When each new season rolls around there's a few brands I look forward to seeing what they have to offer.
Great Plains is always one of the first I head to.
Each season I invest in a couple of pieces from their range as they are always:
a. Excellent quality
b. Super versatile pieces
c. A little different to what's on the high street.
I mean take the tomato poppy red blouse below, its colour is so vibrant and the fabric feels luxurious, I haven't seen anything else like it around.
So when the lovely folks at Great Plains let me have free reign with this seasons fabulous new pieces, well i was like a kid in a toy shop... My reply? Just gimme all the goodies please.
After much perusing for a long long time i knew what i would love to style up for a look book in my own way. The Summer dresses are a must, do take a look.
Here's what i went for:
The tomato red blouse i mentioned above was one of the first things that caught my eye, you'd have to be colour blind for it it not to. Truth is, in real life it's even more beautiful and vibrant than any photos we captured could portray. The fabric is a dreamy soft floaty-but-not-too-floaty fabric. It skims and doesn't cling, yet doesn't add pounds by hanging like a tent either.
The subtle v neck collar is super flattering and makes it easy to wear for office smart with a skirt or casual weekend wear. Like i said super versatile.
I paired it down with the navy trousers which are the most comfy forgiving trousers i have ever worn. Think as comfy as joggers and you won't be far wrong.
All finished off with a classic trench. I love this look for the age old conundrum of Smart-Casual.. I think this could work perfectly. Need it a little smarter, just change the trainers to shoes.
Grenadine Red Top
Marsie Navy Trousers
Adidas Stan Smiths
Summer weekend ready, the stripe tunic is perfect weekend wear. Beware it is a loose (ish) knit and unlined, I paired mine with a light petty coat and it was absolutely perfect. Alternatively it would work so well layered over a vest top, white skinny jeans and some tan wedges, which just screams holidays to me.
(Also it runs large, if you want to feel good about yourself, this tunic is definitely your new best friend)
The denim jacket was just begging to be paired with it. They just seem like the ultimate combination for a casual happy weekend.
Waffle On Dress
New Look Denim Jacket
Yosa Clutch & Bag
At 5ft 6 its a comfortable yet not frumpy knee length and absolutely dreamy to wear. I would dress this up with mules or tan wedges in summer, and then also out in the day with tan sandals. The possibilities are quite simple and easy with the dress because its just so damn good. It has a tie waist for definition and also pockets.. A girls best friend is a dress with pockets :D
A big thanks to Great Plains for loaning these wonderful clothes and allowing me to play dress up. It really has been so fun and i now have a shopping list as long as my arm!
Which is your favourite piece?
