Smock Dress-orama

Sometimes I wonder why people ever post more than one outfit photo – I mean, do you really need to see one photo with me gazing into the camera wistfully and then another doing so but behind a section of fringe? Feels like a game of spot the difference sometimes.  I actually asked Tom to take a few of this outfit because I wanted to show my ankle boots but he is way too tall to capture the details of anything below the knee, so this is the best I can do.  I’ve mentioned them a few times already on here anyway (in my new shoes post) but smock dresses and cutout boots are my current favourite combination at the moment – is there anything better than a dress you can eat indecent amounts of cake in and nobody knows?

This Jack Wills dress is an old favourite, it was bought at the outlet in Kilver Court and now sits in my drawer awaiting any day where I have a last minute panic about what to wear; you can always rely on it for comfort and I must admit that stripey dress, cardigan and tights is a little bit of a Rosie classic ensemble!

Having invested in a few more smock dresses since I bought this number I’m now reaching some kind of level of obsession – Autumn is the time when I pack all my summer-y dresses away and hunt for dresses that will look great with tights and a cardigan or jumper.  Here’s my current smock dress wishlist.  I may have already bought that rust, fox print number on the third row.  I have tinkered with this for about half an hour by the way and can’t stop there only being two on the final row so please excuse the bad symmetry, trust me it is annoying me more than it is annoying you! 🙂
