Outfit: Dubai inspiration

I'll be away on a house hunting trip next week and the thought of 25°C (77°F) weather is getting me very excited! I've been living in leggings, cardigans, coats and boots for a while now, it's nice to look forward to some maxi dresses and sandals. Although we do have summer in the UK, it isn't quite like summer anywhere else. If we're lucky, we get a good week of sunshine. Otherwise, it's wet, gray and cold.

Since I can't stop thinking about outfits, I decided to create a few. I've recently discovered the ease of doing so via Polyvore (I know, I'm late to the party again). Bearing in mind that it is the Middle East after all (I know Dubai is very modern and has a huge expat population but I still want to be respectful of the culture), I've come up with a few options that allow me to embrace summer clothes without exposing too much.
