hello!

With the summer weather out in full force, it only seemed natural to bring out a 'retro' style swing dress out of my wardrobe. This one's a beauty and has a few properties that I adore:

a) there's a cute little ol' collar on it. I'm a big fan of shirts so spotting this on the dress had me clicking 'check out' quicker than probably necessary. 

b) it's fitted at the top and flares out at the bottom. It's the perfect sitting place for a waist belt for narrowing that region and creates a subtle feminine silhouette.  

c) the fabric it's made out of. Not quite cotton and not fully polyester - it doesn't absorb heat easily and the breathable material means it's the perfect thing to wear on hot and humid days.

d) the colour and pattern! It's in an idyllic sky blue shade and I like to imagine that the white polka dot background are tiny little round clouds. It's a feel-good colour and makes that hot summer day just that little brighter.

What is your go-to day dress?

I hope you're having a lovely day so far :)
