What a darling!

Bando - Accessorize
Wedges - Faith

I am probably quite predictable when it comes to clothing. Everyone has their personal styles which they are instantly drawn to and for me it is all about the colour cream, cinched waists, pleats, florals and feminine fabrics. This dress from Darling ticks pretty much all these boxes with its draped sleeves and floaty, ethereal finish. It is the epitome of grown-up girliness and its cross-over style with the exaggerated sleeves and tied waist are quite reminiscent of a kimono. Needless to say it is perfectly cool and breezy to wear during these unexpected yet gratefully appreciated summer days. Despite my inner loathing of the expression, you really can "dress this piece up or down", casual enough for picnics in the park yet easily given a height of sophistication with some heels and a fancy up-do! I am already thinking this could be the perfect dress to wear to a very English wedding I am attending later on in the year. :)

I hope you are all having good weeks and enjoying the glorious sunshine.
