It feels strange to be sitting here typing in a jumper whilst the wind hurls handfuls of rain against my window, when just a few days ago I was swanning about in a dress and sandals. The glimpse of summer towards the end of last week was so welcome and so needed, and it was a real treat to wear some summer clothes for a change!
I was sent this beautiful dress by online brand 405 Story. I absolutely love the shape of it - midi, with a tiered skirt and short sleeves. It came with a belt but I wanted to wear it more as a day dress, so I took that off and dressed it down with straw accessories and tan shoes. I took a leather jacket with me when I went out but I didn't need it, which was lovely!
405 Story is an online womenswear label inspired by the sunny coasts of California. The pieces are quirky, feminine and modern, and I love the easy styling of this dress which would look as lovely dressed up with heeled sandals as it does with flatforms for a day at the beach. The dress costs £99 and you can enjoy 10% off your order when you sign up to 405 Story emails.
Now, I am hoping the sun comes out again soon so I can wear this again!
