A wishful-thinking OOTD tale!



I have no idea what happened but my outfit photos have been turning out so grainy recently. So apologies for the poor quality, hopefully I'll turn it around before I do another ootd.

I've featured this dress on here before but I didn't give it a proper introduction. It's one I go to on a regular basis, especially when I need a good mood-pep-up. The bright floral design makes me feel all-kinds of Summery and the cut is one of my favourites - a buttoned waistband, pleated skirt and cute little cap sleeves!

It's originally from Topshop but I found it on good-old eBay, and last year at that, but I have a feeling it'll be sticking around in my wardrobe for a fair while longer! 


The cardi is one of your H&M basics (I have the same in black) and it just makes the whole thing feel a little less heavy, if that makes any sense, especially as I coupled it with black tights too (although I'd happily wear the black with it in Winter!). It's an absolute necessity right now because the weather has no idea what it is doing - I refuse to wear a coat, because it's June, but there is zero way I can be at all comfortable outside without something covering my arms up (now, wouldn't that be lovely?!)

I hope your day has been a sunnier one than that which we've been treated to here!

  9. Hi lovely, thank you for your comment & like :) it's much appreciated! I love your dress - the floral pattern is so pretty. The weather really doesn't know what it's doing, I actually had to wear my Winter coat (in June!) this morning to go to work, but now I'm feeling too warm in my comfy house clothes and the sun's out! No idea what to wear on days like this xx

To my fabulous Tori's Tales comment'ers - I cherish each and every comment you take the time to leave me and, because of that, I reply to each and every one in return. If you have a Twitter account, then that's where you'll find me replying (because, let's be honest, I live on Twitter. In Twitter. Around Twitter. Twitter). If you don't then fear not, because a) this means you don't say stuff like the things above and b) I'll find you elsewhere.......
(*creeps you all out*)
