Occasion wear from SimplyBe*
We’re still in full blown occasion-season – weddings, race days, christenings, etc, and I don’t know about you but I always find it difficult to find that perfect outfit. SimplyBe have currently got a great range of occasion wear including their take on all of this season’s hottest trends including maxis, skater dresses and stand out prints which I, for one, am a MASSIVE fan of. I was sent some key pieces to add to my wardrobe.
Everyone needs a little bit of sparkle in their lives and I love this top that I wore to brunch at The Hockley Arts Club in Nottingham this weekend. I love this because it can be dressed up with a pencil skirt and stilettos for a more formal occasion, or dressed down for daytime like I have here with leggings and sandals. Accessories should be kept to a minimum when going super-sparkly so I’ve just kept it classic with my rose gold Michael Kors watch.
The statement dress
This Joanna Hope dress is perfect for a day-time late-summer weddings where you want to make a statement but don’t want to upstage the bride! I love a skin-tight silhouette as I feel it’s super flattering, especially if you’ve got a slightly more curvy figure. Again, because the print does all the talking, it’s best to keep accessories classic and I teamed this look with nude heels and my Marc Jacobs sunnies.
A nice top
You know when you just want to wear jeans and a nice top? This is that top! It’s strictly occasion or night time wear as it’s got quite a bit of bead and sparkle detail round the top as well as the lace so a bit OOT for casual day times. It’s perfect for an evening meal, drinks with the girls or even a party and I think it goes best with black skinnies or leggings and sky high heels.
