Dorothy Perkins Haul | Spring 2014

Friday, 16 May 2014
The other week I did a bit of online shopping on Dorothy Perkins for some new work outfits.  Now that the weather has been getting a bit nicer and it feels like we're properly into spring, I fancied brightening up my work wardrobe, moving away from the dark colours and injecting a bit of pastels. 

The first thing I got was this floral and grey top (£18) and it is currently one of my favourite things in my wardrobe - the colours are so beautiful!  I've worn this with jeans and skirts (OOTD coming soon actually) and it's so spring-like, I love it!  The back is completely grey too which is quite cool.

I was drawn to this bird print tee (£7) mainly because I love this lavendar colour, in fact it's almost identical to my much loved ASOS satchel.   I think it will look cute with my denim skirt, or just over plain black jeggings.

I intentionally bought these bright blue jeggings (£20) in a size too small so they could be my "slim into" trousers.  As I've briefly mentioned in a couple of posts, I've joined Slimming World, and I'm currently ~7lbs down so I reckon I should be able to fit into these once I get my 1 stone award.

Finally I got these 2 blouses/shirts which are perfect for the days where I need to be a bit smarter, like client meetings etc.  As you'll know I'm a bit obsessed with mint so I looove the mint colour block shirt (£28), also there's something super cute about the polka dot shirt too (this one is no longer online).

So quite a small haul, but I thought it was worth sharing anyway!  Dorothy Perkins is one of my favourite places to buy smarter stuff and it's also one of the first places I check for dresses when I've got a formal event.  They seem to have a lot of really nice stuff in at the moment too so I'd definitely recommend having a wee browse.


  1. I love the floral top with the green sleeves but the green blouse is probably my favourite thing here, it's gorgeous!

  2. Love the first top, it's so summery. Might have to bookmark it for my next office outfit splurge!
