(Dress: C/O Jones and Jones, Shoes: Topshop, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters)

Now, as much as I love toning it down on holiday; lounging about in over sized t-shirts that should never be seen in public and walking around with half dried hair and red eyes from too much swimming-pool time (not my strongest look); when the sun starts setting my favourite thing to do is get a little (or lotta) dressed up.

Even when at home, I'm often known as the one who likes to 'overdress'- take me out for a Pizza Express? The heels come out. Baking in the kitchen? Why not pretend to be Nigella! It's not really something I pride myself on (no Liv, a Beyonce 'Love on top' style tux jacket isn't always necessary), but most of the time I'd rather be over dressed than under dressed. So, after browsing the amazing selection of dresses Jones and Jones have to offer, I was sold. If there's one thing Jones and Jones always hit on the head, it's shape. Beautiful structured skater dresses with detail you could only dream of; it's safe to say I felt pretty dressed up and lady like when I pulled this bad boy on. Additionally, this gorgeous number is also now in their summer sale, with the black version having just landed for the new season- temptation doesn't even begin to cover it. Race you to it?

and here's what I wore...
