Now, I dunno about you, but this suffocating UK heatwave has taught me a number of things.
Firstly, this gal needs more friends who throw last minute barbecues. Secondly my sofa makes a v comfy bed when it’s just too darn scorching in the bedroom to get a decent sleep and thirdly, LOL SUMMER WARDROBE WHERE YOU AT?
My summer wardrobe normally equates to a holiday wardrobe. That is, there’s cute little basically see-through playsuits that look mega thrown over a swimming cossie when you’re sashaying up to a beach bar to get a frozen margarita. They don’t look quite so mega when you’re sashaying down the Central Line escalator at Liverpool Street. Ain’t nobody wanna see this gal’s chaffing butt cheeks.
So yeah, although I’m broke AF because lol my credit card bill from California is heaving and lol, when ya going to pay my invoices hun? I accidentally slipped and fell into an ASOS vortex of happiness.
Which is where I found this Monki hun just lurking about, waiting to be bought.
It is GINORMOUS.
(I ordered a large).
Actually ginormous. Like a four-man tent someone’s had hiding away in their shed from the seventies.
But I love it, regardless. It’s light and flowy and ridiculously comfortable. AND IT HAS SLEEVES. And I don’t have to worry about my scaly hairy shins making a bid for escape.
It is a bit see-through, so it’s best teamed with a trusty M&S slip, but I’m holding out hope it’ll look kinda cute in autumn teamed with a biker jacket, ankle boots and ideally some sort of jazzy printed coffee cup from Starbucks.
I nipped it in with a skinny black belt I found in my wardrobe, and then just wore my fave flat ASOS sandals and a straw bag from La Redoute which never seems to be online so here’s a similar one.
I’m hoping to find more of this kinda dress on the internet, ~ideally~ in the sales. So keep ya eyes peeled for me, will ya?
I’m currently waiting for this Marks and Spencer one to go into the sale as well as desperately wishing this one was still available in my size, sob. It’s a really exciting life I lead.
