Collars and stripes...

You might have seen on my various social media that Poppy is a little poorly. Nothing serious, just a virus, so I'm a bit occupied elsewhere. It's half term this coming week and I have some uni deadlines looming too, so I will of course try my hardest to update the blog, but it might be a little sparse! 

In the mean time I took these pics a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post them. So here they are! I picked up this fab dress in the Simply Be sale. It's got a real 60s vibe about it. It's super easy to just thrown on and instantly look smart. 

I sized up to the 24 in this. I don't think I needed too, but I wanted it to sit in a nice A-line 60s shape so it was important it didn't cling too much. The material is nice and weighty and the dress is a good length. You can pick it up in the Simply Be sale for £25 and it looks like all the sizes are available! 

I just teamed mine with black tights and loafer shoes, but this would look really cute with coloured tights and ankle boots or leggings and pumps. Add a biker jacket to toughen the look up.

  1. Love it! Where do you get your tights from?! Looking for some decent ones that don't cost the earth and don't roll down my belly ha ha x

  2. I love this! Very chic! Gemcha - tip with tights is to put a pair of knickers/shorts/controlwear over them to stop them rolling down! Thats what I do!


Thank you for your comment, I love reading what everyone has to say! B x
