The Perfect Little Red Dress (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Summer made an appearance here in the welsh hills this week and what a mood changer its been! I've been waking up to glorious rays of sunshine streaming through and warmth to heat you through. We have this weather so rarely here in the UK so i feel we all lap up every second when it does show up. And not only do we lap up every second, but we also get to wear some summer fashion finally!
I have so many summer dresses but this one from Bows Boutique has become an instant winner on the favourite dress front. It's stylish on-trend bardot cut fits perfectly and doesn't do the pesky crawling up the arms thing, it just sits,skims and hangs perfectly. Perfect for those summer bbq's and parties as it skims the tummy area without adding lots of voluminous fabric.
Dress perfection!
I absolutely love wearing this dress, i can see it working for an evening meal as much as on the beach with sandals, which makes this perfect for holidays as well as stay-cations and days at home.
Now all i need is for the sunshine to stick around a while so i can get plenty of wear out of this beauty. Summer dressing is just so easy isn't it? Dress, shoes, done! 

What are you wearing to get in to the summer mood lately?

Ps 10 points to anyone who spots my sunburn.. wear sunblock kids, let my crabstick impression be a lesson to all 😉



  1. That is a beautiful little red dress - the ease of wearing nothing but a dress is one of the things I enjoy about summer too! :) I like the dress and denim jacket combo, I've been wearing it a lot recently although it's autumn here in Brisbane.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great week! I published my first eBook on Monday so I'm having a pretty good week! :)
