Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is based around this H&M Flounce Dress. I am currently loving what H&M are bringing out, their SS19 Studio collection came out yesterday. They have some wonderful pieces, if you haven’t seen it already why not take a look HERE. Now I know Spring has sprung upon us, but is still doesn’t quite feel like it just yet. So with this in mind I have styled my ensemble according to the current climate.
So lets begin with my H&M flounce dress, this is in a light beige which has a hint of pink. I am loving the high neck ruffle detailing as well as the long sleeves with the ruffle cuffs. This comes in an oversized fit and is very flowy and pretty. A great way to add a feminine touch, ideal for those warmer Spring and Summer days. I can see myself wearing this flounce dress on repeat as the weather starts to get warmer. There are so many ways to style this dress, I could have easily worn a pair of sneakers/trainers and dressed it down. The flounce dress would also work rather well with a pair of Castaner wedges.
KNEE HIGH BOOTS
Talking of footwear, here I have decided to style my H&M flounce dress with my knee high black boots from Carvela at Kurt Geiger. As it was a little chilly I didn’t want to expose my entire legs. The style of the boot is called Whirl and if you are interested they are on sale now and they have quite a few of the sizes in stock. These have a slight slouch to them, which I don’t mind at all. They actually stay up and I don’t have to keep pulling them up like some other pairs that I have worn previously. A great pair of boots that would lift any outfit whether it be a crisp workwear or a laid back weekend attire. The material is in this gorgeous butter-soft suede with a smooth lining which adds to the comfort.
These are just so comfortable and easy to walk around in that I have been re-wearing them to an inch of their lives. I am on my second pair now and have just bought a third which I am saving for this Autumn/Winter. Who else does that? For me it is difficult enough in the first place to find the right fit of knee high boots that once I do find the right one I will always try and purchase a second pair. Of course it depends on the price too! This tall boot is detailed only with light tonal stitching, and has tapered mid heels which are very comfortable to walk in. It also has pointed toes which create a chic silhouette and works rather well with my H&M flounce dress.
Moving onto my bag and keeping in theme with the black I opted for my Modalu England Rosie shoulder bag. This bag has been worn on repeat in the last few weeks, and I am just loving it! Such a chic and elegant bag with plenty of room and space for my everyday essentials. An opulent black bag that can transform any ensemble. The bag is in a square silhouette and made from brushed velvet and satin fabric. Inside there is a triple compartment for all your essentials. Finishing off with a flap and the Modalu branded magnetic closure. Comes with a wide strap which can be worn cross body or you can carry the bag like a clutch. Here I have chosen to wear it crossbody, leaving my hands free.
Next and onto my Fedora hat, this one is from Whistles. I always find that a hat always elevates my look and gives it the statement worthy feel. Great for chillier days as well as those sunny days to keep the rays of my face.
Now you all know my ensemble is not finished without my trusted sunglasses. This cat-eye pair is from ASOS and instantaneously gives me that added glamour I’m looking for as well as shielding me from the wind and the sun. Of course not forgetting those morning tired eyes! I am a huge fan of cat-eye sunglasses and now that summer is fast approaching I am on the hunt for a new pair. I came a cross this Saint Laurent pair at Net-A-Porter which I would love to get my hands on.
For the finishing touches, you know the routine by now. I am wearing Teddy Bear matt liquid lipstick by Lime Crime Velvetines. I am on my fourth one now, yep thats how much I am loving this mauve nude! On my finger I am wearing my AUrate New York cylinder ring in gold to finish off my ensemble.
