LINEN DRESS AND CASTANER WEDGES

Good morning everyone, todays attire is all about this Linen dress. So this soft, breathable fabric once was reserved for home furnishings and bed sheets. But with all things in fashion this centuries-old fabric had become a summer holiday staple piece by the 1990’s. This was spotted on pool siders wearing their boyfriend-style shirts over their swimwear.

Recently the Linen material has been very popular and was seen all over the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2019. The likes of Zimmerman and Tibi amongst a few, had them coming down their runways. It is great to see the likes of Apiece Apart, Jacquemus and Joanna Sands reworking linen to make it feel modern.

 

/ LINEN DRESS / ESPADRILLES / BAG / SUNGLASSES

So in Mum Life, if you didn’t already know we have moved to Dubai for a year. The boys have been extremely good about it, although they have all been missing their friends. All the children are back at school now so for the first time I think they are missing school! Who would have thought it hey.

We are currently staying in a serviced apartment which is ideally located three minutes away from The Dubai Mall. So you know I am loving that with all the shops at my finger tips. In a few week we shall be moving into our villa, which the boys can’t wait for as it gives them a little more freedom to wonder around as it happens to be in a gated community.

This will mean getting them back into a routine, we have decided that the boys will be home tutored. This will give them a little more time and freedom to do the things they enjoy. I shall let you all know how things progress and how the home tutoring goes.

LINEN DRESS

Right lets get back to the attire at hand and to this Linen dress from Nasty Gal. The fabric is so comfortable to wear in hot weather and I for one have been loving wearing it out here in Dubai. Hence the reason why designers are so drawn to the fabric and why it has become a standard in many designer summer collections. Not only is this fabric durable and breathable it is made from flax plant and is therefore highly sustainable! Whats not to love about this rare gem of a fabric.

This gorgeous Linen dress that I am wearing features an asymmetric, maxi silhouette with a V-neckline and lace-up tie detailing at the back. Bringing sexy back for sure, if I do say so myself!

ESPADRILLES

Next I opted to style my linen dress with my black Castaner wedges  from Net-A-Porter. A great pair of wedge heels that works beautifully with my dress. I know I keep raving on about how comfortable they are and how they work with most outfits, well for me they are. Set on a jute heel, this black ‘Chiara’ pair is made from canvas and finished with ribbon ties that securely wrap around my ankle. The perfect pair of shoes in my opinion to take on vacation, wear them with dresses, skirts  and even jumpsuits like I do.

BLACK BAG

Moving onto my bag and I decided to stick with black and therefore went for my Agnes Nordenholz baguette bag. Love this little bag that has straps that are detachable and comes in two interchangeable style, one shoulder strap in vegetable leather which is what I have on and the other is the baguette rope style. The bag comes with a turn lock closure and gold plated brass hardware.

Agnes Nordenholz is a slow luxury label founded in 2015 in Berlin. The creative mind behind this brand is Agnes Schorer and the intention behind the brand is to produce soulful products, that will last for a long time. They combine high craftsmanship with intriguing designs. A forward thinking brand that has unique handbags, which I absolutely love. Take a look HERE at the collection.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finally for the finishing touches I grabbed my Le Specs cat-eye sunglasses in the style Rapture. On my lips I am wearing M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolur in the shade Topped With Brandy and at the centre I wore Chanel Coco Rouge in the shade Adrienne to complete my look.

    Another amazing look from you, Lovely! You should be on the catwalk. I’m so glad to still be seeing summer clothes since it’s still hot here in Texas (and most of the U.S.). I’ll worry about autumn fashion when the evening temps actually start cooling down a bit more. That’s a beautiful dress and I love that you paired it with black accessories. Those wedge espadrilles are just gorgeous but give me the Guccis! LOL – just kidding…totally kidding! And how awesome for your kids to get to experience living in a new country! Dubai, I’ve heard, is a beautiful place to see and I’d love to explore it some day.

    Hi Lovely! How exciting to move to Dubai for a year! I loved the expats life when our family moved to Hong Kong for 3 years. Great experience for my two boys.

    I love an easy breezy linen dress on a hot summer day. Love how you paired it with these super comfortable espadrilles and that mini purse is perfect for the whole ensemble.

    Enjoy Dubai my dear!
