(Dress: C/O Next, Belt: Acessorize)

So, Happy Birthday Next you cheeky thing! As long as I can remember the brand have played a significant part in my wardrobe, from when I was growing up and my mum used to have the 10000 page catalogue delivered (to which I'd cut out things I liked and stick them upon any hard surface) to browsing their fantastic range of home ware for my latest bedroom revamp. So, when the brand got in touch regarding their 30 pieces for 30 years collection; I was pretty excited. Having already purchased their burgundy leather skirt I jumped at the chance to try this Middleton-esque pencil dress (is that even a term? Is now!) which oozes ladylike-loveliness!

I decided to team the dress with one of my favourite new belts to clinch in the waist a little more, and although you can't see any shoes here- would team it with some elegant black courts- but would equally like to try it with cool ankle boots and a leather jacket, non?

To see how the other ladies styled their pieces- check out their links below!

  30. After not having bought anything from Next for a while, I rediscovered it while on the hunt for placement clothes, and snapped up the pencil skirt in this floral print! For a moment I thought the dress was a blouse and skirt but it's just an all-in-one super-stylish outfit! And it looks gorgeous on you! Did you find the sizes came up big at all? I'm normally a 12 but was a 6-8 in the skirt - not complaining, just a little bizarre! Love!xxx
