Firstly, I apologize for my cheesy Grease reference in the title but the song has been in my head ever since I saw City Chic's latest collection Summer Lovin'. The collection brought along pastel colours and Hilo (or mullet) Skirts and Dresses showing that Summer really is right around the corner. I wanted to share two looks that you could wear to two of my favorite Summer events; The Summer Festival and The Office Christmas Party.
With Summer comes my favorite events; Summer Festivals! Whether you are dancing your butt off at Stereosonic, celebrating New Years Eve at Falls Festival, or running from stage to stage at Big Day Out, you want to wear something that is stylish, cool, weather proof, and most importantly comfortable. The Cami V Front is a gorgeous Summer staple, it's simple and can be dressed up or down with Jeans, Skirts, or in this case Shorts. The Lover Knee Shorts are perfect for a Summer Festival, stylish and comfortable and also the perfect length, they will ensure you can look great but still manage to dance around all day, and will help save your modesty when you're lying on the ground getting your energy back. I am in love with the Pretty Peacock Kaftan and dropped into my local store today to try it on. I ended up taking it home with me, the cut is extremely flattering and the Kaftan helps me to embrace color in baby steps.. The Kaftan is perfect for this Summer Festival outfit, it adds a little color and is also light enough to be worn throughout the day, protecting you from the sun Complete your Festival look with the Princess Bangle Set which I also picked up today, to add a hint of bling and you will be one of the best dressed girls onsite!
OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY:
I absolutely adore the Rose Print Drape Dress the rose detail on the top adds a cute touch alongside the gorgeous ruffle. The dress is simple enough to allow you to wear it to work if you are unable to get changed before your party. If you are conscious of your arms and like a little coverage then the Pleat Shoulder Cardi is the perfect match for this dress, it is light weight and comfortable to wear, and is also simple enough not to clash with the beautiful print and ruffles on the dress. To accessorize slip on the Black Metal Bangle Set and the Black Dome Ring.
There are two Summer looks for two very different Summer events. What are your favorite Summer Events and what City Chic piece will you be wearing to said Events?
