OOTD: A Summer Dress

‘I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear the pants.’ – Whitney Houston.


Gosh I miss Whiteney Houston. I am listening to one of her hits – ‘One Moment in Time’, and it is so sad to know we will never hear anything new from  that golden voice again. I loved Whitney, and her quote above was one of my fashion favourite quotes.

I am a jeggings and top girl, but I also love my skirts and my dresses, especially my dresses. I really enjoy wearing dresses, especially in the summer. There is nothing like rocking a cute floral summery dress on a warm summer day. It is the best. I find dresses super comfy and easy to style on warm days. I got this stunning skater dress some weeks ago and this was my first time wearing. I love the design and cut a lot. It was also a perfect fit. This new addition in my summer dresses collection is now a favourite, and I will be wearing this beauty some more. I have a couple of outings planned in the next couple of weeks, so I am happy I am sorted in the dress department.

I found this skater floral dress very easy to style. I wanted to style it up with a pair of sandals because it has been dead warm over here in Cheshire, so I went for my golden tan sandal and paired it up with this brown bag. I didn’t plan this look in advance, it just fell into place and looked good. I am loving this new method of just going with the flow with styling outfits. Looks like it is working prettily well for me.

Last week was so busy blog-wise. I got back from my Amsterdam holiday, last Monday, and I had so many collaborations to get started, and that is why I was unable to post an outfit feature so I really hope you like this outfit and are inspired by it.

  1. I adore Whitney. I saw the Bodyguard last year and it was amazing. Alexander Burke was excellent. Your dress is amazing Stella, it’s exactly like the style I would wear. Love House of Fraser!

  2. You look lovely Stella! I’m the same as you, normally you’ll find me in jeans but I do love throwing on a summer dress! You’ve styled yours wonderfully, the hat is a great match!

  3. You look fabulous in that dress. I love wearing dresses too especially in summer. This really suits you. I love your hat and that beautiful bag too. You are on baby.

  4. You look fab and rocking Stella. I love the hat with this look too. Once I would have told you ”I don’t do dresses” however that was when the adult youngsters were small. I love dresses now. As you say they are so comfy and easy to wear. I am very much into the loose quirky flowing styles of Joe Browns’ whom is a fave of mine.

  5. I got this very dress last month from HoF and I love. I saw those heels in NL and thought I wait until next time before I order them but now I see how awesome they look

  6. This dress looks beautiful on you! I love the print and cut on you. It’s funny, during the summer I love to wear dresses but not so much during the winter. By the way, I love that Whitney quote.
    Hope you have a great week!

    xo, Jackie
