The ASOS T-shirt dress

So my ASOS order finally made it. I should really cut them some slack as the package was only about 3-4 days later than anticipated and I didn't pay a penny in shipping but still: international order with no tracking details? I was getting nervous!

This is one of the items I was looking forward to the most. I saw Lily wear it on her blog and immediately ordered. It's one of those flowy type dresses that will be perfect in the hot summer months. This and the fact that it had a dipped hem made me add to basket.

Now be warned, the overall fit could be described as "sack".

I do like that - I don't always want to wear tight, form-fitting clothes - and I think when paired with skyscraper heels/wedges it would work well. However, when worn with flat shoes I think it has dowdy potential and for me the only way to rectify that is to add a belt to prove the existence of my waist - the one I wear below is also from ASOS and cost £8.



Dress: ASOS - Link!
Belt: ASOS - Link!
Shoes: Nico (?) random brand sold in Battuta Mall in Dubai
Sunglasses: Rayban
Bag: Celine

Other than wearing a new dress I have had a pretty non-eventful day but I like it like that at the weekend. All I need is lazy lie-ins, coffees, red wine nights, sweet potato fries with chilli mayo and  pyjamas :)

Reading update: I am currently working my way through Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It's pretty good so far and reminds me of Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson in terms of the suspense - it's highly recommended!

Oh and I am all organised when it comes to blogging this week so a post will definitely be up tomorrow... :) Go me! x

  3. I really liked the laid-back look of the dress when I saw it over on Lily's blog, but it just looks a lot more sophisticated on you. Just proves how versatile this dress is really. I should really stop making excuses and go buy it now...

  8. I agree about the sack comment, I ordered the sleeveless dip hem dress and had exactly the same problem.

  15. I love it all! Laura, I have been on a hunt for these particular Ray Ban Aviators for quite some time now but can't seem to figure out what the style number is just off the pictures on the Ray Ban website. I would appreciate it if you would please let me know what the style number are for these aviators.

    Thanks! :)

  26. Simple elegance as ever Laura. The blush colour is pretty and the mullet hem adds some interest.

  27. This dress is perfection - no need to give the "sack" warning at all! I think having a more relaxed fit is so much more preferable than a snug one.

    Thank you for sharing!
