..my favourite dress of the season edition!
Don’t even get me started on the weather this summer (are we still even calling it a summer?) So when the sun did make a brief appearance this week, out came my favourite dress of the season.
So, this is me..
(Black tank maxi dress – Isabella Oliver 365 Collection, leather cuff – Mulberry, watch – Michael Kors, sandals – Aldo)
You know when you put on a dress and it is like it was made for you? Well that is this dress. In fact, I could say the same about every dress I have ever bought from Isabella Oliver 365 to be quite honest. The photos really don’t do the dress justice I’m afraid. It’s a plain black jersey dress with a lovely belt detail around the hips. What you can’t see though is just how beautifully it is made and how the jersey is the perfect weight and hangs just so. The tank style top has a round neck that’s not too low or too high and it is cut perfectly so that there are no rogue
industrial strength scaffolding bra straps on show. Such a pet hate of mine to have straps peeking out. Ugh. But none of that with this dress. I love love LOVE it. I only wish that we were having a better summer so that I could justify buying it in rose colour way as well as black!
Today I’m wearing the dress with some Aldo sandals from last year but I love that it’s one of those dresses that can be dressed up or down and have even worn it with my red Converse and a denim jacket before. I have accessorised with my beloved Mulberry cuff which I know you have seen a million times before but a year on, my love for this beauty still has not waned.
My plan was to wear this dress to death this summer but the weather gods have conspired against me for the most part. Soggy toes are not a good look. So what are you wearing to death this season? Apart from your raincoat of course. As much as I love my Boden Rainyday Mac, I am sick of seeing the damn thing and it’s cheerful ditsy print *grumble* Fingers crossed that the weather remembers that it is summer before autumn arrives….
