Laura Ashley Latest..

LA AW14 Floral
Floral Print Dress: Laura Ashley
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that when I was in Stratford, I couldn't resist picking up a new Laura Ashley dress. This is by far their standout dress for the AW14 season, for me, and I definitely couldn't leave the store without it. Any excuse to feed my Laura Ashley obsession!

Cardigan: Matalan
Although the cotton sateen is nice and light, meaning there's nothing wrong with wearing it when it's sunny, there's something about the mixture of colours that had me save it for a chillier day.

I paired it with my Kim Bow heels. They struck me as the perfect match for this, so I was glad that I'd not worn them already for the #irregularchoicechallenge. The octopus necklace was a present which my sister brought back from China for me, a few years ago, and I finished the whole lot off with my trusty grey-ish cardigan. It basically reminds me of a school cardigan, and I wear it with just about anything to make it "work-appropriate". (In my mind, anyway).

  1. No, no.no!!!! I refuse to accept Autumn!!!!! Not excited and mustn't buy any coats (bah humbug!!!)
    However, that dress is so pretty!!! I'm off to a wedding today and I considered wearing a Laura Ashley one I don't wear much but in the end, finding a perfect coral cardigan in the duty free yesterday swung it for me to wear a Joy dress that I've only worn once ever!! X

  2. I love this dress on you, and the shoes look gorgeous with it!
    I like how the grey cardigan makes anything 'work appropriate' - I can just imagine you turning up for work wearing a gold sequinned jump suit and your grey cardigan!

  5. I'm super excited for AW, summer is so un-reliable and you don't get to wear half your nice clothes...at least in Winter you know you're damn well going to need at least six new coats ;) x
