This is the third summer that I have been living in this dress. Literally: I’ve even wearing it several times a week, everywhere. Well, ‘everywhere’ in this case means both at home and on our walks in the neighbourhood, but you get my point.
This dress was my best friend during the summer heatwave, as it is the only thing I could bear wearing. Made of thick viscose, it is cool on the skin and sort of floats around me. And on (slightly) cooler evenings it was the obvious choice to wear on our after-work-walks as it requires minimal styling or thinking. Just pull it out of the closet, put it on and go.
It’s for the same reason I usually pack this dress whenever, or wherever, I travel: it’s my ‘breakfast outfit’. You see, I’m not a morning person, and especially on holiday I like to sleep as late as possible. Thus, if I had to shower, put on make up and get dressed before breakfast, I’d never get anything to eat. Instead, I just roll out of bed, put on this dress and go and have breakfast (usually just before the breakfast buffet closes), then go back to the room to shower and dress properly.
