So this past weekend was the Tulip Festival here in Ottawa and I happened to go on a very nice sunny day. Happy coincidence or great planning.. who knows? Anyways, with days like these I love to be able to wear a nice summer themed dress which makes me feel good as well as matches the colour palette outside LOL.
I’d like to start off by saying this dress really surprised me. As a person who’s barely 5 feet tall it’s extremely difficult to find flattering dresses and especially longer ones. This dress sits just past my knees on me. It’s a-line style but it hugs me in the important spots such as my waist and chest so i don’t look like the fabric is wearing me versus the other way around. This colour also looks good on pale skin so I would definitely recommend it and its ESPECIALLY a great colour for the transition of spring to summer.
The back of the dress is also something that sold me on it. It has a criss-cross shape while still keeping an open back for hot days such as this past Saturday. I am still absolutely in love with it and I’ve had this dress in my closet for a while now. I tend to get bored of my clothes very quickly (which is a huge fault and why I’m such a shopaholic) BUT I have a feeling I won’t get tired of this piece too quick 🙂
I paired this dress with a cute black over the shoulder satchel and beige sandals. Also added this picture because it was absolutely hilarious to me that I’m shorter than this tulip. The links for what I’m wearing will be below:
