Outfit: beach belle

The last post from me before the honeymoon, so it felt fitting that it involved a beach... although this beach is very much a British one with not a palm tree in sight! 

I picked this dress up in Collectif's summer sale last year, which is a bit mean of me cos now you all can't get it... But this style seems to have entered Collectif's permanent rotation and has appeared ever since in different colourways, which is great to see. The stripes of this one definitely feel nautical, so it was a good match for my lobster necklace and a seaside scene like this one.

And that's really all I have to say today, there's a lot of packing that doesn't seem to be doing itself...

  1. This dress looks so chic on you, I like the peachy accents along with the red, it's unexpected but really works.

    Have an amazing honeymoon!!! Enjoy the beaches of the palm tree kind!!! I hope to see some tropical photos at some point xx

  2. You've got me excited about two things: wearing my lobster necklace again, and taking photos by the beach!
    I'm looking forward to some tropical outfits to inspire my wardrobe when I get back to Australia and have to face summer round two :P

  4. This dress is so different but so, so elegant, so summery and so classic - it could well be one of my favourite looks on you. Have a wonderful honeymoon - looking forward to the posts afterwards! Kx

  5. It's an excellent dress - and your blog is about you, so if we can't buy it, we can still admire it.

    I keep eyeing up those pencil dresses and having to remind myself they won't work with my bowling-ball gut. It's nice to see one looking good on you!

  6. Fabulous beach look! I love this dress on you, and the color palette is really fun - the red, white, and blue, with little pops of pink, is perfectly "nautical chic."
    Have a wonderful honeymoon! Can't wait to hear about your adventures when you get back.
