Heart Print Shirtdress £48 from Topshop
Heart Print Shirtdress £48 from Topshop

How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways! This Topshop heart print shirtdress is simply vintage valentine perfection! It’s just SO cute which is probably why everyone has been snapping it up since it appeared online late last week. Curses! It’s worth checking though as they do keep adding more stock. The print is also available in a just-as-popular shirt.

Stripe Shirt Dress £55 from Topshop
Stripe Shirt Dress £55 from Topshop

But, hey, who needs hearts when you can stripe a pose in this little Topshop number instead? Apparently this print is ‘conversational’, a description that never fails to make me laugh, but I’ll gladly discuss those delectable stripes, the neatly cinched in waist and cute little button up detail with anyone who will listen.

Red Cross and Plaid Belted Flare Dress £42.14 (with discount) from Chicwish
Red Cross and Plaid Belted Flare Dress £42.14 (with discount) from Chicwish

There’s so much I love about this Chicwish dress that I’m not entirely sure where to start! The colour and cross/plaid combo print are pretty magnificent and that whopper of a belt is just everything to me right now. Also, sleeves. I’m all about those long sleeves. It’s really rather cold at the moment, if you hadn’t noticed.

Guards & Friends Sleeveless Slub Dress £65 from Cath Kidston
Guards & Friends Sleeveless Slub Dress £65 from Cath Kidston

Atteeeeentttttion! It’s time to quick march yourself to the Cath Kidston website to grab one of these incredible soldier print dresses! What a print and, not that I’m planning ahead or anything, but the potential perfect dress to wear to the Queen’s 90th birthday party. Assuming I get invited of course.

Retro Floral Print Bell Sleeve Dress £18 by F&F
Retro Floral Print Bell Sleeve Dress £18 by F&F

Yes Tesco! I am digging this retro floral frock. Who doesn’t love a good bell sleeve? and the shift shape with that dreamy print is ticking all the right boxes. Oh and did I mention it’s only eighteen pounds? BARGAIN.

Babydoll Dress in Grey Cat Print £165 by Paul & Joe Siser at ASOS
Babydoll Dress in Grey Cat Print £165 by Paul & Joe Siser at ASOS

So you might need some extra cash floating around for this Paul & Joe Sister affair (and if you’ve got extra cash at this stage in January then you are a better person that I) but, my goodness, it’s only flippin’ covered in cats. Meow! I adore the grey and the pink against the cream, you might even say I’m lapping it up.

Caroline Dress £59.99 from Chi Chi
Caroline Dress £59.99 from Chi Chi

Chi Chi really are the Queens of the occasion frock at the moment and this big ol’ floral number is just the latest in a long line of hits. I love the brown with the gorgeous red tones of the flowers, I think it’s just perfect for this time of year. You could dress this one up but it would look equally fab with thick white tights and brown boots.

Verna Skater Dress in Dutch Floral £40 by Motel
Verna Skater Dress in Dutch Floral £40 by Motel

Last but not least we have this Dutch delight from Motel. The button up high neck with alllll that detail down the front is just great. I’m also, as is no doubt totally predictable by now, wildly into those long cuffed sleeves! Do be prepared to get your pins out though, this one looks short!

That’s all folks,

Jx
