Stripes & Dusters

Dress - Zara // Coat - Asos // Belt - Mulberry // Shoes - Zara // Bag - H&M

Aaaah the bank holiday, who doesn't love a 3 day weekend. It takes me back to the days of retail where the dreaded bank holiday forms would be handed out and you'd have to nominate yourself for at least 3. These days, my bank holidays are spent lounging around, online shopping and blogging, my perfect kinda day. Sitting here today typing this up in this lovely weather, it looks like our summer is pretty much over. I had planned to take some outfit pics today but i've been rained off, so this is an outfit that I wore a couple of weeks back when the weather was how it's supposed to be in August. I wore this dress on holiday without the belt, so at least i've had quite a bit of wear out of it if I can't wear it again.

The dress was a last minute Zara sale buy before my holiday for an amazing £7.99. I did what I do every year before my holiday and think i'm prepared before deciding I don't have enough clothes, cue panic buying a couple of days before. Although Zara's delivery service isn't as good as the likes of Asos, it still turned up just in time. I've styled it here with a belt but it's more of a slouchy/dropped waist kinda fit. I can't tell you how many striped tops/dresses i've bought recently, I can't seem to get enough. The trusty duster is back out, and is still my go-to coat for this weather. Even though it's raining it's not cold enough for a coat so this is the perfect choice. This coat is now just £42 in the sale if you're interested!

As I have another holiday in October (i've been veeeeery lucky this year) I still feel like I should be stocking up on more summer clothes. I'm desperately trying to avoid the sales and keep buying for next season, which i've definitely started doing. I have a feeling that from now on all my posts will feature trousers, coats and scarves! Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday!

See you in my next post.

  1. Love the duster with your monochrome bag and I can't believe the price of your dress... what a bargain! I also planned to shoot an outfit today but the rain is just awful :( I've bought out the coats and scarves already to be honest! Haha
