The Fashion Post | The 'I'm on me 'olidays' Dress


Scrolling through instagram, it is easy to become inundated with the same picture. You know the one i'm talking about, the one of a girl, on her holidays in an exotic country, posing in the street wearing a flowy summer dress, usually captioned 'feel like the dancing emoji lol'. No hate girls, because clearly I am one of you. 

The original title of this post was 'The Perfect Summer Dress' however, before hitting the publish button I thought, how fucking cliche am I?? Those second thoughts drove me to rewrite the post, and furthermore second guess my entire blog. Do I really want to carry on creating posts that are mildly interesting, but not that much really, because there are millions of others who have been there and done that before me, and done it better.  




The answer is no, I don't want to. But I did spend sixty quid on this dress, so I am definitely sharing this one. Let's scrap the whole 'Oh I love this dress, it is just so perfect for Summer!!' and get to the point. 

I bought this dress because I was going on a weeks holiday and I wanted to look decent at least one out of the seven nights. I opted for a wrap dress because A: it is stylish, and B: because it allows for maximum carb consumption, without running the risk of exploding from your outfit. Aaand I went with red because I envisioned exactly how these outfit pictures would look, and I knew the colour red against an old Italian door would look superb. Job done. 



Someone please tell me, why does every girl feel the need to spend fifty or so euro, on a dress that we know will only wear once, because the weather at home would rarely allow for us to don something as pretty. Only to repeat the same process the following year, nearing the time of our next holiday. 

Eventually we accumulate a shit load of summer dresses, that are worthless in the baltic conditions that we spend all of our time in. Sense. Please?

Dress: Topshop | Sandals: Forever21 (Similar) | Bag: Vintage 


So there you have it, the dress and post that will become just another drop in the blogger's 'summer dress' ocean, that I will probably never wear again. Don't judge me, I was on me 'olidays.

  1. This dress looks lovely on you! I have so many dresses that I have bought for holidays and then never worn again, I really don't know what our logic is but I think we love an excuse to buy a new pretty dress :) xx

  4. The feeling to experience something and tried it is something worth the risk despite the sacrifices. Atleast you can say Ive worn that already and I know the feels. Rather than wondering all your life how it feels. :D

  5. You look so pretty in this dress! I love the tie details on the sleeves. I think you can re-wear this dress for a summer wedding? Or on weekends when you brunch with girlfriends :) I wear dresses everywhere so that's how I justify myself for keep buying them haha xD

  23. Such a pretty coral dress! You look lovely too bad it will be worn once only. I also don't know why we have to spend that much and only wear once. I actually try to wear summer dress at work and put on a cardigan or jacket on our relax days.

  24. I love how you decided to not copy what everyone is doing and make such an original post! The dress looks gorgeous and if it allows unnoticed carb-overloading like you said, then it's even better :P
