Beat The Heat! – Beach Dress or Day Dress In The Heatwave!

Today is the first cooler day in a while! How are you all bearing up? I’ve really enjoyed the weather, it’s just the night times that I feel have been hard to deal with. The UK hasn’t had a heatwave like this for years and there’s a lot more to come yet apparently!

This is the last post from my holiday in Malta. I thought it was very apt for our heatwave!

 

Today is the first cooler day in a while! How are you all bearing up? I've really enjoyed the weather, it's just the night times that I feel have been hard to deal with. The UK hasn't had a heatwave like this for years!

 

I feel in love with the bright bold colours in this Bonmarche beach dress. I say beach dress, I think it’s more like a normal dress. Not see through at all and I have worn it with a short-sleeved T-shirt too.

Light as a feather to wear, with adjustable straps, and that’s a bonus point to me because I don’t like anything too low cut.

Bonmarche always have some lovely holiday items, and I will just say ladies that the swimsuit I have from Bonmarche is one of the best flattering suits I’ve ever had. I will leave a pic below for you. The tummy control is excellent!

A V front and back and a cute floaty hem, this was perfect to walk back to the hotel in. I didn’t feel underdressed at all.

 

It’s hard to believe that it’s been hotter here in the UK that it was on my holiday!

 

 

What have you been wearing indoors in this heat? The lightest item possible? I’ve been wearing this dress and my kaftans. Anything non-restrictive!

 

 

I love the floaty handkerchief hem on the dress and the bold colours in the stripes.

 

 

The hat I had to buy in Malta because I forgot to pack mine! There’s always something forgotten! I was really happy with it though because this one actually fits quite well and I can tie any scarf around it. I’ve been wearing it a lot whilst fishing on the Thames trying to preserve the hair colour from the sun!

I totally recommend these figure-flattering swimsuits

 

 

Here’s the photo of the swimsuit from my Instagram (find me here) And if you haven’t tried a Bonmarche swimsuit on I can’t recommend them enough. This one is a few years old now but there are some lovely ones on the website.

    How fun is that asymmetric colorful striped dress. The floppy hat makes it the perfect Summer outfit, Laurie. Looking so polished as usual!

    What a pretty dress, Laurie! It looks lovely on a holiday. #pocolo

  56. July 13, 2018 / 1:10 pm

    I prefer to wear a tankini with shorts as bottoms. I wear dresses all the time in Dubai, but struggle to find the right bra so it doesn’t show through the clothing #pocolo

  57. July 13, 2018 / 6:42 am

    What a perfect summer dress Laurie, I think I have one in very similar style and love it. Love the swimsuit, you look gorgeous in it

  58. July 13, 2018 / 6:27 am

    Great dress, great swimsuit, great photos. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party

  59. July 12, 2018 / 11:44 pm

    That dress looks like the perfect thing to wear in this heat wave! I also have been in floaty dresses, the lighter the better. I love the linen mix shift dresses from Next, so easy and cool.

    I can just imagine how cool that dress must feel. Perfect for the amazing temps we’ve been having back home. I forgot to pack a hat too – any excuse for shopping eh?! Hugs, x.

  62. July 12, 2018 / 10:03 pm

    I love the colours of the dress! Don’t you just love this summer! I do!

    Such a great dress! You look amazing.

  64. July 12, 2018 / 7:12 pm

    What a fabulous dress, Laurie! I am totally in love! The chevron print is so flattering and the colours are fantastic. Even though are styles are different, I’d wear this in a heartbeat. In fact, it reminds me of a vintage sundress I have stashed away somewhere. I must dig it out and show it on the blog! xxx

  65. July 12, 2018 / 7:05 pm

    I love that Hat Laurie !

    Absolutely love your dress Laurie! I loved to hear you fish in the Thames. I can imagine looking super stylish – would make a great blog post..! xxx

    Wow Laurie, I don’t think there’s anything you can’t wear! You look super in both your outfits. Nice to have a bit of cooler weather, but I wan the sunshine back soon! Jacqui Mumabstylish

    Hello Laurie! I love your outfit so much. Especially the shoes look so so great!

    lots of love, Miri

    Lovely floaty dress! I’ve been wearing loose-fitting dresses too – it’s felt a bit odd wearing my holiday clothes at home!
