Happy Sunday lovely people! Today’s outfit post centers around a dress I found at H&M this summer. If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen first glimpses of it.
H&M is not always known for selling the best quality clothing but sometimes they manage to put out surprisingly beautiful designs such as this lace maxi dress. One of the reasons why I always come back to them. This dress is completely made of fine lace which makes it surprisingly heavy – it’s almost a bit too warm for summer so this will be a stunning addition to my fall wardrobe. I didn’t realize this when I bought it but the dress has a certain vintage flair. It reminds me of Downton Abbey. The best thing is that the fabric composition is high in cotton and the dress is actually machine-washable.
The necklace I’m wearing is from one of my recent brand crushes, Ca&Lou. They also make fabulous earrings but when I saw this silver and light blue necklace I knew it was made for me. The sterling silver chain features five different pendants with zirconia and one blue pearl. I think it goes particularly well with the deep v neck of the lace dress.

The great thing about long flowy dresses is …you guessed it, that they are so long and flowy! I really love how the wind played with the pleated skirt while we were doing the photo shoot. I have to admit though that as much as I love the design of this dress – it is probably made for tall people. I’m not wearing heels in this outfit so with my 178 cm (5.11″) the length comes to the floor and is perfect for a maxi dress. For anyone shorter this might pose a problem though.
Do you like to wear lace? Have you watched Downton Abbey?
