It wasn’t until I was listing the items in this outfit for this post that I realised I’m almost decked out head to toe in items from Collectif.

I’ve worn this pencil dress a few times previously, in fact it featured on my first ever outfit blog post back in March last year. As wiggle dresses go, it’s fairly comfortable and easy to wear. The structured cotton and slightly looser fit mean it’s not too figure hugging, and the front pleat allows room to walk in normal sized steps.  Continue reading “Lulu Hun wedges and a pencil dress”
