Nights In Black Chiffon

26 Aug

The weather may have already turned Autumnal in the UK, but thankfully, I was blessed with a few days of sun in Spain recently. And after a rather hot day at the beach, my skin felt a little tender and I wanted something light weight to feel comfortable in that evening. Enter: this size 16 chiffon overlay dress from Julia at Tesco.

The dress is really gorgeous and light. It has a shorter lining with a lush longer chiffon skirt.

The length of the under skirt means that shapewear or anti chafing shorts are a no no – thankfully, I picked up some Body Glide in a local running shop to prevent chafing, and the floaty skirt helps hide my insecurities about my tummy.

The sleeves are very generous and extremely flattering on my larger arms.

The dress comes with a sash which helps cinch me in at the waist – but I think adding a gold belt would look adorable with it.

The dress fits like a glove over the bust, but it is a tiny bit low and my bra played peekaboo for a lot of the evening. I think a stitch or a cami top might be just the thing to add next time.

The hair band and sandals in the post are from Primark. Shout out to the sun for the sun glasses marks!
