With summer fast slipping behind us, I want to take a moment and remember a dress. This dress. Never before have I loved a dress. White, crisp cotton, tent like, roomy with voluminous sleeves. A dress I have worn as a day dress to the shops, walking a beach or out for dinner (no red sauce was eaten).
This summer was this dress, this beautiful dress. Only £29.99 from Zara. Cheap and cheerful, but looked like it was worth four times that price.
I have never felt happier when wearing this dress. I think sunshine, and rose wine, might have helped… but never the less – this one dress is an utter joy to wear.
Zara have really hopped on to this ‘wide’ dress trend. With this dress available in camel, black and white. I may have to get the other two colours so I can wear it throughout autumn and winter, with tights and boots.
So this, is my ode to a dress. I can’t wait to wear it again come Spring. Hoping that April will be warm and sunny or I jet off to warmer climes this winter so I can wear it again!
