What I Wore | Forever 21 Dress

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

I packed last minute for a weekend at my boyfriends and all I remembered to grab to wear the next day was this dress and sunglasses.

I've really missed wearing summer dresses as I've been living in high-waisted jeans and t-shirts lately (totally obsessed with my Topshop Joni pair). I’d like to wear dresses more but I barely have any, probably because I’m really fussy when it comes to buying them. Annoyingly a lot of dresses from my favourite high-street stores seem to come up quite short on me. I'm only 5'6" but I must have disproportionately long legs! I really love the pattern and halter neck on this Forever 21 dress, and though I would prefer it was a teensy bit longer I decided to buy it anyway. 

It was such a lovely weekend this dress was perfect for exploring the gardens of an Estate in Essex. I was wearing it with a slouchy cream blazer but I really didn't need it with the heat so took it off instantly.

I'm definitely going to add a few more summer dresses to my wardrobe soon!

  1. I'm 5'6" as well, but my legs are like 75% of my body, LoL, so I have the exact same issue. I don't like to wear a lot of super short dresses, and the hemline on a lot of F21 is higher than I'd like. I actually bought this exact dress online because I really liked the print. Unfortunately when I tried it on, the top part was so big. There was so much extra fabric in the front, so I ended up returning it. It looks really great on you though.

    1. Thank you! It's such a pain isn't it? I wear a lot of my casual dresses to work too, and all my colleagues ever say is that my dresses are too short.
      The top part of this dress is huge! If I didn't have the elasticated waist I definitely would have had to belt this dress or get a smaller size x

  2. I am 5'5" that's why I mostly sit down in my photos when I don't wear high heels. You are one beautiful woman, Missy! You would look great in anything, but the flats stole the show for me. Kisses!

  13. I love this dress on you, it looks amazing. I'm way shorter than you and I have trouble finding dresses to my liking also, they're always way to short for my comfort :)
