I think I say this about every outfit set I do but for now, this is one of my favourites. A lot of the looks I've previously done are quite busy with colours and prints, so I thought I'd tone it down with a neutral summer look. Nudes, browns, plus my two favourite colours, pink and gold! I just think they look so elegant together with the rich and soft tones.

The dress from New Look is a cream lantern style with an all over floral lace design and scooped neckline. It's fitted at the waist with tiny pleats to create a voluptuous, flared waistline. I have added a chocolate brown plaited belt to add to the cinched in waist look, but also to break up the all the light neutrals. I have mentioned this floral crown from Camden Flowers many times before, but I just love the pastel pink flowers and the shimming gold leaves. To bring in some more of the brown tones, I have added a pair of suede brown wedges, which of course look perfect with a pair of little white socks. This is such a great look for the summer or for say, garden parties or weddings. You can completely substitute the look by swapping the wedges for a pair of white Converse, and the gold accessories for simple tonal jewellery, like purples or oranges.

The bag from ASOS is a nude quilted across body bag with a gold clasp and a plaited chain strap. I love the simple elegance it brings to the outfit and how it can be worn styled up or down. I didn't want the outfit to be too matchy-matchy so I have gone with these three different styles of nail paints all from Barry M. The first is Pink Silver Glitter; an all over glitter paint, made up of tiny specks of glitter. The second is Vanilla; a matte paint in a light brown grey shade. The third is Lychee; a gelly paint in a caramely nude shade. These are great all over colours or for french manicures to create a sophisticated, flawless look. The perfume not only has the gold and pink colour palette, but is a beautiful summery fragrance. It's the new Candy Florale by Prada. As the name suggests it's a floral, feminine scent, but if you prefer something really sweet, go for the original Prada Candy.

As I've already mentioned, gold and pink are my favourite combination and this has completely come out in the accessories. The earrings and bracelet look as though they come in a set, but with much deliberation and checking back on order histories, they have actually come from two different shops. Just goes to show how much I love to keep things constant. The gold heart earrings from River Island may look big, but they just adorn your ears with beautiful pink and clear gemstones. The bracelet from ASOS also features the gemstones linked together with gold extensions. The gold bow ring from Lipsy is embellished with tiny multicoloured gemstones, brings shimmer and also works with the chosen nail paints. The necklace is a cute little envelope with an engraved design and pink rose. A sweet piece to add to the plain neckline of the dress.
