Catching the last rays! Boutique by Jaeger Layla daisy silk print playsuit


I can’t believe how fabulous weather we have been having here in London in September. As I have not put my summer wardrobe away just yet, here is my most likely, last glimpse into a proper summer outfit you would wear on a sunny day out with friends or to an evening party.

If you are planning to do a floral print, make sure it is ditsy and make sure it is daisy – this gorgeous and girly Boutique by Jaeger Layla daisy silk print playsuit ticks all the boxes, clean and contemporary lines combined with the playful print will get you stand out from the crowd.

Boutique by JAEGER is the edgy and cool sister of the British heritage brand Jaeger. I love JAEGER’s timeless cuts and smart tailoring for the office but if you are after an offbeat yet classic look with an eclectic edge Boutique by JAEGER is the brand to go to.

I styled the playsuit with this cute waist-accentuating L.K. Bennett Selina taupe belt and pin-perfecting Zara combined suede ankle sandals with golden metallic stiletto heel. I must say, the gold heel tone plates bring about a certain je ne sais quoi!

They are both eternally cool and stylish. This season, I am very much in love with the ankle strap heels, from my favourite Alexander Wang to Stuart Weitzman to Guiseppe Zanotti and to ZARA, there is something liberating and ultra chic about them. Create a tousled hair look and off you go!

I accessorised my ensemble with the MALLARINO Mercedes gold-plated filigree earrings. These intricate drop earrings by the Paris based label are hand made using the ancient technique of filigree where each piece is hand sawn from gold plated metal into a multitude of embellished shapes!
