I feel like I've gone back in time to 2012 Tor wearing a dress with a collar, this was practically my uniform back then! 

Now that the sun is shining again I thought I'd whip my legs out before it's too late, even if they are a bit pasty! This dress has been in my wardrobe a while and now that I've had it on, I wish I'd worn it sooner. It makes me feel happy, young and a bit care free, which may seem odd, yes it's just a dress, but it reminds me of something I'd wear a few years ago and I love that feeling.
I've not been feeling so great about myself recently, so I've been trying to dress in things that make me feel and look good... I knew Dorothy Perkins would come up trumps as I always think of their clothes as so flattering and this skater dress is perfect. 

I used to wear anything with a collar, and this contrasting white scalloped collar against the navy dress is so cute, it's a perfect daytime dress for Summer.
I've recently become more of a jeans and top kinda gal, which is polar opposite of the girly girl I used to be, so it's nice to change that up a bit... I've made myself a bit of a promise to wear more dresses throughout the Summer, so please keep me in check on that!

I purposely kept the look really simple with white t-bar dolly shoes (the perfect in-between weather shoe) and a little white bag to compliment the collar... navy and white is such a classic Summer colour palette, I feel like it can never look far wrong.
