Dreaming of Summer

Summer, a word that I am now feeling so distant with in London. But something, only two weeks ago, I felt like in the middle of: wearing a silky, romantic dress and a summery scent, walking in the middle of a blooming, wild garden.

The dress I was wearing was from the vintage store Chalou that I’d mentioned before, which I stumbled upon while in Nice, and ended up spending a good amount of time & money in. This very dress was what attracted my attention in the first place, as it hung quietly yet beautifully in the window display. It was elegant, young, flowy, and it looked a million dollars pounds. 

When I tried it on, it was the lightest silk, so gentle on the skin that I could barely feel any weight or friction. Most importantly, like fate, it was the perfect fit for me! So a million pounds or not(NOT), I brought it back with me to London.
Every girl needs a dress like this in summer, it is what makes a girl feel like a young princess for a day.
Some similar dresses that I would equally love to have(in the order of how similar I think the dress is to the one I had on):

And when a dress is as dreamy and beautiful as this, everything else can be kept simple and classy(which doesn’t mean you’ll lose your personality).

And last but certainly not least, a perfect summer fragrance like
Le Jardin de Monsieur Li to top your game. 

It’s been the new and only scent I’ve been using for this summer, and it’s fresh, moist, joyful, feminine without being overwhelmingly sexy or sweet. The endnote of this fragrance has to be my favourite. After a long day of wearing, the smell becomes gentler but sweeter. It brings my imagination to a cosy and warm room(it could be a girly powder room, or a baby’s nursery), and it feels like the perfect scent to fall asleep with.
