I always enjoy dressing to my surroundings and at the moment I am surrounded by miserable January weather. I feel this delightful number from There’s Only One Amy Laws would cheer many a grey day. If only rain really was multicoloured. Sigh.

This Chi Chi London dress is more phrwoar-al than floral with a big bold digital print. It’s a stunning take on modern vintage from a brand I am becoming more and more obsessed with!

How lovely is this Lindy Bop dress? The colours are simply gorgeous but I think it’s the super pretty scalloped neckline that makes it a true top frock.

Wahey this is one jazzy pinny! IT’S PRACTICALLY SHOUTING it’s so loud but my goodness it’s fabulous and I just love those blues against the vibrant orange. Top work, Topshop.

Girls On Film Dogtooth Check Collared Dress £45 from Dorothy Perkins
Girls On Film Dogtooth Check Collared Dress £45 from Dorothy Perkins

Last but not least is this dogtooth print from Dorothy Perkins. It really reminds me of one of Victoria’s dresses and if there’s one thing I love, it’s to be reminded of Victoria. I think it’s the delightful contrasting collar which really makes the dress stand out.
