In The Summer Sun – A Lane Bryant Review

*This dress was a gifted item

It’s a strange sort of summer this year. Usually there are endless conversations going on with people complaining about the heat, praying for a rain storm and hiding away in the shade. Now I love everything about the summer the sweltering heat, picnics in the park, the bright and beautiful colours everywhere and the excitement for holidays far away by the sea. This year we have had none of that. The conversation has been full of complaints as usual and this time we’re all whinging about the rain, cold days and short bursts of sunshine. Usually I’m in the background listening to what others have to say whilst i’m o the opposite oppinion and on the other side. This year I’m right there with them bitching away because summertime in London has been non existent with the odd hour of two of good weather.

Now when you’re someone who loves wearing a good sun dress and luxuriating in the sun, you make the most of the good days when they are here! Last weekend the sun was shinning, birds were singing and the need for layers was finally gone! I finally got to wear my gorgeous Fit & Flare Sleeveless Dress from Lane Bryant! A few weeks back they sent me some great bits to enjoy for the summer season and I haven’t really been able to wear any of them! I’m wearing this dress in a size 22 in the moderain plaid print. I have to say I love the feel of this one. It’s made out of a super silkly slinky fabric and I have to say it feels light as a feather on. A great option for a beach holiday or summer lunch.

The dress come complete with a zip fastening at the back and additional skinny belt. I was very impressed with the belt as 9 times out of 10 when a belt comes with a dress it has to be discarded due to poor fit. I had plenty of room in this dress and really enjoyed it’s loose fit feeling. Stopping just by the knee made wearing anti charf shorts very comfortable lol. I will say this, I love wearing bright and colourful clothes but I do lack in the orange and yellow department. I love that the print of the dress has splashes of orange, peach, beige, yellow and khaki green in box grids and lines.

Hanna let me borrow her Strappy Wooden heels, also from Lane Bryant and I think they totally complete the look. I was really surprised by how comfortable these shoes are! They are pretty high, really easy to walk in and virtually pain free! The only downside is that my left foot slid forward in the shoe in a little but to be honest I really didn’t care. When you feel good in the sunshine and enjoy those bright summer moments the little things don’t even bother you.

I’m hoping we get to enjoy more of this beautiful weather and I get to wear more summer items! Unfortunately it’s grey and wet as I write this post…

Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and wear it with a smile!
