Paisley prints are one of my all-time favourite things to wear – especially in summer, so when the opportunity arose to partner with House of Fraser a couple of weeks ago, it wasn’t a hard decision to pick out this gorgeous ‘peasant style’ tie up shift dress. I’ve never heard of a ‘peasant’ dress either, but apparently that’s what this is called!
The dress itself is so easy to wear, it’s comfortable and maintains the appearance that you’ve made more effort than you actually have (I think anyway).
And of course, I can’t talk about the outfit without mentioning these sandals from Daniel Footwear. Although they’re pretty high (and I usually steer clear of anything over 4 inches in height because I’m clumsy), they’re surprisingly easy to walk in due to the wedge. I love the blend of gold, beige and brown and I can’t wait to wear them on my upcoming girlie holiday to Greece in September! I’m probably not doing them much justice in these photographs but in reality, they really are probably the most stunning pair of sandals that I’ve ever owned.

The site itself has some really lovely shift dresses, so even if you don’t like this pattern – I’d definitely recommend a nose!
Admittedly, this is a little bit big for me and it did swallow me until I tied it up at the waist but I’m so used to picking up a 12 when shopping that I didn’t account for the fact I might be smaller now I’ve lost weight. Partly due to my operation (which I may talk about in due course) and partly due to my diet changes, I’ve lost two stone in total which I can’t believe – and it’s probably cost me a dress size. I think the hardest part is probably keeping it off though, so I’ll let you know how this pans out!
Do you like paisley prints? What do you think of the sandals?
