It feels like summer is officially here, and isn’t that just wonderful!? This is my favorite time of the year, I am a summer baby and the sights and smells of this season, with flowers blooming everywhere is one of my most favorite things in the world. Spring and summer fashion also excites me SO much because I love dresses, skirts and pretty shoes in colorful colors and beautiful patters. Dresses are always my favorite item of clothing to wear, so it was exciting for me to collaborate with Poetry Stores to shoot some of their beautiful things from the summer range.
I am an avid fan of Poetry Stores and their gorgeous items, from homeware to fashion. They are well known for their dresses and you can always tell when a dress is from Poetry, there is just a certain style that the brand carries through all of their collections. Many of their items are locally sourced and made in the country (such is the case with these two beautiful items that I picked). The store concept appeals to sophisticated women who want beautiful clothing, footwear, accessories, bath and body, confectionery and homeware. Poetry has definitely become a destination for women who long for clothes that are not found on the shelves of stores everywhere, as all of their items are really unique and beautiful!
You can shop their summer range over here, and these were my favorite two items from the collection. I loved this tiered shirtdress because of the light fabric and the pretty print. It is perfect to wear on a hot summer day, whether you are going to work or to a relaxed picnic with friends. These sort of dresses are great to have in your cupboard, as you can wear them anytime, anywhere (also, the waistband is stretchy, so I love wearing them when I am going for a big lunch) ;).
The second item that I picked and loved is this green jumpsuit. You can dress it up with some gorgeous earrings and a pair of heels, or you can dress it down with a pair of white espadrilles and a straw hat. I also thought that this color palette would be perfect for a safari type of feel, or it could also work for a fun beach holiday- can you tell that I love versatility in my items?
Do not forget that over on my Instagram page I am giving away a R500 Poetry voucher, so hurry, hurry, hurry 🙂
