  1. Frock on Friday: Milk & Thistle Kyoto Dress

    Milk & Thistle Kyoto Dress Cobalt in Blue Linen, $285.

    Sydney birds, it’s time to break out your summer frocks this weekend, and I can’t think of a better option than local label Milk & Thistle’s Kyoto dress. I’m a bit obsessed with kimono sleeves right now, and Milk & Thistle has nailed the Perfect Sydney Summer Dress for Grown Ups with this linen beauty in a striking cobalt blue.

    With breezy kimono sleeves and a flattering V-neckline, it’s a fabulously versatile dress that can be worn loose like a kaftan or cinched in at the waist. Play around with the long obi-style linen belt to create an elegant silhouette. The soft linen fabric will keep you cool on humid summer days, while the lightly creased look is beautifully on-point.

    I popped in to Milk & Thistle’s Newtown boutique on Wednesday, and it’s not surprising that it’s selling hot and fast, with orders flying in online and in-store. The Kyoto dress is also available in other fabrics, including the Collector print by Edith Rewa (see bottom).
