OOTD: George Lace Maxi Dress

It's been a whillleeeeee. Yes, I know, I've been absolutely terrible for updates recently, but this has been down to two things:

1. Work has been manic.
2. When the sun comes out it's like I lose my mojo. I don't really like getting my arms out and I don't really like showing any leg above the knee which means I spend the summer sweltering in shapeless dresses! WELL, NOT THIS TIME, SUMMER. YOU WILL NOT BEAT ME. 

That outburst leads me nicely on to the outfit I wore to work today. It's all well and good wearing your pants at home when it's hot, but at work they like me to look a bit smarter (I know, I tried it once and they sent me home). I saw this Lace Overlay Maxi Dress at George the other day and decided it was perfect; short sleeves to cover my arms and the jersey light enough to be cool on a hot day. 

Dress: George at Asda
Ballet pumps: George at Asda
Necklace: H&M

I'd say this was true to size as, although you can see how much room there is in the skirt, the crochet top half has no give whatsoever so a smaller size certainly wouldn't have fit on my arms. It's also VERY LONG. I'm 5'5" and you can't see my feet! Great for the tall girls, but shorties might have to get out their sewing kits. 

I promise I'll get back to updating more frequently. We're off to Brighton on Saturday so prepare for photos of me and my knotted handkerchief!
