If you have read any of my past posts, then you would know by now that comfort is super important to me when it comes to clothing.
I don’t have patience anymore for wearing ridiculous underwear to make a particular dress look good, or heels or wedges during the day because my legs would look better than they would in flats.
Naturally when it comes to special occasions I make an exception, but for everyday style, what I wear needs to be adaptable to my busy lifestyle.
Probably a couple of years back I would have worn this type of dress with a pair of wedges, (1) because they were more on trend than they are now and (2) because I would have been ready to feel a little discomfort to make my legs look longer.
Now? Nope. Comfy flats it is.
I wore this floral flowy mini-dress from Zara to visit the stunning Citaddella, in Gozo (If you are in Gozo you must go there and have lunch at the epic Riccardo’s). I just love how it comes out at the waist, giving a really flattering silouette. The fabric is feather-light which is a plus, considering the heat seems to be here to stay in Malta and Gozo. What I also love about it, is that once the weather gets a little bit cooler (if it ever does), I can pair it with a nice cardi and ballerina flats.
This dress is now all sold out but I have linked a couple of similar dresses available online as well as some other floral pieces which I absolutely love. (I WANT THEM ALL)
