Ah the midi dress. A mum holy grail garment.  We don't know about you but our wardrobes are full of them. Floral, strappy, long sleeves, black - you name it.

Why? It's simple. It makes getting dressed and looking 'ready' so much easier. Just slip on your trusty midi and your look is complete. Add a jumper to see you through the colder months or add a pair of strappy heels for a grown-up going out look.
