I’ve always been a fan of denim (who isn’t?) but recently it seems to have developed into something more. Every time I go into a shop I’m drawn to the denim section. I’m steering clear of jeans at the moment, my mum tum is not quite ready for those yet, and skirts can be a bit hit and miss as to how well they fit, but denim dresses, I just can’t get enough! Maybe it’s because I’m on maternity leave and without having to look formal for work I’m embracing a more casual style.
Despite already having three denim dresses in my wardrobe I have recently bought four more and it’s taking all my self control not to order any more, especially when there are some lovely ones out there at the moment (and whilst the sales are on).
Below are my four recent purchases. Three of the four were sales bargains and are now out of stock but one is still available from Oasis
Clockwise from top left: Marks and Spencers Limited Edition, Warehouse, Fat Face, Oasis £45 (still available to buy).
I bought the dresses in a size 10, partly to spur me on to lose a few pounds and because I didn’t want to end up with dresses that would (fingers crossed) be too big after this summer. The Fat Face dress has already had lots of wear though as the shape of it means is hides my wobbly belly. So far I’ve been wearing it with a t-shirt and my Toms but I’ll be wearing it in winter with tights and a jumper underneath.
Like I said before despite my recent purchases (I did buy a denim shirt in the New Look sale too) I am still drawn to the dresses in blue, and my favourite place to browse for them is ASOS. A lot of the denim dresses out there can get a bit samey but I love that at ASOS they have a variety of styles to choose from all in one place. Here are my top 8:
- ASOS Denim Bardot Off Shoulder Dress (£35)
- ASOS Denim Smock Dress (£35)
- ASOS Denim Soft Wrap Mini Dress (£38)
- Warehouse Sleeveless Denim Dress (£49)
- Warehouse Cami Button Through Denim Dress (£45)
- New Look Button Thru Denim Dress (£22.99)
- ASOS Denim Maxi Shirt Dress (42)
- ASOS Denim Cold Shoulder Dress (£16 – currently in the sale)
I could quite happily order all of those dresses but am restraining myself before I earn myself the nickname “The Girl In The Denim Dress!”
Are you a fan of denim? Please tell me it’s not just me.
