This shirt dress from River Island is currently my favourite thing in my wardrobe, it’s online only which can be tricky but it’s exactly how I imagined it would be and I could pretty much wear it all summer. Lightweight but not too sheer, loose fitting without hanging like a sack, it’s perfect. And I absolutely love the shape it creates when draped over my beloved Topshop trousers, I litch feel like I’m in pyjamas and I’m definitely OK with that. And this is the kind of thing I love to layer in summertime, longline shirts, cute kimonos or super light duster coats, I love the swishy, relaxed silhouette it creates, I call it my A level art teacher vibe.

Now let’s talk about these mules, I mean can you? Coz I actually can’t! I’d wanted a pair of orange mules since seeing these in & Other Stories but as they are much more of a trend piece to me than anything else I couldn’t quite justify the price, so when I managed to find these from Wallis can you believe? after searching on Zalando for a mere £33 I just COULD NOT resist.
