Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Today’s post is on styling a cotton midi dress. I am a huge fan of the brand Ganni and when I saw this dress I couldn’t resist it. Although at first I was a little torn between this one and the striped white and green one. I always find that Ganni does some wonderful pieces that are unique in their own way. I already own a few of their pieces and absolutely adore their Peter Pan collar garments. So here is one way to style this midi dress. Do let me know what you think, also I have included a few of my favourite midi dresses that are currently available.




So like I mentioned earlier my midi dress is from Ganni. A truly versatile dress that I can see my self wearing season after season and one that will withstand the test of time. It is made from a breathable blend of organic cotton canvas linen. What I adore about this dress is the smocked bodice, the voluminous cuffed sleeves and the stand collar. When it came to styling it I opted to style it with a pair of caramel sandals. But I could have easily paired the dress with a pair of trainers/sneakers or even a pair of boots. Bag wise I opted for this gorgeous basket tote which is perfect for summer. Completing my look with my white aviator sunglasses.






When it comes to summer outfits a basket bag is a must in my opinion. So here are few of the current ones that I am loving.



How would go about styling this midi dress? Is it something you would wear during the summer months? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.

    What a beautiful dress. Not sure how you manage to look so crisp and cool in the sun!! But you sure do. The smocking accents show off your darling shape. Love the long length and the sleeve interest. The strappy sandals and great bag are the perfect accessories. I really want to try to wear more skirts and dresses this summer. It was 100* F today. So we are off to another hot season!!

    That dress is such a stunning statement piece, Lovely! It looks amazing on you. Not a colour I could wear without it washing me out, but it suits your colouring amazingly! xxx

    Guess I am the outlier here, but I’m not a fan of this dress.
    I don’t think the silhouette is flattering. It might have worked in a gauzy cotton but not something this heavy and crisp.
    If it were mine, I’d cut off the high neckline and make it an off-the shoulder smock dress. The fitted bodice would contrast and set off the puff sleeves. It would also be more comfortable & cooler.
    Even though I don’t like the dress, your styling is spot-on as always.

    The smocked bodice is so on trend, Lovely! I’ve been buying a lot of smocked pieces lately. Your heels are so fabulous too! Loved how you style this timeless look!

    What a totally gorgeous dress! I think the basket tote and the aviator glasses were the perfect accessories!!!

    That is such a beautiful dress! I love the neutral tan shade. It’s even better that it’s made out of cotton so it will keep you cool for summer!
