Let’s just say that this weekend in terms of weather has been utterly gorgeous in the UK. In fact, I cannot remember when we last had nice weather like this. Summer often feels pretty much none existent, therefore when it strikes in full force one must make the most of it. It would be rude not to right?
This weekend I have mostly spent my time being back and forth between the outdoors and the refuge of shade; it has been of course Father’s day and I have most certainly picked up my father’s trait of not being able to handle the heat for too long. Luckily for me I have had a huge fan placed strategically next to my desk whilst I have being preparing a few blog posts here and there, however my car journey to meet my partner for food was somewhat of a struggle due to the fact that I do not have the luxury of air con. *Note to self that when I get a new car (in about five year’s time), I will be looking for that feature first.
Dress c/o She In, Shoes – ASOS (old)
The nice weather tied in beautifully with my attempt to show off this dress from She In as it really is a beautiful item of clothing. The Lantern Sleeve Floral Print Shift Dress* (also currently on sale) has been pretty popular from what I can see. At first I was not aware of this, however it instantly appealed to me due to the boho style which, if I am honest I adore and would love to integrate more into my every day wardrobe.
Dark floral patterns are my favourite, which again is another reason why I like this particular piece so much. The only gripe I do have with this item is that it is ridiculously oversized. Now, I know that is the general gist, however this really is very, very big. For reference, I am a size 10/12 depending on where I shop and the type of item I am buying. That being said, I opted for the size small in this which as you can see, there is still plenty of room to be had.
To make this a bit more flattering you can easily wear a little belt to show your waist line if you prefer. I would also make a point of saying that if you do add a little belt then be prepared for the dress to become incredibly short…
Despite the above, I actually do adore this piece and find myself itching to wear it out in public. It is most definitely out of my comfort zone, however my Nan loved it this morning so that’s a start, right?!
