A walk in the rain

dress - gap, belt and bangle - vintage, shoes - accessorize, sunglasses - topshop

It decided to rain on Saturday, but I really wanted to wear my new dress and sunglasses so I pretty much ignored the weather and went for it anyway. Possibly a bit of a mistake as I ended up pretty cold and wet by the end of the day...

The dress was in the sale in Gap, and I saw it on a shop assistant (wearing a belt exactly like this, and shoes exactly like this...!) and chased her round the store to ask her if they were still selling the dress! So thank you to the random lady in Gap for inspiring this outfit!!

ahh, what a lovely outfit, and I love when something inspires you like that and you have to copy it. I never really think of maxi dresses though.

Lindsey said...

Haha, that's so cute that you chased her around the store. She must have felt pretty flattered.

You look great, rain or no rain!

These are my favorite types of outfits, ones that just appear effortless and laid back but still really cute. :)

Love this look! haha and love how you stumbled up on it. The dress looks super comfy and the flats are a great way to add a pop of color to an all gray look :)
