Friday Frock O’clock


Denim Pinafore Dress £23, ASOS.

Is it me, or is ASOS on fire right now?

I never used to shop at ASOS, or if I did, it was more like you would in a department store, looking at brands they stock instead of their own range. I perceived it as too young and poor quality but I’ve realised once you get past the gazillion bodycon lycra-esque dresses, there’s some pretty up tot he minute items on there and you can’t fault the prices for a fashion fix. I really love ASOS Collection – their more ‘cutting edge’ London designed selection and it’s from there that this week (and last week’s) dress hails from.

I’m a real fan of dressing down at the weekend and am having a love affair with denim. Whilst you won’t find me getting back into my dungarees from my teenage years, there was something sweet about this pinafore dress that I loved and given the cool weather we’ve been having, I loved the idea of layering up with a long sleeved tee underneath. It’s a youthful look but I think with some ankle boots or preppy flats it could work all summer long and for £32, why not try the trend?

Happy weekend readers! I’m driving down south for a bit of wedding prep with Jess and hoping for glorious weather. I hope you enjoy it too 🙂

Love,

Spotted: Atterley Road

Recently, I’ve been looking towards a more grown up, streamlined and simplistic style for my Autumn/Winter outfits. I don’t know what has prompted the changed, but  I feel more like inventing my own take on the trends than slavishly following them. Maybe it’s the advent of the cooler months resurecting my favourite styles and colours that makes me veer towards my signature style, but viewing a lot of the high street collections just hasn’t been doing it for me like it did early in the year as the spring summer collections flooded in. I’ve been looking for less pieces of higher quality and with serious wardrobe miles in them. Enter Atterley Road.


Shirt, 0039 Italy // Skirt, Jiqsaw // Necklace, Made // Shoes, Whistles // Ring, Made ~ All @ Atterley Road

Have you seeen the adverts for Atterley Road, ALL over the internet recently? It was through one of those ads that I clicked through to the site and found a really great concept – designed to feel like shopping on your favourite high street (a London-ism for sure,) but online, there’s an edited selection of pieces – ‘the best of brands you know and love – with new labels you’ll grow to love.’ Snappy style guides are regularly produced addressing fashion trends people like you or I need – a collection of knits for the wintery weather, your work wear wardrobe sorted or a capsule collection of key pieces every girl needs. And I think the selection is impeccable.

You’ll find my favourites like Whistles, NW3 by Hobbs and Hunter, and cooler labels like IRO, Ash and Des Petites Hauts. As I was doing a bit of window shopping I thought I would put a couple of outfits together to solve some of my own dilemma’s right now and demonstrate the breadth and quality available.


Top and Belt, Des Petits Hauts // Jeans, 7 for all Mankind // Earrings, Made // Satchel, Jiqsaw // Ballet flats, French Sole

There isn’t a huge selection, but that’s because they have done the legwork for you. Need a work skirt? Find the perfect pencil style easily. Statement dress or weekend, reassuringly, dresses are the largest section and there’s all the finishing touches too, including jewellery, bags and shoes. 🙂

I can see I’m going to be spending a lot of time on the Atterley Roadsite and quite possibly a lot of money! Have you heard of Atterley Road and do you like my outfit choices?

Friday Frock O’clock

I’m having a real thing about denim right now, specifically chambray shirts and I have always loved a good shirt dress, so this latest find of a frock was right up my street.


Oasis utility shirt dress – £50

With all the rain we have been having I have been searching for something just to brighten life up a little, but couldn’t face another floral, brightly coloured or shiver-inducing dress. This is perfect for layering and a killer weekend dress that you could even dress up for the evening with some quirky heels and sparkly jewels. Even though I tend to opt for separates for casual dressing and this could be the dress to change all that…

Do you like readers? And what frock have you been lusting after this week?

Love,
Rebecca
