OOTD // Rainbow Polkadot Dress

Can we talk about how amazing this dress is? It's my new favourite dress by a long shot, what with the bright polkadots and the adorable little pom pom trim. I also get a huge amount of compliments whenever I wear it- including from Rylan. Plus size polkadot dress

Now, this dress is part of the Sprinkle of Glitter collaboration with Simply Be. I am not the biggest fan of the Gleam YouTubers so, if I'm completely honest, that did put me off a little at first, but then I found I couldn't stop thinking about the dress so thought screw it! When I first tried it on and discovered it had pockets, I was over the moon! The slouchy fit did concern me so I sized down and, although it's still a bit baggy for my liking, it does fit well. The waist is very loose which isn't my preference in a dress, although my dislike for belts outweighs my desire for a closer-fitting waistband, and it gets a bit irritating having one shoulder dropping down all the time. I've also found it creases really easily but the design is just so cute that I can put up with all these little niggles.

As much as I would prefer to wear the dress with bare legs, this day was a little too cold for that so I donned my trusty Simply Be leggings (4 months on and still no holes or rips which is a huge improvement on the New Look ones I used to favour). I'm a huge fan of teaming leggings with my Missguided ankle boots as I feel like they create a sleeker line down my leg rather than the cut-off legging hem at my ankle which can sometimes look quite jarring, especially when the rest of my outfit is bright.

This combination of bright rainbow colours and black basics gave me the perfect opportunity to use my pride and joy- my Moschino Bubbles bag! I've never wanted anything so much in my life and, as I was shortly leaving teaching, I thought it would be nice to treat myself with my last pay cheque. Yes it was a completely frivolous purchase but I think I deserved it! I absolutely love my Bubbles! She has the cutest little face and the bag itself holds a surprising amount. I still can't believe she's mine!

This is my new favourite outfit for sure. I'll be wearing it at any given opportunity!

  3. The bubbles bag is actual goals oh my word! And that rainbow polka dot dress basically has me drooling. I have such a small budget for clothes at the moment that I'm totally living vicariously through blog posts

  4. This outfit is EVERYTHING gurl! I too was debating whether or not to purchase this dress and now may have to take the plunge because you're obviously my style icon and I must buy what you buy (sorta not kidding?)

    Also, I cannot believe you finally bought the Bubbles bag, I'm SOOOOO jealous! It looks so amazing and your nails complement it perfectly ^_^
