Where the Sun Sets





Dress: M&S*; Jacket: Topshop; Hat: H&M;
Shoes: M&S*;

Would you believe me if I said this dress was from M&S? The shoes too.

This was my outfit I wore to the airport and I must say, wearing this on a long haul flight isn’t one of the greatest ideas. As you sit down in your seat, the dress relaxes and can get caught by the person sat next to you. The awkward constant annoyance asking them that they’re sat on my dress or I would have to tug it. Or maybe it’s just me who’s had this experience. I did feel free and not restricted wearing it whatsoever.

This dress is actually perfect length for me. Being 5’3″ (163cm), I do have trouble with maxi skirts being too long and the only way to fix it is to wear heels. The pink in this makes me feel feminine even though it is dominantly grey. The cut is different and interesting, longer at the front and back whilst a tad shorter on the sides. I’ve also worn this in Hong Kong, covering my horrendous mosquito bites which are still healing right now. It is quite flowy (best word to describe it?) and looks nice when I walk. M&S is currently stocking a great range of dresses at the moment.

Who doesn’t love a statement shoe? I’m still adoring the metal heel look. I’ve worn these to work to brighten my monochrome outfits. The fitting is a little on the small side and being one of those girls with the dreaded half sizes, I’ve gone for a size up as advised on one of the reviews and boy oh boy glad I did even though they did half sizes.

I’ve never realised how floppy the fedora actually is. Is there a way to make it less floppy? It seems to be too droopy for my small head. Sad that H&M doesn’t do it in a size small.
