Boho Summer Dresses
Well, there is absolutely no denying that summer is well and truly underway here in Brisbane! My son only has two more days of school left and then he's on holidays for six weeks! My birthday is coming up in a few days and then there's Christmas of course and then the New Year! How is that even possible?! This year has really flown by! I really can't believe it.
Anyway, back to the outfits! With the humidity rising during the day, it is definitely the perfect time to wear cool and breezy dresses. Can you believe I actually only have four dresses in my entire wardrobe? As much as I love dresses on other people, it is hard to find a dress that flatters my figure. As an apple shape, most dresses tend to add bulk to my mid-section and make me look heavily pregnant!! Not a great look! While I don't care about fashion "do's" and "don'ts", I do care about looking pregnant when I'm not!!
Anyway (again), back to the outfits! I was delighted to rediscover the dress I'm wearing in the first outfit. I bought it at least ten years ago and hadn't worn it for years! I had remembered (incorrectly!) that it was too low cut and too short, so therefore it had been relegated to the deep dark depths of my wardrobe. The other day I thought I'd try it on, just out of curiosity, and was pleasantly surprised! I love its unique print and colour combo and it's cool and comfy. As the dress is sleeveless, I added my crochet cardi for coverage and some extra colour! I was happy to wear my gorgeous toucan bag again, as it is such a vibrant and fun piece. Perfect for summer!

The second dress I've had for a few years now and I really like the colour combo and print. It's also sleeveless, so I added a cardi for coverage again. It was fun accessorising this outfit with some boho beads and sandals. I also love my Lily Bloom bag, which is made from recycled plastic.
