Gosh I really just do love linen don’t you? It’s such an easy fabric to wear in the summer humidity, and can be very easily dressed up and down too, adding versatility to your wardrobe.

So I was really excited when the lovely team at Feathers Boutique sent me this divine linen shift dress to have a play with. (Available in sizes XS (8) – XXL (18) –  I’m wearing the size L to accommodate baby bump but as a 12 would normally wear the M.)

The first thing that came to mind was to show you guys what I instantly saw in it – how versatile it is! What a great addition to your summer wardrobe.

The beauty of this shape dress is that is really is made for everyone – treat it like a blank canvas. Add the personal touches to make it fit your body shape, and your style personality. What fun you can have with it!

So I wanted to show you just three of the ways you could style this little number for different occasions in your life, here they are….

Clean and Classic

Tan and white. What a combo right? You could wear this look to work, or out for a casual dinner, or even out shopping or running errands on the weekend.

You can make anything ‘weekend casual” just by adding trainers and a denim jacket right? This is the perfect example! Put your own personal style twist on it by adding another accessory like a hat or necklace that is unique to you.
