Well, the sun came and went here in the UK, what a shock! I’d probably been a bit hasty in bringing out all my summer clothes and stuffing my winter things away, so I’ve been trying to adapt my summer clothes for this colder weather. I was sent this gorgeous French Connection dress from the lovely girls over at Zalando a few weeks back, when it seemed like summer was here, and I wore it so many times as it was so easy to throw on with some spring platforms, a cute little belt and a light denim jacket. You’ll probably see what I mean in an outfit post over summer!

Now the Arctic conditions have returned, I’ve realised the dress is also great for colder weather with this khaki jacket and ASOS heels. I love injecting colour into all my outfits, so these shoes are great with their orange band. Also, not sure if you can see in the pictures but I’m wearing a cute little belt with SMILE across it in gold letters. It’s always nice to spread a little positivity! When the weather is even colder, this dress would be great with some fun leggings or tights and boots. It could also be good for work too with a smart blazer and flats depending on your office’s dress code.

PS. Do check out Zalando’s website – they have free shipping and returns, so like ASOS you don’t have to worry about P&P prices. I’m always on the look out for new online stores, as I don’t have much time to go to actual stores that often, and I love how they have so many brands under one ‘roof’ (as it where). The Zalando store is MASSIVE, so I’d recommend browsing for items or brands to save trawling through stuff for hours. Zalando have given me a code for my readers to get you £5 off all orders over £50 (excluding sale items), so that will hopefully get you started! Just input zal5discount when you checkout. Let me know what you think!
