It is finally spring, my favourite season. Sydney is going through a rainy spell at the moment but the flowers are coming to full bloom and it’s the season for sundresses! When I am looking for that perfect spring/summer dress, a dress with pockets is always a bonus. It is practical and always weirdly comforting having one or both hands in your pocket.
The dress that I am wearing is from Zara. I love the simple bow detail at the front and the skinny black and white stripes giving it a clean nautical vibe. The cut of the dress is so comfortable yet flattering at the same time. I love that the pockets are pretty deep and actually functional. I could even slide my phone or train card in whenever I want to for easy access. Zara is really nailing their spring collection right now. Check out their online store to browse through their latest collection here.
As a tribute to pocket dresses, I thought I might share some items that are on my wishlist and some that I already own. There are some pretty amazing pieces from my favourite brands such as Zimmermann, Free People and Self Portrait. Revolve also has a huge variety of affordable sundresses that are perfect for vacation or for days when you just want to be comfortable and look chic. One of my favourite sundresses is the Iris Floral Print Linen Dress from the Zimmermann 2017 swim and resort collection.
Matchesfashion is an amazing online store that offers 10 % off at checkout with the code MFNEW for any first time customers. Plus, if you know someone (like me) who buys from Matches fashion , you can get 15 % off from a referral discount code via email. Sharing is caring; especially when it comes to discount codes!
I wore this Zara Dress all day on a weekend out and I find that this piece transitions quite well into night time as well. For size reference (I am approximately 5 feet 2), I wear size XS. You can definitely dress it up with a faux leather jacket like this one from Blank NYC for a semi-formal look or just for some added warmth during chilly nights . I find this jacket true to size so I purchased in my usual size XS. The length of the sleeves were just perfect with no alteration required.
Jacket : Blank nyc faux leather jacket (XS)
Bag : Chanel Classic Flap
