Fine Knit over Printed Dress
I love pretty summer dresses but this summer has been a bit of a write off so I haven't had many opportunities to wear any of my lovely floaty dresses. But I will not be beaten! One way around it is to team a silk dress with a fine knit and ankle boots. This is a great weekend look and you won't freeze your bum off in it (note: I did actually put fake tan on my legs, I tried out the new St. Tropez in shower tan gel...it did not work! If you're looking for that fake tan smell with none of the glow then this is for you! I did only use it once though so it is definitely a gradual tan).
The fine knit is Selected Femme €49.95 BT2 buy online here (there's doing two for €69.95 online)
The printed silk dress is Zara about two summers ago, buy similar here
Belt is from Topshop similar here
I actually wear this look with my brown suede ankle boots (see previous #styledby:sarah post!) but you can equally wear it with these sandals from French Connection. But these very affordable beauties from New Look would work just as well.
The cross body bag is vintage from New York a few years ago. Similar here
I also wore my hoop earrings which were about 2 euro from H&M but they go with everything!
