This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress

Have you ever seen a dress where you just have to have it? Nothing else matter but owning this dress? Well the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress from Lindy Bop was one such dress.

I’ve been having my eyes on it for so long – well a year to be exact. I saw this last year on the website but I was too late and it has sold out. So as you can imagine, how excited I was when this got restocked and became available again this year. This dress was going to be mine! It was going to be my – what I’m dabbing as ‘Christmas dress’. It’d be a dress I would wear on Christmas day and I’d be so festive and fabulous.

Lindy Bop dresses are a big favorite of my mine due to their swing dresses range which suit my rather small (but large if you get my meaning) apple figure. It hide the undesirable part while still give you that vintage glamour. This year I have gone rather Lindy Bop Mad!

Anyway I ordered the dress and here is me wearing the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress. Please excuse my awkward weird expression on my face, not sure what going on there.

The dress itself is as lovely in real life as it was on the website. When my husband saw this, he thought I looked a little too much like 1950s housewife. To be honest I agree with him. But that however didn’t stop me loving this. The skirt is full of swing and flare. I could quite happily go dancing in this. The bodice itself is a little tight and didn’t work well on my figure. Next time I wear this I might complement this with a belt. I also like how the skirt have a pocket. I’m a big fan of pocket skirt.

If you are lucky enough to catch the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress next year before its get sold out again – then you won’t be disappointed. There is off course, if you can’t wait – Ebay.

    I think it’s a cute print! I agree about the 50’s housewife comment, but I love that style of clothing and the whole pin-up era, so this is right up my alley. I look forward to checking out more items from this company. 🙂

    What a fun dress for the holidays! Ya it can come off a bit 1950’s homemaker, but it’s cute to heck so who cares! 🙂 I’m glad you were finally able to purchase one for yourself!

    I love the vintage/retro vibe of the fabric print! It’s so Christmas-y!

    It’s so nice to see you wearing something that you love. It definitely has a “Christmas” feel to it. I don’t know if that’s my Swiss background talking or if I just love the little chalets dancing around the bottom….It is very cute indeed!

    This dress is super cute. I say rock the 1950’s look! Add a ribbon to your hair and go all festive. I’m glad to see that you went after what you wanted!

    What a beautiful print on that skirt. It’s so charming and whimsical! Sure it’s 50s housewife, but that’s what I think is so fun about it!

    Love when that happens. Finding something I really love and they don’t have your size but ends up restocking. It’s definitely a great feeling. That dress looks cute. Especially for Christmas

    I’m happy you found your dress. I think you are spot on about the belt. Also a nice little peep toe platform pump might make it a little less 50’s housewife and a little more vintage contemporary flare.

    I -love- this dress!! I need to check out Lindy Bop. Sounds like it might be my style. The dress looks great on you! And I’m totally cool with the ’50s housewife thing. 😀
