Whistles Sales Bargain

dress - whistles, belt - vintage, shoes - m&s

I am back with a post after a couple of weeks off. James had an operation and has been recuperating at home this week, and I handed in my notice at work (eep!) so it's been pretty eventful! Between those two things and a lot of long hours, I didn't exactly do anything blogworthy, or even get off the sofa much when I did have some down time.

I'm on a long notice period so I will be sticking around my current workplace for a while yet, but it's exciting to be getting ready to move on somewhere new.

I spent Saturday mooching around Selfridges with my mum, which was the perfect pick me up. We both had vouchers to spend, so it was a good excuse, and we went to Comptoir Libanais for lunch (the prosecco cocktails are perfection!) and chatted and put the world to rights.

I spent my voucher on a vase, which I am sure I will photograph soon, but I also ended up purchasing this dress in the sales from Whistles for £33. I am not usually much of a Whistles fan, I find their clothes a bit expensive for what they are, and the materials are often super delicate which means I wear them once and they need dry cleaning already. This dress feels quite sturdy however, and lurking on the 70% off rail, how could I pass it up? Now to find some hot summer sun to pair it with!

I love Whistles but can never afford it...and I somehow always manage to miss the sales! Love this dress, such a bargain too! x

I hope James is recovering well.
Such a pretty dress. While Whistles isn't my usual go to, I find that there some hidden gems there. Clearly this dress is one of them.
