There is nothing fresher than wearing crisp white in summer, especially when you have a glowing tan. Thank you Ageless Faces for always doing my tan so beautifully!

'What I am Wearing' Summer 2019 Edition - Elegant in White from Off The Rails Fashionista

This elegant white cotton anglaise dress from Desray has such a pretty feminine feel. You can wear it with a white slip underneath, however I would suggest substituting the white slip for a nude/beige colour in order for the anglaise design to pop out more.

I teamed this stunning number with a tan leather wrap belt from Collab Design; one of the designers stocked at Smitten. I’ve then finished off the look with a gorgeous tan leather heel and tan bag from Julz shoes. Don’t forget that you can throw on a denim jacket to keep out the early morning chill.

Here, I’m channelling the safari look in this fabulous linen outfit from Habits with white linen cullote pants and khaki green shacket. Linen as a fabric is huge this summer and has a sophisticated “out of Africa” feel, which keeps you cool throughout the warmer weather.

I’ve teamed the outfit with a leather belt from Madison Boutique which gives the look an edge, as does the animal printed sliders from Julz Shoes. Lastly, I’ve added a stylish pair of sunglasses from Select Sunglasses to complete the summer safari look.

A white dress in summer is what a black dress does for winter; it is an essential in every woman’s wardrobe. This pretty summery linen tunic dress from Habits is super comfortable and elegant, and can be worn on various occasions.

I’ve teamed the dress with a simple pink gold leather belt from Collab Design (stocked at Smitten), which shows off the waistline beautifully. I’ve then paired a similar colour shoe; the Fran slider from Julz Shoes, to the look and a black leather handbag from Julz Shoes to add a bit of contrast. Lastly, I’ve added a long chunky necklace from Poetry to give a bit of character to the outfit.
