Outfit Post: 2 Ways To Wear A Smock Dress

Bohemian Spring Outfit

My lovely friends at sent me this dress. I have a bit of a hate/hate relationship with the ever popular ‘smock’ dress ;) but I adored the print of this one and the colours were just made for me so I thought I’d give it a go. For once, Oasap’s sizing being a bit on the small side really worked for me as what really puts me off smock dresses is the ridiculously over the top sizing. I love the way this one creates a nice hourglass shape, whilst still skimming over my lumps and bumps and flaring out, smock-style.

Casual Autumn Outfit

Adding a flowing, jersey cardigan, a long necklace and a floppy, felt hat gives a soft, boho style to the dress which would be great to wear out for the day or night; comfort and style! Secondly I changed my tights for denim leggings and my cardigan for a casual lumberjack shirt to create an outfit perfect for a long walk through the woods with your favourite pooch.

I’m still not sure I’m swayed on smock dresses in general, but I love this one! If you want to avoid that sack-like look too, try sizing down on smock dresses from other stores, but for me at a size 12/14 this one from Oasap is the perfect fit.

What do you think of this trend? Will you be sizing down if you make a purchase?

In the past couple of weeks and I’ve been up against a lot of doubts for my decisions. The simple answer to these doubts has been, because I want it all.

I don’t want to settle, I don’t want to accept what I’m handed; I want to create my perfect world. I want to see the world as I think it should be, not how it is. I want to have my dreams sitting there in my hands and there is no good reason why I can’t. I get told I won’t have enough money, but who defines what is enough? I get told I can’t change the world, but who says so?

I was brought up never to ‘want’, it wasn’t polite. I had to “would like” everything. Now I’m an adult I believe there are some things you need to want, some things you need to desire so desperately that you won’t stop until they’re yours. It may sound selfish to you, but I’m not asking for someone to gift it to me. I’m not ungrateful. I want to work hard for everything I gain so why can’t I have it all? M. Ward has it down, “A sip or a spoonful won’t do. No, I want it all.”

And I’m here to tell you, it’s OK for you to want it too.
