The Sun Has Got His Hat On

12:26









Dress - Primark
Shoes - New Look
Hat - Matalan

I'm so happy that the sun seems to be making a reappearance and giving me the opportunity to wear my summer dresses again before they are replaced with big thick knits and chunky boots.  Now, whilst I will admit that I am looking forward to being able to lounge around in big cosy jumpers and shop for boots and a new winter coat, I want to make the most of the sunshine and my summer wardrobe seeing as we get so little of it here in rainy England.

None of this outfit is particularly new, in fact I think I got the dress and shoes at the end of last summer and the hat about 3 summers ago.  This is why I love this outfit, as I can see it being an outfit I wear summer after summer until it has been worn to death.  In total this outfit cost me £21, so when you think of the cost per wear it is an absolute steal.  I love these little tea dresses from Primark, they are a bargain at £8, and are light and comfy making them perfect for hot summer days and I love how the print on this one gives it a vintage feel, and vintage is not something that is going out of fashion quick.  This winter I'm planning on having a huge wardrobe clearout and am going to try to make a conscious effort to fill it with timeless pieces that will last, and not make impulse buys that I will wear once or twice then leave hanging on the rail for the rest of the season.  To be honest I'm not sure how well I'll do with this, as when it comes to clothes I am a terrible hoarder, but this year I'm determined to be ruthless.  When your rail starts to collapse because it can't take the strain, it's time to get rid!
