I love you but you're green

Green palm print 50s style dress: Zara c/o Westfield London
Light wash denim jacket: Primark (similar)
Gold boyfriend watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Black pointed flat with an ankle strap: Next (similar)

As soon as I spied this out of the corner of my eye when I walked in, I knew it was more or less coming home with me. There's just something about the 50s style that draws me in, Every time. I can see this being a staple in the warmer months. It's great to dress down for a lazy weekend - plenty of room for food in that beauty. Or dress up with a pair of skyscraper shoes and a leather jacket for a night on the tiles. I do love a multi-tasker!

How lovely has this weekend be? Ah everything is ten times better in the sunshine! I did a bootsale yesterday - less said about that the better - and just sat in a friends garden on Saturday eating far too many burgers. Bliss. I'm counting down the days until next weekend as i'm off to Nottingham for a few days to stay with a friend. Fingers crossed for some sunshine!

Did you have a nice weekend?


  1. Gorgeous! This dress looks amazing on you Sophie :) x

  2. GORGEOUS!! I tried on the exact same one a few weeks ago, I saw it through the doorway and made a beeline - alas, I was too tall for it, the waist sat too high and my boobs therefore didn't fill the neckline. I was gutted! Glad it got a good home though x

  3. That dress is absolutely beautiful - may have to copy you on that front!

  4. Such a beautiful dress, looks lovely on you! :) x
