Summer Shackets and Tea Dress Florals

Boyishly girly. How’s that for an oxymoron. We realised of late that is how we dress: not overtly ladylike/girly and not too mannish but somewhere nicely inbetween. Take these outfits for instance as the perfect example of what we are blinkin’ banging on about. A pretty girly dress and skirt, both flouncy and floral and could easily be styled up to be quite cute and girly but for us that would be a big no~no. We’d pretty much always style this kind of piece for that laid back London cool girl look we are striving for {yes we did just say that out loud} with something with a bit of a harder masculine edge.

Fugly shoes, check. Rock tee, check. Oversize shacketΒ check check check.

We are not sure when this type of sartorial juxtaposition in our wardrobes started but its been years, we won’t say decades as that makes us sound ancient, but it could be.

It’s a style that works for us and where we feel comfortable. Don’t get us wrong on off days we may venture over to the comfort of a more masculine look with jeans, trainers {albeit pink ones} and oversize shirts or swing to the feminine side and sex up a dress with some high heels and a pretty clutch but generally you’ll find us hanging out half way in-between.

These looks also feature 2 of our current Summer wardrobe staples that we think you should be adding to your shopping basket: the cute AF tea dress and super handy, what the hell did we ever do without it Shacket. As per, one is girly and one isn’t. Wear them both together for the sweet spot we strike for.

Sartorial pineapple and cheese, if you will.
