I wore this outfit a few Saturday's ago for a trip to Borough Market.
What's so great about this dress is that it looks like two separate pieces. The top half is almost designed as a crop top with a slight overhang over the skirt, but it's actually one piece with the two parts connected with a cotton underlay. Such a cleaver design and perfect for a Spring afternoon in the sun.
Dress: Dorothy Perkins^
Leggings: South (via Very)
Bag: George at ASDA*
I love the casual simplicity of this outfit, but the embroidery along the bottom panels bring a touch of something fancy. Dorothy Perkins are one of the first places I go when I want a cute dress that's light and comfortable, and this one doesn't disappoint. The dress is 100% Cotton and incredibly airy so I had no trouble weaving my way through the hustle and bustle of a food market, particularly over the weekend.
I decided to wear my cute plimsole thingys from Next and I'm trying to get as much wear out of them because they are falling apart after years of me stomping around the city in them. It's a shame as they're my favourite trainer-esk shoes but since I bought them way back when I was at uni, I'd say they've served me pretty well. The bag was a gift from George at ASDA after I attended one of their events. I love the colour, the size is fab and I know I'll get a lot of use out of it in the coming months.
I don't do casual often but it is fun to switch it up occasionally.
'til next time.
Love and hugs,
