Palm prints...

Summer for me, is all about maxi dresses and pretty prints so when I saw this dress in H&M, I fell in love. (I may have also bought this one too, oops!) I would never usually go for such a muted colour scheme (bright colours are much more my speed!) but I couldn't resist this gorgeous leafy palm print and I can't wait to wear it all through the summer- wouldn't it look ace with these gold wedges? Even though I just wore this to run some errands at the weekend I felt so glam and it definitely put a smile back on my face. Things have been pretty stressful round here recently with illness and things with family and friends so I have been trying to stay upbeat and just escape from my head for a bit. I have also started doing Yoga with Adriene videos and so far I am loving it, it is a good way to relax, she is fun and not too hippy dippy for me (something that has put me off yoga in the past!)

Dress: H&M, shoes: Marks & Spencer
I even dug out some eyeshadow to wear with this outfit. I have a gorgeous eyeshadow compact with gold and olive shades in that were ideal for a daytime appropriate smoky eye. Another outing for this lovely neutral lip stain too, I promise I don't always wear bright colours! ;) This necklace is slightly lower than I would usually go for but it helps to break up the print a little and makes me feel sassy rather than schlumpy under so much material...


I love the waist tie that came with this too, I am never happy unless I can nip in my waist with a belt, I am worse than Gok Wan! I'm wearing Essie Russian Roulette again here, I seem to just switch between that and Essie's Spin the Bottle at the moment, I'm going to have to branch out soon...


This dress is pretty long but luckily most of my shoes have a little block heel so I was able to skip along quite happily when I wore my favourite rose gold heeled shoes- always a winner in my book!


Are you a fan of palm prints? How do you turn your brain off and unwind?

I could see that print working as a short sleeve shirt, or even shorts, for me. I'd love that. I do yoga too, feel so much better for it too.

The muted colours and longth length look so classy on you. Love it! Sorry to hear things have been stressful with you lately. I took up gentle yoga for similar reasons lately. Although I'm still not fully convinced by it (the whole hippy dippy thing puts me off too) I find the breathing exercises are really effective.
