Colour of the Trap - Peter Pan collar dress

Finally, a day off! I've been really busy the past week cramming lots in before Christmas, nights out, shopping after payday and planning lots of gathering. I'm already making plans for the new year like another trip to Manchester and I've got tickets to see Two Door Cinema Club and for the NME tour. Lots to look forward to and a full diary which is what I like to see.

I wore this Simply Be dress to do some shopping and get my hair cut earlier today. (This is pre hair cut, had a fair amount chopped off.)


collar dress

Dress: c/o Simply Be
Shoes: flat shoes Clarks c/o Spartoo
Necklace: eBay

I'm not sure that the shape and high neckline is too flattering on me but I love this dress. It's great for work but the detail on the collar and shiny buttons also makes it perfect for the weekend too.

Got a rather busy week ahead of me, I'm reviewing a restaurant tomorrow which I've never done before, heading to London on Thursday and then to Birmingham on Saturday with Echo Falls for the Clothes Show. Any of you going to the Clothes Show this week? I've not been before and don't know what to expect.
