I have a confession to make. My name is Sophie and I am addicted to buying dresses I don't need. Asos is my latest drug. I don't really know why I go mad for summer dresses as England doesn't seem to like the sunshine - i'll get much more wear about of A/W clothes as they'll get worn for 11 months out of the year. I completely fell in love with this as soon as I spotted it on the 'New In' section and went on a bit of a mad selling spree on Ebay until I could afford it. I don't feel guilty about buying dresses with Paypal money as it's not real right? My boyfriend thinks this makes me insane for thinking like this.

I wore this out over the weekend for a trip to church but with some nude heels. I'm not usually the hugest fan of church services but my dad's stepbrother is catholic and he arranged for a special mass to be held in honour of my nan. It was a really nice sentiment and a lovely way for my nan to be remembered.We went out for a family meal afterwards to a lovely Spanish restaurant nearby where we stuffed our face with wine and good food.

I finally booked my holiday so shall be jetting off to Bulgaria for two sun-filled weeks in September. Has anyone ever been to Sunny Beach? Any tips?


  1. Love the dress <3 I never seem to find much on Asos which is probably just as well! V jealous about your holiday, I could really do with some sun!! xx

  2. That dress is beautiful, I'm in love!

  3. That dress is a beauty and I bet your Nan would have loved how pretty you look in it.
    I haven't been to Bulgaria but I know a couple who spend 5 months a year at Sunny Beach so it must have something (they spend 6 months in Goa)! This website is sometimes useful:
    PS My lipstick is No.52 by Barry M, it's ace.

  4. Anything with spots on is a winner in my eyes. And no, Paypal money isn't real - think of it as free purchases!! x

  5. this dress is lovely and really suits you. my uncle has an apartment in sunny beach in bulgaria and goes every chance he gets because he loves it there. im sure you will have a great time.

  6. That dress is lovely, I'm with you on the dress addiction, went shopping the other day.. strictly to buy nothing but trousers.. came home with a dress and no trousers!

  9. lovely dress Sophie! Very summery x

  10. love the dress, perfect for your holidays!
    p.s such a nice thing to do for your nan! x

  11. Gorgeous dress Soph, you pull of the midi style so well, chic granny lol but seriously you don't look granny ish at all. If I wore this, teamed with my crazy hair and I'd be full on zimmering with the other grannies. Can't go wrong with polka dots either

  12. gorgeous colours! ooh, the holiday sounds fun, lucky you! xx

  13. Ooh such a lovely feeling when you book a holiday! Love this outfit, the dress is so gorgeous!
