Oceanic Whites

Wearing: Supre zip back crop, Bec & Bridge 'Koi' denim skirt (via Stylemilk), PeepToe 'Goddess Isis' necklace, PeepToe Shoes 'Miss Kourtney' pumps, Samantha Wills for the McGrath Foundation bracelets

Summer calls for whites, crops, and prints that mimic oceanic trends, and this outfit ticks all the boxes. Chromolux is probably my favourite collection from Bec & Bridge to date; and this skirt in the exclusive Fashion Week pink print colourway makes my heart do cartwheels. I'm absolutely obsessed; the beautiful print teamed with the rose gold detailing of the zip is my idea of perfection. The stretch denim fabric means it's also super comfortable, and hugs you in all the right places. It's like it's begging not to be taken off (not that I ever want to!)

Normally I'm not one to go for a fully-fitted outfit (opting for an oversized tee if sporting a short or fitted skirt) but this crop from Supré is the perfect companion for the B&B skirt. The contrast in fabrics adds a textural element to the outfit, and as I've detailed in other posts a longer length skirt can totally accommodate a crop (without being over 'revealing'). This crop also has an exposed metal zip through the back, which is a great added detail.

I've teamed with my favourite white and rose gold accessories from PeepToe, which complete the all-white look for a beautifully chic overall appearance. The addition of the beautiful Samantha Wills for the McGrath Foundation bracelet set injects a bright infusion of colour into the look, and mimics the shades found in the skirt print (and also the stunning Balmoral backdrop!) All proceeds from these bracelets goes directly to supporting the immense and vital work of the McGrath Foundation, so not only do they look amazing they're also helping this amazing foundation support the women of Australia.
