Coral stripes and summer sandals...

You know that you have bought a good dress when you can't stop thinking about it and are getting excited to wear it when you get back off holiday! I found this dress in the Gap sale the day before I went away and although I was seriously tempted to take it with me, I resisted as I knew it would be perfect for work. The best part though was the price! I ended up paying about £14 for it as the sale price had an extra 10% off. A super cute dress AND with extra money off? I was sold! You can see from these pictures just how swooshy it is. I love a full skirted dress and felt like a million dollars in this one!

Dress: Gap, shoes: Dorothy Perkins
I didn't take my glasses on holiday with me so the last few weeks have been pretty weird as I have to get used to seeing life through a lens again. I am getting a little bit bored with my current frames so might get some new ones, any recommendations?


I have complained before about dressing for work in summer but this dress may have solved all of my workwear problems! The length makes it comfortable to wear and the higher neckline means that you don't feel too exposed. There's nothing worse than wearing something that you thought was long enough and then having to pull it down all day! I have raved about these sandals before but I think they are the perfect summer sandals for both work and play - I just need to find a pair in every other colour now!


Where should I go for my new frames? Any tips on how to dress for work in the summer?

I hate trying to dress for work in the summer, depending on who I'm working with it's either freezing from air-con or swelteringly hot. If I'm doing a clinic I'm stuck in a stuffy room in full on polyester, I'm a literal hot mess! x

Gorgeous colour on you! I'm wearing thin dresses that come to the knee but have a little sleeve at the moment. My work is always tricky because I do a lot of manual things but need to look smart x
