Crochet for Summer... Groundbreaking eh!? But who really cares if it's groundbreaking of not, it's a summer fabric technique that I've always been utterly obsessed with! It's nostalgic connotations and of course the rainbow of colours that it usually comes in, tick all of my boxes and I struggle not to add a crochet piece of two to my collection each time summer rolls around.
I feel we've been super lucky so far with how our spring/summer has gone, weather wise at least and long may it continue throughout the "warmer" months. The great weather has meant I've been able to rock this dress a number of times and I honestly don't plan on slowing down anytime soon.
Despite it being a relatively bold dress I'm finding it really easy and rather fun to style up in a number of different ways.
This particular crochet dress is quite the splurge piece, however I was completely honoured to have worked with Kate Spade, the designer of this dress, throughout spring (this post isn't part of that work) but rest assured I'll certainly be getting my wear out of the little beauty!
This particular dress is sadly no longer available but I've left a lil carousel below of crochet goodness that I thought you may like also. And I just have to mention Shop Fluffy one of the most incredible independent stores that specialises in all things rainbow and crochet, I'm patiently waiting for their crochet bucket hats to come back in stock so I can add to my crochet collection.
While I'm quite the seasoned crochet dress or top or even shorts wearer, a crochet bag has never come into my life before... Until now of course.
Double crochet and double lilac is just what I'm talking about to create a really fun and rather unique look don't you think? I also adore how the orange and green are somewhat clashing with one another, fighting for the limelight, yet in other respects totally working together, do you know what I mean!?
Anyhoo, paired with this seasons must have Grandal (grandad sandal) it's pretty much my fave summer look that has been on rotation A LOT lately with just the occasional styling update, shoe change or layering piece thrown in for good measure.
