Her Name Was Fly Girl

 So this dress is nearly a year old, I bought it last February from Boohoo whilst at home recovering from an operation and excessively internet shopping and for some reason, it's only just made an appearance on the blog now. I find this particularly odd as I wear it ALL the time. It's perfect for the colder months if you're still into dresses as it's got long sleeves and is a nice thick cotton. 
I've styled it with this Topshop cardigan which you might have seen in my haul video here, my new asos backpack and my failsafe Topshop beanie. I think that sometimes I forget that I can be ridiculously comfortable in clothes other than pajamas and this outfit is one that I'll be rocking probably all too much over the next few months mainly for that comfort factor. Mmm snuggly.

I'd been wanting to pick up a backpack for a while now as I find that any time I bring my camera out with me for the day, My shoulders and back are absolutely killing from the weight of it as I usually wear a satchel or over the shoulder bag. I know how dramatic I sound but I promise you, it's a lot more likely that this is all due to how much of a pathetically weak human I am than because I'm being dramatic (which I'm totally not.) It's got a small zipped pocket inside where I keep my phone and keys etc and then I just chuck the rest of my belongings in and I'm off. No more back ache and a lot less faffing. Perfect.


 What's your go-to comfy outfit?

  2. This cardigan looks beautiful! I bet it's so warm.. although I still think I'd need 3 coats on top at the moment! The beanie and dress really make the look as well! xx

  4. You look gorgeous, loving the dress. Feeling you on the post-surgery shopping fandango as well, I did the exact same thing after mine last year. I think I was possibly Boohoo's best customer for the week. xo
