What she wore – Next summer dress

This beautiful Next patchwork dress is a proper summer dress. It’s a foreign holiday summer dress. It’s not a 17 degrees and thick cloud British summer dress. But does that stop my daughter from wearing it? Of course not!

The dress was among the things my daughter chose for herself for her birthday She started wearing it soon after her birthday – despite the ridiculously cold March and April weather. She just wore it with a pair of pink H&M tights and a long-sleeved top from a Next three pack underneath, which is perfect for this sort of thing.

And if it’s cold outside, just wear it with your favourite coat and your warm boots. You can get away with it when you’re 7.

She’s even been known to wear it with wellies! Very stylish Next ones.

I’d hoped to bring you a photo of it being worn ‘properly’ in Barcelona. But it wasn’t quite warm enough, so we’ve got it with a cardigan. But at least there’s no tights! It would of course look more stylish with sandals or more edgy with Converse, but she’s wearing it with her Crocs because she had lots of walking to do and needed to be comfortable!

  4. Such a pretty dress, she’s definitely got her money’s worth by making it a dress for any season! I wish I had her layering skills.

  5. Thanks very much, everyone! She is a stylish little lady! Not everyone can get away with wellies and a summer dress, but she manages to pull it off! It’s a good job really or she’d get no wear out of it at all!
