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?

Outfit Post: Flowers in the Garden

Day to Night Outfit

I’d been chatting to the lovely folk over at Rare London about doing some work on an anti-throwaway fashion campaign and they kindly provided this dress to originally feature in my Dressember challenge, but due to circumstances beyond our control it wasn’t possible at the time. However I will be revisiting the challenge over the coming weeks and this dress will be perfect to show how versatile one piece of clothing can be.

I wore a variation of this outfit to a friends house for dinner; I wasn’t sure whether the other couples would be smart or casual so it gave me the perfect escape plan to put on a bit of red lipstick and let my hair down if I needed to be more dressy, but was also ideal for what ended up being quite a physical round of Cranium ;) (We lost!!)
It was so easy to give this dress a casual edge with boots and jeans, but it also has a beautiful cut that would make it perfect for a more dressy night out. I’m looking forward to showing you guys how I make a new outfit out of the same pieces from my closet and hopefully we can begin to put an end to redundant clothing piling up in our wardrobes.
