Throwback Thursday - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my lovelies,
Many thanks for stopping by today. I love having you here and value your support!
We are heading into what has to be my favourite season.  Warm sunny days followed by balmy nights.  Wearing minimum clothing in bright colours that make me feel alive!  Celebrating the relaxing warm weather that makes me feel alive and happy.  I so wish we could all be back to normal, sharing drinks with friends with much laughter and plenty of good food - I bet your wishing for the same too!

I've come to realise I like wearing dresses, in fact I LOVE wearing dresses and prefer to see me wearing them too.  When I see photos of me in trousers and jeans I look at a short, frumpy lady trying to copy the slender, leggy models that spring out of my IG stories.  Never happy are we?
Anyway to alleviate that I've just ordered three dresses on the Next website and am looking forward to seeing how they look.  I've also ordered a pair of nude court shoes that were too cheap not to buy - let's hope they are as good as they sound.
So until they arrive I'm sharing a previously seen Marks and Spencer dress in soft summer shades. I'd still love you to join my #Chicandstylish #LINKUP  Just click the link below and I'll be checking what wonderful outfits you're all wearing and I can't wait!

I picked this dress up in the Marks & Spencer sale a couple of years ago, it's proved a valuable holiday piece and I've taken in with me most summer trips.  Do stop by to read the full story, it was from my Style Steal series and was a good 'copy' of another bloggers elegant style.
Love this similar dress from Marks & Spencer.
