new dressnew dress

The past 3 weeks I have been on a placement in a school. As a result of this I've decided that I definitely do not want to teach. I wasn't 100% sure anyway, but this sealed my decision. Anyway, wearing boring work clothes meant that by last wednesday, I was fed up of wearing black pants and boring tops and the heat was far too much. I got changed into this pretty summer dress from Topshop that I hadn't had chance to wear yet, even though I was only popping to the shops for some food. I did feel a bit overdressed, but it felt nice at the same time. The shoes are from Primark and actually look like rather good quality for Primark.

I have also realised that I actually have quite a lot of floral dresses now. I honestly can't help it - they're so nice and feminine that I couldn't resist them!

  3. the dress is fantastic and looks so gorgeous on you, it suits you really well.
    aw, so what are you going to do now? the same thing happened with my mum, both her siblings had become teachers and so she had her placement and hated it. It must have been a relief to be positive about it anyway, to have something seal your decision. good luck!

  5. Such a pretty dress =O
    So sad that I don't get Topshop or Primark where I live (switzerland)... or french connection or New look or... Oh well any High street shops apart from H&M & Zara
    Thanks for commenting by the way =)
    I also really like Zooey Deschanel style and I agree it's probably not her most exciting look but I loved it for those baby blue shoes ^^

  12. What a lovely dress! I love the crisp white with all the splashes of colour, perfect for summer!

    I really think you should go to Glastonbury next year! Its something that has to be done and whether or not you're keen on the artists that are playing, the atmosphere and everything else more than makes up for it :) and you can definitely do it in style with a pair of red Hunter's wellies!

  24. Ohhh! I have this dress too! I love the print on it so much!! I haven't actually worn it out yet. Can I ask if you wear anything under it as I find it shows your bra strap a bit. But I think I will just wear it as it is as the bow just covers it.

  29. That dress is really perfect! You look so wonderfully cute in it :)

    It's good to find out what you want to do - and not do. Do you have any idea what you'd try now?

  30. thank you very much for your lovely comment, honey!
    I prefer the understated look too myself, most of the girls at prom were in huge meringue dresses with big fake hair and orange tans....thats just not for me!! :)

  34. The shape of the dress is so cute & suits you so well :D

  35. Oh that dress is too good for Topshop, it ought to be vintage! (:

    Just curious, as a former teacher, but what about the placement made you decide you don't want to teach?

    ReplyDelete
  36. The dress is gorgeous! I'm sorry that you decided not to teach, but glad that you made that decision now! I teach with so many people who don't really love it, a few who hate it, but feel like they're stuck in this job. It's so horrid for their students. More power to you for having the boldness to make such a choice for yourself based on what you didn't love! -e
