When me eyes caught this dress in graphic zig zag print, I just had to try it on.. and bought it!

You might not believe me when I tell you I don’t have any summer dresses in my closet. Just fancy dresses for a dinner party or very casual to go to the beach. Nothing for just daily basis. When the temperature rises I love to wear a dress, it’s comfy and it makes me feel good. So I was forced to shop, the irony! Just strolling around in the stores and accidentally walking into this cute number!

For years I’ve been telling you how C&A keeps on surprising me though it’s never on my shop route. This shop keeps surprising me, about the prices but also about the quality. I know when I was younger I joked about the abbreviation being cheap & awfull, lol. Since I’m grownup I think it’s rather cheap & awesome! A while ago I bought this dress and I’ve worn it already a couple of times. Often these shape dresses don’t fit me at they’re straight and well, I’m not. So I was so happy to see it sliding over my thighs. The tunnel at the waist is adjustable which I love, to add some shape.

Some other things I like to buy here are shorts and jeans. I noticed that despite their low prices, they still use nice materials. Which is something I pay attention to, being a fashion girl. This dress is made of polyester crepe and wears light. Underneath I wear a cotton singlet which makes the polyester not a problem, even on warm days. The necklace is a perfect match, I bought it the other day and has different color pendants. Cute and cheap, just how I like it. These sunglasses you’ve seen before, what a treat sunnies on prescription.

This dress is from the Yessica collection and is available in this zig zag print and in a second colour combination. Here I’m wearing the largest size which is EU 48, fits a UK20. As it’s a wider model and the fabric has a little stretch it wears comfortable. At the back there’s a drawstring which you can knot and prevents the shoulders from sagging of. The pockets are cute too, makes it a bit more casual.

Navy is the new black for me nowadays because a little softer than black. Though I had to think how to combine it when it comes to shoes because I love to match! Besides this look, I’ve worn it with sneakers and a denim jacket, casual. So it can be dressed down as well, I love to do this.  The red boots I have would suit just fine but more for fall, then I thought of these old cuties. The cognac brown color is a great match and the green clutch is also a tone from the print. Oh and I almost forgot, I dyed my hair, do you like it? Or at least the hair dresser did.

    Leuk! Ik had deze jurk al gezien ergens op Facebook. Volgens mij bij Edith? Bij mijn plaatselijke C&A vond ik ‘m vorige week niet en online is hij uitverkocht in mijn maat 🙁

      Klopt, ik had ‘m toevallig samen met Els gekocht en Edith zette ‘m erna online. Haha we vinden ‘m allemaal leuk.
      Oh uitverkocht? Dan even vragen bij jouw C&A of ze ‘m elders kunnen halen, doen ze vaak hoor. Liefs, Josine
