Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor


My fixation with the Breton top has extended (both in liking and length) to the Breton-striped dress. A simple classic, it's so French, so chic. There is plenty of choice in the shops at the moment. And, while I can't afford Twenty8Twelve's sexy, scooped-backed version, this H&M one is definitely within my budget at £9.99.

I like it's body-con style which skims the curves in a flattering and slimming way, the scooped neckline which flashes just the right amount of demure flesh, and the bracelet sleeves which are a fraction longer than three-quarter-length options. Most, of all, I like how it makes me feel like I'm on holiday - even when I'm not.

Oh, and the finishing touch? A recent birthday gift from my friend Kirsty, which plays on the nautical theme: a cute crocheted anchor brooch by Coquelicot. Sweet.

  1. I quite like that outfit, I like the usual nautical look but I also like the body-con twist to it. Great!

  2. Kirsty says the anchor brooch is from Family Tree, a gorgeous little shop at London's Exmouth Market.
