Time for Tea Dress

Oh my, how hot has it been this week? I've realised I haven't really posted many summery outfits, and I must admit, I'm a little conscious when it comes to exposing the legs.

Nevertheless, I had to leave the jeans in the draw and wear something light.

Dress: Primark // Shoes: Newlook @ Asos (similar) // Necklaces: Vintage // Sunglasses: Portobello Market

I just love a tea dress! They're flattering on any figure and so light and airy for hot days. This was bought a few of months ago from Primark (I realise now nearly every post has Primark somewhere. I'm sure I'm not the only shopaholic who adores that store!). I know this print was everywhere a little while ago, so perhaps I'm a bit late on this post! Still, it's a cute, simple print that is perfect for summer.

I've gone for a vintage vibe today, but paired the dress with these chunky soles to add a bit of edge. They're so comfy, I'm so pleased I got these! I'm not sure if these exact ones are available still, but chunky shoes are everywhere right now so picking up similar won't be too difficult!

The pendant necklace was bought at Oxfam. A charity shop rummage is a favourite past-time of mine and I've built a little vintage jewellery collection from doing so at a snip! The chain is from my Great Nana's jewellery box. I never met her, but my Nana let me have a few dress pieces. It's lovely that even little things can be passed down through the generations and still be in style; truly timeless fashion!

How lucky have we been this week with the weather? Unfortunately, like most people, I have to view the sunshine from an office window 9-5.30, Monday to Friday - it still puts me in a better mood though and weekends are always better in the sun (even if it is a bit sticky. EWWW.)

I'm off to Turkey next week with my Mum and I can't wait to relax by the pool, do a bit of sight seeing and of course wear my new, specially bought holiday outfits. I need to get packing!
