Blue Maxi Dress: Bali, similar here, here and here. Sandals: Emu Australia.
After Laura had exploded over text that 'OH MY GOD MEGS YOU ARE JUST GOING TO DIE AT HOW AMAZING THE CLOTHES ARE HERE', I knew I'd need a few extra pennies (and backpack space) to allow for some new items to add to my wardrobe from my trip Bali.

Little did I know that for the cost of a pair of knickers at Topshop I could buy an entire outfit from a local store over here.

GUYS, it's just SO cheap.

And when I say cheap, I am in no way referring to the quality of the clothes. These lot know exactly what they're doing and make some seriously lovely pieces, with the most incredible fabrics.

I picked up this dress from a small boutique on Hanoman Street in Ubud for 300,000 Rupiah - which works out at about £15 in British Pounds.
It's a higher quality finish that you'd see in the likes of our high street shops, for a fraction of the price - with a silky, soft texture it's lightweight enough to endure the suffocating heat you experience whilst holidaying in Bali; but it's also the perfect piece to layer come Autumn in the UK with jackets and chunky boots. It didn't feel too dressy for Ubud's casual attire but above all it made me feel happy when I put it on. Which is good enough reason to buy any piece of clothing, right?
