Soft Summer Cotton: White Dobby Cotton Dress from Simply Be

A lot of supposed style tips just need chucking straight out. Like "fat girls can't wear white". Um, are you kidding? Come summer, there are few things quite as pivotal to your seasonal wardrobe as a white dress. This summer I totally fell in love with this romantic dobby cotton summer dress from Simply Be. 

Brown Leather Belt - Asos 
Red Mock Croc Handbag - Thrifted 

Simply Be can always be relied upon for a their great selection of plus size items, and this summer their offering of reasonably priced  plus size day dresses has been gorgeous. I included this one in a lust list a couple of weeks back, and now it's in my wardrobe! Yay! This White dobby cotton dress from Simply Be is the perfect day dress. It's kinda got that prairie influence to it, which is a boho trend I love, especially when paired with brown leather, metallics and turquoise. Gives the look a bit of a cowgirl feel. The top layer is a soft, floaty, thin dobby cotton, the bodice featuring a central lace placket, and soft white tassels. It's a short skater style dress, the lining hitting me mid thigh and the overlay sitting above the knee (I'm 5'8). In fact in a couple of pics you may see my lace edged comfort shorts peeking out from under the lining! I love the full floatiness of the skirt - it really creates a romantic silhouette. 


I ordered the dress in a size 22, and it has a loose-ish comfortable fit. This combined with the thin fabric makes it perfect for sweaty summer days, and I'm very much looking forward to pairing it was flip flops for the daytime when I head to the Caribbean for my long awaited summer holiday in November, or wearing it, as I have here, with some strappy heeled sandals for a more evening look.
