Although were in mid April I haven’t really added too many Spring/Summer pieces to my wardrobe simply because of the weather (did you see the fog the other morning) but last week I was doing some online browsing & came across this dress from Warehouse that I featured as my ‘I Want’ on the latest ‘Weekend Reading List.’
Now I’m a girls girl & love a pretty dress, I would always rather pick up a dress than a top & trousers so this one immediately caught my eye. I loved the pattern & colour but looking online didn’t know how the peach would look once on, would it wash me out? Perfect for taking on holiday with a tan but would I wear it at home, so the best thing to do was try it on & see for myself.
A morning spent shopping with my Mum our last stop was Warehouse, I tried on the dress & loved it, it was so much better off the hanger, I was super happy. The dress certainly didn’t stay in my wardrobe long & shortly came out for dinner to celebrate my brother’s birthday.
It was a lovely sunny day so ideal for wearing this dress, going for dinner & cocktails it was perfect for the occasion. Teamed together with chunky suede shoes from Warehouse that I loved once I put them with the dress, it was rude to leave them in the store especially as they finished the outfit. The burnt orange colour complements the dress & will get plenty of wear this Summer.
The dress is 100% silk so yes so you do have to be careful because silk does crease but I felt comfortable & not conscious that it was clinging to me. It was the perfect dress for a day & night out, whether it’s teamed with sandals on holiday or high heels for a night out it’s an all round perfect dress for Summer. AA x
