You look so good in blue, you look so good in blue.

Sometimes I think the dresses you completely fall for are the ones that you wait to wear. You can't wear them just ANYWHERE. They're not like the dresses you can't wait to put on, to wear to work, to a party, to dinner... these dresses are special. This is one of those dresses. I bought it SUCH a long time ago and popped it in my wardrobe. Every now and then I'd try it on, sigh, instagram it, and put it back. Not today, dress.

Of course, eventually you get to the point where you just HAVE to wear the dress, because you love it so much that not wearing it is a crime. So you decide to wear it to your nephew's 2nd birthday party. It gets lots of compliments. Mums and kids smile at you, and secretly you know it's because of the dress.

And then, maybe an hour into the party, a little girl asks you to pick her up and promptly wees all over your nice new dress.

If there's a moral to this story, it's probably that dresses are made to be worn, whatever happens. Or that machine washable items are always the best bet. And never pick up a child who is potty training.

Max C Dress - ASOS
Black suede heels c/o Spartoo

The giant parcel was a car transporter set for my nephew. I know - it's bigger than the average 2 year old! He loved it, though. Not sure there's any greater sight than a toddler losing his mind over a giant piece of plastic. This weekend, I'm avoiding my family because I'm coming down with a cold and don't want to inflict it on anyone. In fact, I'm overdue a massive sortout, so I'm going to clear out all the clothes that no longer fit and give them away or sell them online. Then I can buy more! Hooray!



  1. I have so many dresses that I'm waiting to wear! Love this one - the colour is beautiful. x

  2. You look absolutely gorgeous in this dress! I only hope the wee comes out :-/ xxx

  3. Oh I love that dress! I hate saving things for best, thing would never ever get used sometimes if we did that, it can make every day moments feel special too by using our best things :)

  4. Aaaaah looking gorgeous, I've kinda fallen for Max C dresses a bit at the moment, since I found loads from an eBay seller at a fraction of their RRP. I now have a couple of dresses that are sitting in my wardrobe for occasion only- blame T for that, all these stupid functions I have to keep going to.

    Enjoy the sort out, hope you're feeling a bit better. We've just defrosted our freezer and now I'm knackered again. Being ill is shit.

  5. Beautiful dress. Toddlers and pretty dresses just don't mix. Hey, at least it wasn't poo!! I have two toddlers and wardrobe full of dresses waiting to be worn. Before children I would only ever wear dresses,. these days it's all about the skinny jeans. I actually bought a very pretty dress today for a friends wedding.....but i'm going to have to wait until next year before I get to wear it. Hope the wee comes out.

  6. This dress is gorgeous, I really love the collar! Hope you feel better soon :)
