It’s Always Cocktail Hour Somewhere

Wedding season is upon us, as is an abundance of warm evenings and cold cocktails, with or without the nuptials beforehand. And just like that you seem to need an entire new section of your wardrobe made for sundowners…

I’ve teamed up with Net-A-Porter to pull together a favourite look from pieces from their new dedicated vacation section. To me, this would be just as good at a London wedding as it would be for pasta and limoncello in Amalfi. I think we need to focus some dedicated airtime on the shoes before all else…. Ridiculously pretty, so much so they’re almost a little kitsch, I knew I had to have these Gucci beauties as soon as I saw them. Like the sweetest chintzy wallpaper and yet insanely cool at the same time, I’ll be wearing these all summer long with silk slip dresses or just vintage jeans and a white tee so they can hog 100% of the limelight. Another showstopper, these Oscar de la Renta clip-on earrings feel all kinds of amazing on and once again, add a bit of drama to the simplest of things. Essentially add ons like this give basics like black tops and tailored trousers (albeit in bubblegum pink) 10 times more longevity.

I have an abundance of dresses in my wardrobe right now for weddings and just about everything else, but there’s something really chic about wearing trousers to stuff like this from time to time. Whenever I see someone wearing cigarette or palazzo pants at any kind of event, I immediately wish I wearing the same. I remember one of my best friends wearing a white wide leg pant suit to our confirmation at school aged thirteen and she really put the rest of us to shame in the style stakes. In comparison, I think I wore some kind of knee length cream suit from Kookai… Yum.

Good news is Net-A-Porter’s sale just started and I’ve done a little (large) round-up of favourite pieces in the sale at the bottom of this post. Yep, I trawled near to every page of wares to find the best shiz. I’d be buying it all if I could…
