OOTD // Pink Clove Skater Dress

I cannot resist a skater dress. There's something about the loose fit and flowing fabric that I just find so comfortable, and they look cute too. I also happen to love a wrap dress, so throw the two together and you pretty much have the perfect dress recipe for me. This particular plus size dress is from Pink Clove and I'm absolutely in love with it!
Pink Clove Harleen Wrap Dress
Dress: Pink Clove
Shoes: Primark (similar here)
Called Harleen, the dress is made of a light crepe fabric. I was a bit worried it would be warm, especially with the long sleeves, but I wore it during one of those horrible hot days we had last week and even with the sleeves, I felt comfortable. The other good thing about this fabric is that its very stretchy, so although the arms look slim fit, they have a lot of give.
Plus Size Wrap Skater Dress
As much as I love wrap dresses, I always have a problem with them sliding down my boobs and exposing way more than I wanted. It's just another hazard of my chest, I think. This is no exception, but a tiny safety pin keeps it secure and, because of the material, there's no evidence of pin pricks afterwards, unlike my poor jersey wrap dresses!
Pink Wrap Dress Plus Size Long Sleeves
The D ring fitting is a cute detail and it's much more secure than I anticipated when I first put it on. There's no additional fastening so it's vital the belt is held safely in place. I was out for a good couple of hours and it didn't budge, so I'm very impressed. As an aside, I'd imagine this simple fastening would make it a perfect dress for breastfeeding. I don't really know what makes a good breastfeeding dress, but I'd imagine the ease of subtly releasing only one half of your chest is up there as a priority, and this would be ideal.

I just know this dress is going to be a faithful companion right through the summer, and probably into the autumn too with a pair of warm tights. A new staple! 
Pink Clove sent dress for review but all opinions my own
