Dressing up for the Spring or the summer

Each year as things start to head up, I am on the hunt for wearable summer dresses. I’m looking for a dress that you can wear anytime and anywhere – just throw it on and run out the door.
Sometimes you find that outfit that just seems right for every occasion. As season change, there’s always those few pieces that you constantly find yourself reaching for. So far this summer, my white wrap dress from Bardot has been that piece – it has quickly become one of my most worn dresses.
Dress it up or dress it down – from a day at the beach, to dinner at my favourite restaurant – the options are endless!
I stumbled across it by complete chance and have been enjoying it as an addition to my wardrobe ever since. I was attending a friends 30th ‘Mexican Fiesta’ birthday party and the event called for a costume. After wandering around the shops trying on multiple outfits that screamed ‘Mexican Fiesta’ but just didn’t seem right for me, I became frustrated. I picked this one up, tried it on and fell in love. I styled the dress with a red flower crown, red earrings and gold accessories. While not the most obvious ‘Mexican’ costume, I managed to somewhat adhere to the them while still feeling like myself – win/win!

White is not a colour that I commonly reach for but as my skin starts to slowly darken thanks to many days at the beach, my love for it is growing. Although, my clumsy nature and white might end up being a love hate relationship. Approximately 30 minutes into wearing this dress for the first time, I spilt a whole taco covered in tabasco sauce down the front. But don’t worry, my friend combined with her trusty bottle of ‘StainGo’ and about 30 minutes of dabbing saved the day!
