(Dress: C/O Miss Patina, Collar Clips: C/O Ladybird Likes, Shoes: Charlotte Olympia)

In terms of what I look for in a dress, this Miss Patina number pretty much comes close to something perfect (especially when spending a day with friends and baking fresh brownies and bakes in the kitchen). With an interesting layered collar (Peter Pan just ain't doin' it any more), muted school girl checks (without going too Home and Away on you) and the most flattering flared shape, it's the perfect vintage inspired frock for a modern day girl. Additionally, I popped on some cute-as-a-button collar clips from Ladybird likes in order to add a little pizazz to the outfit (I'm particularly taken on the googly eyed and love/hate heart clips on her site), and can tell I'm never going to be able to look at a crisp white shirt collar in the same way again... Here's to summer dress wearing weather and popping the opaques back in your drawers!

  4. Love this dress, the print is gorgeous. Very retro, looks adorable on you. Still want those shoes! I feel like my opaques are here to stay, it just seems to be getting ridiculously colder with each day.

  47. Love your dress and the simple way you've worn it! I recently just got a pretty perfect dress myself, a lovely shirt-dress, collared and with a cute print, but since winter still hasn't realised that its reign is over, I had to wear it with a chunky cardigan in hope of better days..
