Summer Blues


I am no doubt still in holiday mode and have holiday blues today. This wasn't helped by the call I received at work today to tell me that Scarlett had chicken pox! Talk about a massive dive back into reality. In my sombre mood, I have decided to think about the sunshine and think happy thoughts! So, I thought I would share with you one of my other summer favourite dresses. This is a Little Mistress dress from http://www.scarlettfashion.co.uk/clothing-1/dresses/-Little-Mistress-Cream-Navy-Lace-Overlay-Peekaboo-Dress it is called "peekaboo" as it has a cheeky backless part of the dress which adds that little air of naughtiness without having to "get it all out". It rests just above the knee, which for me is important as I am not found of my chunky legs and generally try to avoid anything unless it rests safely on my knee
or is worn with a heavy pair of black tights. In this weather, not a option! The top of the dress is made up of a cream lace over lay and the skirt of the dress is navy chiffon with a net underskirt to add a subtle 50s flair. It's fitted, so pulls you in at the waist. Great for summer, but I think a good all year round dress as it is perfect for weddings and christenings. Infact, one of my friends has just bought this to wear for her daughter's christening in September.

This maxi dress is an old wardrobe classic. It is from Topshop. I bought it about 3 years ago. It is uber long and reminds me of a Greek goddess. It just makes me feel so feminine and girly. I don't have to worry about pulling my skirt down when I walk or showing anything off, it covers all my bad bits and I think it is a classic. I teamed it up with my statement necklace of the month, also from Topshop. I lived in this dress when I was pregnant. It generally only makes an appearance once a year, but despite the rip at the bottom of the dress from where I fell due to the ridiculous length I refuse to throw it out:-)
