Fashion: Select, Dorothy Perkins and New Look Haul

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well! It is fast approaching my birthday - the 9th of June in case you were wondering! So whilst I was off work last week I was lucky enough to get treated to some new clothes! I'm a practical girl. I love clothes that I can dress down for at home and dress up for work. So I decided I would choose some versatile pieces!

Select - skater style floral dress with lace back - £14

In my local area a Select shop has opened. I have Select shops with bus/train distance away however it is lovely to have one so close now as I love the Select range. Pretty much all of my lace and floral dresses for work are Select dresses! The first think I grabbed is this lovely skater style dress with gorgeous lace detailing across the upper back area. I love the lace on the back as it means the dress itself is cool and airy however it is very modest and understated. The dress itself is flowy so it is very comfortable. Particularly in work.


Here is a close up of the pattern of the dress which I have done for all the dresses I have bought so you can see the detailing! The dress itself was £14 which is very affordable. I have fallen in love with this dress!

Select - skater style floral dress - £10 on sale from £12

Another Select dress! This one I actually spotted in the sale rack. As you can probably tell from this post (and my other clothes hauls) I really love floral and lace designed dresses. Skater style is also my favourite. So it was lovely to find another dress in the same style that I love!


Once again here is a close up of the material. I really love how the colours look dark close up but the dress from far away looks very pink and summery! As I said I picked this dress up in the sale and it was £10 marked down from £12.


Dorothy Perkins - open front, belted dress - On sale £19 from £28

Another bargain dress! This time this dress is from Dorothy Perkins and has an open slit in both the front and the back. This creates a little oval style slit on both the front and back. The dress itself is also belted meaning it provides great structure around the waist area. The dress also has a pleated front. It is a shame the beautiful detail really doesn't show up well on camera! 


Luckily I managed to also get this dress in the sale! Usually I don't like to pay over £20 for everyday dresses so seeing that this dress was on sale from around £28 to £19 meant that I had to get it! I just love the pink in this dress it is so vibrant. The dress is also very elegant and I can see myself dressing it up for the summer!


New Look - ankle boots - £12 on sale from around £24

Yes I am the type of girl who goes and buys boots when summer is around the corner (supposedly).Though in this instance I'm glad I am!  I do a lot of walking so it is important that I have good pairs of walking shoes that I can wear. New Look always have shoes from last season in little sale sections arranged by size which is fantastic. So I was quickly able to scan my shoe size and find these. I was a bit unsure at first as I am more of a combat boot wearer however I have really fallen for these. They are lined inside too which makes them super comfortable! As you can tell from above they were reduced from £24 to £12 which I am so happy about! Such a bargain!
