Do you sometimes get the feeling when you see a dress (or something else) and it’s so perfect and you just have to have it. This happened with this dress. It was literally love at first sight! I love the fact that in many ways it’s very me – pink, fit and flare, below the knee.. but on the other hand it’s a shade of pink I don’t own yet – it’s a salmon pink bordering on orange and it’s not a colour I usually go for.. It’s embroidered and I don’t think I own any embroidered dress and it’s a wrap dress and I often struggle with those.
But I seriously love it! I wore it over the weekend and didn’t want to take it of. It just made me feel good. The reason I often struggle with wrap dresses is because I think the cleavage is often too low, they keep opening when it’s windy and they don’t often fit right on a tall person. When it arrived (I ordered it online) I knew I wanted to keep it, but I wasn’t sure about the fit and it seemed very see-through. I didn’t know what to do and then it hit me! I put a slip underneath and it worked wonders. It helped with the low cleavage, wasn’t see through any more and I didn’t have to worry about the wind any more seriously life changer.
(Some time ago I bought a slip dress in Marks and Spencer (I needed it for a particular dress) and I never thought I would wear it as much as I do. It’s such a good thing to have in your wardrobe! There’s so many dresses that are little bit see-through and I realised a good slip is a life safer.)
I could go out and just enjoy my weekend. It has been such a beautiful weather here in London and I’ve been trying to spend as much time as I can outside and make the most of it. So on Saturday, wearing my new dress, my friend and I went to west London for a coffee and cake al fresco and then for a long walk in the south west London. It’s not an area I visit that often and it was nice just to wander through new streets and discover new hidden gems and it was so so lovely. We came across the amazing car in the first photo and I couldn’t resist posing in front of it. I love old cars. We ended up in a pub and had a bbq and couple of drinks (I had Aperol spritzer should you care) and it was just such a nice day.
I discovered a new cute coffee shop which I can’t wait to tell you about but you’ll just have to wait for now.
How was your weekend? Do you love wrap dresses?
Have a stylish day.
