In an attempt to draw out spring in the UK, I've been thinking about what to wear to a summer garden party - I had some time to kill in London's Oxford Street last week and found myself lusting after all the summer dresses in the department stores...!
The one I fell absolutely in love with was the Somerset by Alice Temperley maxi that I featured on my Instagram feed. The floaty fabric and blossom print were so pretty, and it got me thinking about garden parties and what I'd wear should I be invited to one (chance would be a fine thing)!
I've created two maxi dress outfits that I hope will give you some inspiration for garden parties, summer weddings or even to a regatta or watch the polo (again, if anyone wants to invite me...)! I've tried to be practical with block heels: No sinking into the grass with these beauties.
I'VE CREATED TWO OUTFITS THAT I HOPE WILL GIVE YOU SOME INSPIRATION FOR GARDEN PARTIES, SUMMER WEDDINGS OR EVEN TO A REGATTA OR WATCH THE POLO.
Even if (like me) you probably won't be attending any regattas or similar events this year, you may have a wedding coming up and it's always good to start thinking early about what to wear. Read on to see the outfits and full details of where to buy - and if you want lots more inspiration for maxi skirts and dresses (and specifically what shoes to wear with them), check out my latest newsletter.
