Hi babyloves! It's fiiiiinally Friday! Ach this week seems to have lasted forever, it always does when I'm on a late shift week but we're finally here at the start of the weekend. As I am clearly very ecstatic about this I think my outfit today is real appropriate as it's bright and colourful and bold and crazy and fun.
You've probably spotted an awful lot of mesh detailed pieces around at the moment, it's definitely a key trend at the moment and I for one am a big fan. Just that little touch of see through fabric - so subtle but so sexy - adds such interest to a garment and elevates this skater dress* from Yours Clothing to something very special. I'm also a very big fan of bardot neckline that this dress sports, a classic retro style that I am oh so glad has come back into fashion.
The dress itself is made of a nice thick scuba style fabric with lots of stretch and features such a lovely painterly floral print in a palette of that wonderful colour clash, orange and pink. I just love this incredible colour combination, it takes me right back to being a little girl and my parents taking me to the Belgrave Road in Leicester, looking at all the stunning saris and glittering jewellery and thinking it was the most magical beautiful place in the world! I was so happy when my mum bought me a sari for a birthday present one year, it had a metallic gold little top with an orange underskirt and a bright fuchsia sari wrap edged in metallic gold with gold embroidered paisleys all over - I even had some little gold slippers with pink gems to match! I wish I still had it, it was so gorgeous and special.
I definitely think this dress will be great for my holiday later in the year but I know I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it before then, most likely with a pair of leggings to make it a little more casual to be worn on shopping trips - it's so comfy and easy to take on and off that it would be great for shopping in!
