One thing that growing up in the Middle East has given me is an insatiable love of pretty spring dresses.
Thanks to its fleeting nature, Dubai’s springtime is most precious to its residents. Here in the desert, the bridge between winter and summer is next to non-existent; Dubai has been raining solid for the last two weeks (which I’ve enjoyed immensely) and now the sun is beating down, harder than ever, letting us all know that the colder months are well and truly behind us until November.
For me, the promise of spring manifests itself most compellingly in a freshly laundered dress. It’s time to ditch the leather jackets and the turtlenecks and break out the floral frocks, shorter hem lines and lashings of lace in bold hues. Brands are forging ahead armed with spring dresses galore, ready to take on the new season, and I’m right behind them, sporting this citrus style number.
