Wednesday Wants

I've seen a few people complain that they are finding it hard to find cute skater style dresses or to know what to wear to work recently and while I don't have to wear anything formal to work it got me thinking that I often go for the show stoppers for my wishlists, dresses that the majority wouldn't really wear as day wear (obvs excluding you and I, Char!) so with this in mind I have ignored all those massive skirted dresses in their fancy fabrics and tried to rein it in!

I have lived in my Seasalt coat for the last few months.  Affectionately renamed ugly coat as it is totally not my go to style and more something my Mum would wear (sorry Mum) it has served me well being both waterproof and snuggly warm.  I got it half price from a local stockist so can forgive it for being ugly and plan to upgrade to one that doesn't have a bright pink lining next winter now I know it is worth every penny.  Anyhow I digress.  I hadn't really looked at Seasalt dresses before I discovered their coats and now I wish I had known about them ages ago.  I could have picked a number of dresses to share here but in the end opted for this beautiful shirt dress.  I adore the mix of colours, the shape is fantastic and the length spot on.  Would work right now with a little cardi (I would go for navy) and see you through summer.  Can't see you having a bad day when you are wearing such a happy dress.  They also have lots of yumminess to come, the lovely folk over at The Whiting Post shared this dress on their instagram - oh my days!! That has my name all over it plus it's barkcloth!

 Dress: Seasalt

You can always rely on Yumi for a good print or two.  I love this house print dress, the back cut out adds a really nice detail.  I don't like that the model has been over airbrushed in the photos though so I went for image of just the pretty dress.  Why do brands do this?!  There is an image of the dress and another girl in a matching skirt where you can see that the dress is a lovely fit, the sleeves are really nice.

 Dress: Yumi

I was really intrigued when I saw this Asos dress is described as 'natural fibre skater dress' turns out to Asos natural fibre includes a 100% polyester lining! haha.  It's still cute plus the stripe matching is pretty impressive for RTW, it is perfect on the back bodice over the zip.  Kudos Asos.

Dress: Asos

  1. Love that house print, the back cut out detail is cute. What is this work-appropriate clothing business of which you speak?! :P

  2. Ahhh I love Yumi dresses. I pick them up for less than half price in the House of Fraser sale. They fit so well and wear so great! It's bad in a way, as I'm trying not to buy so much RTW, but a Yumi bargain is always too good to pass up! :)

    2. That's fab! I love dresses with sleeves, as I don't like my bare arms. Thanks for the heads up! :)

    3. I struggled finding dresses with sleeves which is one of the reasons I started making my own. It's a gorgeous dress, hope you love it!

  3. I love the Seasalt dress. I have been struggling to find dresses I like and am so upset that there aren't as many skater dresses around compared to a few years back! x

    1. There really is a shortage. There are a few beauties on the Seasalt site and they are reasonably priced. I also love Emily and Fin, their dresses are so nice to wear and totally timeless.

  4. Ha, I have no idea about work appropriate!!! 4 Doctor Who badges worn on a short shirt dress, a mini dress covered in cartoons, no problems!!! I have one of Sea Salt's shirt dresses-mine is covered in boats, I love it!!!
    It does hack me off when natural dresses have a nasty polyester lining-they are horrid!!
