Joanne's summery outfit from New Look and Dunnes!

Yesterday Joanne and I got to be part of something very exciting indeed.  But annoyingly, it's something we can't talk about yet, but we'll fill you in when we can!  An exciting thing like this calls for panic buying and I stepped in for Joanne like the good sister/personal shopper I am.

Joanne has so many clothes, she could open her own shop and yet was freaking out that she had nothing to wear to something that would be outside and where a BBQ would be involved.  Cut to me running to our local New Look in Northside shopping centre, which is now a sale shop if anyone lives close to it.  I picked her up a dress that I'll show you in a sec but ah look at us here in the sunshine.

So we didn't know for sure what the weather was going to be like, so I was hoping to find Joanne a maxi dress (even though she has eleventy million at home).  I found this one and after mailing a quick photo to her, she said to get it and hope they did refunds just in case.  But I knew she'd love it.  She bought the little denim jacket in Dunnes for €20 and with the dress only being €13, it was a proper bargainous outfit so it was.

The maxi dress comes with a little belt attached and has an elastic band at the top to prevent one's diddies from falling out.  The fabric is floaty, flowy and perfect for a spot of dining outside or a walk on one's holliers.

I loved the floral design as soon as I saw it and thought it was the perfect summery maxi guna!

Of course, one needs a bag for all of one's needs and this one is from Lucky Brand, a brand Joanne and I fell in love with years ago in New York.

In case it got a bit cold (which it did slightly in the shade), Joanne bought this cropped denim jacket in Dunnes which worked well with the dress and was comfy.

And voila!  A lovely casual summery outfit!

The maxi dress was on sale so mightn't be in shops now, but this one is very similar, as is this one.

Doesn't Joanne look purty?
