Ilashan Dress in Mykonos

ilashan dress

With summer drawing to an end, you never know which will be the last time you are wearing that favorite summer dress of yours, right? But the good news is that there’s always a good excuse to do so! Today I can finally share with you my favorite Ilashan dress, designed by the talented Indira Lashan Moss.

First of all, the Bahamian-seas inspired color of that dress is perfect for summer, especially when you live or go for vacation to a sea side location. This rich, blue color looks different under different lighting conditions; in the same way the sea reflects the colors of the sky! Second, the unique braided details on the neckline, with the amazingly soft fabric and the backless halter top, make that dress the perfect summery statement, ideal both for daytime and evening. And the great news is that Melodie dress is also available in coral and red!

I styled my Ilashan dress by draping my favorite blazer on my shoulders, as I wore it for a goodbye dinner with clients who were leaving the next day! I always like to cover up for a business dinners and occasions that involve work in them. There is nothing like a good pair of sleeves and/or a collar, for keeping minds on business!

Tip: For an business dinner or any other similar occasion, look for an outfit that is dressy, but covers the same parts of your body that you cover at work.

I finished styling with my beloved Chloé Faye bag, black sliders and gold jewelry. What do you think? Is this something you would wear to dine with clients or business associates?

Do you also have a favorite dress that you wear as much as you can before summer ends? If you have a post or photos wearing it, please feel free to leave your link in the comments section below. I would love to check it out!

Thank you so much for reading, and I wish you a great month of September!

    That dress is just so so gorgeous! Love the blue color and definitely love the idea of working it by the sea! And love the tips on pairing it with something more covering when doing business/meeting etc. So lovely to add a blazer, keep the outfit chic and still be professional about it! And your sandals to this look, they’re so chic! Happy fall love! Xx

    Hi gorgeous! Wow, what a gorgeous dress! I saw one of these photos on Instagram and I knew i had to see the whole post. I absolutely adore the color of your dress as well as the details in the neck. I also appreciate your quick styling tip for business dinners, that’s always a tricky one. You just took #girlboss style to the next level, girl! 😉

      Aww thank you so much Deb! This Ilashan dress has indeed an amazing colour and I love how great it matches the sceneries here in Mykonos! 😀 Business dinner dress code is tricky yes, but if you just take in mind to cover the parts you cover at work, then you will surely look appropriate! Thank you for stopping by, always happy to read your comments! x

    My gosh you look gorgeous. I love how that blue pops against the white. If you’ve been to Santorini, those famous blue domes you see in all the pics are the same color as your dress!

    Looking like a Greek goddess Stella! Love the cerulean blue colour and the style is nice both front and back. Wish I can visit the Greek islands in the near future, your photos are truly inspiring and promoting the beauty of the place.

      Thank you so much Mercy, what a lovely comment! This Ilashan dress has the most amazing blue colour, and you are so right, looks great front and back (especially this braided neckline detail)! I do hope too you will visit too the Greek islands soon, I would love to see what kind of outfits you would wear here in Greece, because your style is so interesting and inspiring!!
      Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
