On-the-Go Comfort

Summer Style Tropical prints
When there's loads to do (before having time off), I've said many times that for me comfort plays an essential role in the outfit choice of the day. So, my selection this time resulted in a convenient pull-on look, which obviously meant knitwear was going to join this colourful fashion concoction.

This is such a comfortable dress that I have always worn as a skirt. I decided to go back to this printed maxi, because of its versatility ... throw on a belt, and add a bright handbag, then the outfit easily becomes a summer casual ensemble!

Although, I only have two yellow colour handbags (I think), however nothing by far as luminous as this one! It's also quite roomy, and was appropriate for packing my snackbars, a pair of flats and exciting new reading material.

Summer to me signifies bright palettes, and cheerful hues. They aren't solely to liven up your spirits when worn, but those encompassing you as well! Between donning the tropical printed skirt and the yellow bag it wasn't at all difficult for me to put forth a smile walking happily down the street. You know the burst of joy when you wear happy colours, well it does a fashionista good.
    
 Wishing you all lovelies a beautiful weekend! Are you doing anything exciting?

    I'm sure it looks wonderful as a dress, but I really, really like it as a skirt. I think it's because you paired it with the purple tee that you belted. It just works so well to me!
