Maxi dresses as I will have a bump. TBH I hate linen trousers, they crease and more often than not are see through. I just don't find them flattering at all.

My mam got E and J some great bargains in Matalan last night.
T-shirts for £2 - £3.
2 pack of swimming shorts for £7
Vests 2 for £8.
I wear decent linen trousers in the summer (hate cheap see through ones) with a vest, I don't like cheap vest though, I like to get mine from M&S, Next or DP's so they don't go out of shape after a few washes.
For pottering around I have a couple of pairs of denim shorts a bit like this that I wear with a vest and sandals
Skirts and a vest or shorts and a vest. This is only when its scorching which isn't very often up here.

sorry LP, I meant if you aren't pregnant as I'm not think its the first summer in a while I haven't been (or just had a baby) so want to know what non pregnant people will be wearing iyswim.

Linen trousers are still in the shops. Also all these chinos in bright colours are everywhere.
I've bought linen mix trousers in previous years - they crease less than pure linen.
I always see gorgeous dresses in linen in the summer but know I'd just look so dreadful in them. Some women are elegant enough to get away with the creases. I just look like I couldn't be bothered.
I must try on some of my summer trousers and skirts and see what they look like. Like you, CP, I've lost weight so some things don't fit anymore. But I'm aiming to lose some more so don't want to spend too much at the moment.

I like shorts with vests for day to day.
I still wear linens but not often and only for a couple of hours!
I like the bright or pastel jeans
Maxi dresses too!

Urgh I hate linen trousers.
I'll be mainly in shorts or playsuits when not at work. www.hm.com/.../09592 www.hm.com/.../09872

I used to wear linen trousers but haven't for the last couple of years. I'll be wearing different coloured skinny jeans with t-shirts/vests, I've got a couple of nice dresses from last summer, I'll probably wear tunic tops with leggings too.

I've got some dresses this year, long maxi ones which come to the floor, i'm hoping to be able to get them out if the weather is good enough.
Holiday wise, i've got a couple of pairs of longer demin shorts, which i plan on wearing with vest tops, i don't do skirts.
Shoes i can't wait to get my birkies out again, they're on their 3rd year and still looking great.
I got some bargain bits for S in Asda last night for summer, some cute short/top combos.
