Outfit and Haul | It's Officially Summertime!

What gorgeous sunny weather we've been having in the UK the last few days! Such a great start to British Summertime. Unfortunately I've not been able to go outside to enjoy it over the weekend as I've been pretty immobile, but it's been nice to lie under my fan looking at the blue sky watching my LOST and Sex and the City boxsets.

I've made a couple of cheeky purchases this weekend. I know I should be watching my spending as money is tight since I'm not able to work right now, but I couldn't resist.

I snapped up this lovely coral-pink saddle bag in Accessorize's sale. I'd been lusting after it since New Year, and couldn't resist it at £11 instead of £22. I hope it gets here soon! I think it'll look great with so many of my clothes over spring and summer.

I also found a gorgeous navy polka-dot midi-dress online on Dorothy Perkins. Now I must explain to you that I have a slight obsession with polka dots, and with dresses, too, so this dress just called out to me as I browsed. I do like a longer length, as I think they're more flattering on my legs than ones that rest mid-thigh. I can't wait to try it on and accessorize it!

I also chose this cute toucan t-shirt. I don't own many t-shirts anymore, but I think this will work well with my coral jeans, and with a lot of my other clothes, too.

Cute, right? I'll let you know how they both look on. I should also mention I really love Dorothy Perkins. They're so on trend at the moment, and I know that their clothes will fit my shape well. Whenever I shop online or go in store I can always find something I like and want to buy. They're definitely my favourite clothes shop on the high street right now.

Today I wore this Dorothy Perkins tea dress with teal tights (until I got too hot and took the tights off). I love the design and the shape of the dress, although it does get static so i think i might try it with an underskirt. It also has frills around the chest area, which make the area look wider than it actually is. If I could work out how to sew them flat i would! Other than that, I love the dress!

I apologise for the grainy ipod, mirror shots, but until I dye my hair i'm not allowing my face in the shot!

Have a great week!


  1. ooohh pretty dress!

    1. Thank you! I have to admit mine are really bad as the last time i've been able to dye it was December. Not pretty! lol. Thanks for commenting :)

  2. Love the dress you are wearing - that length does really suit you:) I can't resist polka dots either or stripes...they make up a large percentage of my wardrobe! Blog is looking good lady.

    1. Thank you very much! It's a bit shorter than the photo makes it look, though. I'm waiting on yet another polka dot dress. The obsession is getting out of hand. Haha. Can't beat polka dots, stripes aren't for me though. Thanks hun xx
