I absolutely love summer. I love the sunshine, I love the warm temperatures and I love how easy dressing becomes in the summer months. Nothing makes me happier than being able to grab a piece from my closet, throw it on and head out the door looking put-together and comfortable.
Enter the summer dress. I love grab-and-go summer dresses that make dressing yourself in the mornings easy. This fun black, floral print swing dress from Reitmans is no exception. The cut of the dress is one of my favourites; longer sleeves with a tighter bodice and a nice swing in the skirt that doesn't cling to your lower half. The colour, along with the floral pattern make it easy to wear on those who-knows-whats-going-on-with-the-weather days (in fact, I wore it on a rainy day with a leather jacket) as well as in the sunshine.
Reitmans has an incredible selection of summer dresses, and I had a great time trying on what they had to offer when I was there last. I really appreciate the more conservative cuts and hemlines, because let's face it - I'm no spring chicken anymore. In fact, I just did a massive closet purge and donated all of the booty-grazing, body-con mini dresses of my 20s. Having a go-to destination to help build my dress wardrobe back up has been so helpful.
