My Top 6 Summer Dresses

It's another gloriously sunny day here in Carlow. The heat is so intense I have to keep coming in out of it, we're just not used to it. Absolutely loving it though, everyone is in such good form! Plus I'm loving listening to the little girl next door splashing in the paddling pool with her friend, they're full of giggles and excitement. It's a long time since I filled a padding pool for mine. My two are 22 and 15 but I did get to fill the bath for my youngest this morning. One day soon, that'll stop too. A huge part of me wants to pause the clock and rewind but a bigger part of me is enjoying watching my boys grow into men that I'm beyond proud of.

Got a little side tracked there (kids will do that to you) Anywho, today I've just been hanging around the house trying to enjoy some sunshine, as I was working the last two days. I pulled out a sundress that I bought in Penneys I think 2 years ago. We all have summer pieces that we pull out every summer and are filed under the category 'just for wearing in the garden'. Well this dress is one of those. 





So I was sitting in the sun and got to thinking about summer dresses and how easy they are to wear. They are so cool and airy in the heat and for styling you simply team with your favourite summer flats, wedges or canvas runners. I have done some online window shopping and have put together 6 of my favourite Summer Dresses. The styles I have selected definitely aren't 'just for wearing in the garden'......you can go places in these dresses!



A Floral dress simply has to be in my top 6. Floral is the print of each and every summer season. Did you know prints have a terrific slimming factor, hiding any unwanted lumps and bumps? Prints also offer so my styling options, with this particular dress you can accessorise with white, red, blue or black.

Red seems to be catching my eye a lot lately. It's a colour that really suits my colouring. The bow detail on this dress is just fab! For quite a simple dress I love how the bow gives it character.

Maxi dresses are brilliant pieces to have in your wardrobe. Team with flats for an effortless cool look or with heels for a little more glamour.

How pretty is this frilly midi? Combining my favourite colour red with summers favourite floral print. This one will bring the girly side of you out.

A white dress, I feel is another must for your Summer dress collection. Broderie Anglais and white always go hand in hand in the sunshine. Again this dress is definitely a forever piece.

Have you been tempted by gingham yet this season? I'm really attracted to this black gingham dress from River Island, it just feels like a dress that you could go anywhere in.
