Spring OOTD ft. Joy The Store

Wednesday, May 04, 2016
You have no idea how much out of my comfort zone this outfit is, I mean, there are three colours and bright colours at that - the brightest colour I wear is denim...However one of my new year's resolutions was to wear more colour and it is spring *apparently* so it seems like a great time to add  some colour to my wardrobe.

I was kindly sent a couple of items from the lovely people at Joy The Store and I'm SO happy with them. I chose the *Brave Soul Alisha Smock Dress (£25) in a size Small which is just the style of dress that I love! The smock style is floaty, summery but it's still flattering and perfect for concealing food babies, yes, this is a thing I think about them choosing dresses...

I love the print, it is different to anything else I have in my wardrobe and it will be perfect for a summer holiday as it's lightweight and airy. I'm really petite but the dress is a good length on me as it falls just above my knees. The overall size is perfect too and I'd definitely recommend this dress!
I also received the adorable *Louche Ives Cardigan (£30) in a gorgeous sunshine yellow shade that is so far out of my grey, black and navy comfort zone but I love it! I think the, please excuse this phrase, pop of colour is perfect paired with a relatively neutral outfit. The cardigan is so soft, it's perfect for spring in England were it's sunny but still a little chilly *whenever you want to warm up, English weather, whenever you want!*.

The cardigan has adorable bows over the poppers, the poppers are so much better than the fiddly tiny buttons on the other cardigans I have. It is a little short and I usually go for longer cardigans, but this will be perfect for spring/summer.

Overall, I'm really happy with both of the items from Joy The Store, I can't recommend them enough! Here's my mini wish list:
