At this time of year, I can’t help looking forward to the warmer months ahead. I absolutely cannot wait to leave the cold weather behind and start enjoying everything that Spring has to offer. Wardrobe wise I am more than ready to hang up my winter coats and start wearing my favourite dresses.
Todays outfit is perfect for the transition between warm and cold. This lovely dress from Laura Ashley has a high neck and long sleeves making it perfect for when the weather is still chilly, but Spring is in the air. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it at their press day last year and couldn’t wait for it to come in stock.
The colour is absolutely gorgeous, I love grown up classic dusky pinks, which go well with everything. I’ve paired it here with black tights and a hat along with my Orla Kiely shoes, for a warmer option. I love the classic lines of the dress, which pays homage to the classic 50s fit and flare style.
The best part of this dress for me is the little details. At the waist there a stitched in pleats, which make the drape of the skirt absolutely beautiful. The dress fastens with concealed buttons and has a tie detail at the neck. It also has a tie belt and I love the way the bows dress up the simple design. The length is also perfect and on me, sits just below the knee
The dress is made from a super soft very high quality cotton. It feels absolutely lovely to wear. I love the simple and chic design and it is the perfect classic addition to my wardrobe. I went for my usual size 14 and found the fit to be spot on. I think the style and colour are very versatile and this could be styled so many different ways throughout the year.
The dress is also available in a light blue denim, which I also really like. The dress is usually priced at £95 but is currently on offer at £66.50, which is a great price for the beautiful quality. This is definitely an item that will get a lot of wear and will stay in my wardrobe for many years.
I am really impressed with most of the offering from Laura Ashley this season, many of the designs have vintage influences and the designers have looked back at the archives for inspiration.
