Every year I buy one thing which carries me through the summer and this year is no different. I spotted this Topshop dress on their website whilst on the lookout for a comfy midi dress that would suit almost any occasion, and when I saw this, my search was complete.
The style is quite reminiscent of the 50s with the bibbed, buttoned down top and it is also the best print ever- DAISIES!! Is there a prettier flower?! I have worn it multiple times already to family gatherings, wandering around Loch Lomond or day trips to the capital city and every time I feel so confident and comfortable in it.
One thing I really love about it is the versatility- simply by adding a belt, the style of the dress completely changes, creating that gorgeous 50s silhouette, or without a belt and with a pair of chunky trainers it becomes a great casual day dress for any excursion.
I am wearing a Topshop petite size 4 because as much as I love the smock style, I’m only 5ft 4inches so if something is too big, I look even smaller and sometimes like I’m dressing in maternity clothes. If you are similarly small and looking for the perfect midi smock dress, I’d probably say get the smallest size you can so the dress doesn’t drown you.
It is now in the Topshop sale down to £15(trying not to be annoyed that I paid more than this)- what a bargain! Maybe you think it looks a bit like a grandma dress but that has never put me off something before. My grandma lived through the 50s and 60s so she had great style.
Anyway, I don’t want to bore you with my rambling on but I absolutely love it.
