Monochrome smock dress...

Anyone who has read this blog knows that I am a massive fan of supermarket clothing. I have found some of my favourite clothes alongside my shopping and this dress is my latest favourite. It is such a lovely length and it will be perfect for when the weather warms up again. I sized up as I wasn't sure of the fit (and annoyingly the changing rooms were closed) and it is almost like a smock shape on me. I'm not 100% convinced is flattering but it sure is comfortable!

Dress: Sainsburys, belt: Primark, shoes: Tesco, tights: Tesco

Although I'm a stripes kinda gal, I love this polka dot print and the monochrome makes it perfect for wearing in the office. I haven't worn this belt for ages but it added just enough colour to make it interesting and also cinched in my waist which hopefully makes the dress slightly more flattering. I really admire anyone who can wear an oversized silhouette but it makes me feel far too self-conscious...


These shoes are another supermarket bargain. I love Mary Janes but wearing heels all day is just not practical on a day to day basis so that is when these shiny wedges come in. They are from the 'Sensitive Sole' range and are both shiny and ridiculously comfy, what more could you ask for?! My legs also look super tanned here, I guess my legs aren't the shade of 'natural' that Tesco expects ;)


Have you ever found any sartorial gems in the supermarket?
P.S. I will be sharing proper pictures of my new hairdo soon (eek!) I just need to get Mark to take some outfit pictures for me!

Maria this is SO flattering! Honestly you look beautiful. And I STILL can't get over how amazing your hair looks. I've been growing mine for years but if I ever go short again, I want a 'frillsnspills'! ;)

Don't worry about whether or not that dress is flattering — it is. You are SO gorgeous, and this dress is beautiful on you.

This dress is so lovely. I've tried Tesco and Asda's lines, but not Sainsburys. I need to now for sure!
