& Other Stories S/S Dress

It was the 9th of April 2017, and the weather in London was clear blue skies and sunshine - with a temperature of 19'. It's amazing that I now consider anything over 13' to be warm , whereas back in France I would consider highs of 18 or 19 to still be a little chilly. We had just come back from Prague the day before, and spontaneously decided to go out despite our sore feet. The sunshine was just too good to resist. So, I unpacked my new dress, took a light jacket out of my wardrobe and set off to the train station.

I love the new summer dress feeling. Where you try it on in store and know straight away it could be your favourite spring/summer piece. It was a little pricey for what it is but it fit so well and was such a pretty colour that I decided to treat myself.  I loved the pink and purple tones of this dress, different from most summer dresses, The sleeves, the fit, the neckline - hugging my body in all the right places. I feel like summer dresses invite a different state of mind - liberating, inspiring, and feeling like anything can be achieved. I've always found dressing for the warmer months easier. Without the bothersome layers, stuffing another scarf in my bag just in case. It's probably my lazy side, not having to put as much effort into your outfit because the dress is the main piece. 

Accessorizing is definitely not one of my strong points. I've always struggled with it, it never crosses my mind to wear a hat, wear different sunnies or more jewelry. I don't even own a watch yet! That's something that I'm hoping to improve this year. I've been on the look out for more sunnies, and I can't wait to discover different earring arrangements now that I have a new ear piercing!

We took these pictures in a little street just off Oxford Street - the perfect, quiet location! We had just picked up our film pictures from Boots, and were looking for a place to shoot some pictures before sitting down at Pret and looking through the film pictures of Prague. It was one of those spontaneous days where everything seemed to fall into place.
