Mint Harvest

Wednesday 20 April 2016

I love classic dresses that are not only beautiful to wear but also comfortable. This dress has been one that I have constantly been reaching for in my closet lately, whether it be for trips to the supermarket, walks in the park with the dogs or bike rides!

Nessie Dress in Mint Harvest - c/o Rock N Romance (Seamstress of Bloomsbury)
Where the Heart is Brooch - c/o Erstwilder
Headscarf - ebay
Shoes - I Love Billy

Rock N Romance has a huge range of Seamstress of Bloomsbury clothing, various other brands and also a new line of their own. This has to be one of my favourite dresses by this particular brand so far.

The Nessie dress is made to have a slightly loose fit but with the tie and design this dress has a really nice silhouette and you are able to cinch in your waist. I love front pockets and my phone + coin purse keeps ending up in these ones! I also love the rayon fabric that is used for a lot of the designs by Seamstress of Bloomsbury, including this one. I paired it with my Erstwilder brooch which is so sweet and stands out really well on a lot of my outfits. There are plenty of things to like about this dress but the colours were what caught my eye at first.

I am wearing size 8 again for this brand and have found this style to be one of my favourite fits - though if you are worried Rock N Romance has really great advice when it comes to sizing so be sure to ask!

I like to alternate by doing my serious bike rides which involve the hills in the area in my sportswear (which I like wearing, I have lots of coordinated sets) and if it is a laid back bike ride then I can pop something a bit glamorous on to go with the bike! Sometimes you have to get the photos first before stuffing your hair into a bike helmet too, haha!

  1. These photos are so beautiful! I am in love with your style (and blog of course!).


  2. Fabulously pretty outfit! I can't express enough how much I adore that your frock and bike match. Talk about an awesome - and highly functional - "accessory" for this beautiful Nessie frock.

    Big hugs,

  3. Your dress and shoes are super cute.

  4. Mint and pink is one of my favourite colour combinations, but one that you don't often see in clothes, actually. So I love this dress and your cute outfit - and of course, how well it matches your bike ;) I may need to get a bike soon (quelle horror!), and I can't quite get a mint green one out of my head... x

  5. What a gorgeous and classic style of dress! I definitely have to check out this brand. I can't wait for the warm weather to hit as I love bike rides in the summer!

  6. I love the bike, what a dream! I have to say that dress looks like real vintage!

  7. hello there,nice photos and great look...cheers!

  8. I really love this dress on you Kayla and that bike is so wonderful! xo

  9. Such a lovely dress! You look stunning, Kayla.


  10. Its great to have a dress that can be worn casually for anywhere you need to go. I have a couple that I always seem to reach for and they are a godsend!

  11. Minty goodness! I am very taken with this dress, I love the pinky tones against the mint, it's such a fab combination of colours. You look wonderful in it! xx

  12. Gorgeous dress! Such a great print and it looks so cute with your bike!
