Aztec Print Dress, Balenciaga Envelope Clutch | Orange Stripe Tank, Shorts, Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy

Here's what I wore to have lunch with DH and dinner with my family and friends yesterday:
Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Kirsten sunnie' in yellow
NecklaceHouse of Harlow gold gold mini key pendant necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus Lovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' twisted bow charm bracelet in silverLovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' heart charm bracelet in silver, Chloe Paddington crystal charm bracelet from Reebonz offline sale, gifted Ferragamo double wrap bracelet.
Dress: gifted Rivers Aztec Print Dress
Belt: came with dress
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan (New Purchase)
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH from Reebonz

Close up of accessories and clutch:

Wanted to wear something comfortable yet suitable for dinner, so I went for a printed dress again. I really like the print on this dress and thought it would go well with my yellow clutch. I need to make an effort to wear my clutches more often, and yesterday was a good day to do so as I didn't have to carry much. The tan sandals seemed like an obvious choice to match the tan belt the dress came with.

The sunnies were last worn here, and clutch here. This is the first time I've worn the dress as it was a recent gift, and first time I've worn the sandals as they were a recent sale purchase.

Close up of accessories and bag:

Just a nice casual outfit to beat the heat today! I was a little worried that this top would be too long to pair with the shorts and I'm not 100% convinced now I see the photos. Won't pair these shorts and that tank together again. What do you think?

The sunnies were last worn here, top here, shorts here, sandals here and bag here.
