(Jacket: French Connection, Dress: Topshop, Belt: Mums, Shoes: C/O Swedish Hasbeens, Headband: New Look)


Without realising it, these shoes are probably one of the easiest items to style in my wardrobe. Teamed with jeans, dresses, tights, socks or even shorts, there's not a season that comes to mind where you probably couldn't find a way to wear them (unless you live on a snowy mountain top of course...) Today I attempted a more 'summer festival beachy' look, and although the headband is certainly a little (lot) out of my comfort zone, and I don't quite wear it like a certain Del Rey or Bardot, it adds something a little more spring like to a very simple and versatile look. Additionally, as you've probably seen on many blogs I wore this grey Topshop jersey dress. I was initially unsure of it's mid length (with my tiny height midi is sometimes a bit of a test) but with a belt and a small heel found it the perfect comfort piece for more lazy days lounging around the house.

Anyway, I hope you've all been having a lovely week (and staying dry) I've had a pretty busy work filled few weeks, but am just coming around to catching up with everything. I'd also like to say a HUGE well done to papa P who successfully ran the London Marathon yesterday in 5 hours (and 1 minute) and raised over £2000- so proud! Just need to start training so I can run it before my 21st eek!

P.S Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback on my last post. I was a little unsure of what kind of reaction it would gage, but am so thrilled that many of you enjoyed it (it did take a fair while) so will hopefully have some more things like that in the near future!

  3. This out fit is gorgeous! Wish I could pull off a midi dress, but being 5ft tall just doesn't allow it. Beautiful shoes too

  7. olivia, you are so beautiful you make my face want to cave in on itself! i definitely agree about the midi dress, i find them so difficult to approach so very often put them back on the hangers and walk away. you look wonderful in it though, and those shoes are dreamy.

    congratulations to your dad on his marathon successes! i must sign up to do one at some point, i used to run competitively so it's something i'd love to get back in to so i could do it for myself.

  34. Well done to your Dad for completing the marathon! Love your hair, love your outfit. I have this same dress except I probably look like a sack a spuds in it because I usually wear mine androgynously with boots and a leather jacket! Might make mine more summery in the the future!
