In today’s post I’m sharing my five favourite midi dresses. Now I have a lot to choose from & it was bloody tough narrowing it down to just 5. These 5 dresses are true wardrobe heroes, I reach for them over and over. Thats why they made the top 5! I haven’t included any of the dresses I’ve made as I’m working on sharing my “hand-made” wardrobe style post with y’all very soon! I’ve just got ti finish off a couple more items before I can share it.
V-neck Ditsy Dress
I picked this dress up from Zara at the end of August, now I love Zara but its bloody double the price out here so I think our love affair is over. This being the last thing I purchased from them, least its a good’n! In all fairness I probably could have sized down but I love how floaty it is, its great for the monthly bloat and feeling put-together when your not. Looks great with my red heels if I’m feeling fancy but equally good with my trusted Vans. To be honest, I wear trainers will all my dresses so its a must they work with my very casual footwear faves.
That Spotty Dress
Yes, it is THAT Zara dress. I got this back in something like February or March 2019 before I saw everyone in London wearing it. I remember being on the tube and two other women were wearing the dress in the same damn carriage as me. Despite the embracement of twinning with other ladies on the tube and art least one other girl at work I still love this dress. I’ve only seen one other lady wearing it while out here but thankfully I wasn’t in the dress at the same time! My only slight regret is not buying another to dye. I would love it in red or pale pink maybe? Plus I love wearing it with my checked vans for a nice print clash.
Coming up Daisies
This is a very new contender, my momma ordered it as a treat from Boohoo and when it arrived I had no idea who it was from and had to wait till the next day to find out (time zones problems). Its a lot more booby than Im used to and has a sexy side slide which Im quiet into. I love the colour and the print and just feel good wearing it, which is always a must in my book!
50’s Inspired Gingham
This ones been around for a good while, this gingham number is from Collectif and I was lucky enough to be gifted it. Its one of those dresses that everyone complements when I wear it, it also has pockets which is always an added bonus! I love its silhouette nipping me in at the waist but has a lovely midi length. Again this one looks great with my trainers, sandals or even heels. Its an all rounder and I’m so pleased to have it in my collection.
I call this my Flintstones dress, it reminds me of what high fashion Wilma would wear. I actually picked this dress up on a whim while shopping in Topshop tin Oxford street with Josie. I was buying this bag for my honey moon and thought the dress would be a good hen party dress. I rushed it to the tills without even trying it on and I’m so glad I did as it soon sold out! I love the clashing polka-dots and its asymmetrical hem line, well in fact the whole dress is asymmetrical! Its just one of those dresses that has the wow factor and just makes me feel great. Dresses that stay in my wardrobe are those that are versatile, comfortable to wear and look good.
I enjoyed creating this post and I think I’ll turn this into a mini series if your game for it? Thinking sharing my updated favourite handbags and favourite lippies, that sort of thing.
