The count down to my summer holiday has now begun and I'm itching to get packing my suitcase. But first things first I need clothes to fill it.

I don't have a lot of day time dresses due to the unpredictable Belfast weather, I play it safe with jeans. So for this month I want to invest in a few that I can take with me but also that I can wear when I'm home.

I popped into New Look because i'd seen some pretty 2 in 1 dresses on their website. Unfortunately they didn't have any left or there wasn't any in my size but as I made my way out down the store towards the exit I came across a boutique brand i've never heard of.

You! They had a small collection of dresses but one in particular caught my eye.

Its a strapless dress which ends above the knee. It also has a cinched waist to add some shape. I will probably cover the seam with a tan belt to define my waist that little bit more.

The dress is grey with lilac, purple and magenta flowers all over it. There are also buttons at the bust which is slightly a love-heart shape.

I plan to wear this with sandals on holiday and whilst at home I will team it with tights or leggings, flats and a cardigan.

Please leave any suggestions where I might find nice "summery" dresses.
