If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?



I am obsessed with smock dresses at the moment. I saw this on asos when I was looking for a dress for my brother's wedding and, although it is so wrong for any kind of wedding, I cheekily bought it anyway because I lurrve it. Asos have a fab collection at the moment so I'd say that if you fancy a smock, it's the place to look :)

Dress: Asos / Shoes: Old Kew / Necklace: Not on the Highstreet / Sunglasses: Old Topshop (similar here) / Nails: 'Rainy Day' from Topshop
Because this dress has a really comfy, oversized style (believe it or not I'm actually wearing an XS here), I feel a bit like a small child when I'm wearing it and want to run around bare foot with my limbs flying all over the place (thankfully for everyone, I restrained myself).  I've gone for quite subtle accessories here but I'm also looking forwards to wearing it with sandles and and a chunky necklace when I'm away, and hopefully it will look much better with a tan too. Oo and maybe a floppy hat...? Oh dear, you'll be able to spot the Brit a mile off!
