Puff the magic....

... SLEEVES!  On a dress.  They really are the sleeves of the season.  They bring me joy.  Pure joy.  And they're not a new thing.  I have loved these since I was a very very young girl.  In fact, I remember buying a bottle green fitted shirt with huge puff sleeves from Zeewolde (my aunt and uncle lived in Holland!) when I was 15. 

It's the theatrical drama I love about them.  They just are the perfect finishing touch to a dress for me.  And they are now VERY much all the thing and there is something for everyone.  For every shape and for every price bracket.

Absolutely loving New Look at the minute for their use of real people as models.  I think this dress looks SO much better on the lovely Hannah Gale on their website than it does the (also gorgeous obvs) model.

Maxi magic from Mint Velvet. Super useful for just throwing on.  Throw a chunky knit over it for cooler days and then into the Autumn.

VERY Ganni inspired, again at Urban Outfitters.

Voluminous Open Back Midi Dress from & Other Stories £135

If you're not a fan of the prairie style dresses above, there is a perfect hybrid of a classic shirt dress with a modern twist on the puffed sleeves.  Perfect for Zoom work calls during the day or for Zoom evening calls with friends.  

Pink Spot Puff Sleeve Midi Shirt Dress from New Look £25.99

And for those of you who love to get their legs out - these are great AND even better, it comes in three different lengths.  Although I have to say my advice would be, unless you like them really short, I would go for the length longer than you actually need.  Only people who won't be able to do that, are the tall ones amongst us.

White Check Puff Sleeve Mini Dress from New Look £22.99

Tall White Check Puff Sleeve Dress from New Look £22.99

And in the petite... £22.99

A shorter plain black one - I think this looks a LOT more expensive than the price tag.  

Cotton Blend Voluminous Midi Dress £75 from & Other Stories

Classic style in beige at & Other Stories £69

And the one that I have on today... 

ASOS Design Shirred Tiered Maxi Dress in Mono Spot £39

And here I am in a couple of mine.  Simply perfect for this time of year.  It looks like it's going to be a loooooong summer.

And on my puff sleeve research trail, I found (randomly) an Isabel Marant top which I am OBSESSED WITH... it was also over £900 (OUCH) and so I have now gone down a broderie anglaise research rabbit hole.  Not to mention some chunky sandals which I can walk for miles in... oh and SUMMER dresses and then there are perhaps some shorter ones.  

Research for days.  Nothing to do with my procrastinating at not having cleared the spare room like I promised I was going to do at the beginning of lockdown... NOTHING at all...!!
