Sorry for the large gap in between posts. I've had some bad news recently so blogging's not really been top of my agenda. My nan's suddenly been taken seriously ill so i'd much rather spent my time visiting her then taking pictures of myself. Posting will be a bit sparce over the next few months but please do stick with me guys! Enough of that depressing news and onto the outfit.

I usually wear this dress with a cardigan but had been looking for different ways to wear it. Anyone else wear the same outfit combinations over and over again? I never seem to mix and match. Given that we've suddenly experienced dreadful weather - i'm thinking of building an ark - i've been needing to 'winter' my clothes up. Complete rubbish beens I have so many summer dresses taunting me everytime I open my wardrobe up. I'm quite happy how this has worked out and it's the perfect outfit to keep warm at work. I've been running scared of polo necks recently in fear that they make me look like frump. Kinda ironic given my love of granny clothes.

Are you running scared of polo necks too?


  1. Looking lovely Sophie, midi lenghts really suit you, unlike me (cos I'm a shorty)!! I especially love all these crazy classes going on in your bedroom with the wallpaper, leopard print and duvet cover. I hope writing this post has helped take your mind off things, if even for a little bit xx

  2. I love the leopard print dress, the necklace looks lovely too! Sorry to hear about your nan. x

  3. I love the leopard print :) *hugs* totally understandable, make the most of all your time with grandparents is my philosophy, hope things improve. xx

  4. I love this outfit, it looks really stylish!

  5. Hope you nan is on the mend soon hun. Family should always come first.

    As for outfit, well it looks fab. A great way to be able to wear summer outfits during horrid weather.

  6. I am so in love with that dress.

    I hope your Nan is on the mend soon...I've just been through that myself.

  7. Sorry to hear than your nan is poorly, I hope she will be on the mend very soon.

    I love that dress, since I am a total whore for leopard print I can just never get enough.

  10. I've never been a fan of polo necks as I find them restrictive and uncomfortable. But you look incredibly elegant!
    Sorry to hear about your Nan, hope she gets well soon x

  11. Love this dress so much! I am too scared of polo necks! I think you pull the look off really well but I would def give this a go with a t-shirt!
    Sorry to hear about your nan, I really hope things get better for her! xx

  12. Sorry to hear about your nan and I hope she feels better soon.

  18. Sorry to hear about your nan, Sophie. I hope she's on the mend soon.
    Love this midi dress (and how you are making a good print clash with your wallpaper and duvet!). I never wear polo necks as I have a really short neck anyway and I think they just emphasis how short it is! x
