I have a gorgeous dress that I got for pennies (thank you so much to whoever linked to it on here) from the Great Plains sale. I wear it with boots and leggings to work ( I teach so smart but not too formal dress code). I need a new dress, I'd love a similar smart jumper dress, comfy, works with black boots, can't find anything!

Me too....I've been looking for ages I think they're like hen's teeth!

How tall are you? I buy long jumpers (or the dreaded tunics) in M&S and wear them as dresses!

I wear them with tights, not leggings, though.

I'm 5'4" ish, so fairly short..

I'm so gutted I didn't get the Great Plains one in both colours.. It was £6!!
The only ones I've seen recently are chunky knit so too casual.

This sounds like the sort of thing I'm looking for, anyone got any photos?

Not sure what I'm going to do when it gets warm? I've lived in boots for months and months.

I recently ordered this dress but unfortunately it was too small so had to return it. It was nice though.

I am 5 foot 1, and I have knitted dresses from boden and white stuff.

There was a gorgeously soft dove grey jumper dress in Monsoon today.

I don't know if it is to your taste, but the greenhouse tunic in white stuff could be worn as a dress with navy opaques.

Just ordered the HoF one, thank you xx smile

I've got the great plains one too (the red and blue one) after seeing it on here. It's great smile

I recently bought this in Monsoon which is similar

I wear knitted dresses/tights/boots most of winter. My favourite ones are from White stuff, White Company, Sainsburys (not wool though!). I get disappointed when the weather changes in summer, as I never know what to wear then!

I just bought a gorgeous short sleeved knitted dress from Sainsburys?
