Despite the seemingly ever changing weather, we’re on the cusp of summer and as always, it will creep up when you’re not looking and leave you in that awkward place where you have nothing suitable to wear.
Personally, in the summer I like to keep things as simple as possible. If it’s really hot, I want to be able to count on trusty pieces in cool fabrics to see me through the day without melting into an angry, uncomfortable puddle.
On a day to day basis, running around at home, taking care of the school run etc I’ll be wearing jeans or printed harems, a light cami top and flip flops, with my hair in some form of disarray and a pair of sunglasses perched on my head. But it’s summer! I want to do better than that!
This summer I have a hen do, a wedding and a few nights out to buy outfits for, which ya know, I’d like to make an effort for… But never fear! JD Williams have a whole host of affordable, fashionable dresses that will save those frustrating “I have nothing to wear,” moments . Whether it’s for a special occasion or every day wear, they’ve got it covered. Here are my picks…
Don’t judge me, but I’ve never been on a hen night before so this is totally new territory for me – however I’ve fallen in love with this wrap front, printed jump suit – worn with some boots and a statement necklace, it’d look really edgy and cool – perfect for having lots of fun in.
Weddings are always very long affairs, you go from feeling very glam and formal early on and it gets more relaxed as the day and night wear on. I think this lace hem pleated maxi dress is a great compromise – formal enough with heels and some sparkly accessories, and maybe once the reception party kicks off – slip on some flats to dance the night away!

Girl’s night out:
For a girl’s night out I don’t want to worry too much about what I’m wearing, I want to feel relaxed and confident. I’d opt for something like this plain linen mix dress, I’d wear it with a leather biker jacket, chunky boots and my hands covered in rings to make it edgier. For details click here.
For lazy days when I don’t want to feel “too much” I’d opt for something simple and black, which I can dress up or down depending on my mood. This black, cut-out midi dress would be perfect with some sandals and chunky jewelry. See here for dress details.
So those are my summer picks, what are your summer essentials? I’d love to know!
