Spring Treat

I have previously mentioned on Twitter that I am on a self imposed spending ban, because I have bought far too much stuff recently so thought it best to cut back a bit. Now this is very hard for me as I can't stress enough how much I love to shop so you can imagine my delight when I remembered I had an unused New Look gift voucher from Christmas- yipeee!!!

As my local New Look store no longer stocks the Inspire Range I chose to order something online which is the first time I have ever done this as I do prefer to try clothes on but hey ho they can always be returned.

I tried out the click and collect service as it meant I didn't have to pay for delivery and as I knew I would be out and about today having a lovely lunch to celebrate my sons 6th Birthday I arranged to collect my order today.

I took me ages to choose something as there was a lot of choice but in the end I plumped for a lovely floral dress and on trend military style jacket, I took a chance with the sizing and opted for a size 20 in both as I always worry about fitting my top half in especially with dresses!

Having tried both items on I could have probably got away with the 18, but at the extra room in the dress and coat allow for freedom of movement and mean I can wear them with layers. The only thing that would have made the dress even more perfect would have been pockets!!! 
I teamed my dress with my current favourite disco leggings from Primark and also tried it with a denim jacket which I bought last year also from New Look.
I love the jacket as it has an elasticated back which you can also adjust on the inside so I have been able to pull it in to give more definition around my waist.

Overall I am really pleased with what I chose and the found the whole order and collection process very efficient and I would use it again. The only downside is having to take a gamble with which size to order but then that is always the same with online shopping.

Now I am just looking forward to some warmer weather so I can go out in my new dress!
