DUBAI / STYLE
By Natalya Kanj / Photography Reem Kanj
The forthcoming of Summer is usually a time when my mood is instantly better, I look forward to birthday celebrations, (I’m a July baby) and can’t wait to plan my holidays with the girls. But, since moving to Dubai, it’s got a tiny bit of a negative connotation since Summer in the Middle East usually welcomes 40-degree heat and insane humidity levels.
Right now, I’m shopping like a mad woman, on the hunt for any pieces that can leave me feeling cool, looking good and get me excited for my favourite season again. As kate spade new york rightly says #vacationisastateofmind.
Cue this adorable island stamp print kate spade new york dress. Dress and adorable, two words you don’t commonly associate with my style, but my New Year’s resolutions for wearing more colour, and wearing more dresses is actually happening and I’ve found a piece that ticks off all the musts in my sartorial choices for the next few months. This easy dress is eminently adaptable. With sunglasses and a pair of flats, it’s perfect for day; switch to heels and add a few sparkling gems to create an evening-out ensemble.
If you’re anything like me and find wearing colourful dresses or dresses, in general, a little out of your comfort zone, add a bit of a cool factor to it with a casual spin, sneakers, a backpack ( love this sleek, 90s-inspired one from kate spade new york ) and a messy ponytail will do the trick instantly.
Proudly in collaboration with kate spade new york.
