Hello everyone
Old thread

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 13:38:43

Today I'm at work so uniform.. but heading to the beach after work so it will be denim shorts and a t shirt for me with flip flops. It's a scorcher! Hard to look stylish in this heat tbh.

MinesaPinot Tue 23-Jul-19 13:49:35

This from Cos (but it's not as droopy on me as it is on the model!) and ballet flats

Very warm in London so this is nice and airy!

slipperyeel Tue 23-Jul-19 14:12:32

Hush Monaco trousers and a hush black T-shirt. Didn’t mean to be all hush!
Silver Birkenstock’s
Astley Clark choker

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 14:15:14

I like it @MinesaPinot

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Tue 23-Jul-19 15:25:22

A cotton beach dress from M&S. It's virtually transparent but nice and cool.

YesQueen Tue 23-Jul-19 17:35:20

Trying on a new dress, this will be for work tomorrow I think

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 17:43:08

Lovely dress @YesQueen where's it from?

YesQueen Tue 23-Jul-19 17:44:09

@Ellapaella it's from Popsy clothing smile

BlythesEyes Tue 23-Jul-19 18:22:03

This frock and shoes. Day off today but I can also wear them to work if I want.
I do have a tendency to wear clothes that people would consider to young for my age, but I don't care anymore grin

princessbear80 Tue 23-Jul-19 18:28:43

Thanks tierra for flexitol advice on last thread. I use it religiously alongside Newton’s chiropody sponges but still always get cracked heels the minute I wear open sandals 😏

small2018 Tue 23-Jul-19 18:45:44

Shorts from George at Asda
Printed Primark vest
Sparkly flat sandals from Faith

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 18:54:46

@small2018 I love those shorts!

AdoraBell Tue 23-Jul-19 19:04:34

Place marking. Standard work clothes, nothing special, currently loafing around in gym gear. Not that I’ve done excersise , not in this bloody heat/humidity combo hmm

GrapefruitGin Tue 23-Jul-19 19:10:16

@BlythesEyes love the dress! Where’s it from?

GrapefruitGin Tue 23-Jul-19 19:15:21

Hope it’s okay to join btw - I loved following the last thread but never posted.

Wore this dress today with black slides

PeoniesarePink Tue 23-Jul-19 19:17:00

Boden navy cotton midi skirt and a M & S per una top in white/blue stripe with a ruffle down one side as I've been at work. Been really cool all day in it to be fair.

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 19:22:01

@GrapefruitGin of course! Everybody's welcome. I love all the links so far.

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 19:22:55

You are all wearing some lovely dresses. I'm in denim shorts and a t shirt today.. sweltering hot 🥵🥵

Pieceofpurplesky Tue 23-Jul-19 19:45:14

Currently knickers and a vest top with no bra. Was far too hot after being out shopping so stripped off 🤣

BlythesEyes Tue 23-Jul-19 19:50:42

£8 41%OFF | Women Vintage Plaid Summer Dress 2019 Celmia Ladies Casual O-neck Sleeveless Beach Sundress Loose Pleated Vestidos Plus Size 5XL

happytobemrsg Tue 23-Jul-19 21:24:34

Place marking!

Seriously running out of flowy maternity clothes. Shorts are now too tight so I’ve resorted to wearing DH’s boxers around the house. Let’s hope I manage to find some clothes to wear tomorrow 🙈

Jellystars Tue 23-Jul-19 21:27:00

Oh can I join?
I wore a midi dress from New Look, cropped denim jacket and black sandals from Boohoo.
@BlythesEyes love that outfit.

small2018 Tue 23-Jul-19 21:45:06

@BlythesEyes I like that dress!!

BestIsWest Tue 23-Jul-19 21:45:33

Absolutely nothing at the moment (I am in a hotel room on my own so no one needs to avert their eyes). Earlier (work) I wore an A line knee length navy linen dress and flat yellow sandals. Lovely and comfortable.

Lobsterquadrille2 Tue 23-Jul-19 21:48:35

I was wearing a dress (Next) with a suit jacket and opaque tights. In a non air conditioned windowless office - it was pretty horrible. The jacket and tights are mandatory and I hate the feel of sheer tights.

Leftielefterson Tue 23-Jul-19 21:58:02

I wore this but I didn’t pay that price for it. Had it in the sale. Really lovely and cool.

Ellapaella Tue 23-Jul-19 22:31:42

Oh wow @Leftielefterson - beautiful dress.

happytobemrsg Wed 24-Jul-19 08:56:29

Ellapaella Wed 24-Jul-19 09:20:23

Love it @happytobemrsg
My two youngest are already begging to get in the paddling pool. Today I'm going to wear my new Hush dress. Love the shape of this, wearing with flip flops today but can definitely be dressed up for a night out.
Will hat a straw hat when I hit the beach later.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 24-Jul-19 09:54:50

Very boring today, for a day of jobs - Sainsbury's, post office for euros etc:

Denim mini from Next

Clark's sandals
I feel and look like somebody else.

championquartz Wed 24-Jul-19 23:20:06

Thank you @small2018 smile

@RemusLupinsBuggestGroupie grin at your post! So did anybody call? You are really tempting the universe. I bet the Queen called, didn’t she?? Popped around for a cuppa/beer.grin

MrsPear Thu 25-Jul-19 09:47:37

But today im wearing dress from Monsoon. Plus shoes and my Kipling bag which is tan and no idea what it is called! Oh and nude undies and trainer socks as it would be rude not too 😂

MrsPear Thu 25-Jul-19 09:48:44

Pipandmum Thu 25-Jul-19 11:45:44

Loose linen top and light jersey leggings. I hate my upper arms so sleeves are three quarter length. I dream of wearing a tank top.

