Street Art & Summer Dresses

Joe Browns Live A Colourful Life

How nice was the weather over Easter? On Friday I used the opportunity for a little stroll along Bankside in London. Though the walk along the Thames was jam-packed with people, everyone just looked really happy and truly enjoyed the gorgeous day full of warm sunshine and blue skies.

As soon as the first warm sunbeams come out, my natural instinct of summer kicks in and I'm literally all ready for the hot days - since living in the UK, you never know how much sunshine you'll get to enjoy, so I use to dress like it is already boiling hot. The spring sunshine can be misleading though, with mild temperatures in the day but come the evening it gets chilly and I wished I would have brought my winter coat along.

So this is 2016 and I have obviously not learnt from my previous history of dressing too casual and light for the early spring days. A quick look at the bright sky (where is my camera?) and an even quicker check for the temperatures (stuck my arm briefly out of the window waving, does somebody else do that, too?) made me decide to take out my latest addition to my wardrobe: a casual dress from Joe Browns.

The Floral Dress For Summer: Joe Browns

Joe Browns launched a new SS16 collection under the thriving motto "Live A Colourful Life". The new range of summer clothes features quirky pieces that burst with vibrant colours and energetic designs to bring a touch of colour to your wardrobe. 

I'm usually not so much into these loud and extravagant clothes, but this super cute floral dress from the Joe Browns dresses section has "summer" written all over it and I'm really happy it was gifted to me to share with you on Style Lingua. Have a look yourself, if you like my floral dress you'll certainly fall in love with the other cute skater dresses and casual dresses!

"Florals for spring? Groundbreaking" - would a Miranda Priestly say, but this one is just perfect. The print vibrant, girly and playful is fun, pretty and just the right amount of floral to me. Usually, floral dresses can easily diminish your look to a "small girl" effect rather than supporting you as a young woman who enjoys fashion. 

This summer dress is ideal for the hot days to come with its lightweight underskirt and flattering shape. It floats nicely around my legs and all I need now is a heatwave worthy of last year's amazing summertime.

I decided to style this little stunner with matching accessories in nude, as the subtle shades work in harmony with the dominant colours of the dress. Shoes and belt are both from New Look and bought last September for my Red Carpet Look at Cosmopolitan FashFest. There's a good chance those accessories are still available and I'm pretty sure the Accessorize clutch is too.

The Location: Bankside In London

Part of the "Live a Colourful Life" campaign brief was to choose the most colourful background possible. I knew exactly where I wanted to go for my shoot, as one of my favourite locations in London is this gorgeous graffiti art near the National Theatre. I've shot a few outfit posts here, as you may remember from Primark Eyelet Black Dress outfit or the Holly Fulton Magnum Necklace post.

The nearest station to see this street art gem is Waterloo and apparently, the area is quite rich with graffitis. There's a skate park nearby and Leak Street is another address if you're looking for an urban background for your OOTDs.
