I have already expressed my love for Plümo in the past, but I have once again the occasion to gush over their selection of original and beautifully crafted pieces. Their newly launched Autumn Collection combines luxurious comfort, sophisticated natural lines and luxurious ethnic accessories.

It’s no secret that I love a bit of nautical-inspired fashion, so it was no surprised that I was instantly attracted to these lovely silk scarves. The only problem – choosing a colour!

With these lovely cream retro polka dot bow shorts, it would have been easy to create a cute pinup look with just a black or red top.

A favourite trick of mine is to pair a khaki pair of shorts or cargo pants with a soft pink top, frilly if possible – like the silk pink wrap top by Coast I featured a few days ago. A few chosen accessories complement the look to create a dressy day outfit, perfect for a lunch with the girls and a shopping session.

The first time I saw this Ikat Print Silk Maxi Dress, I thought it was absolutely stunning. This summer dress is now sold out from Warehouse‘s website, but ASOS apparently still has a limited number available in sizes 10 to 14, so you’d better hurry up if you want it!

PS: If the only thing stopping you from getting this dress is the lack of a good bra, make sure to check out my post on the best strapless bra on the market.
