For some reason this post has been really intimidating me and I am not sure why. I’ve been meaning to do it for so long. I think it might be because this is the first time I have ever gotten someone to take my photos for me as my Boyfriend was on hand for a change, or just because I really like this dress and I really wanted to do it justice, I’m not sure. Ever get so excited about a post that it actually puts you off doing it? Either way, I am sorry I didn’t share this with you sooner!
You might remember Whispering Ivy from my previous post about the Anita Dress, well they were actually kind enough to send me two dresses and I think this one of my favourite. Again, I had to size down with this one so be sure to check your measurements.
This time it’s the Beverley Dress, I think this dress is made for Summer and when I wear it I find my mood is instantly lifted. The colours are so bright and the pink details really set it off plus the cut is to die for (especially the neckline). It is really flattering on me and I feel really confident wearing it.
The material is pretty lightweight but not flimsy at all, however I am not a big fan of the belt. It’s really small so it looks a bit odd on me and I don’t really like thin material belts because they crease really easily and just look a bit flimsy.
I tried to style this in a Summer casual way with Jelly shoes from Boohoo, a Cath Kidston bag I got for my birthday and this oh so pretty and surprisingly cheap parasol and sunglasses from Bow and Crossbones. Hair-wise I kept it simple: trying to retro-up my lazy ponytail with this headscarf from Sink or Swim Bowtique and Pink heart bow clip from Crown and Glory. I didn’t pick a necklace as I couldn’t find one that sat at the right length for the dress. I feel like I need to try and match things better – I have so much to learn fashion-wise!
What do you think about Whispering Ivy’s summer range?
Dress is a PR sample, all opinions and honest and my own.
