It seems only right that – as we’re nearing the end of June – this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike theme is summer dresses. Despite the UK’s hit-and-miss summer so far I was determined to wear my favourite yellow sun dress with gold and orange at the weekend.
This dress was first seen on the blog two years ago (another one of my Grace Kelly-style outings) and to be honest there haven’t been many opportunities to wear it since. The coral cashmere sweater was either around my shoulders preppy-style or worn properly over the dress depending on whether the sun was in or out. The joys of a British summer…!
YELLOW DRESSES ARE MY NUMBER ONE WEAKNESS WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING SUMMER CLOTHES
Yellow dresses are my number one weakness when it comes to buying summer clothes: I already have about four of them and it’s always the colour I automatically reach for when browsing the summer sales. The yellow Twitchill dress I wore for the Hobbs photo shoot last month is a firm favourite – I’m still debating whether it’s just too similar to warrant buying.
(This is where you tell me in the comments to stop being ridiculous and NOT buy it… please?!)
SHOP YELLOW DRESSES:
I think perhaps my obsession is getting out of hand – I always blame Sandy in Grease with her lemon yellow fit and flare dress (my six-year-old self was more obsessed with ‘sweet Sandy’ rather than ‘sexy Sandy’). My mum made me a dupe when I was about 18 and I’d give anything to have it back…!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
This is for linking up what you’ve been wearing (or would like to wear) only. I like to keep it all looking tidy because I’m a bit of a neat-freak, so non-outfit links will be removed – it’s only fair to others linking up!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 4 JULY IS RED, WHITE & BLUE
