I am so ready for dresses.
As much as I love my comfortable kit I am a little tired of looking like I play sport all day and every day.
But it’s tough.
Life is different and I have become accustomed to casual attire over dressy wear. There is another small problem too; fashion is not inspiring me right now. I wanted to talk about shoes other than sneakers or trainers today and spent hours looking for alternatives to show you. Truthfully, this season’s latest shoes are quite tricky and I would rather stick with the trainers. I will keep looking but for now, I don’t want to wear combat boots with my summer dresses or gumboots with a caftan; not to mention some of the weirdest sandals I have ever seen in the designer collections.
Maybe it is age but more likely circumstance and I want to, no I must adapt fashion to suit me. I am sure you all agree and do the same. This is not to say I don’t want to look current – of course, I do – more than ever after a slow-paced year but I want to love these new pieces and feel encouraged to wear them.
Like this one.
A shape of dress I truly think works is the shirtdress with a fuller skirt; some call it a fit and flare skirt. Collar or not and button-up – usually with a self-belt or cinched waist – this is a great dress to wear if you haven’t been in the habit of wearing a dress.
Why it’s a beauty.
Because this dress is easy, because it is super flattering and extremely comfortable.
When you are out of the habit, get back in with this one. It’s uncomplicated and undemanding all the way.
With something as season-less as this; what’s not to love? xv
