Floral Crop Top: H&M // Dungaree Dress: Select // Backpack: Primark // Sandals: Primark
Wearing a dungaree dress and a backpack did make me feel like I was on my way to primary school, but I couldn't resist putting this outfit together on a warm day last week. I picked up the dress in Select in Skegness for a bargain £12 and it's also available for that price on their website! The sizing was a little out though - I'm always a UK size 10 however only an 8 or 6 was available in the store, so I tried on the 8 hoping that I might squeeze in... and I did, with lots of room to spare. So I ended up buying the 6! Now I'm definitely not a size 6 so please take this into consideration if you buy online and down size slightly.
I popped on this floral crop top underneath, which met the top of the skirt part of the dress perfectly, with only a little flash of ribs showing occasionally. I've been looking for a leather-look backpack for ages, so snapped this one up for £8 in Primark. I'm trying not to buy too many new clothes or accessories at the moment as we're off travelling again soon so I won't use them, but I couldn't resist this. It's the perfect size for my giant purse, phone, keys and other little handbag essentials - it's had so much use already!
I wore this out on a shopping trip around Southampton, picking up craft bits and bobs to decorate a giant wooden festival-style letter. You know when festivals spell out their name on the site with giant letters? Josh's sister is having LOVEFEST set up at her festival themed wedding and different people are decorating each letter. Josh and I went mad with glitter, fairy lights and tinsel on our letter E... obviously. I will hopefully be posting about the wedding when it happens in a couple of weeks - I'm a bridesmaid, so exciting!
