Summer in the city
Summer’s in full swing and I’ve arrived in Miami for some time soaking up the sun and exploring with friends and family. While here, I’ll need a holiday wardrobe that covers all the bases: an elegant dinner dress, the perfect date-night look and a dress that can be worn just about anywhere, so here’s what I packed…
As soon as I saw this dress, it caught my attention. It’s vibrant, fun and a great choice for summer. It’s perfect for Miami, a city that welcomes and embraces colour all year-round. If you’re headed on holiday, pack this dress to serve two functions: dress it down with flat sandals and a plain beach bag to walk the town, or dress it up for dinner – I wore it with my go-to evening clutch and strappy heeled sandals. When styling this dress, it should take centre stage, so avoid statement accessories.
GET CHRISTIE'S LOOK
I look for versatility when I shop. If I can style a piece more than three ways it gets a big “yes!” from me. This dress works well as a vacation or dinner dress, but I could also wear it to work and for more formal occasions. It all depends on how it’s styled.
For dressier occasions grab your heeled espadrilles, or strappy heeled sandals for a more formal event or night out, and pair with a beach bag or clutch.
This beautiful shirt and skirt combination works just as well as separates, making them both an amazing investment. Together they’re perfect for date night – I’ve styled them with strappy heeled sandals and a suede scalloped clutch. It’s an elegant and stylish look that shows just the right amount of leg.
