First of all, I know, I actually have my legs out in a post! All I've been wearing since the summer crept out of nowhere is dresses, skirts and shorts - it's been too hot to worry about how white my legs are! 

I absolutely love this cream and navy dress; I wore it out to an early summer's evening meal with some friends. I think it's a nice compromise between casual and dressy; I wore it with sandals but it would look great with a pair of tan or gold wedges. The rope belt with the gold cuffs gives it a fab nautical twist (I love the nautical trend!) and gives the dress that extra oomph it would be missing otherwise.

I really enjoyed doing this OOTD post, as at the beginning of the year I made a resolution to do more fashion and lifestyle posts, which I've not been too good at. So if you would like to see more, please let me know!

    1. The rope belt is definitely my favourite part of the dress! Didn't think of the beach, I wish I lived near one xx

  2. Sasha you look great - love that dress! I wish I could look so natural in OOTD posts - I always look so awkward! Any tips send em my way! xx

    1. Thanks Jenny! I practised a few poses in front of the mirror first and then I would say just try to relax, I get really anxious about being in photos on my own!xx

  3. The dress is soooo cute and I love the rope element to the outfit :)
