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!

My last post may have been all about autumn clothing, but I am still well and truly focused on summer clothes with only a week to go until our fortnight in France. The sales may be in their final stages, but there are still bargains to be had - last week I picked up this embroidered smock dress from Mango for my holiday:
I'd had my eye on it all season and couldn't believe it when I saw it in the sale as it's been so popular. It is still available in small sizes at ASOS, but has sold out everywhere else. I love the woven cotton material and the stunning embroidery detail. Here I am wearing it this week - such an easy breezy dress for the beach and I will wear it as a tunic over skinny jeans when the holidays are over:
Yes, the other sales purchase was the fabulos yellow bowling bag from Boden:
This was a very planned purchase, again something that I had admired all season, and at half price in the sale, it would have been rude not too! It's the perfect size and the leather is so soft. I didn't take it to the beach, but I do love it with the Mango dress as there is yellow in the embroidery:
Have you made a final sales purchase or are you looking ahead to autumn?
