My crazy, hectic, manic [insert your own choice of synonym which basically means “my life is so mental I’m constantly running around like a headless chicken” here] lifestyle means that more often than not, events and occasions come up at the last minute. Or, I just don’t have time to head out and find something perfect to wear because of the 3958383 things to do on my never ending to do list. And this, nearly every single time, results in a floordrobe, followed by manic whatsapps to the girls along the lines of “I have absolutely no clothes” (whilst standing in a room full of them), and then a manic dash to my favourite go-to store which never fails to disappoint every single time.
Said upcoming event that I “have nothing to wear” for, a rooftop Summer Party. Said store that always has my back every single time… Topshop.
Topshop is a brand that I have spent far too much time – and money, oops – in over the years and it’s still a place that I can’t stop going back to. From perfect basics to cool casual wear to the perfect dresses for any occasion, it is always my first port of call whenever I have an occasion to dress for.
If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have developed a very strong love of ruffles. Ruffle tops, ruffle hems, ruffle jumpers… you name it, I have been buying/snapping/declaring my love for it. Which is why when I wanted a Summer party dress that needed to be glam but understated, smart but not too much.. I knew it had to be a ruffle dress and I knew I needed to head down to The Mothership. Otherwise known as Topshop (also known as Toppers to the cool kids).
So I found the perfect dress… and then proceeded to bore everyone to death over how much I loved it but the thing is, it’s just so damn comfortable. It’s stretchy, it accommodates a hefty bread basket and a prosecco with the girls, it’s super ridiculously comfortable but thanks to the gorgeous ruffle running down the side of the dress looks so much more sophisticated and chic. It really does turn what is actually quite a simple dress into a little bit more of a statement (without being too much). I also adore the shoulder detail on the right side which just adds a little somethin somethin and is also super flattering.
So in case you couldn’t tell, I am obsessed with this ruffle dress. I am obsessed with the outfit. I am obsessed with Topshop. The thing is, I just love knowing that I have somewhere to go that I can always rely on, it takes away the panic of last minute events and gives you the buzz of confidence that your outfit always looks good. Whatever the occasion, Topshop always has a dress for it. So here’s to many more summer parties and dresses that dreams were made of, to come!
