The 60s Shift Dress

This dress. 

I saw it on the Simply Be website and knew I would need to try this beauty, to see if the bib detail (which looked like the button detail stretched to the waist) would work on my bust. 

I'll be honest, I was also suspicious that the material would be more on the polyester end of the scale, and wanted to check that out too!

It arrived when I was in Turkey (which was sad as I wanted it to be one of my options for the Turkish weather) and I actually only got round to trying it on on Sunday.

Once it was one though, it was was ON! I wore it briefly to go shopping with Mam, and then to work today. 

(Yes, I know, still at my Mam's, with no full length mirror, I am sorry)

This is the type of dress 22 year old Kathryn would have LOVED. She would have worn it dancing, and fitted perfectly into the 60s aesthetic. 

And I felt amazing trotting about the office in it today. Bare arms be DAMNED!

And okay, so the cut of the dress is not really a shift dress, but the print, and the style is enough for this Mod!

The bib detail is a great little addition, and I can't tell you the last time I wore a collar buttoned up to the neck! 

I paired this with my trusty tights from Tesco, and my lovely new loafers from the Wide Fit section of New Look.

This Simply Be dress is now £28, and these shoes are now £12 - go grab yourself a bargain!

Much love my lovelies,
