My Summer Dress Lyst

I am fed up feeling cold now so thought I would focus on the warmer months ahead instead by thinking how I could refresh my wardrobe for spring and summer.  To be honest I think I should breakaway from wearing the same type of outfit everyday, usually I can be found in jeans and a hoodie or depending on how warm it is possibly shorts and a t-shirt of some description but it would be nice to have a wider choice of clothes to pick from. 

My friends that I am close to now wear lovely clothes, we are planning more nights out and trips away so it would be a good idea to pick out some dresses for those new occasions so I could feel as confident as my friends.  I have been looking on Lyst as I am pretty clueless when it comes to fashion, I know what I like of course but it might not be what is in style of the moment.  Least by looking on here even I cannot go far wrong, Lyst is like a personal shopping experience but without having to leave the comfort of your own home or feel you are under the scrutiny of another person.  Some of the designs are very bold so if you want a more unique look this is the place to find it.  Vivid colours are one of the trends for this spring and Lyst certainly have plenty of dresses with that description to pick from!  Keep an eye out for ruffles, stripes and sheer pretty dresses.

Here are a few of my favourite dresses from the site, although in real life I probably would have to save hard before I could buy two of them.  But I am sure my readers have different budgets so possibly could benefit from this list or at least have some dresses you can day dream about, the one in the £1000+ price frame most likely!

It would be worth the cut backs to get my hands on the Green Crystal Embellished Mint Jungle Bloom Gown (£1295), the beautiful dress with embroidered crystals around the waist would keep hubbie’s eyes firmly on me helping him forget all his work stresses of late.  I have never really splurged on myself but I could quite happily do so without feeling guilty to get hold of a dress like that.  Being backless is perfect for the warmer weather, when you feel more carefree and happy, not covered up in a million and one layers, a hat and gloves!


If you want something with stripes this Black Harbor Dress is very affordable at £82, light and sleeveless it is ideal for a warm summer, you can look stylish without being uncomfortable in the heat.


The print on the multicolor 'zoe' Leaf Print Waist Tie Silk Dress (£310) is very striking, the dress seems to gather in all the right places too so will compliment your figure.  You have a vivid pattern without it being too overboard with colour, great if you want a compromise for this spring trend.


I feel more excited for spring and summer now!
