Louche at JOY the Store: Secondary Shades

JOY The Store Louche floral printed dressI've been fairly quiet of late thanks to an impossibly relaxing week or so spent in the Lake District; long walks followed by hearty meals and vice versa.  However, once again I've returned home to an abundance of sunshine and yet another gentle reminder that summer is still holding on.  I mentioned last month that I'd most likely be flip-flopping between clinging onto summer and embracing the upcoming Autumn and well, I suppose this post is evidence of exactly that!  And so, as a final farewell to bare arms and sun-kissed skin (yeah, I'm practically translucent come winter), I've popped on this gorgeous floral printed dress from JOY The Store to walk through some of this season's most beautiful heather.

Floral printed poly-taffeta dress by Louche
Louche dress on fashion and personal style bloggerThis stunning navy and pink poly-taffeta dress by Louche is pretty much turning me into a human heart-eyed emoji; I adore the combination of 50s inspired fitted bodice, full skirt silhouette and bold floral print.  There's something very 'head out for a picnic and pick up flowers on your way home' about it, y'know?  I've browsed British fashion and lifestyle brand JOY The Store before, though this has been my first introduction to Louche, and I've been instantly converted - consider me a super-fan!  Speaking of which their new collection is now available, and I'm already swooning over corduroy shift dresses, frill-hemmed tops and front-pleated skirts...

If I could surround myself in rows upon rows of heather every day of my life, I absolutely would.  Though in the meantime, I'm happy to keep stumbling across the various other flora out there waiting to be discovered.  Speaking of which, make sure to catch up on my Bruges travel diary (part one and part two), before I start waffling on about the Lake District next week!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  45. You look gorgeous in that floral dress in the meadow with wild flowers. So dreamy! I love the classic 1950s style and how you've styled it with modern accessories, like your beautiful chunky-heeled sandals. Thanks for the inspiration! XO

  46. wow, what an amazing dress! Such a statement item! You're a vision of elegance and beauty in this floral dress. You're right about that 'pink the flowers on the way home' vibe...and somehow I imagine this would be the perfect item for seeing horse races or strolling around beautiful parks and gardens. There is something very dressed up about this dress, but it is still perfect for day time. One has to love a dress that is so versatile.

    Another thing that caught my eye when it comes to this look are those fabulous sandals. I'm a big fan of wooden heels and those look so cute. Amazing pair of summer sandals for sure. They also seem quite comfy, which is always a plus and especially so if one loved walking, right? We need to make the most out of these warm and sunny days. I make it a point to spend as much time outdoors as possible, but I must admit that some days I just don't feel like getting out...it must be Autumn creeping into me, despite the warm weather and high temperatures.

    Have a marvellous weekend!!!!

  50. I really like how the floral print is against that navy color, it looks so gorgeous and makes the dress suitable for that transitional time between seasons. The silhouette of the dress is so flattering and so pretty!

  60. Ah such a gorgeous dress! And it is the perfect choice for this setting. Yeah here in NY the sweltering summer has never left so far the first week and a half of September has been disgustingly hot. I am officially over it.

  61. I'm a big fan of Louche and Joy the store in general, having them featured a few times last summer on my blog! They have quite unusual and quirky pieces and I like that many still have not heard of Joy The Store. It's a wonderful place for shopping on the HS, though a bit pricey sometimes.
