5 dresses you'll live in this summer

If ever there's a fail-safe wardrobe winner, the summer dress is it. I've found myself buying more and more dresses lately as they're just so easy. Slip on a pair of flat sandals, your favourite sunnies, a denim jacket and you're good to go.


Smock dress, £45, And Other Stories
I have this is in cream and so excited to bring it out - it's double-lined so not see-through and: it has pockets. There are only a few sizes left, though so hurry...
Or you could get this, instead. 
Cotton dress, £65, And Other Stories

Equally as chic (and a bit like my Isabel Marant one from Vestiaire, regular readers might remember - I just squeaked with joy at the memory of it somewhere with my summer clothes at my parent's house). It too, has pockets.

Dress, £25, Next
Look, I'm not sponsored by Next or anything, I just really like a lot of things there at the moment. I'm (almost) tempted by a pair of denim dungarees in there, too...
But anyway, this dress is amazing. A flirty drop waist, teamed with a loose fit which makes you look slimmer than you are, plus a bit of a Gucci Cruise print going on: I love it. For those that just don't 'do' yellow: it comes in black, too.

Dress, £39.99, Mango
Okay so WITBlog found it first...but I bought this last week and, if you're planning on going away this summer, you should probably buy it, too. Just add a straw trilby and Birkenstocks.

Navy dress, £85, Whistles
If you're not a fan of shoulders and bare decolletage...then I apologise now. But spaghetti straps and off shoulder tops/dresses are a thing. Not only is this probably the only dress you'll ever find in Whistles for under £100, it's also the coolest. This shot is styled to perfection: take note.

Jersey dress, £59, Cos
Ever the minimalist, I love this dress for so many reasons: it will go with everything, it will hide a multitude of sins and it's not actually denim - it's jersey. The ultimate city-break dress - it won't crease and will look great with trainers.


  1. Love your selection and very tempted by the Mango one!

    1. Do it! It is fabulous - and Halle Berry wore it on a chat show - which means it's not just for the beach!

  2. I love the Other Stories dress, I got the top version in both Ivory and black. Great selection x

    1. I loved the top as well - and if they made skirts from the same fabric and with the same pattern, I'd probably want them too!

  3. I have the first Other Stories one in black and it's lovely. I was very tempted to go and get the cream one as well to keep it company. And susceptible as ever, I very nearly bought the Mango one after seeing it on your Instagram feed ... I might still get it yet.

    1. I'm not really going anywhere I can wear the Mango one until September - but best to get it early!

  4. I love No 5 but where is it from?

    1. Sorry - it's from cos - I need my own sub editor!

  5. I love the first one from &other stories but was a little slow off the mark as it has sold out in my size, but am loving the Mango dress you have bought it would be so perfect for holiday and if it's good enough for Halle ;) x

  6. Love all your dress suggestions, and I've just bought the Next (but in navy) wore it for the first time today and have had 3 compliments already! I salute you and your fantastic style and blog! xx
