yay! it's dress season at last!

Yesterday's outfit inspired this post....that coupled with a discount code! If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I that I was sporting  a denim pinafore from Topshop that I bought last Summer. Unfortunately they don't seem to have repeated the style this year but as luck would have it whilst doing a bit of dress research I've found something very similar at Warehouse who just happen to have 25% off all their dresses at the moment!



As soon as the temps rise I love to get the dresses out. They don't get that much wear from year to year so I keep dragging out a few golden oldies but I like to add a couple of newbies into the mix each summer. I appear to be having a bit of a shirt/midi dress moment going my 3 most recent purchases. With 25% off it would be rude not to check what else Warehouse has to offer at the moment wouldn't it!

This one looks so crisp and cool.....would look so superb with the  Office Dapper white loafers that are hardly off my feet!



I think this cami style top with midi skirt is so elegant.....absolutely gorgeous!



J'adore this printed version too!



A girl can never have too many stripes.....this one looks super flattering into the bargain.



Love the style of sleeve on this one after hankering after this J Crew top here.



Time to step away from the blues and look at different colourways me-thinks! Swooning over this beauty, perfect with the flat tan sandals.



Along a similar vein......



Ending with a very punchy red shirt dress......again I'm thinking this would perfect with my white loafers!!



I have a couple of sporting events to attend over the next few weeks so one or two of these beauties *may* have made it into my virtual basket! ;0) What I love about all of them is that they will easily take you from day through to evening....I need to be able to wear with flat shoes/sandals and denim jacket early on but be able to notch it up an outfit-wise later on in the day with a biker or blazer and some heels so I'm ready to party!

Are you a dress-lover in the summer? What's your prefered kind of outfit when the weather starts heating up.....I'm all ears! 

So now that I've had the excuse to get the dresses out, that's exactly what's been on the outfit agenda these past few days!

Not quite sure how long the Warehouse 25% off dresses promotion is on for so if there is something catching your eye I wouldn't hesitate to click that button....I'm off to place my order now! ;0)

Wishing everyone a lovely week.....I'll be back in a few days.

  4. There is something so exciting about pulling out your favorite summer dresses, when the temps heat up...as you say they don't get to see the light of day too often, so they almost feel like a new purchase!Michelle I absolutely LOVE your new Just Female dress, and that little Gap white dress is such a good one too! Let's hope the sun keeps on shining to wear all these lovely dresses!

  5. I love so many of these Warehouse dresses and want to order some. I was just wondering whether anyone knows about sizing. Is Warehouse generally true to size or on the small size?

    1. Hi Cas! On the whole I have always found Warehouse sizing to be spot on! In a dress I'm a 10, so I would order a 10! However.....hang fire as I'm off out to (hopefully, I say as I'm only going to a small concession in a store so they may not stock everything) try some of these on today! I shall report back later! :0) xx

    3. Hi again Cas! Just to confirm that will all the dresses I tried the my size 10 was spot on! I managed to try most of the ones I featured, if not very similar! I will do a follow-up post on my findings so you can either later today or tomorrow! :0)

    4. Thanks for the feedback. I am ordering so Australia where returns can be a bit tricky so it's always good to get some advice on sizes.

    1. Thank you Lorraine! The JF is the perfect style for me to take from day to evening as we don't tend to go anywhere that dressy these days!! I already feel that the Office loafers have paid for themselves, I really didn't realise quite how much they would go with! Glad to be of service....I'm thrilled you love them as much as I do! xx
