Asos Floral Wrap Dress

This is becoming one of my favourite dresses. I don't have to think about what to pair it with, I just throw it on with some black shoes and a cardigan and I'm ready for work. I picked it up in the ASOS sale for about £18 just after Christmas and it has already had plenty of wear.

I've been busy the past week making a display in work to promote the Children's Literature Festival that happened in Cardiff and trying to highlight all the lovely children's books we have here at the library I work in. Even though it's an academic library we have some fun and interesting books which people don't always realise. I asked some of the academic staff and library staff to have a photo with their favourite children's book and tell me why they chose it to put on a display to accompany a selection of books.
I chose Matilda because contains a worthy message to all, children and adults alike, that if you have a book you are never alone in life.

The rest of my week is very busy, I have cdfblogs tonight, please pop along if you are local. I have a blogger event in Cardiff for Ladies Night at the shopping center tomorrow and I'm heading up to Birmingham to see the lovely Claire for her birthday this weekend. Phew, good job I have Monday off work to recover.

  2. You look gorgeous and your make up is dreamy! I am wearing a wrap dress right now and it is pretty obscene as for some reason it is *really* low cut!

    I love the dress, I always seem to shy away from wrap style dresses, though.
