I heart robot..

Amy Dress: Boden*
This beautiful Boden dress turned up a few weeks ago and has been hanging around willing me to wear it ever since. But then the weather got all warm and stuff and I didn't think it was quite the thing. I had visions of leafy outsidey-ness for this dress, as Boden makes me think of the out of doors and exploring. Not that I was really exploring this garden, but still.

Heart brooch: present from Sarah
So, what can I say about the Amy Dress other than I absolutely adore it? The colours are beautiful blues and sea greens on a pale grey background, which I think just work so perfectly together. It's sleeves are the perfect length, which is praise indeed coming from me, who doesn't often wear dresses with sleeves! The skirt is such a fabulous full, Fifties style that it makes you want to twirl.

I wore it with my Irregular Choice robot heels, which are almost the same blue and have tiny red robots printed on them, so I decided to add my favourite red heart brooch to the dress to match them. Whilst on the heart theme, I figured it was the perfect opportunity for my new Pepa Loves clutch to have it's first outing.

I know I'm going to wear this dress a LOT this coming season. I've already added it to my virtual wardrobe app and have been trying it out with mustard cardigans and all of my coats. I think it's safe to say that you'll be seeing a lot more of it. And that's only partly to do with the fact that it's one of my best twirling dresses...

    1. I really love the sleeve length and have been trying to replicate it on my recent makes. Thank you, it was quite funny to have a willing photographer for a change as M refuses to take photos, ever!

    1. I do think it can be hard to tell from the photos sometimes, it was a LOT nicer than I'd expected when it arrived, I must admit!
