The midi dress was huge and will continue to be,  I am desperate to throw one on now the weather has got a little warmer.

FALLING INTO THE ONE GOOD WEATHER DAY FASHION TRAP

Starved of sun and colour the minute the sun comes out we think we can haul out the dresses and ditch the coat only to be freezing by midday.

This is where the oversized cardigan comes in, get one now as there are still so many on sale.  They are also perfect to throw on over shorts and  dresses later on in the year.

I have my eye on a cardigan from American Vintage, it’s now £70 or do I go for the new season which is in this cracking  cherry colour .  The dress featured below is from Rixo and I tried it on at the fabulous Diverse Boutique.  This style doesn’t suit me as I am too hip heavy I need something cut straighter or in a coat dress style. The dress below would be perfect for someone more petite.

Tara Jarmon also has so many fabulous cardigans which are worth checking out and also still in sale.  As well as longer ones they also have lots of shorter options to wear over a pencil skirt or joggers.

Bimba and Lola has a glorious grey one which is the easiest colour to throw on or check out the new season AD option.

Wear the cardigan now over your shoulders and pair with one of these fabulous midi dresses! Loving The Vampires Wife, Cefinn, ASOS , Masscob and H&M or Ghost where I found some amazing skirts and dresses this week.  I ended up buying the skirt version of the dress I am wearing below as it is a bit more practical and I ordered a Topshop hoodie to wear over it.

I haven’t yet found the perfect midi/ calf length dress in my price range, that’s ok as I love the thrill of the chase! I got the look just got to find the dress. I am stalking Vestiaire for a Rosie Assoulin one.

The dress cannot be too folk like we are all over that look or too heavy so you cannot wear it once the sun comes out either, I fell into that trap with Dodo Bar, which I am wearing above.

The dress was great when I tried it on in February but impossible to wear in Summer, shop wisely at this time of the year.
