One of the best things about living in Bristol is sitting back on a sunny evening and watching the hot air balloons float up over the skyline. It’s no surprise then that I am drawn to anything and everything that has balloons on it! Thankfully for me the high-street is currently full of lovely balloon prints for me to indulge in.
First up is this delightful dress from Sugarhill Boutique. Look how pretty and floaty it is! I can just see myself swanning around in this frock on nice summers day, ice cream in hand. Sadly at £58 it’s just a little bit too expensive but the current bank holiday 20% off offer they are running is making a purchase seem sadly inevitable. Fans of big girls blouses will be pleased to hear that Sugarhill boutique all have this print in blouse form. Marvellous.
It has to be said that I am not a huge Dorothy Perkins fan. In fact the last time I ventured into store was over a year ago to buy, wouldn’t you know it, a rather spectacular balloon print top! but hey, what’s this? they appear to have excelled themselves once again in the old balloon top department and have succeeded in tempting me back in with this little number. It has a super cute peter pan collar and looks smart enough to be worn to work! Winner. It’s £25 which does seem a little steep so lets all cross our fingers for a DP sale.
Sometimes a girl just needs to buy herself a new novelty ring, right? and I can’t think of many things better to wear on my hand than a giant blue balloon. I think we can all agree that at £6 you could do a lot worse than invest in this gorgeous Louche ring available at Joy.
Holy moly there aren’t enough words for me to describe how much I love this dress. The colour! The print! THAT COLLAR. It’s a total dream of a dress and I have to admit that I bought it the moment I set eyes on it. Deep breaths everyone for at £70 from ASOS this is a bit of a balance breaker but Nishe have so many lovely dresses coming out at the moment that even if you miss out on this one another suitably divine dress will no doubt be on the horizon.
Hey look! This obsession doesn’t even have to limit itself to clothes! Check out these side plates from IKEA. At £3 each they are a bit of a bargain and I always love an excuse to go and claim a free cup of tea of an evening. My only complaint is why just the side plates IKEA? Someone needs to pull their socks up and give me dinner plates, cups and saucers and a maybe a nice vase. Is that too much to ask for?
Until next time!
