Today, while scrolling through the latest clothes on net-a-porter.com (where else would I be looking…), I found myself being drawn to the beige, white and blue colours that reminded me of my love for the Mediterranean.
DOLCE & GABBANA
You can’t get any more Mediterranean than Italy, and Dolce & Gabbana do not disappoint with their homeland inspired crystal and cameo, pasta clip on earrings that just exude Italian luxury.
MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
They do not joke when they call this clutch oversized, and I love it all the more for that reason. This large clutch is perfect for dinner out with friends, with enough room to fit all your emergency makeup as well other essentials; as well as keeping in theme with the Mediterranean. Wear this with just about anything, from a mini or maxi skirt to flared or skinny trousers for an effortless cool.
RALPH LAUREN BLACK LABEL
I am in love with this sand, milky coffee coloured satin-trimmed twill jacket. The tailoring is perfect and I can imagine walking home after a night out with the girls, with this vision of loveliness draped on my shoulders. Not only this, but it reminds me of my black blazer (https://byalicexo.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/saturday-night/) that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. Wear with a loose fitting tank a la Kain or Alexander Wang, a pair of black trousers or black mini skirt, and the Maison Martin Margiela clutch mentioned above.
This Dione gown is an exclusive to net-a-porter.com, and looking at it, you can see why. It looks like something out of ancient Greece, which is not surprising that new net-a-porter designer Sophia Kokosalaki, is indeed Greek. Perfect for a summer wedding in a Greek olive garden, or for a summer party, you can’t go wrong with this simple yet oh so elegant gown.
There is nothing I love more than a six inch killer heel with a platform, and these pumps kick all of the boxes. Need a pair of killer shoes to go with your Sophia Kokosalaki gown? Look no further than these Giuseppe Zanotti satin platform peep toe pumps. The ivory colouring is perfect and you really couldn’t ask for a better shoe. If weddings aren’t quite your thing, or like me and you’re not getting married, then why not team these with a white mini dress for the summer party season, and not forgetting your oversized cluth.
With summer just around the corner, the idea of the Mediterranean sounds even more appealing. Check out net-a-porter’s website to see what else is new today. Happy Monday.
