Being a bit of a dress addict, I’m always on the look out for pretty additions to my wardrobe. Obviously I love my vintage pieces, but I also have a lot of modern clothes. I also pick up a lot of clothing at Sainsburys. Their Tu Clothing range keeps going from strength to strength. They are perfect for good quality everyday clothes and often have a classic retro feel. Last autumn and winter I found so many great things. I wrote a post last year about my denim dungaree dress and another about my corduroy dungaree dress.

Usually at this time of year I favour 60s and 70s styles. The colours and prints work really well for the season and the styles are easy to wear with boots and tights. There’s a few things I really like at the moment from Tu. I’ve chosen 3 dungaree dresses, as they worked so well for me last year. I love choosing lovely tops and blouses to mix and match with them. I’ve also included two 60s style shifts to wear with coloured tights. I also chose some vibrant 70s inspired dresses which I always wear constantly this time of year. The denim dress is just a classic and perfect for lazy casual days.

I discovered Joanie Clothing at some point last year and fell in love with their modern twist on classic styles. The first dress I got from them was a fabulous cherry print shirt dress which you can see on my Instagram. I’ve also featured two outfits from them on the blog. My striped shirt dress review and an outfit featuring their Bonjour sweater and polka dot skirt.

Their new stock recently landed and there are quite a few things that have caught my eye. I love their blouses and sweaters which are perfect for mixing with jeans and vintage skirts. Their dresses are always amazing and I can’t get enough of the blue and red colour palette and poppy prints. The denim blouse would be perfect for under my pinafore dresses and I love the ruffle sleeves and 70s vibes of the polka dot dress.

If you’ve been reading a while, you’ll know I’m a bit obsessed with the Disney and Cath Kidston collaborations. I’ve been collecting the dresses since the first Winnie the Pooh one came out last year. Before each new collaboration is announced I get really over excited and try to guess which it will be. So far we’ve had Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, 101 Dalmatians and now Peter Pan. I’m already guessing what will be next, here’s hoping for Lady and The Tramp or Aristocats one day!

The Peter Pan collection launches next Thursday and Cath Kidston have just released their preview, so you can see everything that will be coming in. Realistically I can only choose a couple of things, but I thought I’d put together a Wishlist of all the stuff I love from the collection anyway.

Fashion: I’m starting with the most important one here! This is probably my favourite fashion range yet, I love the longer length on the dresses and the shirt dress is absolutely perfect for this time of year.

Tea Time: I am completely and utterly addicted to buying nice tea sets and pretty things for my kitchen. The Tinker Bell Posy print, is absolutely perfect for me and I really love the range which includes a tea cup and saucer, cereal bowl and mug. I also really like the apron, perfect for a spot of baking. I also like to take a hot drink out with me, so the travel cup would be super handy.

Accessories: Being Cath Kidston, there are obviously a lot of nice bags and accessories, including some cute make-up bags. It was hard to choose my Wishlist, but for me the tote bag would be really useful as it’s big enough to carry all my things. I always need nice notebooks, as I never stop writing lists and blogging ideas. I also just love the pom pom keyring and phone cover.

Take a look at the preview and let me know what you’ve got your eye on from the collection. I’d also love to hear people guesses for what the next collection will be.

I always feel a bit sad at this time of year, when Autumn clothes start appearing in the shops. I don’t feel ready for summer to be over. But I also have a bit soft spot for Autumn colours and the idea of stomping through the leaves with the kids and I start to get a little excited.

This is my first of what I’m sure will become many Autumn wish lists. As it’s still August I’ve chosen transitional pieces, that work well now, but can be layered up as it starts to get cold. Add tights and cardigans and long sleeved tops for under sleeveless dresses and these will be perfect for the colder months as well.

A couple of months ago, I visited the Peacocks AW17 press day and I was blown away by how lovely all their stock was. I’ll be writing about that a little later in the year, but it did get me looking at their summer offering. At the moment I’m still really liking 70s influences and loving long flowing dresses and floral prints. I was kindly sent a few things from Peacocks to try and the first is this gorgeous orange maxi dress.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.I’m a big fan of bright colours and this dress really stood out to me. I really liked the shape of the dress with it’s faux button down front and relaxed off the shoulder neckline. The dress actually fastens with a concealed zip at the back.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.This was the perfect outfit for a morning walk in Richmond Park, with Rob and Lila. The dress is really comfortable to wear and the slit at the front makes it easy to walk and move around in. We actually met up with some friends afterwards for a game of football with the kids. I ran around for half an hour comfortably in it!

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.The dress is made from Polyester and is machine washable. I went for my usual size 14, which was perfect for me. Length wise I’m 5’6″ and the length was pretty good too.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.My maxi dress is paired with a floral hair garland from H&M and a pair of gold Sol sandals from Hotter.

I’m looking forward to sharing some more of my outfits from Peacocks with you, as well as some more 70s inspired looks. I think it’s great to have fun and mix your eras and constantly find new things to wear. It’s also been fun putting a retro look together from a high street shop.

Find my dress on the Peacocks website it’s currently in the sale for just £15!
