I’ve been on the hunt for a simple striped summer dress for ages. This one is linen and only £25 from Sainsbury’s Tu.
I’ve been pinning striped skirts and loose dresses for a while now in the hopes that summer will be here soon. The combination of the two just seems right for warmer weekdays and even on holiday by the coast (hopefully later). This cute sleeveless dress from Sainsbury’s Tu is great purely because of its simplicity. It does come with a narrow white belt which cinches in the waist for more of a retro look if you like but I left mine off to create more of a relaxed, shift look that I think suits the linen fabric better. The addition of pockets would have been the only extra I’d have preferred. As it is, it’s just a really sweet dress, perfect for adding accessories and layers (which is good because it’s still not that warm up north yet).

And look, it makes a pretty nice skirt too.
