I had a fabulous trip back home in the UK last week and one of the nicest parts was being back in the countryside. I grew up in a small village and now I’m older I’m much more appreciative of the beauty of this kind of landscape. I took several pics in “The Shire” as I call it – the first of this series shows you a new dress I bought from Dorothy Perkins, a UK brand who are impressing me with their shift dresses right now.
This cream dress attracted me because of its shape and the simplicity of the pleating around the neckline:
I think it’s perfect for summer garden parties as well as for work, when I’d probably pair it with a tan coloured belt and a blazer. Dorothy Perkins have some great summer dresses in right now – two favourites I picked out from their online catalogue are this beige one shoulder pleated dress and the yellow curve pocket dress:
l often rave about their shoes as well. I was tempted by these coral court shoes at just £25, but I feared the excess baggage charge on my suitcase far too much.
Despite waiting until my trip home to shop with them, Dorothy Perkins ship to many international locations if you’re not in the UK to visit their stores.
Wearing: Cream dress from Dorothy Perkins. Sadly I could not find the link to my dress online but you can browse all their dresses here. Shoes (just seen) ALDO Dwelle wedges. Star necklace from Hallmark of Titchfield.
