Boohoo x blogger dress of the month collaboration

It's not often you see me in a white dress; I'm all about summer comfort at the moment and this cool midi is perfect for sunny days out and about.
I was invited by Boohoo to take part in their new dress of the month feature and we all know I adore a little styling challenge. The exciting part was not knowing anything about the dress before it arrived (and I must admit I was a little nervous that I was completely in the dark about it) then wearing it however I fancied. We'll see how the others wore it by the end of the month too. I've often browsed the Boohoo site and know they have a really varied selection of pieces, something for every occasion so it really was a mystery what the dress would be like!

When the parcel was delivered I was relived that I instantly liked this pretty white lace panelled dress. It's one which I wouldn't have chosen myself on the basis that it's quite strappy and I would have been concerned about the lace panels being too revealing but honestly, I needn't have fretted because this dress is an absolute dream! It just goes to show that I ought to step out of my comfort zone more often and try new styles as there is much fun to be had.

The skirt is a swishy beaut. I love how it has plenty of material but not too much to be bulky. The length is ever-so-practical and flattering. Knees covered (usually) but equally, the hem is well out of danger from dragging in the mud.

I decided to style my dress in the way that immediately sprung to mind - because gut instinct takes a lot of beating. My little cropped denim jacket was my first choice as it's a really easy light way of adding a layer without completely covering up. I also reached for a skinny brown leather belt to break up the long length and add  little detail to the blank canvas. I'm still feeling chuffed I tied it in a cute little knot - so much more interesting than just using the punched holes.

My pretty necklace was a gift from Hazel who perhaps knows my taste as well as I do, isn't it a beaut? As usual, a stack of bright bangles on my arm which always makes me feel at home. And last but by no means least, my trusty brown ankle boots.

I feel like this dress has plenty of scope for restyling up for autumn. On a cooler day I would wear it with my cowboy boots and a chunky knit jumper. Or huge sturdy heels and a jacket. But this is a dress which has so much potential.

  2. Lovely pics, as usual. I can just picture a cowboy hat to go with the cowboy boots, lol! Thank goodness we've had some appropriate weather for this kind of photography.
