The Simple Sundress

We are having such beautiful weather at the moment and I am working my way through my summer bag of old favourites that get an airing once or twice a year. Mostly dresses, and many that I have had for more years than I care to remember! Today’s dress is from Gap and it must be about 4 years old. It could really do with an extra couple of inches on the bottom, but it’s still a firm favourite and today I borrowed the gingham belt from my Mango dress to give it a little ‘dresslift’. It got me thinking about how lovely a little cotton sundress is to wear in this weather, so here is a round up of my favourites. Almost all in the sale too!
