smitten with smocks

27/05/2013


what i'm wearing:
ASOS floral smock dress
MAC lipstick in chili
initial disc necklace
daisy anklet via eBay
primark sandals
MK watch

i really wish i'd put my hair in a messy plaited wreath than rather having it down for this outfit (note: totally did it when i went out). i'm doing the best to banish the brassiness in my hair so i've put my total faith in using silver shampoo treatment. i've only used it a couple of times so far and it isn't enough to make a judgement but i think it is helping a little bit. anyway this is one of the dresses i picked up when ASOS had there 20% off promotion for students. even though i'm no longer a student i still have my login on UNIDAYS so i thought i'd take my advantage so i got myself a couple of things. i don't know why i love smock dresses so much especially when they do nothing for your figure i just think there's something great about not having to worry about how you look in an outfit. the print is an absolute beaut, vintage florals is a print i always enjoy wearing. the lace up detail on the back is just an extra bit of detail that completely sells this dress to me. i bought this in the smallest size (size 6) because i already knew a couple of people that had gotten these and told me just how oversized they were. if you wanted this to be more of a fitted, i'd say if you were 10-12 the size 6 would be perfect for you, otherwise you'll just have to wear it how i am. finally, i love my sandals i purchased recently from primark. i got them both in tan and black as they are at the bargain price of £12. perfect for summer.

i'm feeling incredible fragile today. considering i only had five drinks last night and was home by twelve i really just can't get my head around it. totally had to go work this morning too, that was not fun at all. i can't wait to get home and have a bath and just sleep it off. i'm so not cut out for the party lifestyle.
