Summer is fast approaching, as is pay day so I am getting myself fully prepared and doing some online window shopping before my favourite day of the month arrives. One of my favourite places to shop is New Look so that is where I've started in my quest to update my wardrobe for the summer. I don't want to buy too much as I'm on a fitness binge at the moment so I'm saving myself for buying holiday clothes before my trip to Zante for my hen week but that is AGES away and I need some summer in my wardrobe now!
I really need some casual items to wear during the day but I must admit I'm so tempted by their summer evening dresses. I've decided to look at some casual dresses that could take me from the work place, to shopping with the girls, to an evening meal and cocktails out as the sun goes down.
Here's my picks:
We all know by now that I can't go from one summer to the next without a coral dress. The Coral Crochet Collar Sleeveless Chiffon Dress (1) is a super cute, romantic girlie number that would really be figure flattering with its nipped in waist and gently pleated skirt. It'd look great with some summer sandals and a clutch bag.
Speaking of coral, last year I bought the Cut Out Racer Back Top (2) in coral and this year, I'm really tempted to get this gorgeous turquoise one too. I'd pair this with some white linen trousers which are another wardrobe staple of mine in the summer time.
Another top that I love the look of is the Pink Hand Print Vest (3) which would look awesome with some denim shorts and flip flops. Uber casual but very summery and festival chic. Of course, this laid back look wouldn't look complete without some sunnies like the gorgeous Gold Leopard Print Pilot Sunglasses (4).
The Pale Blue Shirred Waist Sleeveless Dress (5) would make a gorgeous addition to my wardrobe. I could wear it with some leggings and a cardigan for work and on the weekend, I'd wear it with a tan bag, belt and these gorgeous Tan Gladiator Cork Wedge Sandals (6) to create a feminine daytime look that would be perfect for shopping or lunch with the girls.
Whilst I really wanted to stay away from eyeing up another dress, the Navy Embellished Strap Grecian Prom Dress (7) has really caught my eye. The shape is so feminine and will look killer on many figures. I really like the look of white and navy together and the embellishments will sparkle perfectly in the early evening sunshine. Love it.
That's enough late night online window shopping for me. I can't wait for pay day so that I can place my order. You'll see some items appearing in my WhatLauraWore outfit posts very shortly!
