Weekend Style: Blue Hues

Follow

With the UK/Ireland being in that awkward 'between seasons' stage where we're not quite out of the winter weather yet, but not quite getting the spring weather either.. long sleeves and layering pieces are essential. Recently, long sleeved dresses are all I've been looking for, but they're just so hard to find, so this new printed piece from Warehouse was definitely a must-buy. The sleeves are actually wrist-length but I prefer them to be rolled up just a bit and it's the perfect all-year-round piece as I can imagine it would look fab in the summer with tan legs and tan sandals, while it's also very Spring/Autumn appropriate as it looks amazing paired with sheer tights or when layered with a plain colour jacket to allow the pattern to peek through. I'm also loving the mixed print style of this dress, as well as the fact it can be worn as a long shirt with jeans for a more casual day-time look. Just imagine that with white jeans. *heart-eye-emoji*

'In The Style' Shirt Dress

Follow

My 'In The Style' wishlist has been growing very quickly these past few months as I'm forever admiring the outfits of so many girls on Instagram who often feature this brand. It seems to be everywhere at the moment and it's really no wonder - there's so many stunning pieces to choose from and everything is priced very reasonably, so it was definitely time I made my first of many more orders to come. 

One of the pieces I picked up was this Taura Grey Wine Paisley Shirt Dress (£24.99) below, which  can be worn in multiple ways. It's definitely a bit shorter than I prefer, especially due to the splits up the side, although I managed to pull it down quite a bit so I could wear it as a dress. With that being said, I loved the look when paired with tights and knee high boots - perfect for a night out when it's one of those awkward 'dressy but not too dressy' dress codes, or even to the cinema.

Since it arrived, I've worn it casually plenty of times and it's equally as nice when paired with jeans and boots! In the second photo, I paired it with my favourite blue denim Topshop Joni Jeans and burgundy boots which tied in perfectly with the colours of the shirt dress. It would also be lovely paired with white jeans and sandals when the weather picks up, or you could even leave it open and pair it with a cami underneath for a different look. I just love how versatile this piece is.. there are endless options.

For size reference, I ordered a size 8 and it fits fine although it is definitely not a neat fit. If I ordered again, I'd probably go for a size 6 if available, so definitely order your true size or even one size down in these shirt dresses if you can.
