These photos were taken a few weeks ago after the Fifties Fair, I came home for half an hour, changed outfits and off I was to the waterfront with mum and the dogs. I had been dreaming of wearing this outfit and what better way to end what was already a great day then to go for a walk by the water in another wonderful outfit!? My hair held up the whole day which is always a good thing, with only a bit of frizz towards the end of the day.
I have mentioned before that I have been sizing up for The Seamstress of Bloomsbury dresses (especially those with buttons) and I did the same for the Primrose dress. I am thanking the team at Rock n Romance again for their always helpful advice as the fit is fantastic. The bust and shoulders are comfy to wear and there is no gaping (which I experienced previously in size 8) and although there is a bit of extra room in the waist the belt takes care of that.
I loved bringing the yellow out on the print of this dress with my earrings and this adorable bag. This is going to be a great dress for spring and summer, as much as I like my thin strap dresses with open backs for summer it is nice to have one with a bit more coverage, especially when it is made of beautiful light cotton.
This style and print has a really great authentic vintage feel to it and I couldn't help but fall in love with the seaside print, it is definitely a perfect dress for me. I will continue to add nautical and tropical print clothing to my wardrobe as spending my time by the water makes me so happy and when I match that is even better. Bonus points for the front pockets on this dress, I love when my dresses have pockets but I am a sucker for cute front ones.. I usually put my phone in one and sometimes spare change in the other (for an ice-cream by the beach).. Or lipstick - whatever I need at the time haha!!
