The Perfect Summer Dress (For £35!)

Come Summer I am always on the look out for the perfect dress that I can wear in the warmer months, be that in England or on holiday. There's nothing I love more than a boho inspired number and this off the shoulder crochet dress couldn't be more perfect. It's white, it's crochet and it's the perfect length. What more could a girl ask for? As you may have seen from last weeks post, I am a huge fan of the bardot neckline. There's something so elegant about baring a bit of shoulder. It's a slight tease without actually showing any cleavage. The shoulder cleavage as I like to call it. As I was never gifted in the boobie department, shoulders naturally seem like the next best thing. That's what I like to tell myself at least. So there you have it, a perfect summer dress at a perfect price....£35 to be precise. The material is light, with a lining that doesn't make this dress transparent. I probably wouldn't even blink an eyelid if it was priced at around the £50 mark in Topshop. If one colour wasn't enough, it also comes in black and nude. All of which would look amazing paired with a denim or leather jacket. I went for a UK 8 in this dress for those of you who were wondering and would say that it's pretty true to size. I can't wait to wear this when I have slightly more bronzed limbs, paired with my favourite tan accessories of course. 

As we now move into the month of June, it's officially the start of summer although arguably it doesn't feel too much like summer from where I'm sitting in rainy London. With that said, I hope you have enjoyed my series of holiday posts from my recent trip to Mykonos. Whilst I still have some more content to share with you all, I would love to know your thoughts so far. I am also thinking of sharing a Mykonos vlog with you as I captured some amazing footage so do also let me know if you would be interested in seeing that too. On that note, I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that your four day week hasn't been too shabby. Don't forget to stop by on Monday where I will be sharing another holiday look from my amazing time in Mykonos.

    welcome to marieprom.co.uk

  9. So a cute summer dress! Think I'd go up a size in this to prevent tightness around the bust as sometimes Bardot necklines can be too tight and budge. It looks lovely on you! Xo


    1. I totally know what you mean but this dress actually is quite stretchy around the bust so hopefully you should be good with your usual size. I got an 8 and would say its true to size. Hope this helps. x

  10. I love this outfit and it's making me super excited for my holiday seeing your holiday outfit posts! x


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog. I hope you stop by again soon.
