Sunset Smock







Dress: Ever Ours*. Bag: Becksondergaard. Shoes: Office. Ray-bans: Sunglasses Shop*
Smock Dresses.

They're a funny one, aren't they? I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling that they require a particular taste...

At first, I turned my nose up at them, but when I actually dared try one on I was pleasantly surprised. The ridiculously baggy look is a fave of mine, so why not apply it to dresses too? They are literally perfect for Spring/Summer wear - let's face it we're all a bit lazier when it comes to our SS wardrobe, no-one wants to be fussin' over a tighty-whitey tee or something that clings to your booty.

Ever Ours is 100% your online destination for smock dresses of dreams. I'm partial to a lil' bit of print now and then and this gingham beauty with adorable cream trimmings is my favourite of the bunch.

I've also adopted a love for sunglasses where no-one can see your eyes - this is the ultimate 'I want to stare at people and not be seen' cover up. (I'm a people watcher FYI not a stalker, ahem). These Ray-bans remind me of something an American Cop would wear, and that makes me cool.
In summary: they're bloody lovely with their tortoise shell trim and ability to re-do your lipstick in the reflection, who wouldn't want a pair?

It just goes to show, that when you push yourself out of your comfort zone every now and then, it can lead to great things...wardrobe-wise anyway.

And don't get me started on my shoes.

Haha yes I totally agree!
I was exactly the same but I now own like 15?
Becomes a bit of a problem when you're wearing them every day perhaps? But they're soooooo comfy!!!

I've got a bit of a love / hate relationship with smock dresses - I hate them on me but love them on the hanger. :(

I love the dress. It looks great on you. I always have to buy really small smocks otherwise they really do drown me, I always go down a size.

This is so pretty yet comfortable - it's hard in the summer to feel comfortable and look stylish but you've pulled it off. And those shoes look gorgeous :)

I absolutely adore this dress and it matches the shoes so so well!
Your hair colour compliments the pattern so much, if that makes sense...

Those raybans are such a good idea, we can all be secret agents!

I was the same way about smock dress, I hated them until I tried one on! I love the print of this one, and the eyelet lace around the hem and sleeves is so pretty!

I don't normally like smock dresses but this one doesn't seems as typically floaty, plus its so flattering on you!
