Style Update: The easy peasy dress

Sometimes summer dressing needs to be as easy as possible – especially when its boiling out, you have no idea what to wear and you’re running about 15 minutes late for the day ahead. For these moments, I have a series of about five dresses for every season that will get me through the impossibly late situations. They are the dresses I can reach for to throw on, with a great pair of shoes, and simply run out the door. A mirror isn’t even needed, I just slip into the dress and out I go. I always tell friends and clients alike, these are dresses that are essentials in life, not optional. They will actually improve your day to day existence as it takes the fashion stress straight out of your life in an instant. 

Now, let me introduce you to one of my staples. This is a dress that has come on every trip with me for the past three weeks. I have worn it every way imaginable, mostly accessorizing it up with chunky earrings or statement shoes. But, it’s been a lifesaver as it’s pretty shapeless, which means I can devour the breadbasket and not have to worry about walking around with a food baby belly in a tight dress. It’s also a boho chic shape, allowing for air to actually circulate around you. On a hot day, this is a blessing.

Oh, and it’s now on sale. Win, win, people. 

What I’m Wearing:

John Lewis AND/OR Dress (also comes in a burnt red colour), La Redoute Sandals
