Scratch Spots

I wasn't sure if I was going to share this outfit with you or not, I am just not sure about it.  I love the pattern of the dress but even in a size 10 it is just too big round the waist and not that flattering IRL, I actually think it looks better in the photos.  Even though it's described as a tea dress it's probably meant to be a bit smock like but we all know my feelings on me in smocks. Urgh.  I don't think the monochrome Converse are helping either.  I do love them but think they are better off being kept for autumn when I can rock them with some black opaques.  I keep mentioning tights, I am getting so exciting that Autumn is now within reach.  I need to be able to wear my amazing new coat really soon! 

 Dress: Topshop
Cardigan: New Look
Converse: Office

To take away from the 'meh' outfit I've included a snap of my current favourite flowers, the hydrangea.  I picked these two plants up for about £3 each, isn't that amazing!  They are so pretty.  Cannot wait to sort out some flower beds in our garden next year and get these planted.  There are some huge hydrangea plants that look like bushes they are so big round the corner from my house and I want to recreate that.  Except they are pink and I will be working hard making sure mine stay blue (did you know you can change them from pink to blue?!)

Yay for a four day week!



  1. your hair, the blue... it all just fits xx

  2. It's really quite striking the blue with the polkdots! Love Hydrangeas, I had these in white for my wedding flowers they were just beautiful x

  3. I love the blue cardigan with this!

  4. I actually love this dress on you - looking cute and fresh!

    Hydrangeas are one of my mum's favourite flowers and I knew that they change colour depending on earth's ph - you can get the earth more acidic on one side of the flower and it will basically change colours! :) My friend also loves them and she had her wedding bouquet done solely with them - beautiful!


  5. Lovely blog! I'm your new follower. I would like you to follow me back. Thanks you!


  6. Ahh I nearly tried this on in Topshop the other day. I love the print but I was worried it would be a bit too smock like for me too. Although from these pictures it looks great on you I think! Love the blue cardi too.

  7. I don't think this is a 'meh' outfit, I love the dress and the blue cardigan goes so well xx

  8. I Love this outfit. Nothing Meh about it at all.
    I love hoe it will easily transition into autumn wear with black tights. Definitely a winner for me!

  9. I really like the dress and I love that shade of blue on you. I've also become slightly obsessed with hydrangers lately. X

  10. It's such a cute dress! If you feel a bit "bleh" in it why not try some colourful shoes to go with it? For a dress that pretty it's definitely worth a try :)

  11. I like this dress, less flared than you normally wear but nice. Would look good with some heels I think x

  12. Pretty plants! I actually think the dress makes you look skinny. I also can't wait to be able to wear tights again!
