I’ve recently come back from a week long break away with my in laws. It was a lovely week spent in a house in Cornwall and the weather was amazing!

Packing for Cornwall with two kiddies was surprisingly easy this time around. I’ve been before so I knew what to expect (leave the heels at home) but it packing made so much easier thanks to a handful of beautiful dresses that I found on the high street.

Mango Gingham Cotton Dress

Regular followers will know that I love Ganni and Khaite for sophisticated cotton Summer dresses, and right now the high street seems to be taking a lot of inspiration from these two brands and coming up with their own. Like this gorgeous Mango Gingham dress with cross back detail that I featured on my Instagram reel. At £49.99 it’s definitely cheaper than Ganni but the quality is absolutely amazing. I can definitely see myself getting plenty of wear out of this over the Summer.

Why Choose Cotton for Summer?

The breathability of this versatile fabric makes it a clear choice for Summer outfits. Superior in quality, it’s one of the best fabrics because it is light and keeps you cool versus say, cheaper fabrics like polyester which can actually make you hotter in the higher temps. Shop around and you can find some amazing pieces at low prices.

Vent Dresses

Right now I am loving 90s nostalgic dressing, especially vent dresses with tactical cut out sections that are flatting on the waist. I have this Mango vent dress in both blue and green – I love the popping colours and the low plunging neckline which is perfect for those who are top heavy.

Prints

I’m not normally a huge print lover, but in the spirit of Summer I’ve actually broken my own style rule and filled my wardrobe with some stunning prints. 

 

When styling this gorgeous zebra print dress from Whistles (£139) I keep to black and gold. The black Birkenstocks that I practically live in work well with this and I love pairing it with my Love Ruby Ross gold filled personalised bracelets.
