I should never have opened up the Warehouse website. I swear they’re just doing this to taunt me now:
This has to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve seen in a long time: it’s also £100, and totally impractical for my lifestyle – especially as we head towards autumn, and pretty pastel dresses become just a distant memory. If I DID have a spare £100 lying around, though, I’d have absolutely no hesitation in snapping this one up… even although I have absolutely no excuse to wear it! Speaking of pretty dresses, though…
It’s the shape of this dress I love more than anything. It’s totally simple, but the fullness of the skirt – which is so characteristic of Chi Chi London dresses – really gives it a bit of wow factor: as does the criss-cross design of the straps at the back.

This is, quite literally, a lovely jumper. I have a bit of a weakness for slogan sweaters, which are great with jeans, but sometimes even better with something unexpected – like a floral midi skirt, say.
I’m a little bit obsessed with Office at the moment: I bought a pair of their ‘On To Point’ court shoes a few weeks ago, and they’ve been on constant rotation ever since: not only do they go with everything (I got the nude suede version, but I want them ALL, basically), they’re also one of the most comfortable pairs of heels I’ve ever owned, which makes them so easy to wear. As I say, I’d love to have them in a few more colours, but I think the next pair of Office shoes I go for might have to be these ‘Natalie’ courts, which have a d’orsay cut and sweetheart vamp: the shape of these is just so beautiful they look like they could easily be worth more than just £65!
Apologies in advance if this dress is already sold out in your size: it’s on sale, which means it’s in low supply, but that also means it’s only £18, so if your size IS in stock, you have the chance to get yourself a bargain. I think it could be the perfect everyday dress – dress it up or down, as required!
