Oranges and lemons...

For a few glorious hours, I could put my sunglasses back on and pretend I was back in Italy. I actually wore this dress when I was away but when the sun came out I pulled it out of the wardrobe again. Paired with my favourite summer shoes, it was probably my cheeriest outfit to date...

Dress: Dorothy Perkins, shoes: Clarks, sunglasses: Accessorize, watch: Guess
The shape of this dress is one I tend to favour with its nipped in waist and swooshy skirt but the pattern is not something I would usually choose, I don't tend to like things that are too direct a rip off of the catwalks and this was definitely inspired by that Stella McCartney show but it's pretty fun and looks great in the sunshine too...


For someone who never used to wear yellow, I sure have a lot of it! These shoes from Clarks are so comfy and such a talking point you would be crazy not to buy them (especially when they are on sale!)

Watch: Guess via Sherin 
Still in love with my watch despite my initial misgivings. I always find the things I am slightly ambivalent about are always the ones I become completely attached to (case in point a ridiculously unflattering gold Gap cardigan which is still floating around somewhere, rips and all...)
I'm worth it...
Outtake of the day: trying to flip my hair out of my face, I'm not sure I could look much more ridiculous!

What outfits put a smile on your face? Do you have clothes that are blatant catwalk rip offs?

Definitely one of my favourite outfits from you! I love the colour and the print on you. So pretty! And I'm so glad the watch went to a loving home!!

I think that's the prettiest thing I've ever seen you wear and it suits you so well. It's stunning. I would have had no idea it was a catwoalk rip off if you hadn't said because I'm oblivious to things like that.
Lovely.

This is a lovely outfit! I love the warmer weather purely for the brighter colour trends. I'm already counting down the days until next spring!! x

Aww I love the print on that dress, it's really adorable! Love the yellow heels too and the size of that watch is so dainty and lovely!

You look so lovely in yellow Maria! The print is really great, it reminds me of dresses my gran had in the 50's, I think even though it was inspired by the Stella collection it's not really that much of a rip off because that kind of print has been around forever, it's very classic looking! :) I love your yellow heels too, the scalloped edging is so pretty.
