Looking back at my holiday pictures is making me wish I had a beach in my back garden, especially in this weather! Whilst I spent most of the time I was away in various combinations of shorts and a t-shirt, on a few occasions I had the chance to get a little bit more dressed up- here's a look at one of the outfits which I wore towards the end of my first week away:

Dress- c/o Clothing at Tesco
Bag- c/o Forever 21
Sandals- Faith (via Debenhams)
Necklace- Whistles
Watch- Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses- Marks and Spencer

I picked up this dress using a voucher I received when I popped along to the Clothing at Tesco AW12 press day, and it proved the ideal thing to pop in my suitcase. It's from a brand called Influence which is stocked on the Clothing at Tesco website- well worth having a look if you're after some summer pieces which won't break the bank (especially as they're having a sale at the moment!) Up until now, I've been quite wary of anything midi-length, but now I'm a true convert. It's a classic, sophisticated style which is really easy to wear, so I'm sure I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for similar pieces from now on. It goes without saying that I love the polka dots too! Teamed with a lovely little clutch bag from Forever 21, my Whistles necklace and my favourite sandals from Faith, this is a warm weather outfit which I can't wait to wear again.

What are your summer wardrobe essentials?
