With the weather in Cape Town finally heating up I find the best item to wear to keep cool, refreshed and stylish is hands down a dress.

'What I am Wearing' Summer 2019 Edition - Say Yes to a Dress from Off The Rails Fashionista

Look for fabrics that breathe and are natural like viscose, rayon, linen and cotton. They really are the best for keeping cool as opposed to man-made polyester. This one from Poetry is in a breathable viscose and is perfect to dress up for the office or worn casually with sneakers or flip flops.

I just love how fabulous this pattern looks. Patterns are always a winner for summer because they are fun and playful. I’ve gone with Poetry all the way for this look with my gorgeous slip on shoes and accessories.

A special thanks to Zampelli Hair Studio for making my hair look fabulous, Ezzie Hair & Make Up Studio for making my make-up look flawless, and Ageless Faces for giving me a gorgeous spray tan.
