Style Theory: In the summer I always reach for black dresses, they look great against sunkissed skin, are super easy to style and look chic. I love a plain black dress on holiday, it looks cool and understated and can match with every accessory you pack with you, team with flats or heels anything goes..

This Marks and Spencer pure silk dress is one of those great summer dresses, it hangs beautifully on, is wonderfully cool and can be worn for both day and evening. I sized down one size, it is a little neat on the upper arms but fine, I think it looks better a neater fit than too big. The shirt dress design means you can undo the buttons, go a little more risqué on holiday or wear over leather leggings or jeans in the Autumn. The brilliant thing is that it is machine washable (at 30degrees) which is so much better than the normal dry clean only on silk!

For a daytime look I paired it with these incredibly comfy sandals, they are leather, really flattering on ankles and look great with both dresses and jeans. I took my normal size in them, think I may have to get the tan version too!

This cute straw bag caught my eye, love the word 'Happy' embroidered on the front (because I love a holiday so it would be true!) It has fabric with a pull tie at the top to keep all my things inside safe and with the additions of pink and yellow handles and tassels it brightens the all black outfit up..

For evenings just add a pair of heels and clutch..

Such a chic dress for evening, it just kind of drifts from daytime to evening wear in one easy move.. The dress is heavy enough silk that it hangs beautifully and floats as you walk.

The shoes are amazing on, I am completely smitten with them, super sparkly, surprisingly comfortable for such high heels and the ankle strap flatters legs and keeps the shoes on..

There is nothing better than sparkly shoes to add some glamour to an outfit. This dress will be coming with me on my holiday to Spain in July (so so looking forward to it)

Are you a fan of black dresses and outfits in the summer, I guess I just think as the sun is out and there is loads of colour around I don't need to wear so much colour, nature does it for me! In the winter however give me all the colour!

Thanks so much for reading, until next time Fran xxx
