Having at least one summer long dress is a must. You don’t need to pass hot days only in short dresses. I personally love wearing them. There is something relaxing about them, don’t you think? Plus long dress will always give you some extra chic vibe. Whatever the style or cut, they make you look a bit more elegant then their short version. So when I received this Rachel Pally dress, I instantly feel in love with it. The fabric is quite heavy (jersey knit), which makes it really stay in the right place at all times. I was slightly concerned that the hem is just and not finished. But then i realised that this fabric doesn’t really need it. The waist area has an elastic band, so it holds really well. I am not a huge fan of those, but it is nothing that a nice belt can’t solve.

There are halter strap lines around the neck, which ties in at the back of the dress. I must confess, this is a bit of an struggle to do it myself and I had to practice. As I like to have the straps quite tight, I have to undo it every time I want to put the dress on. Nevertheless, this Rachel Pally dress is now one of my favourites for summer. She is know for her ability to combine easy and effortless with classic and chic. Her clients include Angelina Jolie or Jessica Alba and now me as well. How cool is that 🙂
How I wore it
I teamed the Rachel Pally dress with a personalised both the Rae Feathers basket and Bits And Pieces To Go hat. Both of these items are currently my summer essentials. The dress is very long, so I needed good high heels. I chose Raye sandals. I ordered these online. It was my first purchase of shoes online as I am always scared that the shoes will not fit and will have to send them back. However I was pleasantly surprised. Not only they fit perfectly, but they are also very comfortable to wear despite their 10 cm heel.