TheGirlWhoLived Thu 25-Jul-19 11:46:22

Far too hot for clothes today. Luckily kids off school so I’m in underwear and a crop top grin

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 25-Jul-19 13:30:59

Champion _ her Madge popped round for a jug of Pimms and didn't mind my outfit at all. She said Rigby and P make her special cotton bras for this weather, which the likes of us mere mortals can only dream of.

Today- loose black M&S shorts
White Mint Velvet sleeveless blouse

I look like my mum.

GrapefruitGin Thu 25-Jul-19 15:20:01

Have been in polyester uniform and tights today! Just got home, showered, washed hair and loose pj T-shirt straight on. Feel much cooler!

You are all sounding very stylish. Yesterday was so so hot I was just wearing my denim shorts and a white t shirt again.

Chipsahoy Fri 26-Jul-19 09:48:59

Bikini yesterday, it was so hot. Had a thin purple cover dress for when I had to answer the door..
Still warm in the house today, so lace light pink high waisted shorts with a plain black, matalan basics vest top. No bra, too hot.

Miseryisabutterfly Fri 26-Jul-19 15:05:22

Strange pose, but old Zara skirt, Zara vest and saltwaters.

Elemental Fri 26-Jul-19 19:13:10

This Monki shirt dress with some short leggings underneath. Out of comfort zone as it’s not black but I love the fantasy kind of print.

Black Jim Morrison t shirt
Black patent doc martens

MaMisled Sat 27-Jul-19 14:09:35

A simple Monsoon dress and some sparkly sandals . Sandals were a risky £8.95 purchase from Ebay. They just arrived and i feel a million dollars in them!

small2018 Sun 28-Jul-19 00:42:23

Wore this today as was off to an Indian wedding 😆

You can't tell from the picture but it's a pale yellow 😊

Ellapaella Sun 28-Jul-19 07:26:47

Beautiful dress @small2018 - you look lovely.

Ellapaella Sun 28-Jul-19 07:27:14

@MaMisled can we have a link or pic of the super bargain eBay sandals?

Sigh81 Sun 28-Jul-19 07:52:33

Kept meaning to join last thread, but now joining this one.

Am about to head off to pilates so: white long-sleeved t-shirt, grey Sweaty Betty jogging trousers.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 28-Jul-19 09:12:39

The weather is so weird. Really grey and rain forecast but still feels hot. I'm struggling to know what to wear but will probably end up in rolled up Seven for all Mankind jeans, a black Levis t-shirt and Converse - plus a black parka shaped raincoat.

tierraJ Sun 28-Jul-19 10:16:58

Wow love that dress small

ImogenTubbs Sun 28-Jul-19 10:20:43

NottonightJosepheen Sun 28-Jul-19 10:31:11

Just found new thread. Amazing dress, small!

Today: God, I am so predictable. I have become totally into white or cream clothes. So practical for laundry purposes to just wear all my light coloured clothes all the time, no thinking about it...

Top: Phase 8
Suede skirt: Ralph Lauren
Shoes: Sweedish Hasbeens for h and m.

Forgive mess, sorting clothes after hols.

Racheyg Mon 29-Jul-19 09:26:33

Morning all,
I'm wearing a shirt dress with a stripy pattern from never fully dressed with Alexander McQueen runway trainers.

Josepheen - love the trouser outfit; my favourite of all of your white outfits!

It's lovely and warm here today. I'm wearing a cotton gingham skirt from a charity shop and a black cotton vest from Warehouse. I look and feel like a fat old lady (because I am) but I'm lovely and cool.

CountFosco Mon 29-Jul-19 14:57:45

I'm feeling very old as have just been at a festival this weekend and all the "kids" were wearing clothes I worn as a teenager

Ha, I'm currently wrapped in a towel after getting back from a very soggy Deershed. Kids there were wearing wellies and waterproofs.

Ellapaella Mon 29-Jul-19 15:04:15

NottonightJosepheen Tue 30-Jul-19 10:52:43

Thank you, RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie and Ellapaella. A fitted trousers in Summer is not my usual silhouette but your comments encouraged me. I think I will get away with wearing them again today. smile

I am wearing this hand crocheted top which I bought from a craft shop years ago. Actually, I wore it when I was pregnant with my nearly 14 yo son. shock It is loose fitting, still in perfect nick!
PaulHollywoodsleftbollockhair Yeah, I have said here before that when Summer comes, I automatically channel Esmeralda, lol. I love clogs and cheesecloth too!
