Blue Grecian style maxi dress

I had a really long lovely chat i wanted to have with you all about the beauty of this dress, but after having maaajjor blogger upload issues all freakin’ day{edit: i wrote tthis last night and then still gave up and have come back this morning}, i’m kind of exhausted… thanks blogger, I needed that stress like a whole in the head i tell ya.

Now i have that off my chest i will briefly just tell you that this is my new maxi dress love. I picked up this cobalt maxi dress from Dorothy Perkins in the sale and i just bloody well love it. Its tshirt material so super comfy, but the neckline and the cut of the sleeves reminds me of the beautiful Grecian gowns. Because of that Grecian style i think it just adds such an elegant touch to such a simple dress. I’ve been pairing it with white and tan for a smart summer look but as its is such a great blank canvas i am excited to remix this baby up!

When the dress first arrived late one Wednesday afternoon i tried it on and immediately fell in love. It was a really warm afternoon and i was going out to the school to see my beautiful step-daughter in her leavers assembly. So there i was stood outside loads of parents at the school waiting, pleased as punch with my dapper new dress feeling rather Grecian and suave, when a gentleman behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said “‘Scuse me love, you’ve still got the label on your dress”


The excitement obviously overcame me and i completely forgot all about he stupid tag. Needless to say i know longer felt Grecian and suave.. #fail!

I quickly ripped the tag off and replied “its new, can you tell *cue over eager false laugh*”

Couple of other things i just wanted show my love for; my new white quilted jacket, it’s just so pretty!! I haven’t captured it in all its glory here ( i shall try better next time, pinky promise!) But it feels so beautiful on and is such a nice change from my denim jacket. 

And lastly my new Coin & Pearl necklace.. i just LOVE this necklace, bang on trend, not heavy, beautiful and pretty much just perfect in my eyes. I have wanted a coin necklace for some time, this one is the new apple of my necklace loving eye.

Dress: Dorothy Perkins (£16.00 on sale)
Gladiator Sandals& Clutch: F&F (£10.00 & £7.00 on sale)
White quilted jacket: Peacocks

    I hate blogger technical glitches! Cobalt is such a great color on you, and I can't get enough of that clutch.

    I've left the label on something before too! It's okay!
    This color looks absolutely amazing on you. It looks like such a comfortable dress too. I really like the cool purse you paired with it.

    You carry the strong blue so well. I love how you've teamed the dress with white. Your dark hair and red lips together with the white and blue looks striking, so eye catching. Great styling!
