A Delicate Storm

Summer is the best time to wear floating, delicate dresses, in white or colour. I just wish the proper summer arrives soon in the UK, I'm still wearing jackets!

As usual, the designers do it so well!

{all from Net-a-porter.com}

But the high street has some nice alternatives too, it may not be as delicate but it's 1/5 of the price tag!

Happy Monday everyone :)

The 20 day Exam & Revision period officially start today! So I'm afraid I won't be able to reply to comments much, but I have prepared some posts so posting should be normal. Can't wait for my exams to be over to catch up with you all! xxxx

Love the dresses, I am planning to wear one similar (I think it is actually a vintage nighty) for a photo shoot I have upcoming for my birthday. It is still Spring though, so I am glad there's plenty of time to wear them all summer as well!
Do well on your exams! : )

Amanda said...

L.O.V.E. French Connection dresses, too bad they are all rather out of my price range. Maybe if I save up, but there are too many favorites!

Rachel said...

hmm, very grecian and sexy!

Joann said...

Ahhh flowy dresses and skirts. If only I wasn't so busy running about and all, I would choose these to don on once in a while instead of shorts all the time.

MizzJ said...

I say wear the dresses anyways and just pair them with tights, booties and scarves! All those pale, neutral colors are so pretty and great alternatives to just wearing white for that clean, pure look.

Julia said...

These are so soft! Like being in a turkish bath!

Emily said...

I love those French Connection dresses! Just as gorgeous as the others! And it's still cold and wet here too, I'm freezing today, I didn't dress nearly warm enough I totally threw on a long-sleeve shirt under my dress!! -e

Dream Sequins said...

It's very chilly in New York at the moment, too. We're being constantly teased by the sun. Love these floaty dresses. And as for the dress designed by Olsen twins-- you have to give them credit for sticking it out as long as they have! I like the E and James line better than The Row.

aubrey said...

dresses are the most wonderful things a girl can have..i like all these dresses!

Lizzy said...

I love the misty feel in all of the photos, like they were taken in a fogged up bathroom.

Those dresses are ultra feminine! Love them! Speaking of jackets, I can't wait to peel them off, but the weather here is not cooperating much either.

Good luck on your exams!

I love summer sun dresses. I plan on only wearing them this summer. Hopefully I can find really great ones at thrift stores since there's no way I could ever afford any fancy brand dresses.

Aww wow, I love light beautiful dresses like these - chiffon and stuff. Inspirational, thanks for putting these up!

Good luck with your exams...I have five weeks off for study leave and my first one is tomorrow: eeek!

In fact...WHY AM I ON HERE?!
Oh right, it's because it's addictive :D
