Im having a bit of a Blanco/Miguelina crush at the moment. White on White is such a clean and fresh look to wear, I love swapping in cream or mixing it up with one dark colour. The dress Im wearing here is one of my favourite finds by designer Miguelina Gambaccini. Miguelina is a line of ultra feminine, romantic dresses & caftans. The line touches on Parisian with the embroidery anglaise & lace detailing.
The Miguelina collection is effortless , so easy to wear & easy to pack which is a must for me as I am always on the move! The best bit is, the dresses are really versatile. This is exactly what I look for in a great summer piece . Its got work whether heading to dinner or throwing it over a bikini. In Miguelina’s own words, the dresses can take you “from day to evening , city to beach , Ibiza to New England”
I love to accessorise my clothes to dress it up or keep it low key. Here I am wearing Miguelina’s “Bridgitte” dress with Henri Bendel Clutch, H&M belt , accessorised with a mix of layered jewellery.
