Spots and stripes

A couple of recent dress purchases to show you. My outfits feel a bit dull this week, I need to get some colour going on. The weather is just so 'meh' at the moment, I feel like I want to hibernate. Comfort has been the key.

I've just placed a massive order for dresses for my holiday (I'm supposed to be on a spending ban), if they arrive soon I can play dress up and inject a bit more excitement into my blog. I quite like seeing every day outfits on blogs, but tell me if I am boring you to death with the dullness of this week!

So, I bought this spotty dress with my Dorothy Perkins gift card. I loved it on the website, not sure I totally love it on me. Maybe I will wear it with a few more colours next time. Still it was quite bargainous for £18.

Black Jeggings (22) - Evans
Jersey Cardigan (18) - Matalan
Red ballet Flats - New Look

This second dress I'd been eyeing up on the ASOS website for an age. I ordered when it was in the sale, pretty certain I'd never wear it as a dress but I've been after a long striped vest for a while. This is long though (much longer than it looks on the website), so I've had to roll it up a bit and its definitely cream and not white as it appears. I'm a fan though.

  1. I love the spotty dress on you and it looks good with the red shoes. I can't belive the striped one is a dress! Maybe it's just me, but I think dresses shouldn't be too high above the knee? Do I sound like a nun saying that?! LOL. I love it worn as a tunic like you have, though. I used to have something similar. I'm still in love with the nails xx
