Doesn't this look like a fun way to spend a summer afternoon? Dangling your bare feet into cool, fresh water and munching on watermelon with your girlfriends? It sounds perfect to me. And the perfect thing to wear on such a perfect afternoon would be sweet, simple frocks like these.
Sometimes it seems like girls in the UK have all the good shops. There's Topshop and Toast and Whistles and Cabbages and Roses. Perhaps some of these shops aren't quite as nice as I've made them out in my head, but I can't imagine Cabbages and Roses being a disappointment. At least not as far as their offerings for this spring are concerned. They have the perfect little dresses and tops for lounging around on a sweltering summer afternoon. A little stroll through their online shop also revealed the likes of housewares, stationery and if you're feeling particularly crafty, a selection of fabrics from which to make you own summer wardrobe. I admit that at times they veer a little too much into "shabby chic" territory for my taste, but used sparingly I think their pieces could be just the cure when the summer gets so hot we'll be longing for cool fall days once again.
