Every summer same old story. I open my wardrobe to find jumpers, long sleeved blouses and cute OTK socks. Once again I have forgotten to plan for summer. I look around the shops trying to find something nice, but it usually consists of bright colours and loud prints.
How does everyone else cope? I read other people’s blogs or youtube channels about how to dress for summer and they have somehow managed to pick up some Victorian inspired lace beauty or light flowing dresses with interesting Gothic prints.
Well I am going shopping this weekend to try and find some cheap summery outfits. Maybe something like this light and airy parachute dress by All Saints.
I would love to hear how you are all coping and what are your tips and tricks to staying cool.

This is quite a thin dress so it doesn’t get worn in the winter:
