Throughout the first few years of my career, I wore mostly black. I still mostly reach for neutral items for their wearability and longevity, but every so often I’m drawn to something printed. This floral Olivia dress by RUBY is one such item. Ever since I saw it in store, I knew it would fit right in with my wardrobe. It’s 100% silk, floor-length and falls perfectly to the floor. I love dressing it down with heeled boots (the ones pictured are from Mi Piaci) and my army green coat, especially as we enter the cooler months here in New Zealand. It’s also beautiful worn underneath a leather jacket. And I know it’ll be equally perfect for spring weddings paired with neutral heels or sandals. I don’t know about you, but I’m not about buying pieces that only last a season, I want clothes I’ll wear for years to come.
Are you more of a statement shopper or do you opt for blacks, greys and other neutrals?
