Handsy...

Even though I loved this jazzy work dress, this here is a more typical work outfit for me. However much I love the look of heels, I just can't wear them on a day-to-day basis (although I admire anyone who can!) I never thought I would buy a drop-waist dress but I have been trying to break out of my sartorial comfort zone recently and this jazzy little dress from Monki (where else?!) was the perfect introduction to a less fitted style. I really love the mini hand prints that make up the pattern and it is one of the comfiest dresses I own. I imagine you will be seeing a lot more of this one!

Cardigan: Tesco, dress: Monki, tights: Tesco, shoes: New Look
When it gets colder, I plan on layering this dress up with long sleeves and knee high socks, much like I did with this dress (can you believe how long my hair is here?!) I did toy with adding a belt to this outfit to prevent looking like a sack of potatoes but hopefully I look relaxed rather than pregnant!


Just look at those teeny little hands! I am trying to use up my massive collection of lipsticks and I was pleasantly surprised by this rosy Kate Moss lipstick, I forgot how much I liked it! I tend to go for brighter shades but sometimes a neutral just looks that little bit more polished...


The print hides the drop-waist but you can see just how much extra material there is here! I love how the watch matches perfectly too, experimentation is all very well but there are some things that will never change! 


Have you got any drop-waist dresses?

N'aw the print and the dress are super cute! I tend to stay well away from a drop-waist as I'm fairly hourglass in figure, and I do in fact look like a sack of potatoes, for this reason, I am suitably envious of your vision of loveliness and the awesome dress.

I really need to start shopping at Monki! The print is so sweet and I love the colour.

I have seen the brand on some blogs but I only went into the store for the first time on Saturday.
