Summer Styling

With longer days and summer right on our doorstep, we have lots of summer events to start planning and look forward to. Whether that’s a wedding or your work end of year/Christmas party or a backyard BBQ it’s exciting to think about all the fun summer outfits you will wear. Here is some of our summer outfit inspiration to help plan your next summer event look.

The Wedding Look

Summer weddings call for light dresses and sunglasses with something you can throw on to take you through to the evening reception. A scarf can be the perfect way to avoid carrying around a jacket and provides a nice light layer that will keep you warm once the sun goes down.

Floral Dress , Blue and Yellow Dress, Blue shoes, Pink shoesScarf, Iridescent earrings, Blue earrings, Sunglasses


The BBQ Look

Warm summer evenings are the best times to have a BBQ with friends. This is a great occasion to wear your favorite summer dress. Pair it with slides or sneakers for an effortless look. Alternatively, you could wear a top with a skirt or jeans, just go with whatever feels good.

Christmas parties are the perfect excuse to wear your favourite party dress. Pair it with some little black shoes and some Christmassy accessories and you’re good to go. Don’t forget a Christmas red lip!

Winter gets a bad rap sometimes. It maybe gets more of our bad moods, a bit of impatience about the fact it lacks the amount of warmth and sun we love, it can be hard on our mental health… I choose to look at winter as a time to pause, warm myself up from the inside out, enjoy the dark, enjoy the cool, the clearness of the stars in the night sky, the chance to wrap up nice and snug and let my clothes give me a cuddle, knowing that warmer months are just around the corner and with that…the Spring/Summer range we can get our hands on hahaha!

Grace's Winter Reading Recommendations

July 01, 2023

I love reading all year round but there is something so special about curling up on the couch in winter with a warm blanket, hot drink, and a good book. The best winter reads tend to evoke a cosy feeling and for me that usually means some kind of murder mystery or fantasy book.

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.

Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
