The Button Down Dress

Ah the dress. I would like to say you either love em or you hate em, but to be honest I have always been on the fence when it comes to dresses.

Being a shorty and also fairly busty, I do struggle with outfits for events like weddings, birthdays etc. You would think being a stylist myself it would be mega easy for me, but no it’s not! I love to dress other people and find that comes quite naturally but when it’s down to me to dress myself for a nice occasion, I find it a bit of a headache.

I don’t want to look like I am applying for a job at Hooters but then I also don’t want to be mistaken for a nun.

God bless the button down dress!

I absolutely love this little red number from New Look. It really ticks all the boxes and is such a great fit. It is so flattering in all the right places. It could be styled with a dressy heeled sandal or for a completely casual feel, I would pair it with some white trainers(easy!).

This doesn’t seem to be available on the New Look website anymore, but you can still get it here on ASOS.

My bag is from the good old mothership we all know and love, Zara.

And my sandals are from Matt & Nat. I got mine via ASOS but you can also get a similar pair  here.


Thanks for reading! x
