The Easy Throw-On Summer Dress…

Someone has very kindly pointed out to me that Whistles currently have 20% off everything, including the gorgeous Lola dress that I wore on a recent trip to France. I mentioned that I wanted to buy it in khaki, so I was quick as a fox when I heard about the discount. Unfortunately, I have to wait for a call-back because the khaki one is an “order from store” item, but they have it to buy online in black (here), orange (here) and navy (here). All are reduced to £76 instead of £95.

The dress has a really relaxed fit, but the cut is extremely clever – nipped in at the right places so that it doesn’t just hang like a sack. The ultimate throw-it-on dress, looks great with sandals, boots and even Stan Smiths! The black is very chic indeed – I’m considering ordering a back-up version – but I do love a bit of khaki to jazz things up a bit. If jazz is the right word. (What is your sartorial life coming to when you consider khaki to be a jazzy splash of colour?!)

Other things in my basket, though I’m going to order them all at once when they phone me back: the bardot top, the striped Josie Dress and the double dot print Hannah dress. I’m tempted by lots of other things, but I have to rein myself in – I’m still trying to justify my one-wear Cannes dress from Issa*…

*realistically, not “one-wear”, as I could potentially pull it out for a couple of the weddings I have this summer, but it’s not actually the easiest dress to cope with. Quite low cut, boobs have a tendency to make an accidental appearance, and it’s so long that the trip hazard threat is very real.
