Did someone say unlimited Pimm’s with the company card behind the bar? Don’t mind if we do…
A summer party, be it for business or pleasure, is the perfect excuse to slip into something stunning and slinky and lap up the sunshine with a cocktail or mocktail in hand, and as the 19th of July has passed us by, the opportunity to socialize freely with our loved ones is finally a reality.
BBQ’s, lockdown belated birthday parties, Love Island viewing evenings ending at the club (because now THAT’S a thing again) mean the pressure is on to find a summer soirée outfit you can rely on when spontaneity calls.
Can I just say I am so here for Warehouse this year – they’ve really stepped it up with their summer edit and their dress game is strong, just look at the tie back detail on this midi dress. I love a party at the back! It’s one of those dresses that looks ‘done’ however you wear it, whether you’re going laidback with flats for a bbq or dressing it up with heeled sandals, a slick bun and a red lip for that summer soiree.
I can’t wait till we get a bit more sun. My whole wardrobe is full of cute summer dresses just begging to be worn. I’ll pop on a cute midi number, I’m loving the gingham at the moment despite being told I look like a picnic blanket. Pop it with some cute white accessories and gold jewellery and I’m ready for all the cocktails a girl can ask for.

wardrobe, alongside pink of course! This cherry mesh dress from ASOS is so cute, I paired it with orange accessories including this little ruched bag from PLT which just looks so designer in my opinion. This ‘goddess’ slogan necklace from Hoops and Chains is so cool and gold jewellery looks bloody lovely in Summer with a tan!

My mum recently bought this dress and it didn’t fit her right so I pinched it off her and I think it’s the perfect Summer Party dress. You can easily dress it down with flat sandals and a denim jacket if you’re not sure how smart you need to go (classic summer party problem). But I’ve chosen to pair it with some pony skin style mules, a cool brown mini bag and and a gold T-bar necklace.
The thought of a summer party fills me with SO much joy- something about work events like that (especially when working in this dream team) are one of the things I’ve been most looking forward to since lockdown easing, and now that the weather has brightened up I am READY. I recently bought a couple of bits from Nasty Gal and was pleasantly surprised by the fit and quality so I have high hopes for this lilac number. I’ve dressed it down a little bit with some chunky trainers so it’s not toooo girly and with some chunky sunglasses it’s pretty much the definition of my fave summer look!
