Feminine Summer Style With JD Williams

Hey Cats,

Although summer is just around the corner Spring is still very much in swing. The sun has been shining and we have been blessed with some beautiful days. For me Spring and Summer is all about flowers I have seen so many beautiful bluebells, daisies and you will have seen them on Instagram. When JD Williams got in contact and asked me to put together a Summer outfit I wanted a floral boho vibe and there was plenty to choose from. I picked out this lovely summer dress from JD williams.

Dress - Simply Be  at  Jd williams
Shoes - Sole diva from Jd williams
 Flower crown- primark
Necklace- Black heart creatives 

In this outfit I am breaking all the rules put upon plus size ladies I have my legs out,my arms free and I am wearing the hanky hem shunned by so many. You know what? It works and I felt so pretty. Do not be afraid to bare skin this summer get a tan, don't hide away! This is a floral dress with a difference, I loved the splashes of colour with the yellow reminding me of sunshine days complimented by the pinks and blue/lilac flowers sprinkled around the dress. I have never been much of a fan of wearing white but the colours make the dress more wearable and interesting. 


Fully lined the dress is of beautiful quality but still feels really light and airy. It would be perfect to wear to a Spring/summer wedding or even for a stroll along a hot beach on holidays. The underskirt means you can feel secure when the breeze floats the light fabric of the longer hem and gives you a very feminine appeal. I opted for a 22 and it was very true to size. 



The subtle v neck isn't too low like some dresses can be. I think this is an ageless picot suitable for young and more mature ladies looking for some floral sunshine in their wardrobe. A lot of people shy away from the hanky hem thinking it has been over used and enforced on the plus size community. I personally think it works on this dress with a dipped hanky ham on the sides it really gives the dress a more boho free spirited appeal. Even those who shy away from getting their glorious beautiful legs out can feel comfortable as you feel like you're not totally on display.


No summer outfit is complete without shoes and Jd Williams has a wide range of sandals. I teamed this outfit with some chunky tan sandals from Sole Diva. They are a wider fit so extra comfortable and the chunkier heel makes them easier to walk in. I really like the cork style effect on the platform and heel of the shoe and think they are really versatile for a Spring and summer wardrobe. As I said I wanted a boho feel and accessories really bring that looks together summer is a great time to rock flower crowns and fun jewellery.

What will you be rocking this summer?
