE for 15% off. There’s also free international shipping so you can try their equipment anywhere. #pvolvepartner
  • #ad Getting ready for a biiiig red carpet tonight in London, I’ll be chatting to every star of @skytv’s brand new #SkyUpNext shows... watch my takeover live on @SkyTV’s IG, and plan your sofa entertainment for the rest of 2020! Ps. These shows are epic, I got a sneak peek 📺 🧐

  • No time to take a pic today so i filmed a little unpacking update instead! Are you following @louiseroehome yet? Here’s a peak of my new closet... & excuse the greasy hair, I am gross (but v happy!) 😂 📦 📦 📦
  • I don’t love what the long winter has done to my energy levels & skin! Some of the little changes I made since moving from LA, for winter wellbeing: porridge for brekkie, homemade ginger tea, oversized cosy jumpers and @LumityLife supplements. The morning capsules stop me reaching for a second (or third!) coffee, and the night time vitamins have helped me wind down & sleep better. Swipe up on my stories to shop  #Lumity #LumityLife #YourBestAgeIsNow #ad
  • At this point, am I in the #SATC movie?! A fond farewell to @eliesaabworld from the Dubai Desert #leparfumessentiel #eliesaabparfum #backtoessentials #ad
