Since June, I’ve been telling anyone who cares to listen “summer is almost here!, It’s nearly time for summer“.
Finally. It’s Summer, and I’m overjoyed.
I’m now in my third year as a resident of Queensland and after previously experiencing the hottest two summers on record, this year I’m putting myself on a strictly dress diet to ride out the impending heat wave.
These are a few faves I’ve been eyeing off this month but, there are only so many summer dresses one girl can own, so I’ll content myself with lusting from afar and share them with you instead.
As always shop mindfully and only invest in something you love and will wear to death.
I own this dress and packed it for my Perth trip last month. I love it so much I wore it three times in a week! The print is cute, it’s super flattering and held up under the 30 degree Western Australian sun. It also comes in green.
This organic cotton stunner is perfect for brunch, afternoon drinks and your work Christmas party. As with most of Kowtow’s designs, it’s also the prefect layering piece and will transition into your winter wardrobe with ease.
I think nearly every Australian woman has owned a Cue piece at some stage of her life. Australian made and Ethical Clothing Australia certified, cue dresses are the timeless staple you need in your wardrobe. I’m loving this for Sunday BBQ’s.
This beautiful cotton number is handmade by artisans in New Dheli, who Hazel and Folk work closely with. Their durable designs were created to be be worn year after year and become softer and get better with age.
Another Byron Bay label, they’re all so beautiful! This lovely little number has adjustable straps and waist tie so you can customise the style a little. This would be perfect for your next holiday, sipping cocktails by the sea.
