I love summer! It makes everyone happier and everything easier, especially dressing little ones! Although I have noticed I have literally no summer clothes, and I’m wondering is there any point buying things when we have no guarantee to how long this summer will last, thanks to the lovely British summers!! So I took to eBay hoping to get a few bargains, I ordered a couple of dresses from China, so goodness knows when they will come or whether they will look anything like they do in the picture.
This dress is from Jack Wills, I don’t usually go for the shorter dresses but I loved this one so much I thought why not?! It’s funny, since becoming a mum I am much less confidence in the things I wear. I don’t like getting my legs out, hence why they are so pastey, (why isn’t there a fake tan filter?) and I don’t tend to wear figure hugging things, do any other mums think that since having a baby? I must have changed 2 or 3 times before leaving the house, debating whether to wear this but I thought it’s so hot I can’t cope with anything heavier. Emma has on a gorgeous dress from Marksies, again it’s cheesecloth, so in love with that right now! And her little sandals are JoJo Maman bebe, they were in the sale and the last ones in her size so I grabbed them.
I have seen a lot a women wearing lovely linen dresses for summer and I’m desperate to get my hands on one, but just haven’t found the right one yet at the right price. I saw such a glamourous older lady wearing a long linen dress in town the other day and I wish I had asked her where it was from, but she was on the other side on the street, and in this weather there is no way I’m walking faster than a snails pace, definitely regretting it now!
These culottes are also from Jack Wills and they are super comfy, and such a lovely light material for summer, but they are such a pain to iron and I really hate ironing at the best of times. The top is my sisters from River Island. My sister bought me the headband from Barcelona and I love it so much, the colours are perfect and go with so many things, I wasn’t sure how to wear it at first but I think once you have a play around with it you get used to wearing it in different ways, it looks great with you hair up too.
I will keep you posted on the hunt for a linen dress and more summer outfits I find, I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far.
