Last Day of Term: Outfits

It feels like the longest term ever, but finally my two little boys broke up for the summer holidays on Tuesday afternoon. I can't believe my youngest has finished his reception year and my eldest will be going into Year 3 - but for now we have six weeks to chill out together and I can't wait!

This is what I wore to church to the Leaver's Service on another very hot day:


The jersey midi dress is from Uniqlo, I have featured it on the blog before and it has been an excellent buy for such a bargain price! It's so easy to wear, just add sandals or flip flops and you're good to go. The teal colour that I'm wearing has sold out but they still have the dress in grey or dark brown for an unbelievable £7.90 here

I'm wearing it above with my black toe post sandals from Topshop (sold out) and black cross body bag by Nat & Nin at Yard.



The boys broke up after lunch and after a smoothie at our favourite Soulshine Cafe (see my review here) we managed to drag Mr DF away from his work for a game of tennis en famille. It was then a quick change to go out with the girls for a curry before we all disperse for the summer. I wore my True Religion boyfriend jeans with this silk ruffle top from Topshop (over seven years old) and navy suede wedge sandals from LK Bennett (also at least seven years old). I love getting really old things out and seeing if they still work and this top is a particular favourite, it's so pretty and the silk is so thin - perfect for a warm evening:

Hope everyone has a wonderful summer holiday - I will be back with practical but stylish suggestions for the weeks ahead!

  5. Your dress looks as though you are feeling really at home in the sunshine. I just wish I had taken your lead and got my self and my daughter a pair of those toe post sandals from Topshop as we both regret not purchasing.
