Old Faithful

dress - topshop, cardi - orla keily, shoes - clarks, bracelet - kate spade

I am so ridiculously happy it's sunny right now! It's prety much been six months since we had a nice sunny day in London, so naturally out came my favourite sun dress for the first time this year. Ok, it's not really that warm yet (though I spent a lot of the weekend moving between strategic patches of sunlight to soak up as much of what warmth there was as possible!) but we're getting there. C'mon British Summer Time, I know you have it in you!

I've had this dress for three years almost exactly (blogs are good for dating your clothes!) and it still gets lots of wear each summer, it's definitely an old faithful in my wardrobe.

I love this dress! All my summer clothes last me forever as there are so few chances to wear them but I definitely made the most of the first sunny weekend - here's to many more! x

Fantastic colours on you. It's reverted to rain in Bristol right now, so I've had to shelve summer dresses since Saturday!

The sun is certainly a very welcome sight! Great dress, I love the pattern and isn't it nice to have a good go-to dress for when the sun does come out?

I used to have this dress! But I wore it only once or twice & in the end gave it up because the collar/neckline used to gape on me, even though it fitted perfectly everywhere else. I didn't know if it was the style of the dress that somehow didn't suit me, or just a rogue cut but ANYWAY, I was completely gutted to get shot of it. WOE. I'm just about over it now though. (Joke.)

I proper adore this cardi of yours.
