Little Sailor





Dress - Monki
Shoes and Jacket - Topshop
Bag - Vintage
Necklace - Little Nell

How overboard did I go on the Sailor look here?? 

This is what I wore yesterday when thankfully the sun decided to pop out again! One of my closest friends and the girl I moved to London with is due a little bundle of joy in a months time (How grown up does this make me feel??) so me and the girls hired a car and took a mini road trip down to South London for her surprise baby shower! It was such a lovely day, involving us all truly offending her by estimating her bump was triple it's actual size and betting on the weight of her baby. In two weeks time I'm going to anti natal classes with her as her partner can't make it! I'm thinking of making a video...anyone fancy seeing that?? JOKING!! 

This little dress is from Monki, a shop I have total fallen in love with. Now that I have quit the shopping ban I am free to go visit their new store in Carnaby Street.

I'm off to soak up a bit of culture today, me and Danny are off to see the Lucian Freud exhibition at the Portrait Gallery then walking down to the south bank, got to make the most of this sunshine.

  5. Yess love the double sailor look.. I saw the dress when I was there, so tempted to buy it but I did buy 3 items so felt a fourth would've been a bit overindulgent. But next time I go...! xx

    1. Ha, I know I used to always have to shy away from the makeup to stop myself spending a fortune! I can't wait to go to the store, I've heard good things. x

  10. Cute sailor look sweetie. Fab tanned legs too! I got the fake tan out about a week ago but should have taken a pic for my blog at the time as I'm back to being pale again now! I wanna go to Monki when I next visit London. I'm also getting invites to fashion events lately which I keep missing as I live so far away. Gutted! Need to move back down to London town! xx

  11. Gorgeous dress, really love the cut and fit of it on you, if only I had your figure to pull it off!
    And I too feel old now that people are having babies around me, and slightly jealous which is MADNESS as I've always said I didn't want kids!

  19. I've been eyeing up this dress too, but I think it'll be a bit long on my short self. looks so good on you, especially with the boots.
