Perfect Prettiness – Dress For Sunshine.
We’ve reviewed Sunuva clothing before – and we’ve never yet been disappointed. In fact, one of the girl’s favourite tops is still last summers Kaftan (with her sprouting so much leg it’s not really long enough for a dress now…). So when a new parcel arrived in the post there was a little excited flapping (and no, not just by the squeaky 6yr old, either).
And just look what was inside! The MOST perfectly gorgeous 100% cotton summer dress. It’s pretty enough to be carried off at a party, but cool and practical enough to be at home on the beach too.
Naturally, with the loose style it’ll stay cool on the hottest of days – I can imagine this is a dress that’ll barely be washed before it’s back on again when we head to the heat of France this summer.
The utterly brilliant blue (Look no pink! Huzzah!) paisley print is fresh and summery, and the detailing of the lace trim on the flutter sleeves (and on the hem too) step it out from the average sundress into something that feels properly special when it’s on.
With all that light material, naturally there’s a lot of ‘lift’ – I could barely keep the girl from constantly spinning, she adores the way it bells around her as she turns. It’s SUCH a pretty and comfy dress (never underestimate how important the Comfort Factor is when you’re 6) that’s seen pretty constant use since it moved in. It’s spent days in the garden playing French Cricket with older brothers, and on cooler days it has trekked the fields with the dog, worn just as happily over a pair of jeans.
Rather brilliantly for a such an ageless and classic style, the dress is available in ages 1-12yrs (I know – how sensible is that?), and prices start at £45. You can nab yourself a Girls Blue Paisley Flutter Dress straight from Sunuva (make sure you check out their stunning boys wear range too!).
