As things warm up, we're planning our summer getaways and getting ready to bask in the sunshine. For everything between sandy-toed days out by the beach and weekend BBQs, the fifties inspired sundress has endless appeal.

Kayla from blog Gracefully Vintage couldn't resist the classic stripes and nautical feel of the Pippa Blue Stripe Dress and we can't blame her. Come rain or shine, it's a go-to. EmilyAndFin-GracefullyVintage-PippaDress "A couple of weekends ago I went to a local boot sale with my dad, I bought a few vintage sewing patterns and then we had fish & chips at the beach. I wore this summery outfit and even though it did rain on and off it was rather warm." EmilyAndFin-GracefullyVintage-PippaDress "Emily and Fin┬áhas become one of my favourite brands the past couple of years and I always look forward to seeing what designs are on offer each season. Living in Australia I can't go past a trusty sundress and this lightweight cotton dress is perfect for summer." EmilyAndFin-GracefullyVintage-PippaDress "The Pippa dress also has pockets which is always a good thing! This brand also has some really lovely rayon fabric dresses another favourite fabric of mine to wear during spring and summer."
