that summer essential - the white dress!

Nothing screams Summer more than a white dress. The perfect accessory is a bit of a tan. I have 5 at the last count....I can't get enough of them! They are not just for holidays either.....I wore mine for date night last Friday.

I had my usual peruse of Pinterest for a bit of inspiration.


I find Gap usually have a great selection...2/5 of mine are from there. Just click on the pics for the details.

Here are a few other High Street finds. There are so many lovely ones to choose from....can I justify another?

I've actually been wearing another white dress today......albeit with a mad pattern! This Monki dress is current season but it sold out straight away. This oversize shirt style is perfect for the hot and sticky conditions we are enduring at the moment.

Outfits from the past few days have mainly consisted of dresses....

A quick diversion before we go on to my purchase of the week. How amazing is this illustration? Done by the very talented Sarah Maddox, you can see her work here and visit her Etsy shop here. I love it....such a good likeness don't you think?

If you read my last post.....it was all about skirts! When I popped into my local Sainsbury's it was love at first sight for this Tu Clothing one. It's sold out online but my local had plenty of sizes. And I take back what I said about finding skirts difficult to style as I have definitely found my niche with this one.

So, white dresses....how many are lurking in your wardrobe? I'd love to hear!

A quick heads up before I go about an exciting competition I am going to be starting later this evening on Instagram. You could be in with a chance of winning one of these gorgeous The Jackson London jute bags.....just like my *SMILE* bag above. 

There is only one up for grabs but you get to choose between the two above. All you have to do is follow @myfashionable40s and @sandandsaltlife and tag 2 friends in the comments on the post. It's will run until Sunday 16th July - 9PM when the winner will be announced. Good luck everyone!

Back again later in the week. It's time to start planning the next holiday wardrobe.....we are off again 4 weeks today to our beloved St Tropez!
