Despite it being in the throws of winter here in Sydney and the fact the very thought of the approaching summer leaves me somewhat terrified (it got so crazy HOT last year), I’m finding myself dreaming of lovely inbetween that is spring. Spring in Australia, like Autumn is that happy medium. Its not too hot yet to be uncomfortable but not so cold I need to layer. Spring is the time I love to smash out floral and pastel outfits like a pro and I am so incredibly excited for the weather to warm up enough for me to wear the stunning floral button back dress in all its spring glory!
Love Ur Look Clothing is a brand I’ve featured before and is definitely a favorite brand of mine during the warmer weather. Love Ur Look is a UK based brand with a focus on interesting bust and back lines in their dresses as well as fun patterns. Another stand out point of Love Ur Look dresses that continually wins me over, is that their dresses are 100% cotton. Coming from a very hot and humid location during the later spring months through to mid autumn, these dresses are fabulous in this warmer weather as they allow your skin to breath and help to keep you cool while looking fabulous.
The Floral Button Back Dress, a recent release to their website is a perfect spring and summer piece (or if like me you like pretending its spring in winter, a great all year rounder!). This dress features a pretty bright pink floral print with green leaves. The strap design make this a great warmer weather dress and the bust detail features an almost zigzag design, which I really like as a subtle point of difference.
The Back detail of this dress is a very simple yet incredibly pretty design. It has a zip closure with a criss cross button detail for the top part of the bodice. This dress also features two different buttons per closure, so you have some le-way if your having a bloated day or the weather is particularly warm. I love this back closure and cannot wait to wear it more (its currently been covered with cardigans when I’ve worn it!) with this back detailing as a feature in spring.
Another winning point of the Love Ur Look Clothing dresses is they’re fully cotton lined. Another winning feature for ladies like myself who live in more humid climates! This also makes them comfortable to wear without a petticoat. This dress is also a very versatile piece. I can easily see myself dressing it up or down during spring, depending on what I’m wearing it to. Adding a nice pair of heels and some statement jewellery could easily elevate this dress to a smart casual party attire level or keep it simple with flats and a hat on those hot days. While I accessorised this dress with a block colour belt to accentuate my waist, it does also come with a matching fabric belt as well.
For size reference I’m wearing the size XL. While this was a good body fit for me, it is a little loose on my bust (ongoing pear problem I have). I did have to shorten the straps as they were initially too loose and I did pop a dart in the sides at the bust to help with the fit. Once these things were tweaked, this dress was a perfect fit! With strappy dresses this is often something I have to do, so it wasn’t too much of a hassle! Also, did I mention this dress features two small pockets on the front of the skirt!? Winning!
The Floral Button Back Dress retails for a steal at £39.00/$64AUD + postage! Which with the exchange rate is an incredibly reasonable price for a dress! Aussie gals I cannot stress enough how much I loved having Love Ur Look in my wardrobe last summer and they’ll definitely be a regular feature if this summer follows the same weather trends. This is a brand to keep in mind for looking cute AND staying cool!
I hope you have enjoyed this review darlings! I’ve got another gorgeous Love Ur Look dress coming to the blog very soon too, so keep your eyes peeled!
Til next time darlings!
