I'm feeling a little under the weather today. I've not really eaten much this weekend, as I'd been in quite a bit of pain. I had a busy weekend catching up on work, as we lost power for a couple of days last week, which had me worrying about falling behind with a new project. I also managed to have a romantic Valentine's evening on Friday and was spoiled with pretty presents, as well as meeting my best friend on Saturday for a catch up and a wander. I managed a little more sewing; getting dress number 6 finished and making a start on number 7. Not a bad weekend in all, when you look at it like that. I've also been doing a little soul searching to try and find the answer to a friendship dilemma, but I think that deserves a post of it's own.

This dress has become something of a weekend staple over past weeks. It's actually the first Sugarhill Boutique item I've ever bought and actually kept. I had been a little wary of the smock shape, as I've had issues recently with some of the smock shapes I've bought. (ASOS fox smock, I'm glaring at you), but actually this isn't too oversized. I wouldn't suggest sizing down like I've had to with others. The fabric is nice, as well, although I have found that after a few wears it's starting to bobble a little.

I've taken to pairing it with these shoes, which I remember buying when I was in my first year of Uni, and then putting them away and never actually wearing them. I do a lot of that. I found them recently and decided they'd go nicely with this sequin cardigan. The heart necklace is an old favourite, recently rediscovered so you'll no doubt be seeing a lot of it in future posts.

You still have just over a day to enter my Bonne Chance giveaway, if you haven't already.

    1. I'm fairly sure it was from Matalan; it was definitely a long while ago.

  6. I'm sorry you've not been feeling well lately and I hope you're feeling back to your old self soon. Being ill is the worst. I love the dress you're wearing, it really suits you. I generally size down with smocks because I don't like anything too baggy, and sometimes a belt helps if you prefer a little definition xx

    1. Yeah, just dinner and drinks - which was fine by me as I was so tired by the end of last week. I actually went home from work a little early on Friday as the power was out again, and managed to fall asleep on the sofa during the afternoon - which hasn't happened for years :/
