Green Belle

I'm never one to turn down a dress, particularly from a brand I like, so when Pink Clove got in touch to see if I'd like a dress, I couldn't resist this little green number. I'm not usually one for green, but because of that I thought I'd give it a try in this lovely swing dress design. I guess you could call this a summer dress, but Autumn has been so warm for the most part so there was no need to throw on a pair of ankle boots, but instead I went for my favourite flats from Simply Be.
Dress: Gifted (via Pink Clove)
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: Simply Be
From previous experience with Pink Clove, I knew they ran big so I opted to size down. I'm glad I did because it's the perfect fit for my small waist. I love that this dress is so fitted on the top half of the body and then scoops out for the timeless swing-style skirt. The gathering on the bust is such a lovely touch and that's one of the things Pink Clove do so well, they really take pride in their attention to detail. I would wear this style of dress anytime of the year and it can easily be dressed up or down with just a little adjustment in footwear and accessories.

The straps are thick and although there's no zip, the material is so stretchy (96% Polyester 4% Elastane) you can wiggle into it with no trouble at all. The dress also came with a belt but I actually love the look without it. There was a time when you wouldn't see me without a belt, but because this dress is so well fitted it really wasn't necessary. This is now my third Pink Clove dress and I have no doubt I'll be adding to that collection many more times.

'til next time.

Love and hugs,
