Leave it to Holly Willoughby to make the most of her Easter break by seeking out the ideal summer outfit whilst she’s been off. She may have been away from our screens for the Easter holidays, but that hasn’t stopped the TV presenter for being the inspiration for the perfect special occasion dress and heels for under £80.

Taking to Instagram to share her latest bargain find with fans, the 41-year-old This Morning host revealed she “couldn’t resist” adding the floral midi dress to her basket.

“If it includes wearing a summer dress, my answer is always yes!” the TV host wrote on Instagram. “I couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous dress from @marksandspencer to my spring/summer wardrobe.”

“With a fresh floral print, it’s perfect for the long sunny weekend,” she added. “Who else is blooming excited about this weather?”

The fresh blue floral print lends a feminine feel to the elegant midi dress, without it feeling too ditsy; ideal for those who might not want to dive into the deep end with patterns, and veteran floral wearers alike.

It is cut to a flattering fit that highlights the silhouette without being too tight, making it perfect for summer occasions. It features a button-through fastening and an open v-neck with a collar for an authentic shirt-style look, and a waist-tie offers additional shaping.

The Floral Button Through Midi Shirt Dress is available in two lengths – regular and long – and in sizes 6-24 in both lengths, all for £45. Given the amount of wear a buyer would get out of the floral number, I would say that’s a solid cost-per-wear investment.

Holly can also be seen wearing a pair of sand-coloured espadrille wedges in the Instagram picture; an ideal summer style often coveted by the Duchess of Cambridge for summer events.

The stylish Ankle Strap Wedge Espadrilles are a comfortable, yet chic option for any summer occasion; from christenings to the races, weddings to birthday parties, they should keep the wearer comfortable all day (and night) long.

Holly wears the oatmeal shade but they are also available in blue and range from sizes 3-8. What's more, they are only £29.50, meaning Holly's entire outfit comes in at a reasonable £74.50.
