Outfit Post: Pineapple Party

Pineapple Maxi Dress

Can you dress up the same item to wear in both Britain and Barbados? Well that’s the question Debenhams asked me for their campaign #BritaintoBarbados and I didn’t make it easy for myself when I chose a full length, dark navy Maxi Dress. Duh. To be honest though, with weather like we’ve been having here in the UK, I’m pretty sure you’d have the same issues in either destination! The heat.

Fruit Accessories, Watermelon

Grapefruit Earrings

What better excuse than when you’re wearing a dress that covers you head to toe in pineapples, is there to dress yourself up like a fruit salad? So I picked out my brightest accessories for this dress – a skinny coral belt and a lime green cardigan. I also picked out corresponding fruit jewellery from my online shop and my absolute favourite necklace from Joy. All that’s missing is that holiday to Barbados ;)

Fruit Clothing, Fruit Trend

Let’s start with Britain: I wore this outfit to a barbecue at my Dad’s at the weekend, tonnes of family and friends were there and the weather was freaking glorious. My Dad is a glorified Butcher so there was more meat than you’d ever seen, endless wine being poured and hundreds of beers disappearing from the fridge. The cardigan only really came in handy when it rained for 10 minutes, we stayed outside under the veranda and chatted about babies. Don’t get excited.. we’re not quite there yet folks!

Summer Outfit

For Barbados, unfortunately(!), I couldn’t make it out there for a shoot so I had to imagine what it would be like. I ditched the cardigan and braided my hair in a lazy shoulder plait to keep it tamed and away from the pesky sea air. All accessories stand, obviously, except for a couple of extras: A cocktail with fresh fruit & fancy umbrellas and a golden sandy beach. Perf.
The best part is, you probably won’t go on holiday with the same people at your barbecue so no-one will know you wore the same outfit anyway!
