New Outfit Post - Keeping It Simples With A Stripy Dress

Thought I'd give my new H&M dress an outing today.  I've got a bit of ridiculously busy day at work & a 'to do' list as long as anything so I'm keeping things pretty simple & have just teamed the dress with my metallic slingbacks, a chunky pearl necklace & my Boden pink crossbody bag.




Dress - H&M
Necklace - Zara
Bracelets - Handmade
Bag - Boden
Shoes - Next £26

Have you got a dress that's easy just to throw & comfortable for days like today?  If so I'd love to hear how you accessorise it.

Have a fab day & see you in the morning.

  1. Simple works a treat! I put those Zara pearls on me the other day but I don't think they suit me anymore :-( They look great on you.
    Enjoy your busy day!

    1. Thanks Sharron although I'm thinking it might be too hot for holiday....I hate feeling restricted in clothes & the slightly longer sleeves might leave me too hot & flustered but we'll see!

  4. I have a dress tthat has the same function: it's the j crew raglan dress (http://herestonewbeginnings.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/9-months/) from a few years ago. I use it so much! It's like loungewear but you can easily dress it up with a sparkly necklace or earrings, and heels. On an everyday run I like to wear it with my red flats or hunter boots...I actually wore it through all of my pregnancy and to the hospital when I was in labor!

    1. You're right Sara it's the perfect dress to chill out in or dress up. Love the idea of teaming it with red flats.

  5. I'm hoping to wear the very same dress to my daughter's swim gala tomorrow! Will wear with my new silver Superga's which I am a bit obsessed with at the moment...

  6. I have the same dress and the same dilemma. I bought it for holidays but now think it may be a bit hot with the 3/4 length sleeves. I've tried wearing it in the UK but I think it may be a tad to short.... must be braver!

    1. Hi Breton Lover yes definitely be braver!!! Plus of course it will be great for layering over opaques come the cooler months.
