(Blouse: Zara, Dress: M.i.H (similar here), Bag: Tidy Street Store (similar here), Shoes: Castaner)

Once in a blue moon, I'll rifle through my wardrobe and magically come out with something that only fits but makes me feel really good too. I recently watched a video with real life angel Leandra Medine, and she said 'you should have a wardrobe which you can pick things from blindfolded'- and I suppose that's what happened with this. Since reordering my wardrobe from colour to category (a mini revolution for someone pretty slow to the organisational party), it's become a helluva lot easier to see what I have (opposed to where they fit on the Pantone chart)- and after pulling out an outfit in a bit of a rush, this snooker-player-esque blouse and special little pinafore are what came out...

After picking this M.i.H dress up in Selfridges in Manchester earlier this year for an almighty £20 (I couldn't believe it either)- I've been waiting for it to finally become warm enough to take it for a spin. Although I've had something similar in my wardrobe in the past, the fact this has buttons (poppers plus sitting down and an appetite are a recipe for trouble) makes it total justified in my opinion, and although there's perhaps a few degrees to go until I can really utilise it's cost per wear (ahem), I know it's a surefire summer staple.

  1. Firstly, not only is your little blue dress a total cutie, I love that it's DENIM! I bought something very similar and I can't wait for it to get warmer in London to wear it! I also love M.i.H denim!

  2. Girl, I absolutely love this denim dress! It's such a fresh take on the denim overall trend, but this time, your legs get to be free to feel the breeze as we go into warmer months. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I LOVEEEE this dress. Very into all the denim lately. Even considering wearing double denim - yes that's right a Canadian is considering a Canadian tuxedo. Revolutionary.

  19. Love this pinafore Liv! I've got a blouse very similar to this and been wearing it with light blue dungarees since the weather is a bit pants right now, but I think I might have to seek out something like this to pair it with over summer as it's SUCH a good combo. What a beautiful backdrop too!
