outfit | my throwback dress




old dress- Topshop
new dress*-  New Look

I was recently offered the chance to be a part of a really fun campaign New Look are running called my Throwback Dress. We all have that one dress in our wardrobe that is our 'go to'... a dress you will never throw away and never lets you down, a dress you rely on to make you look and feel good.
New Look challenged me to find myself a new 'throwback dress' from their gorgeous collection in a bid to make me give my old one a bit of a break.

My old throwback dress was a bargain in the Topshop sale about 18 months ago, I paid £10 for it and have worn it so many times I couldn't even tell you! It's an incredibly soft jersey material that is really comfy and I think flatters my figure. It's the sort of thing I've worn casual, smart and for a night out. I really love it and have definitely got my money's worth from it, however I think it's going to the back of my wardrobe for a while!

I have a new love of my life in the form of this gorgeous peach floral dress kindly sent to me by New Look. It's 100% going to be my go to for Summer and my new throwback dress, I love floral prints and pastel colours so you can imagine the love I felt when I saw this and it's a bargain at £19.99! I really love the print and the fit of the dress. I am usually stuck in a dark colour rut so I am glad my new throwback dress is one with lovely colours to brighten up my outfits! It's a lightweight material that will be great for keeping cool if we get any heat but also great for layering up in the colder (usual) weather. I can tell I will be wearing this dress a lot and that it's going to be the dress I pick for basically any occasion!

Are you a fan of my new throwback dress?

    You look gorgeous - I am in love with your new dress! I definitely have a few too many 'go to' dresses (can't go wrong) but you've inspired me to branch out and find some new loves too! :)

    Your new (and old!) dress is gorgeous. I love the peachy colour and the colours in the flowers - so perfect for summer. Fingers crossed we get some sunshine!

    I personally prefer your new dress but I ALWAYS wear a paisley maxi dress I got from H&M ages ago. I loved it so much I hit eBay to get it in a different colour. I was pleased to see paisley is 'in' this year ;)

      I love it when you find something like that and you can get it in more than one colour or pattern. It is hard to thing things that you love that much so it's fab when you do! :)
