A few weeks ago I snapped up a bargain old season Warehouse dress on Ebay and it's been pretty much the only thing I've wanted to wear since, it's really reminded me how much I love Warehouse. Now that it's getting a bit warmer (well, sort of) I've been feeling really uninspired by most of my wardrobe and browsing the Warehouse website has given me the shopping bug. Warehouse have just launched a new campaign called Dash for the Sun which is all about getting rid of your boring winter coats and scarves and swapping them for shorts and floaty dresses. Whilst my changeover might not be as dramatic (or fun) as the girl in the video, I'm still hoping to pick up a few of these things from my wishlist. On Saturday 25th May Warehouse are giving away special Dash for the Sun kits including label.m and Dermalogica products and other goodies with purchases over £50 (at selected stores, have a look at the list here) to help you get ready for summer. I also noticed on the Warehouse Facebook page yesterday that you can get 20% off online purchases with the code DASH20, so there's no excuse not to do a bit of shopping this weekend!

I can't decide which of these dresses I like best - the pink one is such a gorgeous colour, the navy one looks like it would be perfect for holidays and the stripey dress is exactly the kind of dress I love for warm, sunny days. I already have a couple of stripey skater dresses but I quite fancy another one! I think it would look really nice with the pink wayfarer style sunglasses and a pair of wedge sandals. If only the weather was nice enough for an outfit like that!

You can't beat a good skater skirt in the summer, and this spotty denim one would be perfect for casual outfits. I tend to wear a lot of dresses rather than tops and bottoms, but I'm loving both of these Warehouse tops. The draped shirt looks like it would be lovely dressed up with heels and the statement torque necklace for a nice going-out outfit, and the bright lacey yellow one is completely different to my usual (all-black) style, but it's a beaut!

What's on your summer wishlist?

  2. The pink dress and the skater skirt are gorgeous! I always forget about Warehouse, but they always have lovely stuff! Xo

  3. Warehouse really does have so many hidden gems when you look. I need to go in there more as I usually always leave with something special. The bag and red dress especially are gorgeous, I love what you chose!

  4. I'm on such a sunglasses kick at the minute and love the pair you've chosen!

  5. I really like the sunglasses and the blue dress.

    I'd really like to find a good old denim mini skirt but am having trouble finding one that's cheap and a good colour. Also doesn't help that denim skater skirts are coming into fashion when I want a normal one!

  9. Great wishlist! I especially like that necklace and the yellow lace top, so pretty :)

  10. Absolutely love the pink dress and the spotty skater skirt... In fact I'd quite like the whole wishlist. My main summer wish is for smaller thighs to go with all the pretty dresses. Failing that, I'll settle for some sun!
