Phase Eight is one of my favourite shops for when I need a frock. As we were staying in a posh hotel I figured I could get away with dressing up a bit, so I chose this nautical stripe from this summer’s online sale. The dress is jersey, but lined, so it gives you a bit of structure. It’s also flattering for big boobs and the folds at the waist draw attention from a big tummy.
The jacket is an old favourite from M&S which pulls together pretty much any outfit for when you want to smarten up.
The silver leather clutch is from a boutique in Mallorca and is great for travelling as it packs flat and goes with anything.
