Pretty Warehouse Summer Dress (And Passion4Fashion Link Up!)


 Warehouse is a brand i have been buying since i started earning a wage. It is a brand i love year after year and love to buy special pieces from each seasons release. I have collected a lot of Warehouse Dresses over the years as this store is by go-to for pretty frocks. 
The dress I was wearing when i my now-husband and I first kissed was a beautiful Warehouse dress that i still own ( I always remember these things, special outfits; what i was wearing for those occasions, and that was before the immortalising wonder that is Instagram!)
I remember a few years back I was attending a big Italian wedding shindig, and well i wanted to look amazing. After a day out shopping in Bath and going to every store you could think of i found my beautiful dress in Warehouse of course, and i still have it and still love it as much(even though its about 2 sizes to big haha!) 
So when a brand like this asked if I would like to pick a dress, well i sure as heck jumped at the chance. 
I have to be honest, it took me forever to choose as there are just so many beautiful dresses!!!!
Tropical, tribal, neon and florals. 
Maxi's, mini's and everything in between.
In the end, after much deliberation, i chose Midi Summer Dress due to the fact i thought i could get a lot of wear out if it this summer(hopefully).
Thankfully the weather has heard my plea's and little old Wales has been basking in the beautiful warm sunshine the past couple of days.
And so, enter the perfect dress....


 The dress is SO dreamy (could i gush any more about it? Probably not haha!)
It's floaty, twirly and IT HAS POCKETS!
Ladies, it sure is a beauty!
Keeping it simple i added my staple summer denim jacket and a pop of red and i could not be happier, flicking my curls and my dress in the warm summery breeze.

  1. Morning pretty lady - and what a way to end the week with this gorgeous dress! Such a beautiful colour (and pattern) on you, it goes so well with your hair. You made such a good choice...! Funnily enough my oldest pair of trousers are from warehouse - still fit me after about 15 years!!

    Thanks for hosting as always, have yourself a great weekend Rachel :)

  2. That's a particularly nice dress Rachel, I love the graphic sort of pattern, and the shoes you chose to pair with it are very elegant. So nice that everyone's getting their legs out now too! P x

  3. I love this dress and your photos make it look even better. I have a few Warehouse dresses which are all now too big for me as they're from years ago. I have just taken delivery of a wonderful lace coat from them, which I can't wait to wear, though.

  10. I took a look at Warehouse's website and I have to agree that it must have tough to choose. There are so many pretty, floaty, twirly, breezy dresses. But I think you picked the right one because it looks just so amazing on you, Rach. Not everyone can pull off a midi length, but you make it look effortless :) Now, if you could get them to come to the states, please, it'd be fantastic.
