Croquet in Chi Chi

Chi Chi Pink Neema DressAh!  I can't keep up!  We're halfway through August and I'm still leafing through my wardrobe wondering which floral midi skirts and sleeveless bodies to pick up next ready for the warm weather.  Pretty soon it'll be a case of digging out the cosier clothing (I'll confess, I'm already wearing fluffy socks while typing this), though until then I'm determined to squeeze every last drop out of the summer season!  As fate would have it, a rather pretty arrival from Chi Chi coincided perfectly with my overwhelming desire to immerse myself in a game of croquet.  Let's play!

Game of croquet in Chi Chi dressFor as long as I can remember, I've been into sugary sweet dresses that seem to ooze femininity.  And so when opening this beautiful gift from Chi Chi London, it's safe to say I went into meltdown.  The Neema Dress features heavy embroidery (which you know I love), scallop hem detail, padded bust and button back fastening.  However, my favourite element is undoubtedly the mesh underskirt; five layers of varying materials and you've got an extremely pretty midi dress on your hands!  This style also comes in pale blue (Shay Dress), though after this love affair I'm pretty confident my heart now belongs to the colour pink...

Miss Miranda jewellery by Lily and RoseSo, besides a heavily-embroidered dress, what do you wear for a game of croquet?  Hmm, considering i've not played in about three years, I'm probably not the best person to ask!  However, it goes without saying that a lawn of any kind requires shoes that don't see you sink deeper and deeper into the grass.  With this in mind, I reached for my trusty Slick sandals by Carvela.  Funnily enough, while looking into the sandals for this post, I came across them in the House of Fraser sale!  Better yet, I noticed a black version also existed - so yes, I've just ordered them.  Oops!

Continuing my love for dainty jewellery, I opted to accessorise with this delicate set by Lily and Rose.  You may remember my previous collaboration with them last month?  Well, on this occasion I'm wearing the Miss Miranda (green) set, having picked out the lush shades of green from both the dress and the surrounding lawn.

With love,

  1. The dress is way too feminine for my liking but I adore the jewelry. You already know my love affair with dainty pieces so these are right up my alley.

  4. That dress is so perfectly delicate and feminine, it looks gorgeous on you and suits your fair hair especially well! I really love how the dress has a sense of whimsy to it as well, almost like you could see someone wearing it in a fairytale you know?

  7. That dress is gorgeous, and I think it suits you perfectly, really. I agree with The Sunday Mode, it seems whimsical, and I honestly can't stop thinking that you'd make a perfect Alice (in Wonderland, of course)!

  8. Your floral dress is so pretty and matches your hair colour so well! I think it is the perfect one for a croquet game. I have the same feelings about summer, so I try to enjoy every single moment of it as much as I can. I love winter, because of winter sports, but during the summer months life gets easier somehow.

  18. One week to your birthday! You must be excited! I love birthdays, I don't always feel like making a big deal about them and I don't always opt for a fancy celebration or overly social one, but every birthday usually makes me feel pretty good and I feel a sense of accomplishment every time...something akin to ' hey, I survived another year!'. Life deserves to be celebrated and birthdays seem such a lovely time to do it, it is a shame to miss on the opportunity. Speaking of all that, this dress is kind of an early birthday gift, right? What a gift it is!!!! I'm absolutely and utterly in love with the embroidery on this dress. It is so delicate and beautiful. I do embroidery myself and I'm pretty good if I may say so:)...no wonder that was the first thing I noticed. The dress has a lovely cut too. The colour and the material leave nothing to be desired. It really is the most perfect dress for a Summer day. On you it looks amazing. You look ravishing in this dress!

    Something about these photographs made me think about Alice in Wonderland. I'm a great fan of that book, so I can say I really enjoyed these photographs. The location is wonderful and the photographs turned out superb!!! Literally they look like they were taken from some editorial. Dreamy Summer days...I'm a big fan of Summer too, even if here the heat can get pretty extreme. The Summer will probably last for two more months here, so I'm not feeling nostalgic yet. I'm looking forward to Autumn though. That is one of my fav seasons.
