Flattering Holiday Dress

Today’s look features a flattering flamingo print holiday dress.

It’s lovely to put on a nice comfy jersey dress when on holiday and the dress I am wearing here today would be the perfect travelling companion. I was wearing this over the weekend as we had lovely weather here in the UK and it was a nice lightweight jersey dress to wear in the heat.

I plan on taking this on holiday this summer as it takes up hardly any room in the suitcase and it’s just a nice dress to wear. The print is a great one for summer too with little flamingoes. I had never had a flamingo print dress before and love this one as it was in quite a subtle colour mix of blue and black.

How I’m going to be wearing my holiday dress

This dress would be great for daytime as a beach coverupย or worn as a day dress with either sandals or trainers. I plan to wear this with Converse if the weather cools down as I love the laid back look and when you are on holiday sometimes you need to do a lot of walking around and I like to be comfy!
