The Ultimate Summer Dress

Hello you lovely lot. I hope this heatwave isn't dragging your energy down as it is mine. As much as I've loved spending my days off in the sun, I'm taking a break from the heat and sheltering inside today with gallons of icy water whilst I do lots of boring admin. It's 32 degrees outside and my pale complexion is feeling the strain - will we ever return to normality?

Saying that, most of my struggle is down to my apparent lack of summer clothing. I didn't realise quite how many jumpers and pairs of jeans I owned until I tried to find something appropriate for this heat! I was so lucky to recieve a gifting from Miss Selfridge that solved all my woes.

This beautiful white dress couldn't be any more perfect for summer. Its dainty detailing is so intricate that it feels like you're wearing something much more expensive, but I checked on their website and it's only £39! It's incredibly versatile and can be worn during the day or dressed up for an evening out. During the day I pair it with my & Other Stories basket bag and brown sandals (and of course, gold jewellery no matter what...

I got this dress in my usual size 6 and it fits really well. There's a slight gape around the neckline but that just comes with having small boobs, so I'd say it fits true to size (I'm 5"5 so you can see where it falls on me for reference). As long as it's this hot, you can catch me wearing this.
