Wednesday Wants

Hello!  My first blog post as a 40 year old.  Wowzers.  Still not feeling it but hopefully after some time celebrating it this weekend with my favourites I will finally be used to it!  Maybe.  I couldn't miss the opportunity to pull together a Valentines inspired wishlist.  While I can give or take the day (hey Gray and I won't even be in the same county this year) I do love a good heart print and Valentines is the perfect excuse to wear your heart on your sleeve.  I wear my heart on my nails every day of the year after all.  I am interested to see if there are any leap year proposals in my timeline this year, good luck if you're planning something.

Oh my.  I cannot explain how much I adore this dress.  I love the Abigail anyway, such a lovely cut and the perfect length for me but in this print it is outstanding.  I love the inclusion of pink on the hearts as coordinating red with pink is one of my favourite combinations.  I find it quite hard to wear red with my orange hair but for this dress it's defo a case of orange hair don't care!  I am now wishing I had these Orla Kiely shoes to create the perfect outfit.

 Dress: Emily and Fin

Not everyone wants to go the whole hog and cover themselves in hearts for V-day.  Obviously I am not one of those, the more novelty the print the better in my books.  This asos dress is the perfect blend - cute girly style with a knock out red.  Subtle without being too subtle.

 Dress: asos

And for those of you who want to scream out this Lazy Oaf dress does the talking for you!  The big bold hearts certainly pack a sucker punch straight to the heart.  Go bold or go home.  This dress is also awesome, how can you not walk around with a massive smile on your face when wearing it.  It's a mood boost in dress form!

 Dress: Lazy Oaf

If I was putting together my perfect outfit for the lovely romantic meal I am not going on I would have to wear my choice of dress with the Orla Kiely shoes I wish I had and this Olivia Blazer from Joules.  Pink and red perfection.  The tailoring looks spot on and it's the perfect shade of baby pink, not too pastel to wash you out.  I love it.

I have made a Valentines inspired dress the last couple of years, you can see the first one here and last years here.  I have cut out the fabric for this years but am fast running out of time to sew it together :(  But then again a heart print dress is not just for Valentines ;)



  1. I seem to be lacking in heart print dresses but I don't understand how this could possibly be the case!

  2. I love the Lazy Oaf dress - supposed to not be spending but I can see that one becoming mine!
