Here’s an outfit post from our mini moon (I’ll be doing a full travel post soon) and this look summarises one of my all time favourite holiday looks, the crochet dress! For days, I’ll layer them over swimsuits and ta-da a chic and fun beach outfit, complete with 2017’s tassel trend earrings and this headband (also glad headwear is having a moment – it’s always good for a not-so-ideal hair day and I get those more often than not on holiday!)
And if I haven’t mentioned already (I’m excited about it) NYFW SS18 showcased Crochet and Lace will be big next year too…
This dress was the first thing I spotted in Next’s SS17 catalogue and I instantly fell in love, but I actually picked it up in the sale so I’ve picked out some of my favourite alternatives, which can be found below in my outfit reel.
I teamed it with these Castaner esparadilles from Net-a-Porter and these are my absolute favourite – they’re so comfy (I’ve linked both the denim option (so so beautiful) and the black pair in my reel too). I tried on lots of pairs from multiple shops and found these the best fit for me! Great for adding that casual heel to a beach outfit too!
The headband is Zara but there are lots of options around, particularly on Zara and asos (I’ve linked an asos one below too). If you’re able to splurge then don’t miss my favourite Missoni and Gucci options below too!
These dreamy tassel earrings are from Topshop (available here) – I’ll be wearing them right into winter. Yes, the tassel earring obsession continues.
And of course, not forgetting “that beach bag” that even got all the air hostesses talking about it and not because it was probably to big to be on board! Super practical; a beautiful weave; and larger than life; just perfect for the beach! This, however, was a total sell out – no surprise. Lucky for you, I’ve hunted out some other ideal options (and some even have tassels there too)!
My next post will be a wedding one – coming very soon, maybe when I’m stuck in a not so chic Travelodge tomorrow night on a work trip…
