FASHION | The Red Summer Dress


This post features two of my favourite summer fashion staples. I'm excited.

A lot of people don't like dressing in the summer. Too hot, can't be bothered to wear anything at all, annoyed at the idea of sweating in your pretty clothes every time you move your little finger... I get all that. However, I do find that dressing in the summer is so easy: a pair of shorts and a top, or a floaty dress, and I'm good to go. May not be the most stylish combo ever, but it works.
Take this dress for example: I love wearing it and would do so every day if it was hygienically acceptable. It is a little New Look number, red with little white and black flowers on it. I got it a month or so ago, but you can find similar dresses in a variety of shops.


In the summer, going for light and floaty materials is the key to keeping cool. Dresses are particularly easy, but you could also do with a cute shorts and top coord, which we see a lot of at the moment.
Another easy piece to have in your wardrobe is a good pair of trainers. A few years ago I would swear that I would never wear trainers, and yet here I am, reaching for them most days - especially my trusty old pair of Adidas Stan Smiths... But recently I got these Lacoste beauties. There are all white, with the famous embroidered crocodile logo on each side. They are super comfy and can be worn with literally anything - my only worry is that they won't stay that white forever... Any tips for keeping trainers white? I'll take any ideas!

Because my boyfriend recently arrived from California, I've been out and about in Bath a lot, exploring new paths and places. Every adventure makes me love this city a little more... I will have to leave it soon but I already know that one day, I'll be back. 


What is your go-to outfit in the summer?

  6. Firstly, I agree with your outfit choices fully; white trainers are an ESSENTIAL in Summer. I own a white pair of Nike Air Max 90S and they've served me well.😊 Furthermore, floral dresses are also important and a fashion staple which I am yet to buy from Primark. I particularly like their dresses as they're affordable, very lightweight, airy and pretty,sort of. If anything, that's where I'd buy any of my summer dresses from.😊 Thanks for sharing this post!

  7. I love summer dressing, dresses, skirts and floaty tops are the best! I am not sure about white trainers though. I get everything dirty within seconds, so i never dared to purchase some.

  12. This is such a cute look and definitely something I want to wear! I'll admit that my favorite season to dress is fall because I love oversized sweaters with all my heart, but for some reason this summer I've really been loving summer dresses. They're so easy and cute and pretty. I especially love wearing a pair of sneakers with them like you did in this look.
