We all scream for ice cream!

Isobel Dress: Emily + Fin
Trinkletina Heels: Irregular Choice
Cardigan: Matalan
I took these photos shortly after hitting my head pretty badly, which is perhaps why I look in so much pain in them. I couldn't miss an opportunity to take photos of this dress, though. When I went to Pure, I knew that one of the things I wanted to look for was the new Emily and Fin collection, as I'd seen lookbook photos of this dress, but wanted to see it in real life, as sometimes these things don't quite look the same.

I wasn't disappointed. Well, not with the dress anyway. The dress I loved. What I wasn't too thrilled about was the fact that I had to wait eight weeks before it would be available to buy. I pre-ordered my ice lolly print Isobel dress (this print also comes in the button-front Jessica style, which Sarah has) from Aspire and when it came through the letterbox, I have to admit I'd almost forgotten about it. It was a lovely surprise and I wasted no time in wearing it. Also, if you do check Sarah's version out, she is giving away an Emily and Fin dress on that post, too!

Dressed with my most-worn basic neutral cardigan, which in my head makes just about anything office-friendly, and my recent pair of Trinkletina heels, the Isobel dress took me from the office to a little party in the evening and seemed to work OK for both. I guess I'm rather lucky with my relaxed dress code.

I'm definitely looking forward to wearing this dress in the height of summer, sans cardigan, to eat ice cream in the park!


  1. Are you ok hun??? Really hope you are! Keep an eye on yourself, just in case you have concussion.
    You have the Ice-cream dress!!!!! I totally fell in love with it on Sarah's competition post (ahrgh, what an amazing giveaway- reaaaaaaaaaaaally want to win it!!!!) and I like the fact yours is a little different. and it looks great with the Trinkletinas- how clever of you to spot the ice-cream charm and make the link! xx

    1. I'm OK, people did keep telling me to go to A+E but I didn't. :(
      I love the print on this dress, I have always had issues with button fronts, which is odd because I'm not even particularly well endowed.

  2. your irregular choice shoes are always beyond amazing x

  3. Sorry to hear you hit your head. I hope you're not in too much pain and feel better soon. You look amazing in these photos, though! The outfit is perfect on you. That dress is amazing! I'm in love with the print; it has to be the summer-iest print ever! It'll be perfect during the summer- especially with orange or yellow pieces! I'm also in love with the shoes- so many pretty patterns! xx

    1. It passed after a little while, thank you x
      I can't wait for more summery weather so that I can wear this dress with sandals!

  4. yes, the perfect dress for summer indeed!

  5. Ouch! Hope you're ok now?
    This is indeed a perfect summer frock, the colours are great - imagine the colour combos you'll be able to create in this!

    1. Yep, I wore it into town the other day and had to buy a cardigan to go with it from a charity shop, as I'd underestimated the cold - lime green!
