I must admit, I am not a massive fan of summer. I mean, I like the summer break, the positive moods and better weather, but I do prefer wrapping up in winter clothes. I guess that's what happens when you're a winter baby!

Recently, it's been really humid so I have come out of my comfort zone and began wearing shorts, dresses and skirts again. I do love a colourful summer dress! Quite a while ago, I was gifted a dress by JDWilliams for review. I must admit, it's taken me a really long time to review this dress due to personal issues, (and the whole self-conscious situation) so I am glad I got time to take some pictures of it by the sea; it really brings out the colours in the dress. I got to choose a dress from a few options and picked out this lovely black and flower patterned dress. I recently wore this dress on holiday and I absolutely love it!

The dress is very comfortable and fits me well. Their sizes are very generous which is unusual in the fashion industry; they are one of the only companies I found to be true to size. The fabric and colour can mean it gets quite hot in the heat, but it's perfect for cooler days. It's made from a textured polyester material which is quite 'in' at the moment and although I am not massively in love with the material, the pattern and lace-detailed shoulders definitely overpowers that. 

I styled this dress with my black sling back sandals that I actually bought last summer. I wear these sandals all the time - I absolutely adore them! I also added a brown leather-look tote bag for a bit more detail.

It's definitely an outfit that belongs in a sunny picture by the beach. Quite a formal looking dress but it can also be styled differently depending on where you are going. It's a glam looking little black dress to add to my collection!
