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 🙂
It’s been a full-on-fasion week here at Florence Finds and I’m grateful for those of you who may not be enthralled by fashion 24/7 for sticking with me. I actually had more to share with you than I could fit in so I’ll be scattering the odd catwalk review in amongst my usual posts in the coming weeks and I’ve yet to share my fashion week diary…
However, let’s get back down to earth shall we? This week, amongst the madness mentioned above, a catalogue for Mint Velvet dropped on my lap. I’m a bit of a sucker for comfortable, flattering, wearable basics and flicking through the selection, I found the type of dresses I could wear time and time again.
This however is the one that caught my eye…
Silk Front Jade Dress, Mint Velvet – £79
There’s something romantic about the intertwined necks of the swans even if it is because they are digitally imposed upon each other! 😉
For me, this is a perfect dress for a casual dinner with friends. Worn with flat boots and a scarf or sparkly necklace, it’s looks pretty whilst affording plenty of room for dessert.
Happy weekend readers 🙂
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?
