I’ve worn this shirt dress to a meeting, to a cocktail party and to travel in. It’s a go-anywhere, do-everything style that is both wafty and smart and doesn’t wilt in a heatwave. Result. The DKNY cotton poplin shirt dress cost more than I would normally spend on a frock but it’s incredibly versatile, the longer hemline at the back covers my varicose veins and this style works equally well with sandals. In fact, I was wearing mine with flat sandals to travel in and received a lovely compliment from a reader who spotted me in Athens airport. I just hope that this was before Mr TNMA realised he’d left his reading glasses in the front pocket of an EasyJet plane and we legged it through the airport in a mad panic. Still waiting to hear…In a topsy-turvy twist, it was so hot when we left London the heat on the tarmac before boarding at Heathrow was hotter than when we disembarked in Athens. Fancy that.
Oh and I’ve received a couple of messages about problems with my RSS feed sending blog posts as a digested list, this is something I’m looking into. Thanks for letting me know.
