Mum on the Run – A Reiss printed summer dress – heels or converse? I think either will do.

Those days when you can wear just three pieces of clothing are the ones that I dream of all year – bra, pants, dress – job done. No need for layers, scarves, coats, jumpers, or vests – bliss. Yes, today I am vest free. It’s almost as historic a moment as a British man winning Wimbledon.


I don’t think that any of the dresses that I am planning on wearing this week are new, so forgive me if you have seen them before. I think that this Reiss dress is now into its second or third summer but I like a bit of longevity when it comes to clothes, which I bond with in the same way as some men bond with their cars. Speaking of men, Mr SG did the deed today and went to buy the bikinis. I haven’t tried them yet – that’s for another day.

This dress is an easy style to wear, especially now that I have my fashion tape!  A print is a great way of confusing the eye and keeping it on the move so as to stop it focusing in on anyone area. Here I wore it with my nude mango sandals but I will shortly be putting it with pale blue converse whilst I walk to collect our son from his leaver’s disco at school. How bad would it be of me to sneak in a bit early to see if I can catch any of the action??!!! Yep, bad, I know. Right, I’m off.

    Wow what a gorgeous dress, would never have put it down as Reiss though, it's not their typical style. X

    Isn't it great to just get up, and get dressed so quickly with so few pieces to put on… means 10mins extra in bed! Gorgeous summer dress too!xx

    Why do you always put "mum on the run" it's extremely irritating!
