I have to admit to going a bit mad in the last week and ended up buying 8 dresses, all from Peacocks. To be honest it’s one of those shops I’ve always ignored (thinking it was a bit dull) , then the Pearl Lowe spring collection came out and I fell in love. the price is amazing (£40 each)and the frocks are really pretty (and flattering). This range was closely followed by the Peacocks by Design range – there are some beauties here too.
These are the Pearl Lowe ones I got:
I’m not 100% sure about the cream floral one in the middle (will need to ask Stu’s opinion), so it may go back. Love the rest of them.
I also got 3 from their Peacocks by Design range – these were all between £35 & £38@
Still waiting for the middle one to arrive, but the other 2 are really pretty. One of my friends is planning to have afternoon tea at Prestonfield House for her hen do and I reckon the one on the right (with a little shrug or cardi, as it will be autumn) will be perfect for this.
Also need to get a pair of black sandals for walking around in on holiday etc – I always prefer wedges as sometimes pavements are cobbly or uneven. Think I’m opting for these ones from Clarks – got a similar pair in nude patent last year and they are fab – really, really comfortable yet nice enough to wear with a frock in the evenings.
Much as I love my fancy high heeled shoes, there are occasions where you just need something comfortable yet stylish (for example, walking around the Old Town in Edinburgh).
I’m a sucker for wide leg trousers and for the first time in years, Marks & Spencer have got theirs right – they’re lovely and wide at the bottom yet not too shapeless around the bum. I got some in black and white.
Let me know what your style must-haves are this spring/summer.
Will be back with some makes soon.
