But I did manage to find some time to catch up with two of my favourite Warwickshire pals, which is always good. They're probably my favourite thing about the county. My second best being the cute shops there.
One of my favourites to visit is Lilac Rose, which is based in Leamington Spa and always have such a great collection of pretty dresses, accessories and homewares. It's one of the shops I always try to make time to stop into when I'm in the area, but that sadly doesn't happen all that often. However, my problems are now solved, as Lilac Rose are now online. With a huge range of dresses including the likes of Emily and Fin, Fever and Trollied Dolly, and free delivery on orders of £65 or more, they're definitely one to add to your favourites bar.
Knowing how much I've been hankering after the Mary dress from Fever, Lilac Rose sent me one to wear to a garden party I have coming up. I think it's just about perfect and will be wearing it this coming weekend. The floral print is just perfect. The dress, although pale, is fully lined so you can wear it without fear of it being see-through. And it's a decent length, which is a refreshing change from a lot of the recent high-street dresses I've seen.
In short, I love it. I also love the attention to detail Lilac Rose put into delivering the dress, which arrived all packaged up in tissue paper. Little details like that are the kind of thing which make me more likely to shop with a site again in the future.
How would you style up the Mary dress? And what's your favourite item from the new Lilac Rose site?
