The Guest List EVE dress / H&M floppy hat / Sandals from Beijing
I’m obsessed with luxe neutrals and this striking, floor-sweeping maxi was the perfect daytime accompaniment to a balmy afternoon in an idyllic tropical nest hidden deep within the city. I like being exotic and the snakeskin print breathes sensuality into the dress, especially with the fabric slithering languorously around my ankles as I moved.
The dress blends beautifully with natural surroundings so I went ahead and paired it with minimal gold and marble jewellery for a subtle touch of tribal opulence, shielding my face from the harsh sunlight with a large floppy hat or sweeping my hair up into a relaxed topknot when the air got a bit too humid. It made for a wonderful transition piece later in the evening as well, when the beau and I went to see the sunset over pre-dinner cocktails.
EVE is without a doubt one of my most favourite selections from The Guest List so far and I foresee myself wearing it a lot more. On another note, connect with me on Instagram and come say hi — I’d love to hear your thoughts!
