Dorothy Perkins Dress* | John Lewis Sandals

Today takes me back to the last of my teen years when tea dresses were high on my list alongside shift dresses. Every weekend was spent drinking tea, eating cupcakes and bringing home a new dress from my favourite vintage shop. Fast forward seven years and those tea dresses are few and far in between these days, with jeans and a casual tee being favoured (and that trusty leather jacket..), but with the evening sun still shining through, this yellow tea dress was just perfect for a few glasses of pimms with friends and family in the garden.


As much as I love throwing on my jeans and boots, it's fair to say that a tea dress instantly lifts your mood, making me feel like a true girl... And finished up with the most comfortable white sandals a girl could possibly own.
Dorothy Perkins isn't a place I always visit and I'm not sure why (I guess it's a habit thing...) but after browsing their site, I'm fast thinking of the space I need to create in the dressing room with my already filled basket. They're also running the #DPDressSelfie competition where you can win a dress every month for a year and if you ask me, well me and my inner teen think that's amazing. I would always find room for twelve new dresses...
