OOTD: Berry, berry nice…

Had to pop out today to do a few jobs, so thought I’d make the effort and try to look half decent! I bought this textured dress from Dorothy Perkins last week and its just perfect, the fit, the colour, the material. It’s pretty dreamy!

I wore: Dress – Dorothy Perkins// Jacket – F+F (past season)// Tights – BHS (past season) // Boots – Simply Be// Necklace – Dorothy Perkins..

The dress is a lovely soft fabric and is a generous fit, I got the 22, but I’d say it is suitable for size 24 too. It’s gorgeous deep mulberry colour. I wore it with my floral tights, chunky boots and biker jacket. 

Windswept, but not that interesting….

The dress is just £19.00 and Dorothy Perkins have a 25% off code at the mo DPFW25 making it just £14.25. Bloody bargain!! The boots from Simply Be are sadly now sold out but there are heaps of gorgeous cut out boots on the high street at the moment and the tights are past season BHS of all places, I was surprised to find they stocked plus size tights and cute ones for that matter?! So it’s definitely worth popping into your local branch to see if they have some similar ones this year.

    The jacket is great – always wanted one of those. Not sure if that style of zip/collar would suit me as I have a huge bust, and always struggle with jackets … any tips?

      I would actually say the collarless biker would be best for a larger bust, no huge lapels and fussy detailing around the bust area. I would get a smaller size that you could zip around you waist but leave open at the bust (if that makes sense!!) x x x
