The English Riviera

By Gem - 10:57:00

I'm so sad to be back home after a lovely weekend down south. I indulged in far too much wine, sun and fun. I now have the post holiday blues and minor sun stroke (even though I wore factor 50) I'll share some photos from my trip and some of the sights I saw in my next post but for now I have some photos of my new favourite dress. I picked up this dress in the ASOS sale for £18 and I love it! Smock dresses aren't overly flattering but it was comfortable and cool in the heat and has a very pretty pattern. I think this dress will get a lot of wear in the winter with boots and a biker jacket too.


Dress: ASOS
Bag: Viviene Westwood c/o Spartoo
Sunglasses: New Look
Necklace: Pieces
Shoes:Trainers by Keds c/o Spartoo


My lovely Pieces necklace that I forgot all about, I ordered it thinking it would be small like Tiffany key but it's huuuge.
