Sometimes you just need a zero effort outfit. With stress levels at an all time high that is just what this outfit is. Dress + Shoes + Hat - can't get more basic than that. Well, I guess I could lose the hat... 

The dress was sent to me by M&S back when I took part in their blogger challenge last year. It's such a beauty - it looks great by itself so I never feel the need to dress it up. Plus navy blue and burnt orange are just about my favourite colour combination - it always makes me happy!

What's your go to outfit when you just don't have time to make an effort?

Love this skirt, definitely agree the colour combination is gorgeous.
I usually stick to skinny jeans and t shirts when I cannot be bothered to make an effort, I live in my skinny jeans! x

I looove this dress, great colours and really really suits you! My go to easy outfit is usually a bright dress a cardi and a beanie in winter, or a sundress in summer...

normally jeans and t shirt but if I need something smarter I have a maxi dress that when teamed with a scarf and ballet flats is just the ticket.

I wish I looked as good as you with zero effort! I tend to revert to floral dresses when I'm unsure, definitely the easy option!

...and I thought you were getting ready for holidays (also a good anti-stress recipe). In rainy London or somewhere in the sun - it looks so preeetty! xoxo

i think any kind of dress is an easy outfit for me...then the only thing to worry about is that shoes match somehow my belt or bag! :)

I want to look as good as you do on zero effort. It's such a gorgeous dress, and I love how it has bits of colour added in.

This is so lovely! I actually thought it was a skirt/top combo at first.
