Weekly Wish List: It’s Time for a Garden Party

How to Dress for a Garden Party


How to Dress for a Garden Party

Cotton tie shirt by Oasis | Velvet handbag by Dune London | Lilac lace top by MICHAEL Michael Kors | Silk maxi skirt by Diane von Furstenberg | Linen blazer by M&S | Hoop earrings by Rachel Jackson London | Straw hat by L.K.Bennett | Flamingo plate by Yvonne Ellen | Croquet set by Sunnylife | Print midi dress by Self Portrait


This week I’m in a very celebratory mood! I’m not sure why, but all of a sudden I have the desperate desire to host a garden party. I’d get dressed up in Self Portrait’s star-print dress – accessorised with L.K.Bennett’s straw sunhat, of course. Serve afternoon tea on Yvonne Ellen china (I love the playful designs), and then challenge my friends to a game of croquet.

So, naturally, all of the items mentioned above have made it onto this week’s wish list.

Also catching my eye is Diane von Furstenberg’s silk maxi skirt, which I’d style with Oasis’ tie-front cotton shirt. And I’ve also fallen head-over-heels for Marks and Spencer’s linen blazer. The double-breasted design is so timeless, and it will become the hardest working piece in your spring/summer wardrobe. Seriously: wear it to weddings, pair it with matching shorts as an alternative to a summer dress, throw it together with jeans… There are so many possibilities!
