In celebration of one of my first ever blog posts back in 2016, I’ve decided to re-style the shirt dress and grey jumper combo, for a fresher summer feel. I remember taking the photos for ‘University Visits’ in Brighton, while looking at Brighton university. That feels like a lifetime ago as I’m sitting here writing my Dissertation at the end of my journey at University of Southampton. While writing this blog post I had a sudden prang of nostalgia as I recalled that post. It’s funny how much we progress, but barely take time to reflect on how far we’ve come. Maybe its lockdown allowing me to do so!
Anyway, getting back to the fashion…Shirt dresses are timeless, they’re always in fashion…Hence why I’m still wearing them. The beauty of them is they can be dressed up or styled casually. The way I styled the shirt dress this time can only be described as ‘darling’. The charming combination of the wrap over white shirt dress with waist bow tie, the Zara square neckline, puff sleeve and crop-length grey knitted jumper and the pink ballet slippers with ankle tie screams spring 2020. The pink satin ballet slipper look takes me back to pointe classes growing up. The contrast of the square neckline with the shirt dress collar adds an edge to the precious style. On a warmer day the jumper can be subtracted, leaving just the shirt dress, which demands attention alone. This look is en pointe!
