It was only a few days ago that I featured this Cos dress styled up for a night out. But today looked like it had the potential to be warm and I’m just so desperate to wear a dress or skirt that I decided to brave the early morning cold in anticipation of the rays that were due later on in the day. I wanted to see whether the dress might work OK with flats. Being a longer length it can be tricky to pull flats off but I was prepared to sacrifice style for warmth and comfort.
At this point our eldest was sitting in the car looking at me and waiting for me to take her to her maths GCSE exam. You know when you have a smile on your face but inside your heart is breaking – just like when they go for their injections as babies and you would much rather go through it than putting them through it? Well that’s how I felt. Not that I would have been that much use to her I hasten to add. Does anyone else find themselves cleaning the kitchen whilst waiting for the exams to finish? And don’t ever let me go into town – I just buy random things that I don’t need (although I do take them back!)
Anyway, here’s another dress that may feature in the same category as the Cos one in that it has a good length to it, a little bit of a sleeve and it’s nipped in at the waist – for those who like that style. You may have already come across it but if not, this black pom pom dress from & Other Stories (£55), which has been re-styled slightly from last year, is worth taking a look at. It comes up a little on the small size so it may be necessary to size up.
So, has anyone got any gems up their sleeves on the summer dress front? I’m always on the look out for a go anywhere dress for these lovely sunny days that we seem to be having!!
