I hope you've all had a fantastic week! The weather has turned quite gloomy in just a couple of days, so this outfit seems a little bit out of place, but when I wore this a couple of days ago the weather was beautiful and so sunny. The other day I even tanned, well half of my arms tanned:p Anyway I just wanted to share with you all a simple yet girly smart casual outfit :)
I usually don't go for shift dresses as I feel as though they aren't very flattering on myself. But you know that feeling when something looks good on the model and you think to yourself 'may be I could make it work'? Well I had one of those moments when I saw this dress. The model just looked really pretty in it, and plus I really liked the simplicity of the dress.
The crochet/lace detailing is just so feminine and the white is just perfect for spring. It's also quite light as well so definitely great for Summer/Spring especially on those (occasional) hot UK days hehe. I actually bought this dress from Amazon but it's out of stock at the moment, but I found a the same one on Sheinside. The one draw back of this dress is that it is slightly see through. Although that can be easily fixed by a skirt liner or some nude shorts/underwear. I read in some of the reviews that this dress is quite short on some, but this wasn't an issue for me. Although if you lifted both hands up really high then it would definitely be too short haha. If any of you were thinking of buying this, for size reference I got a S and am 5 ft and half an inch (that half is very important hehe) - I hope that helps!
I also loved the little button at the back - slightly strange you may think, but I just love the little peep hole it creates. It's just shows that a tiny detailing can go a long way, well at least in my little world anyway haha.
Having done two posts on them (Sequin Glitter Heels and Cinderella Inspired Outfits) you can already guess how much I love these glitter heels! As this is such a simple dress, by pairing it with these pointy glitter heels will add a bit of bling, but also jazz it up. Also with loving powder blue because of Cinderella I wanted to pair it with my favourite blue clutch :)
Finally, as I was wearing those glitter heels, I just wanted to add a bit of bling on the top by finishing the look of with this cute gem silver statement necklace. It's not too big to overpower the look, as I really wanted this outfit to be all about the dress and shoes. So this necklace keeps thing sparkly and also goes well with the heels.

I hope you all enjoyed this Spring/Summer outfit. If you have a date coming up this kind of outfit would be perfect, it's romantic, girly, and not too much. If you guys were going on something more casual you could always ditch the heels, grab some converses and a biker jacket. To create some shape, simply add a waist belt to cinch it in. Have you tried shift dresses before? Or what's your go to spring/summer dress at the moment?
Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care and speak soon.
