The houses here always remind me so much of what I've seen of Newport, in Orange County in California on TV, with the luxurious, coastal home exteriors and neat landscaping. So I often feel like I need to dress the part in a classy look to match- all a breeze thanks to this outfit from Marks and Spencer and dainty jewellery pieces from Pandora.
Bodycon dresses that fit close like a glove and end all the way down to the knees, are one of the most elegant and understated wardrobe pieces in my opinion, as they really emphasise a feminine silhouette (plus the longer they are the taller they make you look!) With this one being striped and cotton fabric, you can throw on a pair of sneakers and have an instant sporty-chic winner perfect for daytime as well.
I've always had a great affinity towards British fashion brands, so I was excited to discover yet another one! Marks and Spencer have just recently started to offer shipping to Australia.

These pretty little jewellery pieces (heart necklace, bracelet and rings) are all from Pandora and complemented the pastel spring shades in my outfit perfectly. I'm really moving away from statement jewellery and embracing the subtle and elegant impacts dainty jewellery can make- don't you agree? :)
