summertime… and the dressing is easy…


Easy summer dresses… possibly three of my favourite words!

Because it means once you pull one on, you’re done with getting dressed. It means the sun is shining. Or you might be going to the beach. Or better still… packing them into your suitcase ready to fly off on holiday.

And I know that whole beach to bar thing is an oft-used phrase by bloggers. fashion press and brands alike but when you find a couple of dresses that really work for the majority of summer scenarios, you feel like your style sterling has been wisely invested.

I knew that this linen stripe dress kindly gifted to me by The White Company, was going to be a quick summer seller the minute I saw it. One thing I’ve learned with some of my favourite brands is that once you see something you love, don’t hesitate! At the point of writing, there are low stock levels in most sizes, but if that doesn’t include yours, it’s worth keeping an eye out in case they re-stock at some point.

Some of my must-include features for easy summer dresses?

Round about knee length or longer – maybe a pocket or two – a semi-loose fit – short sleeves please – and wait for it… maybe a bit of colour here and there! I’m slowly beginning to realise that my attitude to dressing lightens up a little in the summer and Mrs Monochrome doesn’t rule the roost entirely!

And speaking of lighter, fun elements, can we just take a moment to appreciate the pom poms and tassel trim on that White Company beach basket too?? Show me a basket with pom poms on and I’ll show you a big cheesy grin. And a willingness to paddle in the very cold sea just to get the shot…
