Who doesn’t love summer inspired clothes! Especially festival inspired clothing. Anything festival related totally brings me back to attending SVMF last year. Hands down one of the best music festival experiences in my life.
I got the chance to pick out something from Bench Canada’s new Festival Lineup collection. And of course I had to grab another maxi dress! I loved the fit and quality of the ‘Acting Out’ dress that I got from Bench in May, and so I thought it would be a pretty safe bet that I would love their ‘Santa Catalina’ dress as well… And I DO!
The dress comes with a nice black tie belt which gives you the option to cinch in your waist and make the dress a little more fitted. However, it’s also super cute without the tie as just a simple long black maxi. Like the ‘Acting Out’ dress, this one also has slits on both sides which I LOVE because it means I can adjust the length and shape of the dress by tying a knot on one of the sides (as I did here). Although it seems like just a plain maxi dress there are actually so many ways that you can wear it to make it your own. Versatile pieces are the best pieces!
Love the braided detailing in the straps. The braided straps actually separate into three braided strands in the back before connecting back to the dress (as shown here). UGH LOVE. Sometimes the simplest details does SO much for me.
Gotta love Bench for introducing me to yet another summer favourite. They’re also having a huge summer sale right now and their entire inventory is on sale for 30% off. So if you were eyeing down any pieces this is definitely the time to check it out. My favourite items from them are their simple T-shirt dresses (this one and this one) and of course their maxi dresses which I’ve mentioned in this post. I’d say Bench is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for some staple good quality basics for your summer wardrobe.
