Denim Shirt: Primark
Floral Dress: Chi Chi*
Dolly Shoes: Shelikes*
Hummingbird Watch: Olivia Burton*
Leg Bruises: My Bed.

I absolutely adore the floral pattern on this Chi Chi dress and wanted to wear it straight away, but despite the regular appearances of sunshine its still just that little bit too chilly to be wandering around in a strapless dress. A perfect compromise was to pop this denim shirt over it and tie up the ends Britney Spears circa Baby One More Time style. I think it works perfectly over this particular dress because it makes it look like a big flouncy fifties style skirt. 

Then we have my two wardrobe staples at the moment - these Shelikes dolly shoes are insanely wearable and I love them to pieces, I think I'm actually going to have to buy myself the black version as well - plus keep my fingers crossed that they come out with a white pair...or a mint pair maybe?  Last but by no means least my beautiful Olivia Burton watch, which I've been wearing everyday and which I'm sure I'll continue to be sporting since, y'know, I only went and got myself a job there!
