(Blouse: Glamorous at Topshop; Dress and shoes: Topshop; Bag: Sophie Hulme; Watch: Michael Kors)
You know when you're doing one of those casual wanders round a shop and you've seen a few things that you liked, but not enough to buy them, so you rationalise that if you find one item that screams buy me I complete you you can justify buying the others? That's how this dress came home with this blouse. The dress is the more figure-hugging (read: size up if you have hips and wear a slip underneath to avoid flashing your thigh inbetween the buttons...learned that the hard way) sister by another mister of my beloved ASOS pinafore dress, in a darker wash with a finished hem. I love the ASOS one more, but I love this shade of denim, especially with flashes of burgundy. Which, helpfully, this wonderful blouse has! It's also completely see-through so will require a vest-top to wear on its own, but the adaptable ties at the neckline mean it doesn't need to be as off-shoulder as its original fastening suggested, so you can hide those straps. Problem solved into next season!
