Hi dolls, I hope you're well! I've had quite an exhausting week with my London exhibition (it's open until 6pm today, and until 3.30pm tomorrow for anyone that would still like to catch it, you'd be totally welcome and I'd love your support!) Also, it's about a week until my birthday, the past month has gone by so quickly! This busy old month has meant I'm accumulating a backlog of outfit posts to share here, which I'm trying to work through starting with something very new: a shift dress and a floppy hat. Enjoy!
Hat - ASOS
Dress - Great Plains*
Boots - Topshop
I've fallen somewhat in love with this ASOS hat after lusting after a floppy hat all summer. There's something about bookending a black hat and boots that makes an outfit feel put-together. Then, alongside my fondly nicknamed 'witch' hat, I thought I'd opt for a witch belt too, for double effect. I've been looking for a new dress shape for a while, something to take over from my recent maxi obsession, and thought I'd dabble with a shift dress (a shape I usually shy away from, as it can be a little boxy on an hourglass shape.) This Great Plains number has such a beautiful, vibrant print that it encouraged me to test the waters, and whilst I did chicken out at the last minute from wearing it loose and free like the shift should be worn, I'm working up the courage to try it! (I should also note that I bought this dress in a size bigger than usual with the intention to wear it as a shift, but if you are buying with the intention to belt the dress I would recommend buying your usual size.) Having never shopped at Great Plains before, I have to say I was really impressed with their range: there were some beautiful prints, and their sale prices were incredible. I'll definitely be shopping there again. Find this outfit on Lookbook here...
I'll leave you with a picture of Tilly stealing the show: look at that little beauty!
