What shoes to choose for a summery day date to the beach

Summery days with the warm breeze kissing the face is a blessing that we want to have 365 days a year in our lives. Sadly, our demographics don’t allow so. After being catapulted by the grim winters and autumn for a major chunk of the year, summer truly is the time to rejoice and get our bikinis out. The perfect weather makes it the best time to go to the beach, enjoy some chilled margaritas with the girlies and lie as the salt water and cool breeze calm our senses.

The idea of going to a beach in pitch winters is a foolish one. So a person who loves the sea looks forward to the summer and spring season, for a beach holiday to let the hair down. And it’s pretty worth it, too. The beach has this eerie sense of calm about it and soothes the soul of the most mentally wounded people. There’s not one reason why a person shouldn’t be visiting the beach when the time is right in the year.

Besides, this is time, when women can truly flaunt their skin and curves without getting a chill to their bones! The colourful bikinis come out, the skimpy bathing suits are flaunted and beautiful legs make a foray into the world. The beach is such a wonderful place to be!

Beach fashion for the feet

The only part about beaches that haunt women is the amount of sand that sticks to your body. Especially when it gets to all parts of footwear; no matter what you wear on your feet. While people may walk barefoot on the sand, it’s not advisable as shells or little crabs may give your feet the worst time.
So, here are the best types of footwear you could be wearing on your trip to the beach –

 

1. Flip-flops

A no-brainer, really; flip-flops are your best bet. They are made of rubber and no amount of sand or water will affect their longevity. One tap along each other and all the sand come off of them. Besides, the vibrant and haute colours in flip flops will make you choose more than one!

 

2. Gladiator flats

These are the best, if you are going to be wearing a bikini or a short swimsuit. It will not only make walking in the sand comfortable, but will also give your bare legs a dimension. And you can always choose the length of the gladiator flat sandal as per your choice.

 

3. Tie-leg sandals

Again, if you are going to be flaunting those legs on the beach, give your legs an element to flaunt too. The tie-leg flat sandals are available in so many types; plain Jane, tasselled sandals and even the fringed ones; there’s a lot to choose from.

 

4. Crocs

Crocs and beaches go hand-in-hand. If you have nothing in your closet, a pair of crocs will let you survive. These let your feet breathe and are super comfortable. As the Crocs  strikes your feet, they will not stick to your skin and will give you an easy time.

 

5. Slip ons or slide ons

Given the fact, that you are going to remove your footwear a lot of times and then wear it again, you need something that is easy to wear and not takes much time to come off. For this purpose, slip ons and slide on are best. They come in so many styles; you can choose from the mini wedge or the light wedge, there’s the double strap or the single strap or even the cross over strap!

 

What sort of footwear do you have packed in your summer hoiliday suitcase?

Summer Designer Dresses I Want

We are currently baking in the sunshine, thanks to the crazy heatwave! The weather has been painfully warm for a few days now, and it looks like the sunshine is going to hang around for a bit longer.

With the weather being so warm, it feels like summer is here already, which is fab for dress lovers like me. When the weather gets dead warm, all I want to have on is a dress. Wearing anything else usually does my head in. Wearing a dress keeps me comfy and stylish, so it is a win-win in the summer months.

I have been doing some online shopping for some dresses to add to my wardrobe this summer. I recently stumbled upon OD’s Designer Clothing website, and I am loving some of the fancy designer dresses they have in stock. If you know me well enough, you would know how much I like my designer labels, so this post should come as no surprise.

Here are a few of the summer dresses that caught my eye  –

 

Frieda Red W Ted Baker Dress

I love this striped Ted Baker dress. I think it is so stylish. It would be a great dress to wear to a wedding or any glam event. It would be easy to style as well. I would style this with a pair of black or navy blue shoes and clutch bag. I could also pop on a fascinator for a WOW effect.
W Love Moschino Dress

This is one lovely looking dress. Moschino slayed it with this beautiful piece. It is bang on trend and super stylish. It can be dressed up or down, which makes it an excellent choice for those with a capsule wardrobe. I love this dress.
Rebecca Rhoades ‘Ivy’ Mini Dress

What is summer without a little black dress to party in? I can never say no to a little black dress, so this piece naturally caught my eye. I adore this little black Ivy mini dress by Rebecca Rhoades. I love the style and cut of the dress. it would look amazing with a pair of heels and some simple jewellery. It can also be dressed up or down, which makes it even better.

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania ‘Ash’ Dress

It would be a dream to have this Vivienne Westwood piece in my wardrobe. It is a great piece to have this summer. I like the design of the dress, espeecially the ruffled scoop neckline.
 Ted Baker ‘Eleese’ Skater Dress

So I saved the best for last with this stunning piece here! This orange Ted Baker ‘Eleese’ Skater Dress is definitely my favourite summer dress here. I love skater dresses because they suit my bodyshape. I have quite a number of skater dresses already, but I want this too! I love the colour of the dress and the fitted waist.

May 2017 Outfits

Hey peeps! It is that time again. Another month is almost over, and it is now time to talk about the outfits of the month. May has been an OK month for outfits. I had the opportunity of showing off 2 very different outfits. Here is a quick recap if you missed the posts.

 

OOTD: Summer Time

I really like this New Look dress I am rocking here. It is a new wardrobe addition, I got it some weeks ago. It stands out in my wardrobe, it is very different from what I would normally go for and I love it for that.

I found this dress incredibly easy to style, and so comfortable to wear, especially as the days are getting warmer. I love wearing dresses in the summer, I usually can’t be bothered to wear anything else when the weather gets dead warm. I just need to remember to have my legs shaved, lol.

What do you think of this look? I think the dress is pretty but I believe the highlight of the look is the Oversize Bow Denim sandals by Kurt Geiger. Do you agree?

 

OOTD: Blue is the New Black

This is the second and last outfit for May. I am wearing a dress by Quiz Collection. It is another beautiful addition to my dress collection and I am so in love with it. I think this piece from the new bridal collection at Quiz Collection is so elegant. It is fab for a wedding, dinner date or a very glam event.

The highlight of this look is definitely the blue dress. Do you agree?

What do you think of both looks? Which is your favourite? I can’t seem to decide on the look I prefer. Maybe because they are very different.
