Styled by Helen: Nicely Eclectic

Being short in stature I usually try to avoid long dresses. I've just always felt that they'd drown me. That was until I saw this beauty. When I visited the lovely Pat from Nicely Eclectic to borrow an outfit for our Tropical Girl Gang shoot, I couldn't help but borrow this too - just to try on. The pattern and colours are just so fun! I was very pleasantly surprised when I slipped into it. For one, it wasn't too long. It's always a fear that I get tangled up in a long dress or trail the additional length in the mud. This ended just in the right place - lifting up of the ground when I put some heels on. Secondly, it features some nice vertical lines. Always good for elongating. And when you're just wee any kind of elongating is very welcome.

With a dress like this I felt I didn't really need to accessories. The pattern is really what it's all about so I let that do the talking. I just popped on some red heels and I still felt all dressed up. If only I had more occasions to get dressed up for! I definitely feel like this dress needs somewhere special to be taken. It's going to be hard to hand this piece back to Pat but it probably deserves a more glamorous owner than me. I still had a whole lot of fun prancing around in it.

Huge thanks to Pat from Nicely Eclectic for letting us play dress up.

    This. This is exactly why I decided to start blogging. It can be very isolating being home with babies, even if you get out and do stuff each day. It is so nice to read about another woman going through it too!
