Melt mini dress -  Unif via Depop
lace up platform boots - H&M
Oh Ring choker - Stone Fox
Screaming Diva white sunglasses - Quay Australia
Liquid Sarcasm cross body bag - Skinnydip London

If I had to pick one item of clothing to encapsulate summer 2016, my choice would almost definitely be the slip dress. Everyone is wearing them right now, and in a variety of ways - they're the sort of piece that fit seamlessly into the wardrobes of everybody no matter what style they prefer, whether you are into super luxe dressing or more grungy fashion. I'm a huge fan of slip dresses but have always found it hard to find one that flatters my body type, what with me being fairly vertically challenged therefore running the risk of easy nip slip. I've definitely struck gold with this Unif number - I've had my eye on it forever but as it is unfortunately unavailable on the site, I've had to resort to frequent Depop checks to get my hands on it (which YAY I finally did). It's the most perfect dress for summer; light, easy to style effortlessly and most importantly it's super colourful and reminds me a bit of a Lush bath bomb. Because everyone wants to look like they're wearing The Experimenter, am I right? I've styled in here in typical Cara fashion with a choker, chunky boots - I've been featuring this pair on the blog since 2013 so they're basically my self appointed trademark shoe at this point - and, of course, a novelty bag. Now I'm off to go prance around pretending that I'm Courtney Love circa 1994. Naturally.
