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?

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

    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.
