notonthehighstreet monaco u necklace*
primark fluffy oversized cardigan
H&M pork pie hat (only £7.99!)
choies buckle ankle boots*
vintage bag

*note to self* this is why you don't attempt to smile on photos, because you look like a squirrel storing nuts. anyway as you can see i got my hands on the dress that quite a few people went a bit mental for after seeing it posted on ASOS' instagram page. just for future reference for people who like an item posted on their instagram but have trouble finding it on the website, if you look above the picture they usually write the product code. just pop that into the search bar and voilá you will find your item. even though it is part of the petite section, as i have bought a small amount (haha) of smock dresses from ASOS before i know that they can come up quite long in length so if anything i actually prefer it more this length. i got this dress in a size 6; always buy one or two sizes smaller with a smock if you don't want it too oversized. this way it was still baggy but not like i'd popped a bin liner over my head. i paired it with my choies boots which i'd totally forgot i owned (if that isn't the sign of a compulsive spender i don't know what is) and my new fluffy cardigan from primark which everyone on the blogosphere seems to have. who cares though as it's amazing and seriously the warmest thing ever, can't recommend enough for only £12. i just think this dress is a great way of introducing neon into your wardrobe if you are a little nervous of going all out there with it. hope you like.

  10. Such a nice smock! I definitely agree with sizing down, ASOS sizing is soo annoying when it comes to smocks! I love that cardigan, I've seem those on soo many blogs already, they look perfect for throwing over any outfit when it gets a bit chilly, definitely need one!

  21. Many of the smock dresses on ASOS have been hovering in the basket for a while now, but I am loving this one! The neon green and taupe/grey combo looks amazing, and it's definitely now top of my wishlist.

  24. I love the print of this dress, it's so unique! The cardi is amazing too, I saw one exactly the same in New Look for £25 so I'll definitely have to purchase the Primark one.

    1. The coltranes have a thicker heel than I'd like as I prefer flat boots so these are my perfect boots! X

    1. Thank you Essie, :) I used to be like that too but I think it's not too bad in small amounts. X

    2. I love this dress. I can't believe I've missed it online. I'm 5 months pregnant and I've been trying to get away with regular smock dresses that I will be able to wear after the birth. Maternity smock dresses from asos are like tents are really, really long. X
