FMM40 STYLE | SUMMER EVENT DRESSING (PART 1)




A N Y O N E  F O R  T E N N I S ?



Summer can have the event invitations rolling in weddings, christenings, garden parties, a day at the races, tennis or cricket and what to wear can cause a little stress to say the least. 

Don't stress ..... I am here to help with a little advice and a few of my top tips and finds. 

As Wimbledon starts on Monday and I am going ..... (imagine me doing a little jig because I am right now as I am writing this) first day and tickets for centre court! So, for my first of summer event dressing we will look at what I plan to wear to one of Britain's most prestigious sporting events of the summer - Wimbledon. 

As the players don their whites so will I  .... not literally, but in the form of a pretty white cotton dress by Isabel Marant Etoile, I purchased a few months back with funds from an eBay wardrobe clear out. A white breezy cotton dress is perfect for a day at the tennis, when I look back at all of Kate the Duchess of Cambridge's Wimbledon outfits my favourites have been her white ones, the Alice Temperley sundress, the Alexander McQueen knitted dress and the gorgeous Zimmerman white broidery anglaise dress spring to mind. 



SHOP MY FAVOURITE WHITE DRESSES PERFECT FOR A DAY AT THE TENNIS





That Ganni seersucker striped dress is just dreamy, it has sold out most places, but it is still available here and in the sale! The polka dot number from Rixo is super cute and Pandora Sykes has recently been spotted wearing it and looking totally adorable.  I haven't shopped in Karen Millen for years, but this and this look up my street and would be perfect for Wimbledon. 

When picking a dress for Wimbledon always have in mind if and what light weight jacket would look good with it, in case the weather isn't on your side (my jacket on standby is my denim jacket .... I plan to do a Kim Murray if the weather turns). Other good jacket options are a light weight trench or a blazer which look super stylish when worn perched on your shoulders, this one is a great option. 

To finish your look off you will need the perfect accessories and I am not talking about the strawberries and champagne. Firstly, you need shoes that will be comfortable, a little kitten heel, a block heel sandal or an espadrille wedge would all be perfect. The above dresses would all look fabulous with an on-trend basket bag, or a designer cross body bag for a little uplift. Make sure you are not squinting when watching those backhanded return of serves so sunglasses are a must and top your whole look off with a classic panama hat, this one from a man's department is my top tip, very expensive looking!



SHOP THE PERFECT ACCESSORIES





A LWD is perfect for many summer occasions all expect a wedding of course ... plus they look perfect on holiday giving you cost per wear. 

Fingers crossed that this gorgeous weather continues and I don't need the backup jacket
