The best summer dresses to enjoy the glorious Irish sunshine in

The eternal sunshine of a gorgeous summer dress.

The best summer dresses to enjoy the glorious Irish sunshine in

Harper Lee once said that “summer was a thousand colors in a parched landscape”. For me, summer will always be long evenings and bare feet. Tanned limbs, freckled faces, and salty lashes. Ice-cream and barbeques and everything good to eat. Mostly though, summer is about the fabulous flowing dresses I live my favourite season in.  

Dressing for the weather can be an arduous task… but it doesn’t have to be. Light fabrics, colourful prints, and loose-fitting silhouettes – follow these three rules of thumb and the battle is almost already won.
