This fab €43 River Island dress is my new favourite summer outfit

My new favourite summer outfit is this gorgeous €43 River Island dress.

The sun made a brief appearance this week and everyone went for it as is commonplace in Ireland when the weather is good.

Dresses and shorts were reintroduced from the back of the wardrobe, BBQ season kicked off around the country and the first 99s of the season were consumed.

Although the grey and dreary sky has since made a return, we're not about to give up on summer just yet and this €43 River Island dress is getting us very excited for the warmer weather to come.

Stripes never go out of fashion, we adore the cream and black combination and the tie-detail is just so pretty.

This is one piece I definitely plan on bringing on summer holidays and with any luck, we'll see temperatures rising at home too.

The 'cream stripe tie back slip dress' is currently available in all sizes but we don't see it hanging around for too long as is often the case with must-have pieces.

We love how it's been styled here with layered gold jewellery and if you added a pair of espadrilles, you'd have the perfect stylish summer ensemble.

You'll have it for many seasons to come as the pattern never dates and that's reason enough to purchase.

As you might have noticed, summer dresses are everywhere at the moment and picking up a couple of printed pieces is a very easy way to instantly update your summer look.

We also adore this cream version as modelled by River Island assistant Holly, just gorgeous!
