River Island Summer Day Dress Wishlist 2016

I do love the style and range of clothes that can be found at River Island, they have some gorgeous shoes and fabulous daywear including some amazing summer dresses.  I’m now counting down to the summer as I am overly excited and can’t wait for its arrival and to help you all feel that little bit summerier too I thought I would share my River Island summer day dress wishlist.  The following dresses are my top 5 must haves for the warmer months.

This navy eyelet dress is that little bit different. It’s one of those styles that may not look that great on the hanger but do not be fooled it looks great on.  It also complements a fuller bust but for those that may feel they are lacking a little in that region a push up bra will work wonders.

The dress is priced at £150 but will get a lot of wear and can be dressed up with a little sparkle and a cute clutch to transform it into a beautiful evening outfit.

For really warm days, yes we do get them in the UK and of course an ideal dress to wear on holiday this £28 khaki asymmetric dress is lovely.  Pair it with a tan (from a bottle please I am not promoting anyone going out and getting a natural tan/skin damage) add a little gold jewellery and you have a feminine and stylish look.

Another dress that is suited to tanned or darker skin is this pretty white ace bandeau dress.  It’s got to be a summer wardrobe staple for all that love relaxed, loose, floaty dresses and can also be dressed up easily.  It’s only £35 so a great buy too.

This stunning dress really shows curves so is suited best for those with a slim line figure.  The style is perfect for day wear as these are very comfortable.  I really love the colour!  This is the lowest priced dress from those chose and is only £22.

Last but definitely not least this off-the-shoulder Bardot neckline, belted black maxi dress.  It was love at first sight I must admit when I saw it!!!!  Reasonably priced at £30 this has to be a firm summer must have contender.  I could easily see myself wearing this in the day and at night.  This is one of those dresses we all need to have.

Great Girls Coats for Spring 2016

It’s finally Spring, the thought of which fills me with joy at the knowledge that Summer will eventually arrive as I have placed an order for some nice warm days this year.  Recently I purchased some Tweed Black and White coats from John Lewis in their sale.  These coats are suitable not only for Winter but also the Spring months which are still rather chilly.  I love the design and quality of these coats.

DSC02227Suitable for various occasions we thought that they would be more than appropriate for our recent film premiere visit to Kung Fu Panda 3.  The coats were not only warm but looked great especially against the brightness of the red carpet!!!

 Also on my shopping list are some other equally adorable coats for girls from a couple of other retailers.

This beige quilted coat with faux fur trim from RJR.John Rocha at Debenhams is a gorgeous style and I am clearly not alone in thinking so.  Pop onto their site and you will see that these are low in stock so if you want one hurry!!!

 Beige is a great colour for the Spring and also Summer seasons and following in that colour theme I also found this beige belted faux fur jacket this time from River Island.  Also available in khaki both have a removable fur trim but I think the coat looks better with the trim rather than without.

Next up this adorable beige trench coat from alexandalexa.  The classic style should see you through younger sisters too provided your little one takes reasonable care of their coat.

Coat 4

I’m loving the alexandalexa site at the moment and this time deviating from beige to a classic black.  I couldn’t decide between their puffer from Kickle or Burberry.  Both are padded and lined with faux fur and would look great on my girls.
