I love you when you're singing that song


Black and white contrast polka dot dress: ASOS (similar)
Nude block heeled sandals: Dorothy Perkins c/o Westfield Stratford City (similar)
Light wash denim jacket: Primark (similar)
Black cross over chain handle bag: Zara (similar)

My finger slipped and I went a bit mad in the ASOS sale and one of the things that arrived on my doorstep was this pretty spotted dress. It actually detatches and becomes a co-ord too. Amazing! It makes it even more of a bargain! It was something that was brought completely on a whim - the rest of the order was sensible tops boo! - but it's turned out to be my favourite item. It's going to be the perfect outfit to make that transition from day to night. Unpop the poppers and voila you're ready to hit the town!

With my Glastonbury trip and my boyfriend's stag week to Ibiza, money is a little tight this month and probably next month too! But it was the boyfriend's birthday last Tuesday and I couldn't let it go without any sort of celebration so I gave him the choice to pick a day trip. As always we opted for the Big Smoke. But this time we popped to Brockley Market - more on that later this week - in the morning where we picked up some delicious treats and Greenwich in the afternoon. We decided to venture down to Greenwich park as it was sunny and we don't get many of those days in England! We treked up the hill to the Observartory and were rewarded with some cracking views of Canary Wharf, the o2 Arena and the Maritime Musuem. It was well worth huffing and puffing in the hot sun!

Have you ever been to Greenwich? It has to be one of my favourite parts of the city.


  1. This dress suits you so much Sophie! Mega envious of your foodie adventures!

  2. Oh hi prettiest lady! Such a lovely outfit, I think I could just copy everything you buy- I might start doing that ;)


  3. Why don't more shops do that style of dress? It is such a good idea, and like you said, so transitional from daytime to evening! That red velvet cake looks yummy!! Hollie x

  4. sounds like a perfect day out :) very good sale purchase too, the top will look great tucked into your other midi skirts xx

  5. Such a pretty outfit Sophie, your day out sounded lovely too. xx
