THE PERFECT CLASSIC AND AIRY DRESS FOR SUMMER…

Summer is here and this means it’s time to experiment with summery prints like stripes, floral, polka dots, plaid and of course colours. It is all about minimalism and easy breezy styling that still speaks volume. Wear pieces that have a bounce to them, airy and forgiving. With the weather getting hotter errday, what you don’t need is too much clothing.

When I saw this dress (soldout) on Shein, it just screamed summer chic/classic, but apparently not to everybody. I wore it to a baby naming ceremony and everyone jokingly called me a school girl. As an educator, I understood where they were coming from as some of the schools uniforms are made of the same fabric. While they called me that, the dress was a hit with the ladies and lots asked where I got it from. So yeah I suppose it was a winner. Ha! The dress really feels comfortable on and it is so airy. I love the ruffle sleeves which is so on trend this season. Off the bat I knew I wanted to pair it with something red because I felt like it will bring the dress more alive.

Happy July Beauties!

    You make summer dressing look so easy, my beautiful Mavis! I can sense the easy breezy feel of this dress just from the pics. It is effortlessly chic! Love the baby blue print too. This color looks so great on you! I don’t really see “school girl” with this look. You just look amazing! I hope you have this dress on repeat in your closet! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

    That dress looks great on you and too funny, gingham is not associated with school uniforms here, instead it is plaid. And I hear you, it is sooooooooo hot here. We have been plunged in to a furnace it is awful with 70 percent plus humidity everyday. I need lots of super light weight clothes.
