Green and gold...

I have raved about French Connection several times over on this corner of the internet and this dress was from my recent splurge in their sale (P.S. it is still on sale here!). I really love the geometric print and the retro shape is oh so flattering! Until I was seduced by skater dresses, I was a massive fan of tea dresses and this may have rekindled my love affair with them. I was going to go more retro with the styling but I thought a sharp bob would look better than my usual curls and it made it feel a bit more work-y too. I may have a relaxed dress code but I do like to dress up every now and again! I thought I had managed to share all of my outfit posts from the old flat but this one managed to slip through the net and even though I have worn it since I didn't manage to take any more pictures!

Dress: French Connection, belt: Miss Selfridge, shoes: New Look
Just look how jazzy that print is! This gorgeous green 'Aqua Marine' Max Factor nail varnish is my absolute favourite at the moment and is way more interesting than my usual pink and coral shades. I am counting down the days to Autumn so this is giving me a fix until the weather cools down...


I must admit, I didn't realise just how short this skirt was until I wore it all day, luckily I had my little lacy shorts on underneath as otherwise I would be very self conscious otherwise! I love these gold wedges, I planned to throw them out in the great wardrobe clear-out when we moved but they survived another day! The pale gold colour is super flattering and the wedge is comfy enough to wear all day, they may just be the perfect summer shoes!


Any ideas where I can get my hands on some tea dresses?

You can never go wrong with a bit of French Connection. All their stuff is so pretty. I love this dress - such a great pattern on it.

Love the dress and it certainly doesn't look too short for the office. I think it's fab.
