Summer Denim Dress (& #Passion4Fashion Link-up)

So, do you remember back in Spring I lived in my beloved Denim Shirt Dress (recap here for you)? It was a well loved item in my capsule, remixed and worn lots of ways, and I do infact still love it, but retired it just for a season( thoroughly looking forward to bringing it back for autumn!). Well when i was curating the Spring Capsule, I knew it needed a summer version: something perhaps sleeveless for the all the heat (pah). It was instant denim dress love take two, when I found this Warehouse version. The only problem is I haven't had any chance to wear it as the weather has been a giant bag of crap if I'm honest. Yesterday I actually took the tags off it and wore it for the first time and I was only slightly cold ;) (Also side-note, another bummer, this dress is over half off now...grrr!)
But yes, I do love it. Seeing as it's still not full arm and shoulder bearing weather..i.e. it's bloody chilly, I decided to layer this Warehouse slim fit Tshirt underneath it, and I really liked the outcome, plus i had faked tanned my legs, so I was wearing a dress regardless. I'm actually glad I did as I'm getting fed up of wearing the same 3 jeans on constant rotation.
Anyway, I am pleased I have finally gotten to wear it, even if I did have to chuck a cardi(which incidentally has also gone on sale. Double grrr) over it for most of the day.












Have you bought anything for Summer that you haven't gotten around to wearing yet?

Get the look...
Dress
T-Shirt
(similar)Espadrilles
Cardigan
Bucket Bag
Bandana 


Also Thank you to every one who came with wonderful words of encouragement on the changes that will be taking place here on RTH. It honestly really touched me how you took to IG/Twitter/ FB to tell me that you are excited for this new journey..
I feel giddy with excitement and happiness lately, like I've been on the gin, but completely sober ;)
THANK YOU from the very bottom of my big ol' heart.

And if you missed the news, you can read all about it here

Until next time..

  2. That is a pretty great dress that can be worn so many ways. Congratulations on deciding to take the plunge into changing the direction of the blog. I'm sure it's a bit scary, but you always have to stay true to yourself.

  8. I respect your insight on why you are rebranding or changing things up and that is awesome Rachel. I don't have the trendiest items myself and it can be so hard to compare or spend money on things I don't need just because they are in style for a month or two. I like your capsule idea.

  10. Gorgeous dress, it's a lovely fit. A "giant bag of crap" is probably the best description of the weather I've heard! It's warming up next week :-)

  12. This denim button-up dress is the cutest thing ever. It looks so effortless and stylish at the same time. I love your striped tee layered under it, and those wedges compliment the outfit perfectly. Glad you were able to find a summer option to fill in for your other favorite.
