    • Melissa's Moodboard - The Tropical Print

      With the sun still shining brightly it doesn't feel like Summer is ready to come to an end just yet! Celebrate by wearing your beachwear as day wear and wearing brights and pastels whilst you still can before the weather turns.

      This month Melissa takes time out to discuss the Tropical print with us. This was limited to beachwear only and this graphic print came in two striking shades, electric blue and mint green.
      If your holiday style leans towards something lose and flowing to take you from daytime to nighttime the Angelina Floor length Dress is the perfect showstopping yet easy to wear piece, or for a more classic style that is perfect to wear whilst going on excursions or even back home on a lovely summer's day, opt for the more sophisticated Lois Shirt Dress.
