Your striped summer dress

I thought I'd share a little workwear outfit today, this is one I wore one day last week.  I'm finding it pretty difficult to dress for the office whilst it's still really warm, especially on days when there's also chance of showers.  I wore this with a blazer but I took the blazer off for the photos as it was so muggy!  The dress itself is really light and airy so perfect for warmer days. Apologies for my dress looking mega crumpled by the way, I took these at the end of the work day when the light was nicer so this is the result of me sitting in an office chair for eight hours...

I like to call this first pose 'inquisitive owl' - you can use it too if you like, it's a good look.

dress: dorothy perkins via voucher codes swap shop | necklace: primark [old]
cutout heels: kat maconie: £129 | watch: michael kors
I picked up this dress at the Voucher Codes Swap Shop last month, I really like the shape, and you probably know by now that I'm a lover of anything with a stripe! I'm also a lover of my new Kat Maconie heels, I bought these in the Spartoo sale a few weeks ago as I had some credit and I've worn them a lot since, they're really comfortable as the heel isn't too high.

Today we're still getting stuck into our project to redo our conservatory.  We're trying to transform it from a horrid place full of junk, blue concrete floor tiles, cobwebs and brick walls to somewhere a bit nicer to spend a summer's evening.  Tom is currently swearing at some laminate flooring which is probably my cue to go and help! Luckily after all this hard graft we have a dinner out tonight to look forward to, not to mention the last episode of The Returned, eek!

Hope you're all having lovely Sundays too,

  3. Beautiful outfit. I struggle with work outfits when it's so muggy too, but have been loving simple skater dresses from Dorothy Perkins and New Look to keep me cool :) xx

  7. I love the inquisitive owl pose, I will definately use it, but I doubt I'll be able to do it justice! Lovely dress, hopefully it will convince the sun to stick around. ;)

  8. Pretty dress Rose! You don't look like you've been sat at a desk for 8 hours - you look lovely. I usually look and feel so fed up by that point, I wouldn't have it in me to take a picture - I commend you!
