This is feeling a bit like deja-vu because I shared the exact same two sale items consecutively on Instagram a few weeks ago and I've decided that's the right thing to do now on the blog too! As I started the week talking about my sale purchases I thought I may as well continue. I was really disappointed in the sales actually and didn't buy much at all, I wasn't in London for very long either which definitely didn't help but I placed a few online orders and went to a couple of stores but it was all pretty disappointing really and I think I only kept 5 items in total - major fail. 

I did however find this dress in H&M which is a mix of so many trends in one piece and I love it! It has gorgeous flare/bell sleeve detailing which was probably what caught my eye initially but it also goes into a bit of a high neck with a gorgeous open back which would normally put me off buying because I don't feel comfortable not wearing a bra (I wore a stick-on bra for these photos) but as it was in the sale I picked it up anyway and I'm glad that I did! You might still be able to find it in-store but if not I've found an incredibly similar version from Warehouse! This time of year I pair everything with knee high boots to avoid wearing tights; I've never been too fussed about wearing tights but recently I've really been avoiding them so these boots have been my go-to.

Dress - H&M (super similar!)

  1. THIS DRESS IS AMAZING! The flare in the sleeves gives it a 60's feel and the knee high boots go perfectly with it. This has a modern twist to it because of the open back, which is the perfect way to show a little skin. LOVE!

  5. This is such a beautiful outfit! I love it. I'm not really big on the 60s/70s trend, but I think I may need to take a trip to H&M :)

    1. Hopefully you'll spot it, the Warehouse dress is so similar to this one though so worth a look if you don't find this exact one! X
