Dresses! my pick of the new season day dresses…..

It all started yesterday I tried a Whistles dress that was too big for me but I knew the potential was huge. I did eventually find my size on line and I cannot wait to try it (the shoe possibilities are interesting).

This however piqued my interest and I decided that my work wardrobe needs a refresh and I love wearing dresses that I can team with ankle boots, sneakers or pretty shoes.

The dress that started the search

Whistles Scarf Print Dress was £169 now £80 here

This dress is much longer on me and I would style it differently! I am thinking my yellow Gucci loafers will look very cool.

My go to brands for dresses is always Whistles or Isabel Marant and this one is perfect.

Isabel Marant Etoile Vicky lace trimmed cotton dress £395 here

This dress by M.i.h is beautiful and I think that a tan is required but it is simply gorgeous.

M.i.h Jeans Kirby Dress £375 here

I actually sold this one yesterday to a personal shopping client and it looked beautiful.

Whistles Cynthia tie waist dress £139 here

A midi dress is always a good option for me and this one from Other Stories comes in two great colours.

Other Stories Heart Print Midi Dress £69 here








When it comes to dresses the french brands always seem to get it right and this one by Sandro is beautiful.

Sandro Silk Dress £207 here

I do love MO&CO and this dress doesn’t disappoint.

MO&CO floral silk georgette dress was £210 now £63 here

I will finish with a dress that I have just fallen for and it comes in three different colour ways.

These two are available on www.mytheresa.com

Ganni Marceau georgette dress £140 here








and this is navy blue (just perfect)

Ganni Marceau georgette dress £168 here


Take one Isabel Marant dress, slides and two pairs of boots…….

I do love an Isabel Marant dress I can always do so much with them just by changing the shoes. This dress has had me thinking (a lot for a long time) about different shoes in different locations, I am thinking Lima Dreaming and winter in Manchester.

These would be my favourite combinations:

Isabel Marant Lyon cotton voile mini dress £335 here

For work (personal shopping) pretty and comfortable.

Zara over the knee boots £59.99 here

Lima Dreaming in the sunshine with a cool pair of slides.

Isabel Marant Hellea Metallic Slides £295 here

I always need a cool pair of ankle boots (this would involve fake tan and a warm coat). In reality either my suede or snake effect Isabel Marant Danae boots would work perfectly but check this python pair I spotted today!

Isabel Marant Danae printed python boots £655 here 




10 very good reasons to visit Uterque today …

There are so many pieces that you need from Uterque at the moment. I do wish there was a store to wander around at lunch time..

I have been on the search for a skirt to wear to work (personal shopping) with either ankle boots or pumps. This fuchsia pink ruffled skirt is just gorgeous and I would wear with one of many Whistles slogan tees!

Fuchsia Skirt £75 here 

This printed dress is perfect for work and it would work with ankle boots now and over the knee when it gets colder.

Flowing print dress £145 here

This is an outfit that I would a lot, flared trousers with a bardot top, the shoe options are many! (I do love shoe options)

Off the shoulder poplin top £75 here

Frilled Hem Trousers £95 here

There are so many shoes options at Uterque that I just featured a few.

Low Heel Studded Shoes £115 here

These shoes are just wow and I would wear them with cropped jeans or a simple dress.

Blue Studded Slingbacks £115 here

Leather Pumps with Embellished Bow £115 here

These would get so much wear teamed with culottes for work.

Elastic Suede Ankle Boots £145 here

Bejewelled Slides £115 here

These are my absolute favourites, I do love a pair of pretty slides.

This could be my Lima Dreaming bag as the colour is just perfect for sunny South American days.

Maxi Leather Cross Body Bag £125 here

Just loving Isabel Marant Lyin Cotton Ruffle Dress……

I see me in this dress with a great pair of ankle boots (Isabel Marant Danae boots) to give it an edge. It is a very cute dress so on me it would need the attitude only ankle boots can bring!

Isabel Marant Etoile Lyin ruffle dress £335 here


Must have item of the day it’s pink and it’s frilly…………..

I do love shirts with frills and cuff details at the moment and this one certainly ticks all of the boxes. Pink is an unusual colour for me as in it isn’t blue, but I am more than willing to give it a try.

Zara Frilled Top £29.99 here
