WhatLauraWore: Celebrating Like A Queen

September is my favourite month of the year.  It's my favourite for many reasons but mostly because it's my birthday on the 26th.  This year I've got a few different nights out organised, gosh I'm like the Queen.  This is the outfit that I wore for my first night out; a meal and drinks in town with a few of my closest friends.
 
Polka Dot Dress from Simply Be, £40
WhatLauraWore:
Polka Dot Dress in coral spot from Simply Be
Coral wedges from Primark
Coral and gold stud clutch from River Island
Coral and gold heart studs from New Look
Coral rose ring from Primark
Gold chain cuff bracelet from Primark
Rose gold watch from DKNY
 
The polka dot dress from Simply Be is a short tea dress that is perfect for the summer.  It is super cute, super girly and a gorgeous choice for a girls night out.  The dress comes in a bright pinky coral colour with white spots, very Minnie Mouse but simple and eye catching and different to anything else I've seen out there.  I got lots of compliments on this dress when I wore it out.
 
It has a lovely shape to it; floaty angel sleeves which are great for those who aren't fond of the tops of their arms and a square neckline to flatter your bust and show a bit of cleavage.  The Polka Dot Dress comes with a patent black skinny belt that cinches you in at the waist.  The dress is light weight and soft, it floats over curves and looks so cute teamed with coral heels or wedges.  It could also be dressed down to wear during the day with cute ballet pumps.
 
It's available in sizes 12 to 32 and is 36 inches in length which is supposed to be knee length.  It is pretty short and I have a feeling that it may come up extra short on those who are much taller than me at 5ft 5", although it may be because my larger tummy will pull the dress upwards so I guess it's one of those dresses where you just need to try it on!  It feels great when you're wearing it girls, I love it, so give it a go!

How would you style this dress?  What are your top picks from Simply Be?
