one summer dream

£21.99 at missguided

When you're not allowed to do something, you'll only want to do it more. That's how I feel about my current shopping ban situation. I saw this dress a few days ago from missguided and desperately want it. The Peter Pan collar that just isn't getting old? Check. Capped sleeves? Check. Ever-so-slightly cinched-in waist? Check. Adorably beautiful pattern and design? Check and check. Although I'm more of a shorts-and-tee kind of girl, I hope to indulge in more sweet dresses like the one above this spring/summer.

SPEAKING OF SUMMER, at the train station today I found myself taking off my coat - I know! - and purposely standing on the wrong platform to glorify in the sunshine. I marveled at my lack of sunnies, taking a mental note to remember them from now on, and squinted at that beautiful blue sky. I like summer if that wasn't obvious.

Even more so this year too because I'm going to V Festival! Look at this bad boy:

I hope to enjoy V and a myriad of other things this summer and I CANNOT wait.

  7. I've got my eye on that dress too! I think £21.99 is quite good value but I've never had anything from misguided before. So jealous your off to V this year, the line is amazing, Plan B plus Artic Monkeys will be a good night on main stage. I went last year and it was great fun.
