Through the Gardens

Alannah Hill Through the Gardens Dress

While keeping cool is virtually impossible at the moment (it's literally going to be 112 degrees today), wearing clothing that feels light and airy is essential to get through the day.  I'm featuring not one, but two dresses from Alannah Hill, an Australian ethical small business.  I'm so excited to talk about the sweet and sophisticated (and cool!) designs they offer and how they worked for me.  Keep reading below to get all the details!

The first dress I'm going to talk about is the Through the Garden dress.  It's a true wrap dress style that features a lined bodice and skirt, hook and eye detail at the bust for modesty, short sleeves, and a ruffled hem.  While it's not meant to be a super fitted style, you can cinch the waist to your comfort.  I personally like the more relaxed look of this dress, it's truly a "throw on and go" kind of piece.  The floral print is absolutely divine and perfect for the season.  If pastel isn't your thing, it's also available in a wine color way.  I'm usually between a UK8 and UK10 (depending on style and fabric) and I comfortably took the UK8 in this dress.  I can't wait to wear it again!

The other piece I'm featuring is the Night Bloom dress.  It's fully lined and features a flutter sleeve, self tie keyhole neckline, fitted bodice and asymmetrical a-line skirt, and a long back zippered closure.  This dress is so lush, I love the delicate yet structured style of this dress.  It combines some of my favorite vintage details with modern ones and I absolutely love it!  I went with a UK10 in this dress and it definitely was the right decision.  While the dress technically has stretch, the overlay does not.  If you're between sizes I'd order the larger one.  I feel like this would be such a great outfit for a summer date night...  Here's to hoping I get one of those (child-free) moments soon!

  1. I love your dresses - your temperatures are even higher than ours in Southern England. It has been in the 80s for several weeks now!
