I could get used to island life. Waking at sunrise; eating fresh and exotic fruit for breakfast; swimming half the day away; exploring jungles, beaches and cliffs; falling asleep to the cheerful sounds of birds, lizards, frogs, crickets. For all this, you need nothing more than a simple dress to slip in and out of as you dip in and out of the pool or ocean.
This crocheted dress from Topshop wasn't the easiest item to get hold of. I hunted it down on eBay a few years ago after missing out on purchasing it in store, and with the winning bid, was so looking forward to it being mine. Then, something went wrong and the seller informed me that it was no longer available, much to my chagrin. Luckily for me, it cropped up on eBay again a week or two later, and I won that bidding war too until finally, it was safely in my hands.
Obviously this is no longer available, but if you're into the whole crochet beach dress look, here are some of my current favourites:
