When it came to packing for a city break in the height of the summer I really had no idea where to start. After checking the weather obsessively for a good two weeks just to be faced with the possibility of a heat wave and a rain storm it left me even more confused! Luckily I discovered a summer dress I can’t stop wearing right before I was due to leave.
I’ve really been embracing my summer style this year which is usually something I overlook. I’m all about the cosy knits, skinny jeans and boots combo so the fact I’m even wearing a dress let alone dedicating a whole post to one is slightly shocking to me! After seeing so many of these beautifully patterned, off the shoulder midi-dresses around I knew it was a style I could get on board with. To my surprise it really was love at first sight.
The length and material meant that I could feel super comfortable discovering the sights whilst the brightly coloured floral design made it perfect for any occasion. I love how the effortless styling makes this a win win for any girl who is equally as confused as me when it comes to dressing for the temperamental summer! As soon as it sun hid behind the clouds out came a thin grey jumper which was perfect for layering over the top and tied it a front knot. I know this will transition well into the early autumn too!
This style of dress really is perfect for anyone and it works so well for any kind of summer event, city break or sunshine escape. It’s casual enough to pair with some converse, a shopper and a denim jacket for a day of shopping or some summery sandals for a Sunday brunch, it really is the perfect summer dress I can’t stop wearing!
