Catch A Wave - Nautical Stripe Dress from George at Asda

When this stripy dress from George at Asda caught my eye by chance, Summer was well on it's way out. I left it on the rack, but couldn't get it out of my head so found myself heading back the next day wildly hoping it was still there. Thankfully it was - clearly this dress and I were destined to be BFFs as it's been my go to cute-but-easy-to-wear dress ever since I brought it home.

The dress is a Summer dream, but one which with the help of layers will be worn all the way through Winter too. Soft and stretchy with a cute red bow belt, it felt ready for sunshine filled boating adventures and lazy Sunday picnics. I can't wear it without feeling like some sort of plus size Elvgren Pinup! Ok, maybe more of a Hilda, but still... it's a dress which I feel great in.

Dress and belt: George at Asda
Hat: H&M
Shoes: Vintage
Boat Necklace: Tatty Devine

It's the sort of easy choice where you don't need to go wild on the accessories. I teamed it with a simple straw boater, some vintage red heels and a lovely boat necklace which was a bargain in the Tatty Devine sale a few months ago.

It's so ridiculous and cute and I love it! How adorable is the tiny anchor?

Thanks to a short holiday in the Lake District last week, I actually managed to wear this on an actual boat. Being something of a water baby, I was pretty much the happiest nerd on the planet as we crashed the waves taking in all the views with lots of other tourists.

I'll be doing a full blog post about the Lake District soon, but if you want a sneaky look at all the beautiful views, simply head over to my instagram.

Until next time,
