The Look: Sandy Dresses & Sandy Shores

nude beach dress

 Kick off your heels and wander barefoot along the sun-kissed, sandy shores.

Hitting my sandy habitat in this easy-breezy trapeze dress, topped with lashings of natural stone jewellery.

Breezy beach days and trapeze dresses may not go hand in hand for some, but with this dress, it's a total exception. The over-sized cut and classy length ensures that any sudden gusts aren't met with a Marilyn Monroe style flash, and, believe me, none of the beach go-ers were craving that cheeky glimpse of my behind! (At least I hope)

As you know, I am a self-confessed fake tan addict, and I probably use as much product as half the cast of bloomin' Geordie Shore. But, it's all about the application process; this ensures that you look more Daisy Duke and less Donald Trump. But I'm going off on a tan-gent.... this nude-tone is perfect for showcasing a faux sun-kissed glow. When shopping for your own nude toned dress, I suggest trying out slightly different shades to see which is that perfect fit to your skin tone. 

I topped off the look with an overdose of stone jewellery from online retailer eManco*. I have a total obsession with anything marble at the moment, so this cuff duo and ring really gave me literal heart eyes. I mixed in some blue stones for a mix and match vibe and brought out the blue a little bit more with my printed clutch. When styling a nude dress, I think it's important to bring out little pops of color to stop it looking too washed out. Plus; these turquoise tones were totally made for days next to the sea.

If you saw my post 'Pastels in paradise', you would have seen my cheeky DIY choker hack. I've tied this scarf like a choker too, as lashings of jewellery isn't enough accessories for Rach! Over accessorizing say whaaaat? Don't think that term exists when it comes to my style!!!

P.S. I have a fake tan FAQ post in the pipeline. Got any fake tan mishaps or questions? Pop them in the comments below and I shall answer!

  12. That is a lovely dress, although my favourite part of your outfit has to be the scarf around your neck, it works so well styled like that and is a great combination of colours with the dress and jewellery :)
