Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend. The heat has returned here and it’s feeling rather muggy and oppressive. I don’t usually post solely outfit posts on Sundays but I have a few ready to go so I thought I’d mix things up a bit. We shot these photos during the brief respite from the hot weather. That said, this charming dotty dress is very light and breezy, and the stretch jersey material makes it really comfortable.
I intially considered styling it with neutral wedge sandals and a straw shopper bag for a more casual outfit, but decided to dress it up with some colour. Teaming this black and white polka dot dress with red accessories creates a stylish and comfortable evening look. The beauty of a dress like this is its versatility, making it ideal for trips away; it would take up very little space in a suitcase and it doesn’t crease easily. The deep V neck is very flattering on larger busts, while the knotted front adds definition around the waist.
For cooler temperatures during daytime I’d layer a fitted cardigan over the dress, but as I was aiming for an evening look I chose this faux leather jacket. This did crease quite badly in the packaging but the worst of the creases dropped out after I left it on a hanger for a day or two. It’s also available in red and silver (which I was very tempted by) and is only £19.99. The dress is now reduced to £10 and is also available in other colours.
