When I saw the beautiful Jasmine Dowling in this little black dress, I instantly fell in love. I’m not usually one for dresses – I’m more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl – but for some reason I really loved this one. Maybe it was the balloon sleeves, or the cut out detailing at the sides. Whatever it was, after much deliberation, I went out and bought it a month later (RIP bank account).

As I get older and more confident (I say this at the ripe age of 24. Yes, I’m a grandma at heart) I find myself shifting towards skirts and dresses with a longer hemline – a much more flattering shape on my figure. Last year, I started stocking up on a few wardrobe staples: a silk and crepe black midi skirt, and this linen dress.
