Broderie Anglaise

Although I am a sucker for winter fashion, an all white look makes me think of summer and I’m liking it! I forgot how much I love the beach and the warm breeze that makes Sydney all the more liveable. When the warm whether ticks over, I usually struggle to know what to wear. I think it’s the British in me, where layering is ingrained from a young age. If you can’t master styling multiple waterproof layers, you are shunned from the fashion world….just kidding. But I’m honest when I say that summer isn’t as fun for styling when wearing a couple of clothing items due to sticky 30+ temperatures. Thankfully, Karen Millen are making my transition into summer that touch easier.

I remember when I would save a month on my part time retail wage to purchase a posh new dress from Karen Millen in my late teens. They were always so well tailored and fit like a glove. Then I was blessed with the company merging with the brand I worked for, hello 33% discount! In my student days, this was a massive deal and converted me into a Karen Millen shopaholic in no time.

I’ve recently been reintroduced to the brand, and have been pleasantly surprised by some of their less formal pieces. Broderie Anglaise is a style that I like to revert back to most summers, but this season I'm drawn more towards the midi length. My legs are no way tan enough yet to wear a version of this dress with a shorter hemline! But I actually really like this floaty style, especially when styled with killer gladiator sandals. I am still obsessing over anything Chloe this month, and if there are similar alternatives available, I'm in. The lightweight biker jacket is a perfect addition to the all white look as I’m always reaching for that extra layer early mornings.

It won’t be long before the temperatures crank up, but this year I am challenging myself to stay true to my style. I’ll be doing this but finding lightweight tailoring, and floaty pieces to channel a touch a boho on my more relaxed days. Bring on the sunshine!

  1. Oh wow, you look amazing in that white dress! And, I know for a fact that you rock summer fashion, though I do know exactly what you mean. As much as I love an oversized tee and denim cut offs, sometimes I need to feel a little more sophisticated (a lot easier in winter!). Longer spring dresses and gladiator sandals are definitely the way to go though!
