Apricot Online Review..

It has been another busy, busy week here. Thursday again already! Nearly the weekend. I’m not sure where my time goes? I have lots of jobs around the house that need starting or finishing. Sometimes I think I am busy doing nothing!?! I am bit of a time waster though. 2 hours yesterday shopping for plastic boxes to put all the shoes and trainers in. Did we really need them!?! Grr I think I need a time management course. Are you good with time management?

Yesterday I found some me time and got dressed up in my lovely new dress that I had delivered last Friday. I had been looking forward to wearing it all week, then again, I was finding the right time to style it up. I had a lovely relaxing morning and also found time to do my hair and make up.

Just about covering my bruised and cut lips from where the dustbin lid flew up and hit me in the face on Tuesday in all that wind. Note to self, always hold the dustbin lid down when taking in around the back after being emptied on a windy day. I came out bad but I think the lid came off worse, lol it had a dint in the tough plastic lid!! Thankfully the mouth is one of the quickest places to heel, so nearly all better now.

A few week ago I was introduced to a lovely website called Apricot Online. I was very pleased to be asked if I would like to review something from their website. They sell a wide range of key trend ladies fashions. Everything you need for your Spring/Summer wardrobe. As soon as I seen this Navy polka dot dress I knew this was the dress for me. Polka dots make me pop and I love the white and navy together. A perfect dress for mixing up too, maybe a red belt and red shoes!?!

Navy Polka Dot Print White Belted Structured Dress:

  • Sleeveless navy structured dress with polka dot print, round neck and thin white detachable belt.
  • 97% Cotton, 3% Elastane
  • Hand wash
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Do not dry clean
  • Colours : Navy or Coral
  • Price £30.00

After putting on a bit of weight on since getting an injury whilst out running, I decided to go for a bigger size in this dress. A little more room rather that being tight.

If you read my blog often you will know I love my polkas dots!! Ha!! and bright tight too. I thought they would both go together nicely. So here is my favourite look of the moment. I teamed the dress up with mustard tights and white shoes and really love this look. Not forgetting the polka dot sunglasses too.

I also have my eye on a stunning floral black maxi dress on their website. A beautiful dress for warm summer nights out. If you love maxi dresses as much as I do it is worth checking this one out.

I was kindly sent a dress to review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post.

    Lovely dress, and those tights are amazing. I used to wear coloured tights every day but for whatever reason I lost a bit of confidence. You look great!x#pocolo

      Aww thank you Betty. I sometimes feel a little silly in them when I get some funny looks, but mostly ok!

    Gorgeous dress! It would be great for a barbecue or garden party. I think you could even get away with it for a wedding!. I love these kinds of ladylike dresses, I'd be tempted to put a giant pink belt around the middle :-)BobbyannexxxxPromisingBeauty.blogspot

    What a fun look! I have an itch to rock a pair of bold tights. Not sure I can pull it off like you do! Stopped by Via Street Style Sunday.
