OOTD at Purobeach/Conrad Dubai



I have worn this dress two days in a row. And I don't care.

This is a recent Zara acquisition from the Spring collection. It has a pretty floral graphic print and while it is on the short side, the long sleeves and high neck help balance it out.

It's debut was to Purobeach at the Conrad Dubai.

Purobeach is a pool club franchise that started in Spain and has gradually worked it's way to the Middle East. Housed inside the Conrad Hotel, it's slap bang in the middle of Sheikh Zayed Road but despite it's location you can barely hear the roar of traffic. It feels like a chic secret walled garden with tropical flowers lining the walkways to white lounge beds and pools. It's a little bit magical, especially in the evening, and the mocktails/cocktails and food are delicious. I wish I could remember the name of one particular cocktail because it was incredible - if you go ask for the one with the great big chilli!




Dress: Zara - Link!
Boots: BCBG (old)
Bag: Celine

I hope you had a great Friday/Saturday! I'm off to do a sneaky mini Selfridges order. I feel like a Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette needs to be purchased and from what Twitter says, Dolce Vita should be the one :)

  21. This is my favourite outfit on you ever. I adore that bag! I recently got myself Mini Luggage in dark green but now you've given me a craving for a bright summer colour like that... Btw I'm flying to Dubai tomorrow, might pay this place a visit! :-)

  24. Vegan cosmetics refer to the makeups made with natural and organic ingredients. They do not contain any animal ingredients or any by products. They have never been tested on animals neither.

  25. Vegan makeup, or all planet-friendly makeup is the latest trend in the fashion world. If you are going to spend the extra green at the grocery store checkout line by purchasing healthier organic fruits and vegetables, why not also invest in your skin’s overall health by purchasing vegan products?
