My closet is in full summer-mode, and this year I’ve noticed that I’m turning to light, mid-length dresses with pretty details.
They are the perfect pieces to take you from day to night. Pair with sandals and one of this season’s crop of woven or bamboo bags, and you’re ready for everything from hitting your favourite brunch spot to meandering along and window shopping. Accessorised with a pair of statement earrings (some of favourites are these ones, these ones and these ones) and heels and it’s the perfect summer soirée or balmy evening look.
I have to admit that I bought this dress as an emergency solution to a small problem. The shorts I was wearing caught on a pole and ripped, and so, with the pinkest cheeks you’ve ever seen, I side-stepped into the closest shop to find something else to wear.
This dress drew my eye because of the gorgeous festive colour, and the fact that it is cotton and just so comfortable has seen it go from quick-pick emergency selection to current favourite in my wardrobe.
