Jack Wills Liberty Print Sweatshirt Dress (and red shoes)

With a partly sunny but partly rainy day forecast, I thought that it would be a good idea to wear this Liberty sweatshirt dress from Jack Wills. It took me weeks to get the right dress in the right size during which time it had been reduced pretty heavily and although it was all a bit of a faff, it all turned out OK in the end.

Interestingly of the assistants in Jacques Vert in House of Fraser commented on how much she liked my shoes and how although she wouldn’t have thought of putting them with this particular dress, they actually worked OK and wasn’t it funny how sometimes things that didn’t really go at all could look quite good together. I must admit that I wasn’t quite sure whether to take it as a complement or an insult but it did make me smile.

I think that fairly casual sandals, skater trainers, converse, flip flops and birkenstocks work well with the style of this dress but hey, what do I know? (Don’t answer that!) I’m hoping to get plenty of wear out of it during our Cornwall/Guernsey holiday in the summer.

Hope that everyone’s week is going well so far – I know it’s early days but it feels like it’s been going on for a while already….

[BTW I would just like to say to the lady from Cardiff who emailed me several weeks ago now, my responses keep getting returned, so if you would like to email me again with your telephone number, I will happily call you.]

    Please could you tell me where your bright red sandals came from? I am in love! I have just bought a pair from Saltwater but they have not arrived yet and I think I prefer the style of yours. I am a wheelchair user though, so they must be flat. Look forward to hearing from you.P.s. great dress too. Di you have a link?
