The Perfect Black Summer Dress

It’s June. I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in four months! Apologies for the gap in posts but life has been pretty mundane. We’ve been in lockdown since November and so I haven’t been doing much aside from working, trying to stay active and testing out different recipes. Ontario is finally slowly opening things up again on Friday and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s to hoping it actually remains open so we can have a decent summer. Oh, and be able to wear all the clothes and shoes I have accumulated over the last year.

Joe Fresh Black Dress

First up, the most perfect black summer dress. It’s from Joe Fresh, currently on sale and well, you NEED it. It’s a linen blend so it doesn’t get super wrinkly, which I like. It has elastic cuffs making it versatile when it comes to styling whether you want an off-the-shoulder look or shoulders covered. I went for an off-the-shoulder look because it was extremely hot and I wanted to show off my favourite necklaces. The shorter one is from Missoma based in London, and the other is Melanie Auld based in Vancouver. I highly recommend both if you’re into gold-plated, dainty jewelry for everyday wear.

I was feeling fancy so I paired this dress with a pair of Bottega kitten heel dupes I bought from Nasty Gal last summer. They’re incredibly comfortable and pair well with a lot of my summer clothes. My Polène bag has been my go-to lately. The terracotta colour is just so flattering and incredibly wearable. And of course, no summer look is complete without a pair of signature sunglasses. I love my Kate Spade round sunnies! They’re super flattering and my go-to pick for sunny days.

I hope that wherever you are, you’re well.
