I can’t get enough of summer dresses, even though it’s getting colder by the day here! So a parcel from ethical UK-based brand Love Ur Look Clothing was all the excuse I needed to make it feel like summer again. Their new season floral stripe picnic dress is the most whimsical warm weather dress around – read on to find out more!
I don’t think I’ve ever felt a dress so soft as this! It’s made from 100% cotton that feels like it’s been woven straight from clouds. The blue and white stripe pattern is gorgeous and different to anything else in my wardrobe, and the sweet pink and yellow flowers over the stripes are such a lovely design touch. I love the practical details in this piece as well; the buttons at the front are too cute, but they’re not functional (there’s a back zip) so it doesn’t take time to fiddle with them. The dress is fully lined in cotton so it’s still light but not enough to be sheer. There is also a matching tie belt included for a prime bow-tying opportunity, plus pockets! Topped off with cap sleeves and a slight ruffle at the hem, the floral stripe picnic dress really is summer in dress form.
I’m wearing my usual Love Ur Look size in this dress, an XS. The fit is great – it’s a little looser up top, but I’m happy with the dress not being super tight as I think it works better for this style. I love a longer length, and the hem here hits me at about mid-calf. Also I need to take a moment to rave about how comfy this dress is – ie, a lot!
The floral stripe picnic dress is currently available in almost all sizes via the Love Ur Look website for £52. Shipping is available worldwide from the UK, starting at £7 for international items.
