A day out on the yacht's called for a cute little outfit so I thought I'd get my sailor on in some navy in this to die for TFNC dress and pair it with some pop's of colour. It's not often I come across a dress that is just everything I want being so picky which is probably why I have put this on at every given chance because I just adore the structure, sophistication and of course the waist cinching belt. While out shopping with my best friend before heading away I had a crazy realisation moment while I was helping her pick the perfect ball dress. I always knew wearing colour was a bit of an avoidance for some people but I didn't realise just how much of an issue it was until I suggested the red dress and got the "no way. I always stay away from any colour dresses! I don't want to draw attention to myself" response while proceeding to pick up the black option. This really opened my eyes to the fact that this is a real fear among women which is why I decided to put an outfit together that could help show how you can incorporate colour without jumping in the deep end.
First, I think it's always best to know your palette! we all have colours that we just don't like on our self so knowing what you would like to see yourself in helps steer you towards that while shopping for an outfit. Also, start with the details! you don't have to go and grab the brightest yellow dress you can find and wear that colour head to toe, instead accessories. When I found out that luxury British designer Lamb 1887 were bringing out a collection of bright handbags I just had to see for myself and fell in love with the orange one. Navy isn't the most daring colour, but adding a bright handbag and some matching court heels instantly lifts not only the outfit but your mood. Finally, I can not stress enough that it is absurd for any woman to feel awkward or embarrassed if she is wearing something that SHE LIKES! I often get asked "don't you feel weird being dressed up, I'm too scared to wear my best bits." If we all went out dressed up, feeling our best and not shying away then nobody would be looking at anyone in a strange way as we'd all be fabulous together! so why don't we try that? instead of judging! okay? the world will eb a much better and brighter place :).
