Time to strut our summer stuff in colourful sunshine-y dresses!  The sun has finally come out to play- so let’s get cracking! Recycling last year’s summer frocks is just as much fun as adding more to our wish list! I think my wish list is over flowing at the moment! (whether or not I add to cart is a different story). Knowing summer has arrived lifts our mood, puts a spring into our step and changes our mind-set completely making the buying of our summer wardrobe so exciting. Ok, I love white but this year I’m also looking forward to some colour, florals, frills and prints!

Summer fashion is comfortable, effortless and easy! A throw on dress is my ideal ensemble and let’s face it, has less material therefore more affordable. Dresses are also easy, they can be worn day or night and ‘dressed ’up or down depending on the occasion. For me there are the essential summer dresses if you are to be wardrobe wise!

The everyday dress! I call this the ‘grab-and-go’.  Whether slipped on over a swimsuit or to run around for errands, it’s an effortless must:


The day-to-night prize winner.  A gem of a dress that can be glammed up with accessories or toned down to simply smart. This is the kind of dress that can be worn during a shopping spree with the girls and at night for dinner and drinks.


The summer maxi! Are you vacay- ready? This kind of dress will problem solve your holiday style and keep you looking cool and sophisticated yet comfy again both day and night.


The chic basic is a dress that will keep you looking elegant for a day at the office. A time-to-tidy yourself up kind of dress!


The cocktail, party dress. Summer is a time for going out, partying and having endless fun!
