End of season Topshop sale scores are fine by me! ¬†I’ll find a way to make maxi dresses wintery so we’re good. ūüôā Well, when I say ‘maxi’ I actually mean ‘supposedly maxi’ or ‘maxi on most people and shin length on me’, but potAYto potAHto, same thing. ¬†Shin length is good too. ¬†Avoids¬†the swishing round your ankles tripping¬†danger that usually comes with longer lengths. ¬†Or is that just me? ¬†Anyway,¬†I tried this one¬†on and loved the fit so much I NEEDED it in both colours – and it was mega reduced so if that’s not a no-brainer then I don’t know what is. ¬†I’ve barely¬†taken it off since then cos y’know, comfy. ¬†And now I’m gonna go change into the orange version.


dress: Topshop | sandals: New Look (black version no longer on website)


Thought I’d split my usual ‘what I’ve been up to this week’ paragraph into 2 (appropriate) categories for this post. ¬†Mix things up a bit.

Things for which I HAVE worn this dress:

London.  With an oversized white shirt and neater hair and humongous tote bag to fit ALL the things.

Train travel. ¬†We all know comfort is where it’s at. ¬†Those seats can be a pain in the… back themselves without uncomfortable clothes thrown into the mix. ¬†She says, pretending not to be someone who’ll endure a tight waistband or suffocating neckline if the outfit deems it necessary. ¬†(I totally will)

Working from home.  Feels like pyjamas; looks like proper clothes.  Win win.

Nipping to the shop and hopefully not looking like I just rolled out of bed. ¬†When the corner shop is literally a 30 second walk away, let’s just say the staff there will see you at your worst.


Things¬†for which I HAVEN’T¬†worn this dress:

Scouting out the new AW fashion.¬† Which, as¬†it’s September next week, I have finally come to accept. ¬†Love love love the 70s style autumn stuff, so I’m happy about that! ¬†Flares are growing on me and I think the day I succumb may be soon. ¬†And I¬†only didn’t wear this dress as that was the day I actually found it, otherwise, I probably would’ve done.

Going for a picnic and getting bitten by flies.¬† Or ants, or some other tiny creature, I’m not entirely sure. ¬†Bites are bloody itchy whatever they come from. ¬†*Tries to exert self-control and stop scratching arms*

The hardest spinning class I’ve ever been to. ¬†I say that after every second class, but holy crap that one was tough. ¬†High resistance is such a killer! ¬†I couldn’t actually walk once I stepped off the bike, and that was after almost falling off in the middle of the class. ¬†I much prefer stricter gym instructors to softer ones though; it feels far more worthwhile knowing you’ve been pushed to your absolute limits. ¬†Even if I hate them at the time.

      My thoughts exactly when I first tried it on! I think I’ll wear it right through autumn and possibly into winter too – hopefully it’ll work under jumpers, we’ll see.
      Thank you so much!
