Stars and Stripes

This isn’t going to be a lengthy post because there’s not much to say about this dress other than I love it. But I will say a bit more…

I don’t think any summer of mine is complete without a new jersey dress. In fact, I have to admit that lately I have been stuck in a bit of a style rut – sometimes I feel like I’ve lost my personal style, becoming a little too swept away with current trends and what will look good on the ‘Gram. Even though there are a lot of looks I have genuinely enjoyed trying out over the past few months, a part of me feels like Summer 2017 was more of my jam than Summer 2018.

But that’s enough moaning (and something I might go into in a separate post), because despite my supposed semi style rut, all feels right when I throw on a jersey dress.

The jersey, normally skater dress is a signature style for me that I can always rely on when I’m feeling down. This summer, it made sense to try this little number by ASOS – it has not only a flattering cut, but is also covered in what has become one of my favourite prints in 2018, rainbow stripes. What’s not to love?

It does have one detail that I wasn’t keen on – it comes with straps, which in all honesty feels kinda pointless. And as they’re too long for me, tucked in they go – I much prefer a bardot neckline after all…

I treated myself to this bag by Skinny Dip London because pink and red has become my absolute jam and it was reduced to £15. Yes, I got a kick out of matching stars and stripes. And yes, things like this make me feel like I got my style sh*t together.

And because stars and stripes aren’t enough, I threw some unicorns into the mix too. I got these unicorn ballerinas from ASOS over a year ago and I love them – one could call them a great conversation starter.

And why not top it all off with some hearts? I’d been wanting to visit this wall by artist Jimmy C in Borough Market for some time now – and yes, I dressed for the occasion. Because as well as rainbow stripes, skater dresses and unicorns, street art makes me happy too.
