When I first saw this striking red dress with its black and white striped contrast hem on Instagram a short while ago, I knew it would be perfect to wear on holiday. The dress gods must have been smiling on me, because the lovely people at Lagom contacted me and asked If I’d like to choose something from their website. Several styles caught my eye, but this was still my favourite.
The Lagom Allegra Contrast Hem Dress
This dress is named Allegra and years of piano lessons mean I know this is the term used to describe fast, happy music. The contrast hem with its black and white stripes is of course reminiscent of a keyboard too. It drapes and catches the breeze beautifully and I want to swish and swoosh and dance in it. Therefore, this happy, vibrant dress is perfectly named.
My shoes are from by Lotus, a brand that has a fabulous selection of footwear and handbags. I wear their footwear regularly so you might remember my leopard print boots, the houndstooth check ankle boots or the nude pumps with multi-coloured wedge that I wore earlier this year. I chose these black glimmer strappy sandals because they compliment the contrast hem on my dress beautifully. They have a very elegant mid-height heel which I know will make them a wardrobe staple. Not only that, they’re comfortable and versatile enough to wear with jeans or trousers too.
These photographs were taken on the Balcon de Europa which is where we stayed in Nerja. It’s a wonderful part of the town which comes alive at night with portrait painters and singers. Furthermore, it has breathtaking views which I don’t think I could ever tire of.
I think you’ll see why.
My red Allegra dress is a gift from Lagom (£75) and the Gabby black shimmer sandals, (£59.99), are a gift from Lotus. In addition, Lagom and Lotus co-sponsored this blog post. As always, everything I write is 100% honest and all content is my own. It’d be lovely if you’d support the brands that support me.
