The Tartan Dress

Primark Dress / M&S Tights / Topshop Socks / New Look Boots / Pandora Bracelet

Unless you've been hiding under some kind of fashionless rock for the past few months (and I really hope you haven't!) then you'll be aware that the biggest trend for aw13 is definitely tartan- this Scottish print is everywhere and can be found on everything from scarves to socks to full on outfits. While I've always loved tartan and have been sporting a tartan scarf since I was bought one for Christmas last year, I've only just made the jump from accessories to fully adorning myself in outfits of the checked print and this Primark dress has to be my favourite tartan thing ever. I refer to it as the tartan dress because it was worn on Primark's aw13 adverts and since then the whole country has gone crazy for it. I was lucky enough to pick it up on a naughty lunch time shopping trip in Chelmsford and it's just as perfect as I wanted it to be. A really flattering a line shape which clinches in at just the right place with an adorable preppy collar and cute puff ball sleeves- for only £15 I can't get enough of it! I'm wearing it here for the Next blogger workshop simply styled with dolly socks, cut out boots and braids. My dad said I looked like a 12 year old school girl but Vivianna Does Makeup and Lily Pebbles, who I was lucky enough to meet at the workshop, loved it so I think I'll take their comments on board. Sorry dad.

Talking of Primark I've had a really amazing week as I did a Christmas video shoot for Primark on Friday with two of my besties Nick and Faye. I'll be doing a whole post on this once the video is live but there are lots of fun snaps on my Instagram if you want to have a sneak peek. Other than that I've had a rather successful week at work and a rather lovely weekend with my boyfriend which included a Queens Of The Stone Age gig at Wembly on Friday. Ah life is pretty damn good right now!

  6. I love this dress and I am hoping I will still be able to find it when I go to Primark during the week. I don't have a Primark near me so I have had to wait until we are near one! It looks amazing on you too :)

  12. I have wanted a tartan dress ever since I saw Zoe Sugg wear one but sadly I haven't found ANY because I don't currently live in the UK and they're suprisingly hard to find anywhere else... Soon as I go back though I'm definitely getting my hands on one! x

  13. I really like your new dress. I think this is my new recommended outfits too :) I wish I could have capabilities like yours and I really like how you released this on my birthday!!!! I really wish I could get one of your outfits I just really like them :)

  14. Do place your socks in the dryer, simply press out the water from them and hang to dry. This will help keep up the first state of your socks and will keep them from getting free.
