What I love about my summer wardrobe is that the English summer is so brief, all my dresses and summer clothes get so little wear that when I open up my summer clothes storage it feels like I have a whole new wardrobe. I have a ton of summer dresses but each has only been worn a handful of times so I'm still completely in love with all of them. This blue stripe dress is years old but such a favourite: No revelation (where I'm concerned) that it's a fit-and-flare midi. It is of course no longer available to buy, but this one is a really good match - and so's this one - if you wanted something similar.
I've always worn it with a tank underneath as the neckline is far too low (the dress was last seen on the blog with a coral tank back in 2012) but I like that layering adds some interest to it. Layering means it's possible to create lots of different outfits with one dress - usually a hard task with such a "complete" item of clothing. This time was a lot more neutral than last time: I went for black accents (belt and heels) and even got a bit daring with a navy bag... The black and navy police will be after me if I'm not careful.
Is your weather more unpredictable like the UK (meaning summer outfits rarely get an outing), or do you get the chance to wear summer dresses to death? Lucky you if you do... Do share in the comments!

P.S. If you've subscribed to my YouTube channel and are patiently waiting for my first vlog, it's on its way, I promise! There have been several technical difficulties I'd not anticipated that I'm trying to get my head round (I've watched so many videos to swot up on what I'm doing wrong). Thanks for your patience, it's coming soon :)
