Finding that Perfect Summer Dress

featuring Aqua Dining Sydney

Dress:  AliceMcCall Sunday Rose | Bag : Chanel boy | Earrings : Chanel  | Sunglasses: Quay Australia |Shoes : Chanel slingbacks


Everyone needs that perfect summer dress that you can wear season after season.  It has to be breezy, lightweight yet comfortable . I like to take these type of dresses on summer vacations as well so it also  has to be made of fairly manageable, wrinkle-free material. I am  glad that I found my favourite  Sunday Rose Dress from Alice Mc Call.



I love the puffy sleeves with the feminine lace details on this dress. It can be worn up or even draped  below the shoulders. Most of the time it naturally just falls off my shoulders, which I do not really mind. I am a huge fan of Alice Mc Call for a number of years now and I think their resort 2018 collection has some really stunning wearable designs. You can check out the collection here. If you are interested in sizing ,  I am usually a size AU6 in most Alice Mc Call dresses but with this particular style I had to size down to a AU 4. It has a pretty generous fit over the bandeau area but the length of it is just perfect. This design comes in several floral patterns and colours and I am currently eyeing the dusty peppermint piece here in a similar design but longer version. I will leave a link down below, which will be my top summer dresses wishlist from the brand




Mc Dougall Street, Kirribilli is usually flocked with tourists during the jacaranda season



Bag: Chanel Boy Bag | Shoes : Chanel slingbacks



Well, no outfit is complete without a staple pair of classic Chanel slingbacks. It is an oldie but such a goodie. I featured it in one of my very first posts here. I have worn it so much since I  purchased it so cost per wear is pretty good I say. It goes so well with everything and anything; casual jeans, dresses and even shorts. They give just enough of height without compromising too much on comfort.  If you are still thinking about getting them,  I think they are well worth it . There was a time a few years back when these shoes were so hard to get, but now you could walk into any Chanel store and be able to find these slingbacks in  your size. They are pretty true to size and I am usually a size 36.5 across the board for most designer heels. My favourite colour combo is definitely the classic beige with the black cap toe but they do come in an array of colours to choose from.

Yes I do love the fact that my metallic lilac Chanel Boy actually matches the jacaranda around me. Need I say more , its the perfect spring/summer bag. It is pretty lightweight and  I am able to fit the majority of my essentials in it. I do appreciate the  3 options you could wear the Chanel boy; which is crossbody, over the shoulder and also double up with both  shoulder straps. I must admit Chanel prices have risen so much  recently that it is almost ridiculous to purchase a brand new bag in store. You can easily find these bags for a lot cheaper  on reputable online stores such as The Real Real, Vestiaire Collective or Fashionphile. One of my favourite re-sellers is Sandiana from @timelessvOgue. I will leave the link to her page here.

I thought I might mix up food and fashion a little bit this time. We made our way to Aqua Dining after walking around the area. I have been here a few times now and this is definitely one of my top recommendations around Milsons Point. Hang around a little longer and you will find out why.


Aqua Dining Sydney


If you are looking for that perfect place to hang out and have lunch with an awesome view of Sydney harbour,  my pick would be Aqua Dining. On a sunny day like this , you get a completely unobstructed view of the harbour bridge while you dine!  The food is also nothing short of spectacular.



Oysters, freeze dried raspberries and white balsamic






This is definitely one of my favourite dishes. That is the moreton bay bug with chickpeas and mint. So fresh and full of flavour. Those oysters with raspberries on the top were also so amazing.  My favourite dessert was definitely the mango and pineapple dish. Love that coconut and lime sorbet!



I hope you enjoyed the post and thanks for dropping by. Would love to hear your feedback on your favourite go-to brands for summer dresses! See you in the next post:)
