As soon as I noticed this Rock my Vintage crochet lace dress I was absolutely smitten and couldn't stop thinking about how perfect it would be for warm summer days paired with my favourite denim. This dress makes for the perfect wardrobe ensemble, as it can easily be worn for day and transformed for the evening with a pair of heels or even the mules I've opted for to give a really chic finish to your outfit.
Summer really inspires me and gives me a creative boost to play around with different fabrics and styles and this one works for both a feminine look and it also comes with a slight grungy twist with the distressed denim. This dress is the perfect timeless piece with its classic black finish (which works for all occasions) and beautiful floaty fabric with a delicate crochet lace finish and circular embroidered hemming. It's a stunning piece and something I will continue to wear for years to come for all sorts of occasions. I just adore the deep V neckline of this piece, as it really accentuates femininity with highlighting the collar bone and chest, but in a more subtle way that you can get away with wearing this for casual events.
I opted for distressed denim over this piece to give a more grungy vibe and love the look of this J Brand piece for its long sleeves and distressed detailing throughout. I actually picked this up in an oversized fit for wearing over more fitted pieces to work with different shapes and love how it looks with this lace dress, I think the colour of this denim jacket was the main focal point for adding it to my wardrobe as it's a subtle pink that works great for summer against more neutral tones to add some character to my outfits.
What excites me most about this dress, is it's beautifully fitted silhouette but the fact it also contains a flirtatious flare to the bottom of the dress, for a chic floaty finish for the summer months. I paired these Quay Australia sunnies with this outfit as I love the pink hues against the all black and my J Brand denim jacket, and find they work into this outfit seamlessly for the day.
Finishing the outfit off, I went with these chic Ellie Goulding Star Collection faux mules from Deichmann and love how well they go with this outfit for warmer days and evenings. They fit really snug and just feel super comfortable to wear for hours on end. I'm literally blown away by these and can't even get over the low price point for such great quality materials used and the minimal design works ever so well with everything in my wardrobe. These are definitely a must have this season for day and evening and I recommend you grab a pair pronto....
Have you been rocking mules this season??
