the tartan dress

(tartan smock dress - topshop...boots - new look)

i'm not a dressy person. you will probably be used to seeing me in a pair of leggings during the day, or a pair of shorts if i'm out in the night. but, recently something strange has happened - a few day dresses have creeped their way into my wardrobe. this one is a new addition, but is most definitely welcome with open arms.

i do this really annoying thing where i kind of make outfits up in my head. i may have an idea of where they're from, or where i've imagined them from, but never am actually sure if they exist. my bezzieeee gets very frustrated as i would drag her around the whole of town searching for an outfit that may or may not exist. this dress was no exception. i woke up one day thinking 'hmm, tartan is cool, so are smock dresses...i want a tartan smock dress'. and it was settled. i was to find a tartan smock dress. but, i was lucky, as tartan is the 'in thing' for this autumn, so i guess they were everywhere! i found this online at topshop, and bought it right away!

it's the most perfect day dress, as it's a really good length for wearing in the day without tights. it's a little longer at the back, which is good for protecting modesty. i also like the baggy fit of it - i bought a size 8 and it's a little loose around the waist, which i like - more room for eating yayyy. it's great for chucking on during a sunny day and feeling comfortable, but can also see myself wearing a little white top under it in the colder months with tights. it looks great with my big clumpy boots, but would also look pretty dressed up :) 

would you believeee it? another dress - it's almost like i'm a girl! xo
