The dress you need for summer

I packed a huge suitcase of clothes for my trip to the Philippines, but of course I only wore about a quarter of the contents. My favourite pieces were on high rotation, but none more so than this embroidered white dress by Spell & The Gypsy Collective. With its intricate, vintage inspired embroidered detailing, its the perfect dress to throw on over a bikini when you want to wear something dressier than your denim cut-offs to dinner. If you’re on the shorter side of average like me, you’ll love the length of this dress. Unlike floor-length dresses that can leave you feeling swamped, this dress has a shorter hemline at the front, making it perfect for balmy summer evening walks on the beach.

This exact dress has sold out, but Spell & The Gypsy Collective have quite a few similar styles that I already have my eye on. Peruse here.
