I was frantically shopping for some black pumps when I came across this dress in H&M and decided now and then I had to have it. It was brought completely on whim and I actually trekked to two different stores to make sure I could take it home. H&M is never usually a store I shop in very often as the jumble sale-esque layout isn't my favourite. I like to be able to shop stress free and see everything clearly on display. This was hanging clearly in view so it was obviously meant to be. I decided to pair with it some 70's style platform shoes to help give me some height. I find a midi can look frumpy on a night out if they're not paired with heels. I wore this out at the weekend for an evening out watching a Take That tribute act after tagging along with the mother and my friend.

This week is slightly less jam-packed than usual which is proving to be a god send. As I'm coming down with a cold I'm loving popping my onesie on as soon as i get in the door from work and snuggling down in front of the telly. Socialising is fun but boy is it tiring! I've also managed to get quite a few Christmas presents out of the way so I'm feeling rather smug! Boots 3 for 2 is proving to be very helpful!


  1. Boo, I hope your cold shifts soon! I too, can't wear a midi without heels, it just seems wrong, somehow.

  2. Love this dress! the lace hem is soo pretty! :) xx
