Summer Dresses!

Every summer I have the same obsession, where can I buy the perfect Summer dress? For the past few years I've oscillated between lots of cheap cotton dresses from places like H&M and Primark, and then the next year really quite pricey items from places like Baukjen, Hobbs and Whistles. I've never really hit upon the perfect dress to be honest, as usually what I like to see online is quite different to what I actually want to put on when it's a hot summery day. Funny isn't it?

Luckily, I was sent a lovely summer dress to try by the lovely people at Bonprix, it's this lovely full length evening gown priced £39.99. I asked for it in this lovel bluey green colour, as I once did some sort of style/colour match and blue and dark pink came out as "my colours" apparently. Hmm.

What I like about it, and the reason I chose it, is because it can be worn in lots of different ways which I'll show you in a minute. Although it's sold as an evening gown, I personally think it can be dressed up with heels and accessories or even worn with sandals down at the beach, it's definitely "throw on".

Erm, non cross over back

The colour is lovely and really vibrant without being over the top. I'm really pleased with it and think I'll definitely wear it on holiday. It would be especially great on a cruise in the evenings as I've heard that people get quite dressed up on cruises, with some sparkly heels and a nice clutch it would be perfect.

I was also lucky enough to be sent a really nice necklace from Damart that went really well with the dress.

The necklace is really nice and great with summer dresses, I think it would also look great with jeans and a white shirt. The colour really catches the light and it's really stylish. There are various other jewellery options on offer that are well worth a look as well. Damart is just round the corner from my house and I'd always wondered what it was, well now I know!

Happy days, roll on summer holidays!

The dress was gifted to my by Bonprix, and the necklace by Damart, but all thoughts are my own.
