Back On The Grid

As ya'll know, I bloody love a sale and I am more than happy to report that this gorgeous number is still available in the huge Simply Be sale!


Dress - Simply Be, Kimono - ASOS Curve, Socks - Primark, Sandals - ASOS, Beanie - Charity Shop.

I have lusted after this dress for so long! I umm'ed and ahh'ed about whether or not I could pull of a dropped waist until one day I thought, I like it, so I'm going to bloody get it and i am more than glad that I did! It's gorgeous! The dropped hem is so flattering, the little pleat in the skirt adds a cute feminine touch and the material super soft and durable. If you carry weight (like me) around your belly, definitely size up just to allow a little extra belly wiggle room! As soon as I received this dress I knew it would be great to wear to work and also to style up in the 'Sports Luxe' theme - a big trend that is still very much around, a long with the grid print trend that is set to be huge this year! 

Now although I would, in most circumstances, very much shun socks and sandals there is the occasional exception that can be made!



If you get a great pair of flat or heeled sandals and the right pair of socks, believe it or not, it can really work! It adds a quirky twist to any outfit and can work dressing up or dressing down! These socks cost me £1 from Primark and I love them - they fit perfectly with this outfit, adding a practical Winter edge to these summery sandals! 
 

I also think that adding a little OTT makeup to this 'Sports Luxe' trend works really well. I've over exaggerated my eyeliner and added a super simple soft pink lipstick! I am also so in love with this plain beanie - it actually belongs to my lovely man but as soon as I tried it on, I knew I would be pinching it. I'm usually not a hat person, because I honestly have a huge head haha, so any stretchy hat I find that I like, I am all over it!

Lots Of Love,
