To fully understand this week’s post you really need to see my video that supports my latest shopping day.
I went out and about in MK1, a shopping destination in Milton Keynes, that has Primark, New Look, River Island, Outfit, NEXT, H&M and M&S, so a good variety of shops.

Here are some fabulous items that I’ve found in M&S this week, a brand that is struggling at the moment to engage a lot of women in their latest collection, below are four items that I think are lovely, I hope you do too.
Pink Short-sleeved Knit with Lace
Per Una Collection
I have searched several times online for this at M&S and I cannot find it – but I’ve seen it in two stores so just head to their Per Una section. I tried it on and it’s lovely. I highly recommend that you invest in a pink bra to go under, I had nude and you could see it very clearly. This would look fabulous with linen trousers, white jeans or a denim skirt – so versatile. Sizing true to size.
Per Una Collection
I didn’t try this on, but you can see it in my film, this is gorgeous. We have summer days where you simply cannot get away without a blazer or light jacket and I think this would be perfect. Also if you were going to a less formal wedding or perhaps a Christening. A statement piece for sure!
Spotted Ruffle Maxi Skirt
You can see me twirling in this one in the film, I loved this! Very tempted to get this after payday for sure. Frills and Spots are two trends that are very popular this summer. You can dress this up for work or you can make it more edgy with trainers and a denim jacket for the weekend. Again another versatile item which will add value to your summer wardrobe. it’s a 10/10 from me. I recommend to size down one if you are ordering online.
Tie Waist Kimono Wrap Dress
Available in Pink, Ivory White, Navy and Yellow
I first tried this on in white and really didn’t like it at all. There is no lining to this dress and it does have this annoying 2-inch flap of material especially about the V shape neckline that you need to get flat or you can easily see.
Then the following day I saw it in pink and thought I would have another go and it was so much better – which gives me confidence to say that navy and yellow should be fine too.
The white however I recommend to avoid as you can see the pockets and you’ll need to wear a slip – but don’t forget this is a much lower priced dress at £29.50. It’s a shame because I thought the white was very SJP from Sex and the City, which is why I tried it on!
MY OUTFIT OF THE WEEK:
This was from last Saturday when I was heading into London, I wanted more of a London look and so toughened up my & Other Stories leopard print dress with my Stan Smiths and my army Hush jacket – which is fab, as it means I’m getting more wear out of this dress than when I first bought it, as I thought I could only wear out-out!
