In this heat, the only thing I want to wear is a cotton sundress. No jewellery, no heels, no belt – nothing that could cause a potential breakdown on a packed commuter bus that has the heating on full blast (WHY).
So, simple sundress it is. Luckily I have an abundance of those in my wardrobe, so the only tricky bit is choosing a favourite…
Actually, that bit was pretty simple too. I bought this dress in the Gap sale a few days ago – £24.99 down from £40. It’s a beautiful printed cotton – heavy enough that you don’t need a petticoat to cover your modesty (aka your stripy pants) but still light and airy for these strangely sunny days. I love the bright striped print and cute string belt – it’s a real throw-on-and-go piece, no accessories needed. So picking it out this morning was a no-brainer.
It’s quickly become my Favourite Summer Dress (no mean feat when you own at least eleventy billion) and I’ll wear it as long as this heatwave continues – so another week, then. Although I booked my honeymoon this week and always find paying for a foreign holiday guarantees fantastic weather in the UK. YOU’RE WELCOME.
