Miss Guided's Summer Edit

It is finally summer here in Australia, and consequently there are numerous perks associated to this. Let us start by embracing those regular beach trips, to soaking up the warmer weather, even when it is dark outside. 

Miss Guided and I have thus collaborated together to style three outfits from their latest 'Summer Staples' range. Generally speaking, I wanted to opt for alternative ways to dress for the season without having to resort to the typical Australian summer's look- think singlets, shorts, thongs/ flip flops etc.

For the first outfit, I went for a more preppy take on the pleather midi skirt, with a metallic, backless top. I have been lusting over a midi skirt for months and when the opportunity finally came up, I knew I had to feature such a versatile piece on the blog. Moreover, it is always exciting spending a few hours feeling the beautiful breeze touch your back as you're twirling around the streets of Adelaide in these green, croc- print heels.

What do you wear when your friend spontaneously informs you that your catch up date with them is well overdue, and that they are picking you up within thirty minutes? For this second outfit, I wanted to portray a more casual, minimalistic look, especially when worn with these blue, velvet slippers. What's better? I wouldn't even need to bring a bag as I would just slip my iPhone, bank card, and lip balm into the trouser's pockets.

It's summer. You are ought to attend more music festivals (I am definitely guilty of this), or to go out a lot more than as you would during the winter. Thus, this is my take on the more boho/ festive/ laid back vibe, which is also a good contrast from the previous two outfits. 

I love the simplicity of this swing dress with its intricate lace detailing around the arm sleeves. In terms of shoes, the chelsea boots deserve a round of applause. I could happily stomp around for days with them on, and not need to complain to anyone that my feet hurts. To complete the look, layering on with accessories was essential. Choker necklaces and hoop earrings were therefore my selections for the day.

I hope that these three outfits make up for my one month hiatus away from the blog. Again, there are no excuses and hopefully the motivation will continue to peak throughout these summer months before Uni starts again in March. 

If you are feeling bored, feel free to spare a minute of your life to (anonymously) comment below informing me of which outfit, from the three, did you favour the most? I would love to know! Have a lovely week,
