I have loads of do's this summer.

I don't have much money - I was in matalan on Sat and tried on some stuff. What I was thinking was

this jacket

all of these dresses

Summer wardrobe, sorted. Same shoes/bag for each event.

Am I nuts?

The link to the jacket just takes me to a duvet set.

I like the first pink dress - the rest, no so much at all. Being linen to may also want to check that they don't crease really badly. If you suit the style and like them, they do all look like different dresses rather than 4 variations of the same dress iykwim

You might want to start of by just getting one to see how it wears, washes and creases then if you like it get the rest.

The jacket is "bella linen jacket"

Just getting one is a good idea. But I'm lazy wink

The Tallulah jacket is nice too freddie

Some lovely dresses there smile but I seem to get a different selection every time I click the link!

There's 4 dresses that look quite different

Hang on ...

Search penny linen dress - one of the dresses is called a Laura

I thought the jacket in grey and then the dresses??

I think they are all really nice.

To check how we'll the dresses will crease just take a handful of the fabric and scrumple it in your hand for 10 seconds before letting go.

If it looks like a dishrag then I wouldn't buy it ,as that is what it'll look like after a couple of hours wear
