Cotton Cool.

Why is it, your face tan is the first to go? You think with it being the most exposed part of you, it would be constantly getting a top up. So I am sorry, that my face is questionably lighter then the colour of my legs, that are in fact superbly holding on to that Bali tan I had.

This outfit as a whole, what does it conjure up? As well as the location here, I could be in Dubai and not the streets of Hackney. I feel like I should be drifting amongst markets in Marrakech, having my palm read by a mystic mind reader, maybe taking a camel ride, all the while a warm sweet breeze flowing through my hair. Isn't this kaftan a sweet dream? I find it romantic and lusty - It's my idea of the perfect summer dress. It's baggy, lightweight and beautiful. Admittedly I had it taken up a couple of inches, so that it didn't drown my frame. I wanted to counter balance it's loose, airiness with a shorter length. I am 5-ft 2, so if you are taller it probably has the perfect proportions just as it is. I love that it has silver threading, subtly running all the way through the cheesecloth fabric that glints in the sunlight as you move. 

What's a little romance without some tough love? I think adding the leather jacket is a great way to bring this boho dream of a dress back down to earth, it toughens it up and reminds you that you aren't at Coachella anymore, lets get back to real leather life. I think it all looks heavenly teamed with my Steve Madden lace up espadrille wedges in Taupe suede. Perfect for that summer wedding, or any garden parties... Go dazzle 'em.
