Wearing: Shakuhachi ‘New Romantics’ dress, ASOS hop scotch wedges

Just checking in today to say just how much I love this dress from Shakuhachi’s Summer collection. It’s one of those dresses that will just make you squeal when you pick it up & I most certainly did when I first welcomed it into my wardrobe. I literally wore it as soon as I got it today! Its modest neckline paired with a well fitted pencil skirt makes for the perfect silhouette and ticks all the boxes for my ideal Summer dress. The quirky pairings of fabric are a nice subtle touch of detail. First you’ve got the embroidered spots with scallops circling around them. Then you’ve also got the unexpected embroidered daisies along the neckline and metal-tipped collar as well. And you know how I feel about flowers.. :) I decided to keep the look clean, fresh and crisp by pairing it with some equally white retro inspired chunky wedges. Simple yet still with its details. It’s a whole lot of Summer vibes in one outfit and I’m definitely going to try soak it up before heading to Europe next month!

    It’s lovely! The pattern is really amazing and I love how you paired it with golden jewellery. It makes the whole outfit look more chic!

    I’m loving the interesting spot colour on your nails with your very muted outfit. 
    The dress is definitely squeal worthy!
    Looks great to wear during Australian summer.
