On really hot humid days there’s only one thing that works for me, roomy light airy dresses, whether it’s in “beach-land” or in the concrete jungle. This little budget cutie from Asos works just as well on those days and looks great with boots and knitted cardigans when cooler days come, but lets hope they stay away a long time shall we?

Smock dress from Asos, ballerinas by Lanvin, sunnies by Acne, bag by Celine and jewellery by Hermes, Monica Vinader, De Beers and Balenciaga.

    Looks like a crazy comfy dress to me! And the sunnies are great as well, if you ask me they add the perfect amount of fun to this simple budget find..

    I really like your style… even if I think here: Dress is not working for you! Too wide, short… sorry…
    But I fully understand, at some days you need something really comfortable! same here!
    Enjoy the summer days!

    Looks lovely! Which size are you wearing and how tall are you? Usually everything is too short on myself but this one could be ok for hot summer/vacation days…

    I find the dress cute, but IMO it does not work for you.Your outfits are usually more flattery…

    Manuela and May!
    I’m 173.5 cm and got mine in my regular size UK 8.
    I’ve tried other of these smock dresses from Asos and some of them come very short, but this one’s ok (perhaps not on a very windy day!).
    Hope this is of any help!
