SUMMER (DRESSES) IN THE CITY

'A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). It consists of a top piece that covers the torso and hangs down over the legs. A dress can be any one-piece garment containing a skirt of any length. Dresses can be formal or informal. In many cultures, dresses are more often worn by women and girls.The hemlines of dresses vary depending on the whims of fashion and the modesty or personal taste of the wearer' Wikipedia.

I love Summer dresses (I actually like dresses in all seasons), they are great for so many reasons - comfortable, flattering, fun, cool.... Plus there are so many different style dresses in the world - maxi, mini, wrap, body-con, beach, wedding - but as Wikipedia states the hemline depends on the wearer!

Here are 3 very different styled, versatile dresses that will hopefully inspire you to get your dress on this Summer:

PINK + LIPS

This dress is the cool side of pretty and could be worn to anything. I love the pale pink colour but also love the fun red lipstick print.  This is defiantely a twirling dress and due to the buttons up the front is breastfeeding friendly too.  

 

 

MADEMOISELLE R Lips Printed Short-Sleeved Dress £41.30 (was £59) / R studio Leather Sandals with Cross-Over Straps £49

ROMANTIC + FRENCH

Everytime I wear this dress I feel like cycling an old bicycle through a lavender field in central France - which I know is quite a specific image but it would be such a perfect occasion to wear this dress. Saying that this dress is easy to wear and versitele, it is soft and comfortable and perfect for warm weather.

R studio Romantic Embroidered Dress £29.40 (was £49) / Hand bag with wooden handles £39

DINNER + DISCO 

I tested this dress out in Ibiza last week - I look it from dinner to the dance floor and it was perfect. It is stretchy enough for dinner but disco enough for the dance floor and perfect for packing in a suitcase as it doesn't crease.

MADEMOISELLE R Lamé Dress £69
