I rarely feel love at first sight about clothes. Usually I just kinda like the look of something, then think about it for a little while before I eventually buy it. BUT THIS DRESS. I can’t get e-bloody-nough of it!
I’ve always been partial to a few polka dots, so the fact that they seem to be ‘in’ this season suits me down to the ground. But I also feel like this dress is classic enough not to look dated by the time next summer rolls around – I’ll try and remember to check in again then and let you all know if I was right.
This dress of absolute dreams is also perfect for humid days, despite my slight reservations about the length. I’m not usually a maxi dress kind of gal, but this one is just the right length for me. And I’m loving how swishy the skirt is too.
When I put this outfit together, I was really aiming for comfort as it was such a busy day, so I didn’t really consider how the shoes would look with the dress. I was pleasantly surprised with the effect though – I think I’m channelling some serious 2007 Lily Allen vibes with this maxi and trainer combo… Or I like to think I’m as cool as her, I’ll leave that up to you guys to decide!
