SUGAR, DARLING?

A City Break Adventure Outfit for the Modcloth Uniquely You Campaign


Right now as the weather is fine and sunny I'm daydreaming of jumping on a plane and heading somewhere in Europe for a city break. Naturally this daydream also involves a fabulous outfit fit for a day's exploring, full of shopping, coffee shop breaks and sightseeing. 

I've put together a board showcasing my perfect outfit for such a day using the ever eye catching colour scheme of red, white and blue against the classic styling of the Vivacious and Vibrant Dress in Noir which is currently available at Modcloth. It's such a lovely shape with its sexy cut away neckline against the ever flattering and cute skater style base with a nice full skirt. The adorable little cap sleeves really float my boat too, how sweet!


I'm a sucker for laser cut out detailing and love the way cobalt blue looks with my bleach blonde hair so these shoes immediately jumped out at me, they have a nice chunky heel and ankle strap too so I bet would be comfy to boot. I decided to team them with a matching coloured bag as I'm a fan of the old fashion rule of always matching your shoes to your bag, this one looks like it would hold all my shopping trip essentials too like my purse, phone, camera, bottle of water and any trinkets I might find in the little shops I venture in to.

Naturally I had to have some red lippy with me and on days where you'll be rushing around you need something that will stay put and not need re-touching every five minutes, so up steps Limecrime's Red Velvet Velvetine to the rescue - it's a liquid that dries to a matte finish and stays put for hours on end. Lovely stuff. To set off the red lips I've added a super cute red rose necklace and some kawaii-tastic heart shaped sunnies, then to echo the white in the waistband of the dress I'd finish the outfit with a white floral headband and a lovely lacey fan should the heat get too much for me - oh mercy!

So what do you think of my outfit? I'm off to Bruges in a few months and although it will likely be a little colder by then I'd love to get myself something similar to wear while adventuring with my little sis!

Don't forget to head over to Modcloth to take a look at their other lovely dresses, I'm planning on doing an order soon as I've spotted so many frocks and shoes that I've just fallen in love with!
