Confidence is a tricky thing. We’re all chasing it, hoping to feel it and keep hold of it for as long as we can. Not having any can make us miserable, unsure of ourselves, and in my case; even turn down amazing opportunities. So it’s a big deal when you manage to find an item of clothing that not only feels good, looks great, but also gives you a fresh wave of confidence!
I had this recently, when I was kindly sent this pretty dress from EMP. This beautiful, blue stripe, almost rockabilly style dress* is from the brand Dolly & Dotty. It’s made from cotton and elastane, giving it a wonderfully soft and fitted feel; while also being so comfortable!
As soon as I tried this on, I fell in love! The long flowing skirt means this is just enough coverage so I don’t feel self conscious getting my pale legs out; but it’s breezy and light making it perfect for Spring days. I loved teaming this with cute blue accessories to match the stripes; my perfect blue beret, and mini cardigan. I also wore this with casual, flat pumps as that’s much more my style – but you can see this dress would look radiant with a glamorous pair of heels too!
I feel like I’ve found the absolute perfect Spring dress, that can be styled to suit the weather; and I’m so pleased with it! I felt happy, confident, and really pretty while wearing this. You can find it here if you’d like to try it for yourself, and EMP also have a massive range of other pretty dresses for Spring too! My personal favourites include the Sweet Cherry Dress (imagine this with a cute colourful tee and some Converse!) and the baby pink Marie dress (perfect for Aristocats fans!).
Let me know what you guys think, and if you think you’d rock this too!
