I never thought that there would come a time when you would find me happily prancing around in a smock dress but apparently that day has come! I found this beauty in the French Connection sale a while ago and I loved it. Realistically it's the opposite of everything that would be flattering on me but that tinge of rebellion makes the smock shape and panniers even more appealing! The first time I wore this dress, I was craving some sunshine but the novelty has well and truly worn off now and I am craving some cooler weather (don't hate me sun lovers!) Inevitably when I am faced with a looser shape, I try and belt it but I resisted and I actually love this look. Slightly out of my comfort zone but very bohemian feeling. I really like how my hair looked here too, every day when I wake up, I thank my lucky stars that I chopped my hair off!

It is so annoying when you notice something in a photo that you can't go back and fix it; my wonky sleeve is now immortalised on the internet forever! You can see the gorgeous embroidery and mesh panels (less scary than it sounds!) here too. It's this kind of detail that elevates it beyond a lot of my cheaper clothes. French Connection always have the prettiest dresses!
These tan Dorothy Perkins sandals are possibly the comfiest heels of all time, I have had them since uni and they always get pulled out when I am looking for a little boost in my step. The heels are low enough for day time but high enough to balance out all of the volume in my skirt from those panniers - milkmaid chic here I come!
What unlikely looks have you rocked recently?
