Beauty ‘n Fashion A printed summer dress


Beware… today’s outfit screams summer! This lovely dress has got such a summery print with all the plants and flowers on it… let me show you how I styled it for a trip to Jane Austen country!

I bought this dress at Ly-Lou, a shop which specializes in retro clothing Β (although this dress is not particularly retro) and was helped by the very friendly and honest shop owner, Kelly. The dress is from the Irish brand Avoca Anthology.


I was immediately drawn towards this dress for several reasons. First of all of course for the print. I just love the bold leaves print! Second of all, the shape of the dress as I instantly knew it would be perfect for my body type. And third of all the neckline! I know these kinds of necklines look good on my as you can see in this outfitpost and in this one.


When I tried on the dress I felt so comfortable in it πŸ™‚Β So how to style it?!

For my trip to Chawton (the village where Jane Austen spent her final, but most productive years… but more on that in a later travelpost!!!) I wore this dress with my denim jacket and a soft pink scarf. The dress is quite classic, but the jacket makes it a bit younger in my opinion.

Lucky for me, the weather was so nice I could take off the jacket and scarf most of the time!


I also added a belt and as we walked for hours on end that day, I opted for my comfy wedge sandals from Gabor. My giant tote (from H&M) could hold all the necessities for a day out and as the sun was out regularly, I wore my Dior sunglasses (which I bought at least 8 years ago, but I still like them!!).

Do you like this dress? Any tips on how to style it otherwise? Let me know in the comments!

Love, Kathleen

PS: More about Chawton in next Thursday’s travelpost!!
