raspberry





dress: h&m | belt: primark | cardigan: dorothy perkins | ring: topshop

Finally, a dress thats long enough that I don't need to worry about flashing every time I bend over the slightest bit! I'm not really that tall (5ft7) but every single dress or skirt I buy is always far too short so I was so happy when I found this in the 'basics' section of H&M for only £7.99. I think I'll need to go back and buy one in every colour!

I wore this out today for a few games of pool (I'm absolutely awful at it, I don't know why I even try!) and then went to Chiquitos for lunch. When I got outside it was pouring down. The weather is so unpredictable but at least I won't be sitting in work tonight whilst all my friends are out soaking up the sun and having a BBQ. ;)

  5. Hey Charlene, this is Michelle who you designed the biosoc logo for, I've been reading your blog ever since we corresponded!

    Love the colour of this dress, nothing beats finding a really good basic you can buy ever colour in, haha. What other colours did they have, it would be lush in a green!

    I've just set up a lifestyle blog about my life in Newcastle, have a peek if you get a chance!

  7. oooh nice! I don't like short dresses, don't want to wear leggings and tights all the time. £7.99 is fab, I bought a navy and white striped dress from there and it was nice and long. Need to snoop on the h&m site x

  8. I have two from H&M which are similar, with a sort of crochet bit on the waist, only £8 and they dress up and down so well.
    I love the raspberry colour
    Well done H&M!

  9. Love this colour it's gorgeous!! And I am exactly the same with pool, no matter how hard I try. The only time I seem to be any good at it is after a good few drinks

  10. The colour of the dress goes so well with your hair, it really does look lovely. At least with your height you can pull off the midi length. I'm 5ft 5 and they make me look like i've got footballers calves.

  12. Such a lovely dress! I was in H&M recently, can't believe I miss them. I have the same problem but with shorts, I have the feeling that I'm flashing my buttocks to the world everytime I bend or climb stairs.

  15. H&M are so good with their 'basics' such a gorgeous colour and can literally dress it up or down with anything! love itttt X X X

  16. Ooh, the colour of that dress is lovely, and it contrasts really well with your nails!
    I've actually had the same problem with a lot of dresses, lately - and at 5ft 5, I'm pretty short, so it's not an issue I'd generally expect! You can't really go wrong with H&M basics, though, I'm always quite impressed with their stuff.

  18. Basic dresses that don't flash bum when you bend over are becoming increasingly difficult to find! The colour on this one goes really nicely with your blue nails.

  23. God, I am so with you on the length thing. I'm 5ft 6 which isn't especially tall, but feel like so many of the dresses in the shops are just too bum-skimming, even with tights or leggings. Oasis are my go-to at the moment - above the knee, but not knicker flashing short. They have some nice bright block colour ones in at the moment with Peter Pan collars which are really pretty.

  25. That dress is fab! We don't have an H&M here in Iceland where I live, but my boyfriend is going to Berlin next weekend and I want that dress so badly I am sending him to H&M to look for it! haha..unfortunately it isn't on their website..so he will be sent to Germany with a picture of you wearing the dress! I hope you don't mind!
    Your blog is so fantastic! Been a follower for ages. Love your style :)
