22 // LRD and a lady's jacket and sandals.












Three Floor LOOK SEE dress, H&M jacket, Jeffrey Campbell Favor sandals, Céline Luggage tote

LATELY have had the strangest craving for little bright red dresses, and with translucent panels, geometric pleats and discreet cut-outs, the Three Floor LOOK SEE dress packs a sartorial punch. Maybe it's more appropriate for attending a pop concert or jumping up and down in at a summer festival (pleats = cheerleader), but throw on a light bouclé jacket and some lady-like nude braided sandals and you've got a look worthy of a light ladies' lunch or tea. Also, I'd decided that since it was my birthday, I could wear a special piece for the day and pile on with it a massive men's watch from my father and as much gold arm embellishment as I could stand.

Happy to get some sun and avoid exam revision, Andrea and I, in her words, "had a 'light' lunch at Balthazar before shooting, which for us meant a three course meal and a giant chocolate souffle". The Balthazar salad (haricots verts, asparagus, fennel, ricotta salata and truffle vinaigrette) made a refreshing starter - who doesn't adore asparagus and fennel? Both of us were tempted by the Coquilles St. Jacques, which was a dish of beautifully light and meaty scallops, and the amazing frothy chocolate soufflé to share with rich chocolate sauce completed our luncheon. Making a note to return to the original Balthazar when in New York in July.

Thank you to Andrea for taking these outfit shots; that was such a good birthday lunch.

P.S. Yes I am back to blunt bangs, and I have had my hair ombréd!

  1. Great outfit! I was also wondering what size you got your dress in - was thinking of getting it myself :)

    1. Hi! Sorry for the supremely late reply - I'm usually a UK8 and this is a UK10, so I did have to get it taken in at the sides! x
