Ah the perfect summer's dress. I've avoided wearing this one for too long just because I like it so much that I wanted to wear it on the 'right' occasion. There never is the right occasion; the best thing you can do with favourite pieces is wear them often so that you get squeeze the most enjoyment out of them. That lesson only seems to get half learnt before I squirrel away another find which gets gazed at and stroked but never worn. Perhaps from now on I can learn to take my own advice?

This pretty vintage dress is one I bought on eBay a year or so ago for precious little. It's a lovely thick cotton with lace trim and wide satin straps; the length is modest without being frumpy and it's high cut neckline is just how I like it. As with pretty much every outfit I wore a floral crown, this one being the most simple and subtle which is a lovely quality indeed if you ask me. Leather ankle boots as standard. They were my best buy ever at £1 from a garage sale!
