- #OOTD ft. Yumi by Lilah Capsule Collection...

Denim Dress*: Yumi
Pointed flats: Zara

I've noticed over the past few years that denim has been making a comeback in bursts. Mom jeans, ripped jeans, dungarees, pinafore dresses, shirt dresses; you name it, the denim version has been bang on trend.

The thing is, when done right, denim is just so easy to wear. It suits all complexions, there's a style suited for all body types and it's a hugely versatile contender in any wardrobe.

That's why this Embroidered Collar Denim dress appealed to me. It's super handy for those days where you just want to throw something on, yet appear like you've put some thought and effort into it (ahem every day). The material is actually stretch-cotton, which adds comfort and allows movement - something I find can sometimes be lacking with collared and/or stiff denim clothing.

This piece is actually part of the SS16 Yumi by Lilah Parsons collection. I'll admit, I had no idea who she was, so I took to my good friend Google. It turns out she's a British presenter and model (my bad for not knowing this, I feel so behind with current faces *granny alert*), and she's recently dabbled into the fashion world with a 14 piece collection.

Consisting of crisp, white pieces with feminine shapes, and floaty ditsy prints, I'm certainly a sucker for her collection; inspired by 60s Parisian chic. As much as I love it all, this denim dress immediately screamed out to me with it's pop of red on the collar, hems and lining. I wore it out during the recent sunny spell, so styled it simply with some pointed nude flats to keep in with the feminine theme.

For £75, it's a little more expensive than your average day dress, but I can tell it's going to get a lot of wear and will last for years! Check out the rest of Lilah's range here.
