Brunch; The Summer Maxi.

This weather has continued in its fine form so we must take advantage of it as much as we can, even if we moan about how hot and humid it is, because what else will we do about the weather but moan, we should still revel in it. It won’t be summer forever. Enter the almighty Maxi. The Maxi is to Summer what Coats are to winter; ESSENTIAL. I can’t remember a summer without a maxi. This simple and stunning two tone, double layered georgette maxi dress with adjustable spaghetti straps and elasticated neck from Halston Heritage ticks all the boxes; easy, breezy and cool. The billowing lightweight material flatters the moo-moo shape; its not every day you hear flattering and moo-moo in the same sentence is it? This is for the big brunch with besties you know, the ones where you talk your ears off, reminisce about the night before, down mimosas and eat as much as you like; it’ll hide a multitude of sins. Accessorise simply; cocktail ring; nothing elevates a look like a big and bold cocktail ring. I adore the playfulness of this Tory Burch enamel bangles. Get loud on colour with this Marc Jacobs cross body bag. Gold summer sandals of course and as always, top it off with the perfect sunglasses. Cat eyes are becoming a solid favourite of mine.
