Summer Stripes

Summer Stripes

A perfect nautical combination; stripes, sea, blue and red!

The Durban Marina is such a beautiful place to see, and with the gorgeous weather we had this past weekend, we decided to head down there and enjoy the view of the yachts.

Since I was feeling summery and nautical, I decided to wear my new GAP striped maxi dress.

I love this dress! It’s so easy-breasy and makes for the perfect dress to take with you on holiday! It can be dressed up with a pair of heels and layered jewellery, or dressed down for a Sunday afternoon with flats and a bold pair of sunnies.









This dress can easily be worn entirely on it’s own, however, I wanted to give it a little more!

I dressed it up with a nude plaited leather belt. Instead of looping the belt through the buckle, I just wrapped it around and let the buckle hang loose. I’ve never worn anything like this before, and I quite liked the way such a simple detail changed the look entirely.



To finish off this outfit, I wore my two tone bag (which had the perfect contrast of red and nude), simple flats with a rope detail and hearts, my roped bracelet and picking up on the nautical theme with blue nails and red toes.

I also wore my fabulous Versace sunglasses that add to the “sea” theme perfectly. Don’t you just love the starfish bling on the temple?!
