The Best Summer Dresses & My Fashion Talk At Topshop

Dress / Hair by Conor at Sassoon

It's not every day you're invited to host a talk for your incredible followers at one of your favourite stores. In April, that happened and I was pretty excited. Well, a mixture of nerves, excitement and everything rolled into one. I headed into Topshop in Leeds more times than anyone should the week prior to my event, picking out my favourite dresses and accessories and prepping for the weekend. I invited my followers to come down, relax, chat with me about my favourite styles this season all whilst nibbling on some delicious brownies. I'm so excited to give you a little look at what went down on the day of my meet up and talk, but also, show you two of my favourite new dresses for Spring. I really am in love.

On Sunday, I headed straight into Topshop personal shopping (you may remember my blog post in December all about personal shopping in Topshop). It's one of my favourite things to do plus it's complimentary for anyone in store. The girls in there truly are amazing, whether you've got a special occasion coming up or you just fancy treating yourself, you can send the girls in the personal shopping suite an email prior to your booking and they can select pieces for you, or, you can chooser things from the website and get them to grab them for you. It's also perfect for the girl on the go, if you're wanting to pop in and try ten things on, the girls will pull it all for you. The girls kindly got my selection of dresses together ready for my talk and I styled them up in there before my talk.

Something I wanted to focus heavily on when talking to the girls who joined me on the day was the bridesmaid range. Topshop's bridesmaid range absolutely blows me away. It's about time the high street started making on-trend bridesmaid dresses and I'm beyond in love. The quality is amazing, they're affordable for bridesmaid dresses too. I fell in love with the slinky floral maxi above and the styles below, I love the fishtail bottom of the pink floaty dress too. I couldn't not mention the embroidered maxi dress, it's such a gorgeous bridesmaid dress, it's elegant and classic. I just wish I had a wedding to attend now! You can shop bridesmaid dresses below and see some of my favourite ones too.

Frills! As I chose to wear a frilly dress (shop my dress online here), I could not resist talking about the frills of the season. I fell in love with this pink number. Shop it online here and both of them below.

Topshop put together the most beautiful area for me. You can shop the dresses I spoke about below, not forgetting the incredible little yellow heels I chose too, which I think would look incredible with the blazer dress. I decided to talk to the girls who came along about my favourite dresses of the season and it's safe to say, I've fallen in love with most of them, as you can see below. P.S, the pinafore and the smock dresses are to die for too! There's so much choice.

It was a total honour to host this event for my followers (anyone was invited!) but it was also an honour to host it in the city I grew up in, Leeds. Topshop is one of my favourite, if not my favourite store so that was pretty exciting. I started by talking about the dresses and then sat down as we just chatted about general life. I wanted to find out what everyones Summer plans were, if they were studying or working and also, what dresses they loved! We all stood up and mingled over the beautiful rail and I'm happy to say, many of the girls went and tried them on and sent my gorgeous snaps of them wearing some of my favourites!

With so much choice on offer at Topshop, I seriously struggled to decide which dress to wear for my event. I ended up going for the green one, but it didn't stop me buying and falling in love with this gorgeous floral tea dress too so I quickly wanted to show you it.

I of course headed to my trusty salon, Sassoon for a blow dry before my event.

 I find tea dresses so flattering, they tie at the waist but then float out at the bottom for such a lovely, girlie look. I couldn't resist grabbing these heels either, they're support comfortable because of the chunky heel and platform but perfect for Summer because of the style and colour. The best bit? They only cost me £35!

Thank you so much Topshop for having me and thank you so much to the wonderful ladies who came along and supported me, I hope you had fun! It means the world to me that you all came. London ladies, I'm hoping to do some events there soon too! Promise! Don't forget to go shop Topshop new in, their pieces always blow me away.

Do you like the look of this event? Do you like the dresses I picked out? Do you like my chosen dresses?
