Hello dress fans! It’s time once again to take a gander at the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval! There’s plenty of new arrivals happening at the moment so I have been slightly spoiled for choice! Let’s crack on…
Hot air balloon prints are basically my thing (our first ever post was about balloon prints fact fans!) so when I noticed that Kate Spade has brought out an entire collection of balloon inspired wears my credit card spontaneously combust out of fear. I mean, just look at this bag! It’s all so perfect. Now, I wouldn’t normally include something so high end on a Double Thumbs roundup but this list is supposed to reflect the dresses that I am lusting over and oh boy do I want to float around the world in this vintage inspired shirt dress. Get in my (wicker) basket, etc etc.
But hey, the sky is still obtainable even without my balloon thanks to Cath Kidston and their gorgeous new cloud print. This is possibly one of my favourites ever of theirs thanks to that beautiful shade of blue. It’s such a fresh print and, as always, the perfect shape too.
Hot on it’s heels at the top of my CK wishlist is this fab Ric Rac print dress. How fab are those colours? So bright and fun! It reminds me of a maypole and makes me want to go to country fetes and wear a straw boater. I basically just need this dress.
Boden have also brought out some absolutely cracking dresses this season because it would appear nobody wants me to have any money anymore. Cheers, guys. Anyhoo, this fruity frock has pipped the others to the post as my favourite and is most definitely the apple of my eye (sorry). I really love the orange and the pink print but it does also come in blue too if that hue just isn’t for you.
This lovely floral midi dress from Seasalt has been styled on a vintage tea dress. It’s ever so pretty and I love the print and all the button detailing.
We have actually featured this gorgeous envelope print from Emily and Fin before when they originally debuted it in navy blue last year. It is now back in a fresh new colour for 2015 and would make the perfect Valentine’s frock. Who needs a card when you’ve got 450 beautiful envelopes, eh?
I also fall in love with the Orla Kiely for People Tree collections and this season is no exception. For Spring this year they have gone classic Orla with retro 50s inspired pieces in beautiful shades of pink, grey and green. I think this sleeveless number is my current front runner.
We finish off in true twirly style with this pink polka dot number from Joules. I do love a good floaty fock and this ticks all the right 50s boxes for me. Gorgeous!
Please pass on my apologies to your bank manager,
