Soft Whimsical Summer Dress

17/07/2017

Each time a new season starts I’m convinced that it’s my favourite time of the year – but maybe it’s because I love change. Right now I’m sure summer is the best time.

Every summer I purchase one or two white dresses, although I don’t go purposely to buy white dresses. I’m always looking for something colourful – but I just can’t pass up a beautiful white dress, such as the one I’m wearing from French designer, Claudie Pierlot in the photos.

I love the whimsical feel to this maxi dress – and how it flows into a sweeping silhouette with each step. It has a lace overlay on the bodice. (sorry you can’t see it in the photo). There is a summer-ease to it and would look lovely with flat sandals. I went for block heels just because I love wearing them at the moment as you may have seen in another post, here.

Claudie Pierlot dress, now on sale, Valentino bag, Bruno Premi sandals (similar here)

I’ve chosen a few white maxi dresses which I also love.
