Just a quick post today whilst the sunshine lasts! I wore this same dress and cardigan on a chilly day back in March, styled up for the late winter weather. Now the sun is out, this sundress is such an easy piece to throw on without having to think too much about putting an outfit together. One of my favourite things about dresses is how easy they are to wear. Although I wear a lot of separates, I often find it hard to pair the right tops with the right bottoms.

Another reason I love the sunshine is because it involves a minimal amount of photo editing. The images in my previous post were taken in the last of the evening light, and they needed a fair bit of tweaking to be able to see any detail at all. On a bright sunny day though, nature does all the hard work itself. Continue reading “Midi skirt and a white shirt”
