Neutral Fluidity & Powerful Pastels: Reiss SS12 (Erin Dress)

Earlier in the week I introduced you, Blog Reader, to the 2012 fall / winter collection from Reiss.  Back in the present day, the Reiss summer collection is filled with powerful pastels, clothes to take you from poolside to party and occasion-wear from fun to formal as well as more relaxed affairs.

I love this Erin dress from Reiss.  Not for a while has something so light and airy stolen my heart.

It has a beautiful flowing style with lines in all the right places to enhance the female silhouette.  With the addition of a slit each side of the skirt it moves with a wonderful fluidity…

A hint of geometry and an art deco feel perhaps give this dress a little retro appeal.  Here I’m wearing the dress with my Raj bracelet from JewelMint. I found it quite difficult to know how to accessorize this dress, so all suggestions are welcome!

To me this is a sweet summer dress.  It also reminds me of my recent trip to Turkey, where the colours were light and sunny and there was adventure in the air.  I felt very happy to spend some time away from Manhattan and have an adventure…. I’m already dreaming of the next one, Blog Reader :-)

Have a lovely weekend Blog Reader! xo
