Vintage Purple Floral Dress In The Summer

Vintage Purple Floral Dress In The Summer

The past 5 days or so have been crazy! Where did the summer go? I know some of you here in the UK have had awful flooding from the severe thunderstorms we were all having, so I hope you’re all ok! Luckily here it didn’t flood, just bad storms. As us Brits always talk about the weather, I’m sure a lot of us are being skeptical and thinking that the summer has now gone, ha ha. I’m just lucky Adam and I managed to get a few good days of sun while we were in Lyme Regis! Speaking of which, the blog post with the photos will be coming up on Friday!

Now getting to my outfit, you have seen this dress twice before (here and here) and it’s one that I often reach for in the hot weather. It’s a Vintage Urban Renewal Dress and the cotton is so lightweight that it’s just completely breathable and lovely. It’s a joy to wear when you’re sweating, ha ha. I styled it with my Schutz Rashne Double Strap Sandals (which I included in my recent shoe roundup), my Celine Mini Belt Bag in Clay, my Superdry Sunglasses (I’m sure you can tell I love them right now) and my Swarovski Crystal Dust Bracelet.

I’m glad that when I actually bought this dress back in 2014 (I know, I was shocked I have had it 4 years!) it was a little loose because it still fits me with the small weight gain that’s happened over the last year. It’s one of those pieces that I just never get bored of. My style is changing a lot lately and I would say as of the past 3-4 months, I’m always gravitating towards dresses, playsuits, and shirts now instead. It’s even been a long time since I wore wellies! Don’t worry though, I haven’t got rid of them and I still wear my rain coats all the time! Anyway, I will leave it at that and talk a lot more in the Lyme Regis blog post soon. What do you think of the outfit? Lorna xx.

What I Was Wearing:

        One of our office staff. She’s a bit older and, yes, a bit wider, but that cut will work on her, and florals have always been her friend.

    In my part of the country we had very little dramatic weather at all. No storms and only a small amount of rain. Reading the reports of the more dramatic conditions further south surprised me a bit.

    The dress is beautiful! Purple is my second favourite colour, of course, so I very much like this. It’s nice to see darker colours being used in a summer styling. I also like those shoes which go so well with the dress. It’s another nice sign of summer to see people with their feet out in the open (not that my own feet are any great advert for summer but I still do expose them on hotter days). πŸ˜€

    This is a terrific set of photos, Lorna. I think those really crisp looking shadows also add a lot to the feel of them. πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much, Steven πŸ™‚ I’m glad you like the dress! You’re right, it is nice to use darker colours sometimes in summer prints.

      Oh! You will be pleased to know I found some green jeans in my jeans collection from ages ago, I just need to check they fit πŸ˜€

      • June 1, 2018 / 2:08 pm

        Yes, I saw your PM to me last night. πŸ™‚ That’s such good news – though does it mean you won’t bother trying to get the pair from your wish list now or will you still want those too? Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing you work either green jeans into an outfit.

          I’m still intrigued by the green ones in my wish list as they are a bit lighter in colour, so I will see if they come back in stock πŸ™‚

    That’s such a cute dress on you dear! So chic and flattering. Pretty colors for the little flowers too!

    What a sweet floral dress. I loved how you added some sophistication with the double strapped sandals. And oh, that bag is so fabulous. I hope the weather gets better. I hate it when it rains so very often.
