Simply Be and Exeter

Hello there,

Well, this is the final post from my trip down to Devon. It won't be the last time I'm down there though this year as we have links to Okehampton and like to be in that area of the world as often as possible.

I was so pleased when I heard that Simply Be were opening a store in Exeter. The nearest store to me previously was the Oxford Street one which I still haven't had time to visit yet. So knowing I was in Devon for a week, it would be rude not to pop into Exeter and make the Devon branch of Simply Be my first store to visit.

Firstly though, a detour to the quay side for a rummage around the antique centre and a hot chocolate

Now, a quick confession. For some reason, I thought the Simply Be store was in the new Princesshay shopping area. Well, not quite. Cue a fair bit of confused wandering around until we spotted it on the High Street.

Confession number two - did I take a photo of the shop front? Nope, I just squeaked and ran inside. I'm a truly organised blogger.

I did however take some photos in the changing rooms (huge changing rooms - lovely). I'd had my eye on some items from the website so I made a beeline for these to try on.

First up was the Boho Tunic dress. The colours are amazing, but I've never been very successful with tunic dresses in the past. I feel that they make me look blocky and square and I felt the same way in this one

So as much as I loved the colours, that went back.

Next up was the lace up babydoll summer dress. Now this nearly came home with me, despite not looking much like the picture. But it was just too short at the back. I think if it ever ends up in the sale though, I wouldn't think twice about buying it.

I'm sure I tried more on, but I seem to have only photographed some (note the concentrating face). Last up was the burnt out floral top in black. Now, I have to admit that I have a quite a few of these style of tops in various colours, but not black.

I fell in love with this straight away. I had a green camisole on but the whole look can be changed just by changing the base colour. This top came home with me and has already been worn lots.

The staff in-store were lovely and so helpful. They advised that this top came up small so I was glad I'd tried it on before ordering online.

Guess where I'll be heading back to in a couple of months?

Thanks for reading

  1. I love the burnt out black top. I have a couple of simply be stores close to me and never find anything I love enough to buy. But might have to try and hunt one out x
