Polka Dots in the Forest


polka dot dress

Dress: Topshop
Boots: New Look (similar here)

I think I fell out of love with Topshop when I graduated uni, the lack of student loan/having to pay council tax stopped me from convincing myself that £35+ on a dress was ok and I then developed a bit of a high and mighty attitude towards the store. I'd scoff to whoever I was with at the time at their ever increasing price tags and feel smug that I was no longer part of the Topshop following.
This dress has changed all that. I don't really know what it is that I love so much about it, but once on I forget that I have dirty blonde lank hair and like to flounce around thinking I'm Zooey Deschanel in New Girl. I think somewhere amongst disco pants, a 90's grunge esque revival, and collared shirts my love of dresses got lost somewhere but with (hopefully) summer comes an appreciation for all things floaty and dresses are now at the forefront of my mind alongside cute videos of cats and waiting for my lives to increase on Candy Crush.

Anywayys these photo's were taken in Center Parcs where I've just travelled back from today, I took a few snaps so I'll upload them into a post but overall I had a rather lovely weekend away and developed a penchant for squash - even if it did give me booty pain.

  2. Ah I was just eyeing up this dress the other day actually! It looks lovely jubbly on you, especially with your hair colour.

    I freakin' LOVE centre parcs, I went there with my boyfriend's family last year and have been hankering to go back ever since. One day, one day x

  3. I have this dress and love it. The fit is so flattering and I think it can be worn day or night. I agree that sometimes justifying Topshop prices is tough, but this dress was money well spent for me :) you look gorgeous in this dress, plus it makes your legs look like they go on forever

  22. I have to admit that I'm one of the Topshop-scoffers, except for when there is a sale on and I seem to be able to stock up on cheap shoes!
    I love this dress on you, though. Not that I've seen New Girl, but I'll take your word for it, you probably look like her ;) Or prettier! xx
