motel vintage paisley print penny dress

(moody bitch face haha)
Cardigan - Primark
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

wah how pretty is this dress? I won't lie, I've worn it SO much but I just love it!! I'd been after something paisley for a while, mainly a shirt but most of them seemed to be in dark colours & I wanted to inject some colour into my wardrobe so when I spied this on the Motel it was literally love at first sight. It's an oversized smock dress, a style that can look absolutely hideous on my small frame but Motel seem to have got something right with the sizing because this is just the perfect amount of oversized-ness (is that a word?). Other smock dresses I've tried completely drowned me & looked really unflattering, I'm looking at you ASOS, so I'm really pleased I found one that fits nicely! I possibly own the exact style in 3 different prints now, oops. The cardigan is the fluffy primark one that is a current blogger fave atm, it's amazing though, super fluffy & cosy, perfect for snuggling in when it's coldddd! Dom says I'm like a teddy bear when I wear it haha. I've worn this dress on a night out with black wedges & lil ankle socks (sorry the pic is sooo bad) but also casual with flats or sandals. Also a little bit of topic from the outfit but I'm so pleased with my hair atm. I was going through a stage of hating it because it was in the worst condition ever & I couldn't cope it was just awful but I decided to be strict with my haircare routine & it's never looked better! Thank you Philip Kingsley Elasticizer,  you life/hair saver!! Anywayssss I'll probably do a post on that this week, I'm off to prepare the Sunday roast for us now (:
