It starts and ends with you - ASOS floral smock

This dress was a bit of a post holiday blues cure purchase, after nearly two weeks off work the prospect of returning to students in full swing exam madness was terrifying. The bright flowers on this dress certainly perked me up and I wore this to a library conference on Friday. I did wear it with a cardigan because if you work in a library a cardigan is practically uniform and I had to cover up the open back which makes it a tad sassy for daywear. I wore this with flat shoes but I can't wait to wear this with some heels on a night out and pair it with a bright clutch bag.

Love the open back, think it makes the dress a lot less ordinary. I wore it with a red bra because if you're going to see it then it may as well be a fun one right? I tried to look a little more put together and slick for my conference and stuck my favourite imPRESS nails on in a nice deep colour. I don't have a suit, blazer or a blouse that isn't leopard print so maybe it's time to invest in so adult clothes...

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday, I'm going to spend the day sulking because Norway didn't win Eurovision, taking Sookie for a walk and watching my Les Mis DVD that I picked up yesterday.
