Long, Hot Summer Days … and warm evenings
I’ve joined the
There’s nothing like a delicate green to give the feeling of coolness to a hot summer’s day.
This is a long and feminine dress with a sweet floral print.
The neckline is wide and flattering and feels lovely and cool.
Button me up, baby!!
I love the button detail down the front of the dress from the bodice …
Flutter Sleeves and Flutter Skirts…
The femininity and delicacy of the dress is emphasised with the flutter sleeves, giving some coverage from the strong Australian sun.
The long full skirts are also very pretty and have a lovely movement when I walk.
Keeping it Pretty and Summery
Everything about this dress screams summer and pretty.
I’ve emphasised this with the gorgeous magenta wicker bag and shoes which have been the buy of the year – I’ve been amazed by how often I’ve been able to wear them and how much they lift the look of so many outfits!
Hairbands and Baubles
I’ve worn a bit of extra bling than I would normally because it’s a very bohemian look.
I added big, old beads in the necklace, some dangly earrings, bracelets and the tie-dyed headband.
Whenever I wear these type of hairbands I think how great it would be to have dreadlocks, but my hair is just too fine and thin to think of such a thing.
It was the perfect dress for a healing session, a wander around some pretty shops, a trip through the sweetest plant nursery and finally a light, fresh lunch!
These boys don’t care, as long as they can snuggle and sleep on a clean, comfy bed!!

Love, love, love that dress and the length! Those shoes are so cute and go so well with the dress.

Thank you, Diane, it’s a dress that takes you anywhere and I’ve had the shoes for nearly 10 years and I dread when they wear out because I’ve never seen anything like them since … thank you for your lovely comment! Donna 🧚🏻♀️❤️🙏

This brings me to memories of warm, sunny days of golden rays against my shoulders, fragrant pink, purple, and yellow flowers, cherry popsicles, and sweetly lazy afternoons… these are the wonderful things in that I was reminded of with your dress!

Oh Nika! You find poetry and beauty in everything and I love that about you – I particularly loved the popsicle image as it has the childlike innocence that I associate with you and your sweet spirit!! Donna 🧚🏻♀️❤️🙏
