Outfit post: sky blue dress and men’s designers


A sky blue dress adds a little summer to my day  whatever the weather.

 What I wore

I went for a spring sky blue look, but didn’t want to look too weddingy, you know? I thought a leopard print scarf, and a black tailored jacket would help to avoid this. Paired with a pair of wedged boots and Bob is indeed your uncle!

Dress: H&M £19

JacketOasis £85

Leopard print scarf: H&M £15

Key ring: Wonsuponatime £12

The event

It was the launch of the Men’s British Designers’ Collective at Bicester Village, attended by a glam crowd, including some very pretty models, DJs and the very stylish. It had a very British feel to it, with beautiful quirky detailing, which you can see from the photo below:

How gorgeous is this boutique?

    I love that you’ve turned this dress (that could be wedding-y on its own) into the perfect day outfit. Brava!
