The incredible shrinking “Lorelai” dresses

I don’t know what happened to H&M’s basics dresses this year. Last year they cost £7.99 apiece and are still going strong! This year they cost between, £12.99 and £14.99 and they came up shorter to start with and then proceeded to shrink in size. Clearly this was very unhelpful.

Honestly I am sad about this dress, I am in love with the colour khaki at the moment (and let’s be honest, who isn’t? – have you seen the highstreet? It’s saturated!) and yet this dress makes me antsy. Is it too short? Has it rolled up? Can this guy see that I am in fact wearing grey cycle shorts under this get up?

It’s an ongoing drama which quite honestly takes away from the purpose of a dress which would cover you and allow you an easy and freeing summer. It’s even worse with a capsule wardrobe because you know what these clothes need to last you, they need to be somewhat of an investment and I feel a little let down by this dress to be honest. It’s also shown me that come Autumn what I want to look into is smart workwear, I want longer skirts and dresses, that are structured and stand out pieces. It’s my dream, whether or not that comes true however is another thing completely . . .

If you asked me a couple of weeks ago whether I would be wearing a playsuit this summer. I would have said no. Me? Never? But as it is I took a risk in Next one Saturday and somehow came home with a brand, spanking new playsuit.

Firstly it wasn’t even in the tall section so my hopes were not high at all but somehow it was long enough in the body, the pattern was cute and here we have it! The only downside of course is that it is a bit of a bother to get it off for bathroom breaks but other than that I see a great future for myself and this playsuit.

My first thought of course was the beach. What better to wear over your swimming costume than a beach styled onesie? talk about comfort! Then of course I extended it to time by the pool, garden parties? Then finally to date nights, the trifecta! The above I think will make a great date night outfit with the boy. Until that time however I have been wearing it around the house like PJ’s because that of course is totally normal!

Has anyone else found a great long bodied playsuit in the regular section? If so link it to me so we can share the love!
