Vive les volants!

The summer season is a great time for dress lovers like me. Skirts and dresses are just so much better for creating a comfortable and classy style than wearing (bermuda) shorts, don’t you agree? That’s why I wear a lot of skirts and dresses in summer, making sure I can cycle in them of course.

Since I also love adding some kind of feminine touch to my outfits, this simple dress with a few volants is just perfect for me. It is really easy to cycle in and the length is a comfortable one for in the classroom. The dress has got some great features for petites as well, since both monochrome dressing and a high waist make you look taller.

You can see that I am wearing a top under it; always a safe thing to do as a teacher!

Dress: H&M, Ankle boots: Stravers Shoes (previous season), Bag: H&M

If I change the practical and comfortable low heal shoes for a pair of high heel ankle boots, the dress is perfect for a night out as well. Have you already added some volants to your wardrobe this season?

  1. No, no volants in my wardrobe. You look ever so nice in this dress though. So volants are definitely good for you. I like both shoes with it. I can never resist to add a pop of bright colour to a black and white outfit. But that is personal.

    1. Hi Greetje. That is exactly what is so great about creating your own style: you can play it by your own rules. Thanks for your compliment.
