In December last year, I remember thinking just how average the Summer was that we were having.
Cut to December 2015 and Adelaide has definitely upped the ante.

Most days you can count on the sun to do its thing and turn up the heat to the extremes.

What does one wear on a sweltering Summer’s day? To me the answer is always a dress. Actually to be honest, whatever the weather, I usually reach for a dress.

It must be loose, it must be flowy and it must make me smile.

Enter the kaftan, no longer just for retired ladies and gents playing lawn bowls in down town California.

I have long been a fan of the Kaftan for the easy wear factor and its ability to be dressed up or down.

I spotted this one online at Blue Bungalow and it was on its way to me within 10 minutes.
Even better, it was at my door step within 24 hours. I love that, I’m so impatient waiting for online purchases to arrive, I just want all the things now!

I’ve worn this dress twice in the few short days I’ve had it in my hot little hands and each time it’s been perfect, it’s like wearing comfy pyjamas but still look acceptable to wear out in public.

I also love the cold shoulder action that is going on, the best bit is the slightly wider straps, I can get away with wearing my normal everyday bra and the straps are still hidden. Winning my friends, winning.

Size wise, it’s a one size fits all so depending on your size will obviously affect how loose/tight it is.

Here I have just added some simple accessories and sandals. I don’t know about you but I can’t stand too much jewellery when the temperature starts to rise. I do love some bling but on a 40 degree day? Forget it.

My cotton on aviator sunglasses are enough for me, such a bargain at $15 a pair!

What about you, what’s your go to summer staple?
