I absolutely fell in love with this blue and white Free People dress the moment I laid eyes on it, so I knew I had to have it! It also comes in a gorgeous red/orange color combination, a yellow print, a perfect for fall wine color, and a boho brown. As you can see above, this dress ranks about a 12/10 for “twirlability”, and I received a lot of compliments on it, which is always fun. Wearing it made me feel quite regal, and it was the perfect dress to explore London in.
For reference, I am 5’7″ and wore a small in this, which is my usual size in Free People clothing. I think it fits very true to size, and I didn’t even have to worry about hemming it, which is nice, because I’m not very tall. I paired this dress with my favorite travel shoes, my Tieks in California Navy, and I was comfortable all day long. My new favorite handcrafted metal purse came with me all around the United Kingdom, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful handbags I’ve ever seen. This bag sold out in the US the same day I posted about it on my Instagram, but here it is in stock in a gorgeous gold. You can still order it from Australia, here.
We were in the United Kingdom during the hottest days in their recorded history, and I was able to keep cool with this flouncy Free People piece. I also added this straw hat, last seen here, to help keep the sun out of my eyes. I don’t know why I ever tried to survive without a giant sunhat! You can find a few similar hats here, here, and here, all under $30!
