By The Sea
I don’t want to sound like I’m tooting my own horn, but I bloody love this Dress! I mean, seriously, it’s everything I want from a summer dress, it’s the perfect length, a great fit and a killer print. Want to know something shocking too? Despite it being a shirt dress, it doesn’t gape at the boobs, which is basically unheard of! In fact, I love this dress so much, I ordered a second one… y’know, just in case the laundrette do something stupid and ruin it, which has happened in the past. I figured I would get myself two now, rather than spend the next 10 years searching for a duplicate on eBay. You know it makes sense!
In general, I’m a bit of a commitment-phobe, but not when it comes to this dress. I went the whole hog with this look; the coat, dress, bag and shoes are all from the Boden S/S17 collection. Look closely and you will notice everything has a bit of a nautical / naval theme to it. After all, committing to a look is far more fun than committing to something serious like a job, mortgage or diet plan. Am I right?! I think I’m right! FYI, if you haven’t already stalked the Boden website to see the summer collection, I highly recommend you do, there are some amazing things online right now, some of them are even on sale! I might even go as far to say, that this dress is one of my favourite ever Boden designs!
