Sunday Style - Black pattern dress

leather jacket


I am slowly switching up my wardrobe with a few practical pieces as I am still breast-feeding baby G although he is going for longer periods during the day time and recently John and I managed a quick little lunch date so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this little patterned black dress from H&M. I have never been a huge dress wearer, perhaps because I have always found them restrictive in some way but this dress is perfect for me as it's loose fitting, very soft and I love the side pockets and I could easily wear this all day.

Black and monochrome have always been natural choices for myself but I am always looking at ways to add some colour or extra dimension to an outfit such as this pattern and have paired it up with a geometric necklace from Top Shop, Jacket from M&S, Gold slip-ons from Zara and a Ralph Lauren Bag, for an easy casual springtime look.

Some of you may have also noticed an added accessory - my glasses. I have been experiencing headaches for a few months and have been struggling to focus on the screen while working so I made an appointment with an Optometrist and it turns out I am long sighted as well as having a Stigmatism. I thought picking a pair of glasses would be a doddle but when you have never really worn them before it's actually quite hard, in the end I opted for these rounder more vintage style as well as a moe square pair. I did a little vlog about my new hair and glasses, check it out below.
