Black &White Dress with a dash of Pink

 A quick post from me today as i've not a lot to say due to being poorly majority of my weekend (damn it!) and fighting fatigue as I type (can you hear that tiny violin lol...)
So just a simple dress outfit today folks. Black, white, pink annnndd done :)
Such an easy formula. This new dress is so easy to wear (and only £10 might i add!) I love the little vice-versa colour on the sleeves. I threw a blazer over this but it was warm enough to be without it. I can see a pair of flat black sandals and a denim jacket in this dresses future for a more relaxed summer outfit and then some thick black tights and boots and a colour pop coat for winter! Multi-seasonal, my favourite kind of piece.
THIS dress is also on my to-buy list..Stripes can do no wrong in my eyes!




 Actual Dress & Pink Shoes: Matalan
Pink Bag: Next
Blazer: Primark
Necklace: Yosa (shop launch soon!)


 Do you own any fail-safe dresses?

  1. You look great—very flattering!
    My swing dress is fail proof. It can withstand food babies, bike rides and hot hot weather.

    1. Very pretty outfit! You look great! I personally just would not put two shades of pink into one outfit. I would choose just one, either handbag or shoes. However, it is perfect anyway!
      I love the necklace.
