Pretty Dresses And Sunny Days

I have two styles of clothes I wear; jeans and a top or pretty dresses.  I like the casualness of jeans and a top and how practical an outfit can be but at times I like to put a pretty dress on.  I love vintage 1950s style dresses especially the style of dresses that UK company Lindy Bop specialise in.  I also love that they make the dresses in larger sizes (8 to 26) and are a great true to size fit.  I know that I can go to my local shopping centre and visit a number of stores and need different sizes in different stores.  I sometimes need different sizes in the same shop!  How can sizes vary so much from garment to garment?

I know that with Lindy Bop dresses I will get the perfect fit every time.  I firmly believe this is what we should be getting from all stores and is so helpful when you purchase online.  I know when I buy something online and I can’t get a consistent fit I am unlikely to buy from that company again.  but with Lindy Bop I have never had this issue.

I just love the pattern on this Audrey Pink Rose Swing Dress.  I love how it fits perfect and most of the dresses at Lindy Bop in this style come with coordinating belts.

I’m 5ft 9 and I find the dress is a perfect length on me.  It sits just below my knee.  I love how these Audrey dresses can be dressed down with flats or worn with heels too.  They also wash fabulously with no shrinkage of the cotton fabric at all.  They don’t need much ironing either with is always a plus in my book!

Now I’ve purchased a summer dress lets hope there are plenty of sunny days to let me wear it!

Do you have a favourite style dress or are you just not a dress person and prefer jeans and trousers?

    That’s a lovely pretty dress and it looks good on you. I’m a jeans and top type of person too, but like you like wearing pretty dresses too.

    Love that dress! With working from home I tend to wear jeans or leggings but I do love to dress up when we go somewhere

    This is such a pretty dress. Floral prints are my favourite for sure. This looks so summery and bright, really nice. I’ve never heard of lindy bob before but I’ll need to have a look.

    If we go out I love to wear a dress (in fact I feel like I MUST!) Its funny i updated my facebook status this morning to something along the lines of ‘its a sad state of affairs when your going out dresses get shoved to the back of the wardrobe BEHIND the winter stuff!

    I really do love getting dressed up it’s a shame that I don’t go out much anymore 🙁
