The Sonia girl runs away to the circus

Back in March, I asked Barbie of the Day to help me showcase the Sonia Rykiel for H&M pieces that I'd bought at the collection launch. I'd been promising some snaps of my buys, so I thought it was a fun way to share them with you.

But, as I'd felt so guilty at my overspend, I've been rationing myself to just one new Sonia piece a month. May sees the turn of the Sonia stripy dress. These rainbow stripes were a core theme to Rykiel's collection for H&M, translating into everything from sweaters and scarves to tights and socks.

With the circus in town, the Stickman and I couldn't resist a little photoshoot. I hope you like it! And I hope you like Barbie's homage to Sonia, too.

Style tip: a cotton-knit dress is perfect right now when the weather can't decide if it's hot or cold; try ASOS or Dorothy Perkins. And check out the crochet dresses at Topshop and River Island, too - very Mark Fast, and perfect for flinging over a bikini when the weather hots up. The essential festival dress I think.
