Friday Favourites 081..

Laura Ashley SS14

Ever since I saw the lookbook for Laura Ashley's SS14 collection, I have started counting down the days until they start to hit the stores, in April. I seem to be holding out for the new ranges to hit the shops as I haven't really bought anything for a while now.

001 and 006: These pretty check dresses are very similar indeed to this checked dress I have from a few years ago. The one in that post no longer fits me, so I either need to alter it or get rid and buy the new ones. When they hit the stores, they will retail at £85.

002: Again, reminiscent of another Laura Ashley boat print dress I already own (and love), but this Sailboat Dress is a different colourscheme, which is different enough for me. Again, this one will be £85.

003: In my opinion, the gem of the whole lookbook; I can't wait for this Map Dress. Let's ignore the fact that I made a map print dress last weekend, because that is totally not the same. This one has whales and pirate ships on it and makes me think of buried treasure. (Again, this will be £85 which frankly is a much better price point than their dresses have been in recent years).

004: This bright pink Garden Cardigan will be £65 when it makes it into stores in April. It's such a lovely, bright base colour and I'm drawn to the contrast between that and the green in the print.

005: The Garden Rose Pencil Skirt caught my eye because of it's fab floral print and classic shape. This, too, will be £65.

I can't wait for some of these, I'm so glad that Laura Ashley is going back to it's 50s style inspiration for these collections, and can't wait to add to my collection..Which is your favourite?


  1. Oh gosh, the map dress and the sailboat dress are both stunning! The check ones are very sweet too :)

  2. Woahhhhh you NEED that map dress. It is definitely not the same. Land map dress is totally different from treasure map dress!

  3. Ohh the map dress is so so beautiful! The sailboat dress is stunning, way out of my price range, but so pretty <3

  5. Oooo,sailboat dress is absolutely to die!I might really need this :-)

  6. Absolutely dying for that map dress! Been stalking the website - let me know if you see it!

  7. Ooh these are all so pretty! I especially love the gingham frocks, but they're all stunning!

  8. So many pretty designs! But that map dress is amazing!


  9. The first dress would look perfect into my closet.


  10. Oh my goodness - the map dress is gorgeous! Hmm am I seriously now thinking of a) spending £85 on a dress & b) shopping in Laura Ashley (which I usually only associate with my mother...)

    I'm completely in love with your map print dress too btw. Where did you find the fabric?

  11. Oh I looooove that map dress, I generally love maps (sadly)! That is a lot cheaper than previous years.

  12. Ooooh, the map and floral print are gorgeous!!
