a couple of gems!

A short & sweet post from me just to share a couple of fab High Street finds. As the sun has been shining this week my thoughts have turned to finding a few new dresses to bolster my collection (a couple have been culled in a recent clearout). I had a lot of success in New Look last summer so that was my first port of call! I can report that 2 out of the 5 I ordered have made it into my wardrobe. I wore a gingham midi dress (similar here) to work on Friday that was from New Look last year and I love the shape so I went in search of something similar......and was not disappointed!

In my opinion the dress is true to size (I'm a size 10 and this is spot on!). I love the fact that it sweeps the floor....it means I can wear with a heel as well!

Blue Vanilla dress, also available at Debenhams (reduced price!) & Dorothy Perkins

Next up is another print - we all love a bit of animal print don't we?! As this is a belted shirt dress it sits firmly in the day dress category for me, though again it can be dressed up with a heel. I, however prefer it with my Stan's and shall be wearing with a leather biker or denim jacket.

I'm still on the hunt for dresses and another of my favourite High Street retailers has some more beauties that I am currently researching....back in a day or 2 to report on those.

In case you are missing my usual outfit round-up you can now find it here.
