I cannot express how nice it feels to bare my (very pale) arms and legs for once and not be absolutely freezing! I never tend to brave it in England as it never feels right unless the weather is scorching. I'm also loving not wearing chunky boots and giving my feet a breather for once! Yesterday I went shopping in Puerto Banus and picked up some Zara goodies as the prices are so much cheaper down here. I also purchased some Kiko and La Roche Posay make-up which I will be featuring on my blog soon.

I featured this dress in an outfit post a while back but layered it over a chiffon blouse to create a suitable Winter look. I have been dying to wear this as a Summer dress ever since and now I finally can! I love the smock style shape, it makes it so easy to wear and especially on holiday when you want something lightweight. It's incredibly short and I'm only 5'3 so I would not recommend this to tall people! I never saw this on the website or in any store other than the one in my hometown for some reason. River Island do have it in an alternative brighter print but I think this neutral shade is a lot nicer. I have paired it with a simple statement necklace and my rose gold spiked sandals. I bought these a long time ago, probably around February, so I'm not sure if they still stock them. I love these sandals to death and they haven't given me any blisters so far (touch wood)!
