For a baking hot day at the (paddling) pool, you can’t beat a printed silk dress. OK so the problem might be that I’ve had this Warehouse dress for so long now that I can’t actually find anything particularly similar – which some might think is a good thing – but having not worn it in a very long time, it was good to get it out again.
(Dress: Warehouse, Flip flops: Jack Wills, Basket: Boutique in Guernsey)
I think that’s the thing with full on “summer” clothes – I don’t buy that many of them, largely because it’s rarely warm enough to wear them and so I have them for quite a few years. But then when the chance arises, it’s like spending the day with an old friend. Unlike my winter clothes which I rotate so often it’s like spending the day with your arch enemy.
Wearing this dress has also made me realise how little print and colour I now wear, compared to a few years ago, but how much I like wearing them. So there’s a big note to self… Does anyone else have any “notes to self” when it comes to clothes (or anything for that matter)?
