I have been on a dress hunt recently because I wanted a few more dresses for city wear, as opposed to the many floaty dresses I have that I am more comfortable with wearing during a holiday. And I actually made a few great purchases in the ‘going to be wearing these for years to come’ category plus there are a few more on their way as we speak. I have sent loads back to be honest, so while my ordering may seem out of control I actually only end up with the ones I am really confident about.
There are two people to blame for this out of character purchase: Brittany Bathgate and Alexis Foreman. They both wore this exact same dress so wonderfully on their Instagram (and without the belt as well: so good!) I had no choice but to succumb and try it myself. And I must say, it is not only ‘just in’ but also a keeper.
I have not bought a high heel in ages, I prefer to walk the earth on flats these days, but these delicate pink beauties may convert me once again.
I am always a sucker for a light blue dress.
These are absolutely perfect: very lightweight, a good camel colour (I find so many camel trousers simply too ‘beige’) and the right amount of ‘wide leg’. I have ordered them and tried them on, despite my ‘no spending in May’ rule, and they are a keeper: at 20 euro these really are a budget find and so perfect for summer.
Perfect top for a casual night out: no jewellery necessary due to the added bling. I would wear it with denim as well but with a strappy black heel.
In case anyone ever wondered if I actually buy any of the stuff I show here, the answer is ‘Oh yes.’ My parcel delivery guy can also attest to that (we are on a first name basis *cough*). And since I have come to loathe shopping in town I almost always resort to online shopping. Nothing beats trying on clothes in the comfort of my own dressing room (I mean come on Zara, what is with the preposterous long queues?) and the ability to match outfits on the spot in pleasant lighting.
