Boho Chic :: Paisley Printed Dress + Red Pairings

Saturday, May 30, 2015 Simone - Your Style Architect 13 Comments

Happy weekend everyone.

Wow.. what a week with problems galore to solve with the house help!! I am glad to say that all's sorted out now. Indeed with increasing hours at work, I was seriously sweating it without the much needed help to look after the dogs and the household. Thank god all's well now and I can refocus on my work and on blogging.

This is a dress recycled from many years back and yet this shift style works perfectly for those spring / summer evenings. The boho style print on a lightweight polyester fabric keeps one cool and chic for an evening party or even for a weekend brunch. I like the fact that the long sleeves add that vintage element to an otherwise simple shift dress.

Paired this dress with brown strappy wedges for a weekend brunch, but since I was heading out for dinner with a girlfriend, so suede pumps and a clutch was my choice of accessory pairing this time and with layered necklace.

For those of you who struggle sometimes with pairing of accessories for your outfits, remember to find a colour you love within the outfit and bring that out with your accessory pairing each time and voila.... you got a different look with different colour pairings. Have worn this dress a couple of times and trying to invoke a new feel to the outfit with each pairing. Red pairings was opted this time to give it a chic evening punch.

Dress : Dorothy Perkins ( old ) ( similar here) // Bag : Gucci (old) // 
Heels : ZARA // Necklace : H&M
