I’ve been a huge fan of Lighthouse Clothing ever since last autumn when I discovered the brand. Their coat collection in particular is one of my favourites out there, and you can see the yellow autumnal coat I am still head over heels for in this post.
However, it turns out that Lighthouse don’t only make incredible coats, but also have a little range of dresses that are as equally good quality and I couldn’t wait to tell you about this little denim gem I have recently added to my summer wardrobe.
Here I am referring to the Lighthouse Annabelle Dress in Soft Denim – and believe me, it is so soft and comfortable! I am all for dressing for comfort in the hot summer months and this dress in particular has been perfect for the hot weather we’ve been having lately.
Keeping cool in summer depends a lot on the type of fabric that your clothes are made from, and this denim dress is made from 100% cotton, which is one of the best, most breathable fabrics that you can opt for in summer.
The dress has a square neck, which makes a nice change from the more common round necks that a lot of casual day dresses seem to have. As you can see, this has also got short sleeves and comes to just above the knees – and best of all (I have definitely left the best bit for last)… it’s got two front pockets! I can’t help but do a little celebratory dance every time I find a dress I love that’s also got pockets! Anyone else!? This is the perfect summer day dress, whether you’re heading out for a walk or hitting the shops. I decided to add a skinny brown waist belt here, however the dress also looks good worn without a belt.
Overall, the dress feels like such lovely quality and it’s also currently in the Lighthouse summer sale so I’d definitely recommend checking it out here.
I decided to team the dress with the Lighthouse Fran Jacket in Harbour Mist. As I’ve already mentioned, I’m a big fan of the Lighthouse coats collection, and this one is no exception! The quality feels so great! The jacket is made from a highly waterproof and breathable fabric, and it is also windproof, making it perfect for chilly summer evenings going through to the autumn.
The jacket comes to about my hips in terms of length and it’s also got lots of external and internal pockets, which makes me love this jacket even more!
In terms of size, I’ve got this in a size 10 and it fits true to size. In fact, I think it’s also just about roomy enough for me to wear it over a slightly thicker jumper when the weather starts to get colder. I just know I can get so much wear out of this.
The jacket also comes in a blue and a pink shade, which you can check out here.
