First off, big apols for the onslaught of LOOK I’VE BEEN SHOPPING POSTS you’ll be experiencing from my Instagram and blog of late.
(There’s more on the way, soz but not that soz).
After nine months of suffocating myself in maternity leggings and tent tops, I am very much enjoying the sudden freedom of being able to online shop without having a small alien stuck to my stomach.
DRESSES! TROUSERS WITHOUT ELASTICATED WAISTBANDS! SKIRTS! TOPS THAT DON’T HAVE TO BE LONGER THAN THE NILE! What a wild, wild world I’m living in right now.
Anyway, one of my fave recent splurges is this dress.
A little monochrome wrap number (can we call it animal print or is that a stretch?) from my number one home girl, ASOS, which I thought would be pretty cute for spring with some fake tanned pins and some sort of babin’ cross-body bag.
And also, £28? Yes kind sir, I will take three.
I wasn’t sure if this style would suit me because my boobs are currently the size of two small cargo trucks, and y’know, these things tend to be ferociously low-cut (plus, this particular fella had a nice big cut-out section on the back and lol this gal can’t go braless).
But it turned out just whacking a black vest from Primark underneath sorted out both of those problems. AND as a nice extra bonus it also ensured that if the dress were to become untied at any point I wouldn’t accidentally flash my nipples at the general public which is dead handy at keeping my dignity fairly intact.
For this ~lewk~ I teamed the dress with my fave HELLO, I HAVE ARRIVED yellow blazer (now sold out but similar budget version here) and my £12 Primark kitten heels.
And yes, I’m v aware about 96% of people are not about the kitten heel life but lord help me if I try and wear stilettos out the house because I will fall over.
And these, my friends, are angelically comfortable. They also come in red and yes, I own those too.
So yeah, I reckon this dress would also look pretty sweet with black tights whilst it’s still positively Siberian outside and maybe some black ankle boots if that’s more your jam.
I’m a big fan of the fact that because it’s monochrome it pretty much goes with everything ever, so fingers crossed I get a fair bit of wear out of it.
OH and yeah, it’s breastfeeding friendly, should that be something that floats your boat.
Over and out.
