Ahoy there Hemsters! If you are a Laura Ashley fan, you may have spotted two very familiar faces this week on their wonderful blog. We took two of their gorgeous retro inspired dresses along to our recent city break to Oxford. Victoria picked the colouful 50’s style Sail Boat Print Fit Flare Dress and Straw Panama Hat, whilst Jo chose the gorgeous Beach Scene Halterneck Dress with the rather glam Floppy Straw Hat, all of which are from Laura Ashley’s current Sunset Collection.
We dressed down for this wee jaunt down the river to Oxford’s stunning Botanical Gardens, but we can’t wait to restyle these blue beauties again when we set sail on our summer holidays. Jo accessorized her halterneck dress with the Milan Clutch* from Boden, cute ASOS ballet flats and a mustard Primark belt. Victoria’s tan sandals are from New Look and the gorgeous straw bag is from Primark. Unfortunately, the straw bag is now unavailable, as it sold out faster than disposable BBQ’s in a heatwave.
