When I found out I was the lucky winner of the Ahoy dress on the Bohemian Traders IG giveaway – I almost popped with pleasure, I let out a ‘Yeah’ complimented with a excited and obligatory *fist-pump*.
I was at work at the time, in the back office and couldn’t believe my luck when I checked my phone.
Although, it’s kinda strange to say, but when I entered I had the feeling I would win…
Does that ever happen to you?
Pity it doesn’t happen with the lottery eh 😉
Anyway, delighted doesn’t even come close to how pleased I was with the news…but more about the ‘Ahoy’ little beauty soon.
Today is all about Linen.
Crisp as can be, cool linen.
It’s a Bohemian Traders dress that I have simply fallen head over heels in love with.
One that suits my Classic Style personality to perfection.
But you already knew I was Classic girl right?
Great jeans, jackets, stripes and simple dresses have always been my thing. Along with a safe colour palette, with only a hint of colour.
I’m pushing my fashion boundaries a touch at the moment pretties, by adding the odd Kimono/Cape paired back with jeans/tee – go me!
But overall, classic simplicity always wins the day.
So can you imagine my excitement at finding the perfect summer LINEN dress to add to my wardrobe?
Now, one thing I am blessed with, is the ability to spot a good frock at a 100 paces. One that won’t date and can be worn anywhere from the beach to dinner.
This is that frock.
I’m wearing a Medium…I also have mayor leg envy from the girl standing next to me 😉
So listen up lovelies…because this one might just work for you too.
Because it’s piece that I will won’t be able to resist wearing at every given opportunity.
A piece that I know will stay around for seasons to come, due to its simplicity and wearability.
How do I know?
- It’s 100% Linen
- Cool, comfortable and perfect for summer.
- Stylish Boyfriend Shirtmaker Style.
- Covers a multitude of sins
Total genius in both fabric and design I say. Total. Genius.
It’s also a dress I had spookily been eyeing up on the Bohemian Traders website when their new SS collection was launched.
Match made in heaven yes – or just the fashion planets aligning?
I’ll take either.
Now as I mentioned in this post, my love of linen means that being creased doesn’t bother me in the slightest.
It’s comes with the territory, it’s a trade-off I’m willing to cope with to gain comfort and breathability. I just embrace it and never give it a second thought.
Let’s face it, who wants to sweat it out all summer long in Polyester? A few creases here and there, just add character and authenticity in my book.
I’m wearing a nude slip from Bella Bodies (just the best slip EVER – let’s arrange a date to talk about this next week lovelies) which worked a treat in being almost transparent under the dress (I don’t own a nude seamless dress/slip, only black/white).
Or just wear your favourite nude bra and undies – do whatever makes you feel drop dead gorgeous and confident, because this ALWAYS gets my vote.
Length wise, I’m 5’8″ – as you can see the dress sits at a perfect length just above my knee. Any shorter, and I might break out into a cold sweat!
So I’ve decided to just add a few pieces from my wardrobe, to show how I might wear this cute little number – depending on my mood of course…
If this dress tickles your fancy as much as it does mine, Bohemian Traders have a snazzy little Spend & Save offer going on at the moment.
Spend $150 take $50 off. Spend $300 take $100 off. Spend $600 take $200 off…can you guess what other pieces I have my eye on?
*This dress was gifted to me for editorial consideration
Are you a Boho kinda chic? Or a classic type like me?
Brought anything from the Bohemian Traders collection lately?
Yes its Wednesday, so its time to show some love to the Glam Squad gals over at Kimba Likes place.
