Carrie Symonds’ has celebrated another sartorial win, mere weeks after the 31-year-old caused a shopping frenzy with her Downing Street debut in a floral £120 Ghost dress that sold out within hours.

On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, was joined by his girlfriend to host a reception at Downing Street to thank staff from six hospices for their dedication and compassion.

Sharing images on the Prime Minister’s Twitter page, the duo were seen chatting and laughing with staff - Carrie standing out in a summer-ready yellow and white gingham shirt dress.

The most recent of Carrie’s high street hits was from Whistles and is still available to purchase for £159 on the Whistles website, as well as on John Lewis and Next.

The description of the flattering midi dress reads: “This shirt dress comes in a classic silhouette that cinches in at the waist, before falling to a full skirt in a mid length. It has been crafted from a breathable cotton blend that is perfect for summer days and we love the yellow checked design.”

“Perfect summer dress! Love the colour, material and shape. Would definitely buy in other colours” reads another.
