It felt like Summer all over again at the weekend – just when I think it’s time to pack my Summer clothes away the weather throws a curveball. Not that I’m complaining 😉 The recent warm spell gave me the perfect opportunity to road test this blush pink cotton sundress. I’ll be taking it on my trip to Madeira next month so it was great to try it out beforehand.
The fabric is lovely and soft, and as it’s cotton it’s also very cooling in the heat. The lacey back certainly helps with that too. I love the tassel detailing and the ruffle on the hem. This dress is also available in yellow and white, but as I have a few yellow dresses already (and I can’t keep white clean!) I chose blush pink. Whenever I order online from a new-to-me brand, I’m always a little apprehensive regarding sizing. However, I referred to the size chart and ordered a large, which fits perfectly. In terms of quality, there were a few loose threads, but nothing major; I can easily snip them off.
For accessories, I opted for neutral wedge sandals and my Zara basket bag. I adore the quirky shape of this bag, but it’s not one to take on holiday – it would get flattened in the case! To match the soft pink of the dress I chose a rose quartz ring and bracelet, which I layered with a load of other bracelets, all made by me.
I’m wearing a nude strapless bra under the dress because going without just isn’t an option for me! However, a lacey bra in a similar shade would look nice, or maybe one in hot pink for a colour contrast. I think this may the one and only time I wear this dress on home soil this year…after the glorious sunshine on Friday and Saturday the rain has returned with a vengeance!
