These past few weeks were probably the last chance we had to get summer out of our systems. Much like the dress in my previous outfit post, this one usually gets worn during this transitional season.
Silk is too flimsy to wear in winter as a single layer, quarter sleeves and collar make it too hot during summer, but it is just perfect for autumn and spring.
Oh, and excuse the wrinkles. Wearing a seatbelt while driving does to clothes that I'm afraid. Still, always wear a seatbelt guys, it's totally worth the wrinkly dress.
Navy blue silk dress, MASSIMO DUTTI. Purple necklace, TOI&MOI. Purple peep-toes, ZARA.
BTW, these photos were taken at the bloggers' preview of Marks&Spencer's Britain's Leading Ladies campaign that launched earlier this season. You can probably tell by seeing us all trying on coats over bare legs and sandals.
It might have been a bit too early to snug a coat from the collection back then in mid-September, but having recently paid a visit at the Marks&Spencer store in Ermou, I saw that some of the pieces - like the navy blue bouclé coat and the red pea coat - are still available. If you see your perfect winter coat up there, better hurry up. They won't get restocked.
