Well the Summer Sales are in full swing aren't they. Have you bagged yourself anything good? Being of the Capsule Wardrobe persuasion I haven't been hitting those sales too hard, but I have treated myself to this lovely new Summer Dress. I've made a point of allowing myself the odd piece as this isn't the #100daynospend like I've previously done. To add some valued pieces 
Knowing that my summer dresses get pulled out year upon year, I am always happy to add one each year to the collection. This is most definitely a good one that I will look forward to sunny days to wear it.
I also found these summer dresses on sale

 How gorgeous is that gingham number?

This slight bohemian, easy dress is super soft, has an elasticated waistband and is just the comfiest thing ever to wear.
The rest of the outfit is all from previous summers, The jacket must be 2 years old and the shoes 3+.. The bag is ancient, but it goes to show, buy good pieces and they will last you summer upon summer.

Photos this week by my Lovely Stepdaughter, Mia, taken on my phone (hence the soft focus shall we call it;) as The Husband has been working some pretty ridiculous hours this week.. Thank God its the weekend!

Outfit details:
Dress: Warehouse via House Of Fraser
