Style Post: Vivid Blues and Sparkly Shoes!

Another day, another dress! I strive to live a bold, beautiful life, where I do what makes me happy and bring more light and positivity to the world along the way.

Danai Kadzere ASOS Dress Review

I'm not saying how I dress does that. It doesn't. But it's a fun way to remind myself that life is lovely and, even when it tests you, you must keep your chin up!

I also regularly make strangers smile with my colorful rainboots and bright pink umbrellas, and who doesn't want to inspire a smile on a dreary, rainy day in the city? We could all smile more and the world would be all the lovelier for it!

Kate Spade Sparkly Pink Shoes Review

Like the late Kate Spade, who designed the sparkly pink flats I'm wearing in this post (which happen to also be my current favorite shoes) I wish to leave a little sparkle wherever I go.

People have been calling me 'Diana' a lot lately and I choose to believe that that's because they see a bit of her charm in me, and not just because they're lowkey dyslexic.

This is an outfit fit for a proper tea, with scones and jam and clotted cream.

I know, I know. I have a problem.

But what's not to love about summer dresses?

They're light.

They're bright.

Affordable Summer Fashion

They twirl well.

They take two seconds to put on and you don't have to coordinate anything. 

They can be quite affordable (like this one from Forever 21).

There are so many different styles and they draw inspiration in fabric, print, pattern, and cut from so many different sources.
