Anyone else bored of the really grotty, miserable weather? I certainly am and have spent the last few weeks day dreaming of the holiday I’ve got booked to Sorrento and Capri in May, long days of gorgeous sunshine, walks across the piazza of a late afternoon and that dilemma us girls always have of just what on earth we should pack in our suitcases.
It doesn’t seem to matter how many holidays I go on I ALWAYS over pack. There’s that pair of trousers you never wear, that skirt that remains in the bottom of the case and those dresses that look great but are terribly impractical in hot weather. Literally when I go away I live in lightweight cotton dresses, often with bright bold prints on and I am a huge fan of jersey maxi dresses as they travel so well (in other words you can screw them up in the suitcase and they still look awesome at the other end).
So it’s no surprise really that my eye has been caught by these floral dress designs from Joules whilst browsing the internet recently seeking holiday dress inspiration. I particularly like this seaside inspired indigo stripe dress with it’s turnback chambray cuffs and nautical theme it would be perfect for those trips down to the quayside and lazy afternoons enjoying cool crisp wine and big bowls of pasta.
For sightseeing and shopping trips this vintage inspired blue and white spot dress is perfect to pack away for an escape to distant shores. The waist panel has been designed to give it a truly feminine look and feel. Team with some flat red sandals or little pumps and big sunglasses for a Jackie O style make-over and the cotton mix will keep you cool even in the heat of the sun or the dazzling Italian price tags on those designer handbags!
The problem is there’s a good three or four dresses that I like on the Joules website which still leaves me with the same problem….too many clothes and not a big enough suitcase. Excess baggage allowances may get tested this year!
