knock me down with a feather

I have so many dresses competing for spot as my favourite right now. Motel Heidi feather print dress* is one of them, and quite possibly the top contender! Sent c/o Motel this is the first piece I have owned from the brand (aside from a pink and red striped rugby top when I was about 14!). I’d never bought from Motel before, convinced that the dresses were all bodycon and far too short; but this fit and flare style has won me over…it’s flattering, floaty and one of those pieces that you can’t help but feel good in.

I teamed it with my latest Sarenza aquisition; Georgia Rose Lalia Boots* currently in the sale at £60.60. I thought these might have been too pointed on my big feet, and maybe a little ugly, but in real life they are AMAZING. A little bit punky, beautifully comfortable and very versatile. Potentially a new favourite pair of boots.

Back at work today, I lose my lunch break to life support and defib training too. It’s going to be a long ‘un!

Looking on the brightside…it’s already Wednesday, so ALMOST the weekend!
