My enthusiasm with the opportunity of experiencing some real summery weather was interrupted with a dreadful realization: I haven’t got appropriate clothes. I raided my wardrobe trying to put some outfits together but my holiday clothes are mostly beachwear (so not suitable for office, no matter how hot) and anything summery I bought before for Irish summers, was just too warm!
I found a few trusty pieces though, some of which I was considering getting rid of and this experience convinced me to hold on to them.
The first one was the dress below. Thanks to it’s dropped waist and loose fitting shape, it’s super comfy and I always reached for it as a trusty staple (usually with black opaques and a blazer though). It proved perfect for the real Irish summer and totally city-appropriate.
