Happy Friday everyone! Is it me or has this week just flown by?! Cycling to work in the sunshine and spending lunch times relaxing in the park just makes the working week a whole lot better don’t you think?
So I was having a little procrastination time at work and as usual browsed through some of my favourite clothing websites to see what’s about. Yes yes I’m trying to save money for my soon to be adventures but there is no harm in a little window/screen shopping 😉 I thought I would share five items that I am just loving at the moment.
This has been sitting in my saved items tab for a couple of weeks now. Sadly it seems to be out of stock…dammit! But you never know when ASOS might bring more in. I really love the vintage esque style with the small pleats below the bust line and the gorgeous button detailing down the front. It actually reminds me of a dress my mum used to wear when I was little.
You can’t go wrong with this kind of floral pattern. It’s sparse so it doesn’t make the long dress too busy and distract you from the detailing. I would, like in the photo, team this with a long pendant necklace but maybe go for a sandal style heel rather than these cowboy ankle boots. You could definitely convert this into a wintery dress with an over sized chunky knit cardigan and heeled boots. It was £55 when it was in stock. Lets hope they bring this back in.
Now I am a big fan of the skater style dress. I don’t have the biggest of busts and am quite bony along the chest so I often prefer tops and dresses that come up around the neck. I always prefer keeping my chest covered and show a bit of leg instead. This is from Missguided and is a bargain at only £14.99. They have teamed it with this perfect minimalist leather waist belt just to break up the pattern over the dress and accentuate the waist. I’m also loving this black Fedora hat (£12.99), it completes the look of the outfit nicely. Really tempted to get this! Again it can be transformed into a winter dress with tights, a black or bright coloured jumper and heeled ankle boots. No…must resist!!!
This is a little out of my price range at £88 for a causal dress but it’s still a good’un for the wishlist. Maybe if I win the euromillions tonight ay?! How gorgeous is the back and the subtle ruching under the bust. My third floral piece for this post. You can tell I’m really loving the floral at the moment! With floral it comes in so many styles and colours it can just make a plain navy dress go from “ooo I like the style” to “ok I really would love to be wearing that right now” The colours of these flowers just pop out of this dress. I like the combination of this girly style with the biker boots. This is new in for ASOS, nice work guys and girls!
Ok ok so this isn’t a frock…unless its a really really really short one?! No? ok I thought I would mix it up a little with some tops on this weeks wishlist as well. I received an email from H&M this morning announcing their new stock and this called to me. It’s simplistic, minimalist but bold with the small yellow insert. You could wear this for smart occasions or throw it on with a pair of denim shorts for a picnic in the park. This is also a bargain at £14.99. I am tempted to purchase this as when hanging the washing out to dry the other day I noticed all my tops seem to be black, white or grey. Yeah this combines two of those colours but the yellow just makes it a little more summery.
There I go again with another floral piece. Look at this gorgeous colour though. My favourite colour! I originally wanted a dress from Oasis that was in this pattern for a wedding I was going to. I waited for ages for it to come in store but when it finally did, it just wasn’t very flattering in the end. This has just come in and I’m intrigued to see what it’s like on. No greasy food whilst wearing this though. It says it’s cotton, but you can see a sheen to it so I bet getting marks out of it would be tricky. I have a bad habit of getting food down new clothing, like a magnet ha ha! This is currently £32
Well there is my little Friday Frock (and a few tops) wishlist. Hope you’ve enjoyed 🙂 I’ve included the links in the titles if you want to have a little screen shop yourself.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’m off to a black tie charity ball this Saturday so I’m super excited about that.
I will try to get a few photos and blog about it soon. I have a few posts that I need to catch up on so stay tuned.
