On moving to Dorset I hoped to end my obsession with buying clothes, imagining my country wardrobe of jeans, wellies, Barbour and even a dog to go with my new look! Instead I love fashion more than ever, wear heels most days and miss city shops despite loving life by the sea. Writing about my fashion finds will hopefully become a replacement for making so many unnecessary online purchases and my husband can finally work from home without being interrupted by the postman!

The YARD Sale is Now On!
It's the sale that all fellow Dorset Fashionistas have been waiting for - local boutique YARD, in Poundbury, Dorchester, has started its summer sale today, and it's a proper sale too, with up to 50% off all items from the spring/summer collection. Here are some of my favourites (all prices are pre-sale, but there is now 40-50% off everything featured).
First up, this easy-to-wear French Connection striped dress would make a very flattering investment (was £65). I also love the short sleeve silky neon top by American Vintage (was £94), and I have my eye on this comfy little floral dress by Maison Scotch which I would use a beach cover up on holiday, I love the beaded collar (was £100).
A maxi dress is a great staple for the summer and I love the bold colours on this one by Great Plains (was £50). The scarf print blouse by Maison Scotch (was £78) is another fantastic sales purchase, I would still wear this in the autum under a little boucle jacket:
Jeans are the ultimate wardrobe staple, so always a bonus if you can pick some up in the sale. Grey is on my wish list for the autumn so I have picked these French Connection skinnies (original price £65). I love grey teamed with yellow and this Soaked in Luxury jumper (was £59) is a lovely vibrant shade. The textured dress by French Connection (was £110) is also a fantastic buy as you can wear it now with bare legs and in the autumn with opaque tights and ankle boots:
I have jeans by Maison Scotch, they are such a great fit, and you would be lucky to pick up a pair in the sale - I love the light wash of the ones below (original price £120). The coral tee is by American Vintage (was £44) and the beautiful Botannical print dress by Maison Scotch (was £112) would be perfect for holidays with a straw bag and leather sandals:
Florals are still a huge trend, so I have picked this very feminine high waisted pencil skirt by Darling (was £49). I would wear with a simple tee like this white one by Great Plains (was £18). I also love the cobalt blue of these Maison Scotch chinos (was £85):
And finishing with my favourite sale outfit. You will know by now how much I love my Breton tops but this one by Maison Scotch (originally £85) is actually a jumper - a fantastic sale bargain in my opinion as you can wear it through the autumn. I'm wearing it with the light wash Maison Scotch jeans featured above and my silver slingbacks from Next. The funky New York scarf and gorgeous grey bag by Nat & Nin are also available at YARD, but are non sale.
This is just a little snapshot of my favourites but of course there are many more gems - if you are local come and have a look for yourself.
Have you managed to get a really good sale bargain this year? I am still deciding whether to get the stripey jumper above. There is only one in my size!
