As you may have seen from my recent Instagram posts, Mark and I are moving house! We have found a lovely flat and are moving at the beginning of July. As you can imagine, we have a lot of stuff to sort so our weekends and evenings have been pretty hectic recently, hence the lack of blogging. Hopefully things will calm down soon as I miss reading (and commenting on) everyone's posts. This Monki dress was a sales bargain from a while ago and I hadn't worn it until last weekend as I was a little worried about how sheer it is. Luckily when I was in Edinburgh I managed to find some of H&M's infamous lace trimmed cycling shorts that meant this dress was good to go. The slits in this mean that this will definitely be a weekend dress, it is a little too risqué even for my office's dress code!
|Dress: Monki, shorts: H&M, shoes: H&M, belt: New Look|
I have been trying to wear less make up day to day and although I have successfully weaned myself off my foundation and onto my beloved BB cream (ILU Dr Jart!) I rarely go bare-faced. My skin has been slightly better though so I just brushed my eyebrows and added some moisturiser hence the slightly more washed out look than normal. I don't think this will be a regular thing but it's good to know that the world won't stop if I forgo mascara ;)
I'm not convinced that this midi length is massively flattering on me but it's perfectly floaty for the warm weather! The best part about sorting through all your stuff is rediscovering old favourites and I was so chuffed to uncover these H&M peep toe flats, I wore them to death when I was at uni!
I love the tie dye effect of this print and it is surprisingly wearable thanks to the black elements of it. My trusty black belt was pulled out of the box we had packed it into as this dress is pretty shapeless without it and I can't resist adding one, I blame Gok Wan and one too many episodes of 'How to Look Good Naked' for my belt obsession!
