The VR Verdict X Storm

I'm all about easy dressing for Summer - pieces that look great with minimal effort and also keep you comfortable and feeling light in the heat. I recently picked up a few pieces at the Storm boutique, just off on Chapel St, which I've been sporting quite a bit recently, ever since the weather started heating up here in Melbourne...

Someone mentioned to me the other day that I haven't worn stripes on the blog in a hot minute. I thought they were insane so I checked insta for the last time I wore stripes and sure enough, it was 10 WEEKS AGO. So I'm so so so happy to be back styling stripes again. This full sleeve striped cotton dress from Storm is the perfect wardrobe basic for easy summer days. It's super easy and comfortable to wear, and I love the look paired with simple black accessories. Being from Melbourne, layering is a must - so I decided to tie a lightweight slightly oversized black cotton silk shirt around my waist (I'm wearing the white version in the next look - LOVE this shirt!) just to break up the stripes and also to add another layer just incase the weather takes a turn, as it does in Melbourne.

I love love love this look. Feather skirts have always been something I've wanted to add to my wardrobe, and I'm in love with this number from Storm. I was tossing up between the black version but so glad I went with the pale lilac, almost silver - I think it's perfect for when you want to dress in lighter shades for the warmer days.  Like I mentioned before, this basic cotton silk shirt has become one of my everyday staples. It's definitely one of those pieces that looks great with everything (e.g. torn denim and sandals or with black cigarette pants and a blazer).  

Once again, you can't go wrong with pairing an outfit back with simple black accessories!
