|Trellis Dress: Laura Ashley // Shoes: Irregular Choice|
At one point, Laura Ashley were definitely my go-to for dresses. A few years back, it seemed as though every dress in their collection was very heavily 50s inspired, and I loved it. Map prints, florals, you name it. Then, they kind of had a couple of years where their dresses didn't seem to be the kind of thing which would suit me (I'll never have the right body shape to feel comfortable in A-line anything!)
So, until last week, when I was walking past my local store, it had been an absolute age since I'd bought anything new from Laura Ashley. In the middle of their window display was this dress, part of the archive collection (which seems to be all about bringing back some of their older prints and styles), and that it was in the sale.
I'm feeling Monday as a new start this week - very much needed all round.
