I placed an order for this dress from Next ages ago and it’s just arrived. It looks fab in the directory but I wasn’t sure if it would be right for me. Let me tell you; it’s bloody gorgeous. Maxi √ Frills √ Animal print √ Wraparound √ It’s so perfect. It’s actually from the Next beachwear range and has a matching bikini which I obviously had to order too. You don’t need to see a photo of me in the bikini (unless I’m tanned, on holiday and reclining on a lounger sucking my stomach in) so click here to check out the bikini being rocked by a proper model.
The other great thing about the dress is that it will see me through to winter. I’m already planning to wear it with boots over a roll neck and leggings. Yes, really, leggings are going to be huge next season. But ladies do not despair; we can embrace this trend. Keep an eye out for my How Not To Be Scared Of Leggings blog post – coming soon.
Also from Next is the yellow (mustard?) bag. And again this ticks a lot of boxes for me: big enough for all my crap but not too big, cross body, removable strap, on trend colour and I think it was about £30 although it looks way more expensive. I can’t find it online but there were plenty in store.
What I’m wearing: Dress: Next | Bag: Next | Trainers: Fila | Sunglasses: Le Specs (old)
