Holding Onto Summer

Denim Dress: Primark, Body: Next, Shoes: Primark, Watch: Michael Kors 

The past week we have welcomed the official day of autumn and entered into the darker and colder months by bringing in September. The start of exciting festivities and the countdown to Christmas has now begun; deep down I am jumping for joy at the thought of cosy knits, woolly hats and festive coffees (oh the calories!) 

I do love these next few months, they are my absolute faves but I am just not quite ready to wave goodbye to summer, well what we had of it anyway. 

This denim shirt dress from Primark has been one of my go to pieces these past few months, it is so comfortable being loose fitting and more of a cotton fabric than denim and it just looks effortlessly stylish, all you need to do is throw it on and add some brogues or loafers and you are good to go. 

Instead of lumping it at the bottom of my wardrobe or packing it away for another year it was time I got a little bit more creative and transitioned the dress into my autumn wardrobe. It is the most simplest of ideas but I cannot say I came up with it myself, it is all thanks to the high street stores; pairing a denim dress with a cute tee underneath; all hail layering!!! 

By wearing this 3/4 sleeve body underneath is a smart way of adding an extra layer to add that warmth on a colder day without having to cover up with thick jumpers and coats. Not only that but the khaki shade added the autumnal vibe in the simplest way.

  1. Love the outfit. This is just a bittersweet time isn't in? Autumn is so exciting but so is summer and you kind of want both of them at once.
