The other day while Nick was in a meeting I was left to my own devices and decided to browse the rails at TK Maxx. I spied this beauty of a jumper from a little way off and made a beeline for it. I was pleased to discover when I arrived that it was in my size, was by & Other Stories and was £16 instead of the original £45. Winner.
These pictures honestly don’t do the snuggly, chunky knit the justice it deserves.

I was recently contacted by French Connection who kindly gifted me this dress as a way of promoting their sale. It’s safe to say it’s my new favourite dress. I felt like a fairy princess the second I slipped it on (and one step closer to being Rosie Londoner!)
It’s weird because this is totally not my usual style, I’m never usually this girly but I was instantly drawn to this dress, like it was calling out my name. It also fits like a glove so maybe it was just meant to be!
I have to be honest with you. I have no idea what a ‘scuba’ dress is. In my mind, anything with the word ‘scuba’ describing it should be made out of wetsuit material. I thought my confusion would be cleared up on the arrival of this dress but it wasn’t. On the website it’s described as being made out of ‘scuba’ material which it then says is ’95% viscose, 5% elastane’. It is quite a bit thicker than your regular cotton dress but I wouldn’t go scuba diving in it (!). If anyone could clear this up for me that would be awesome.
Material confusion aside, I love this dress. I’d never tried a midi style before as I’m not overly tall and I was worried it would make my calves enormous but you know those times when you get a smile on your face the instant you slip a dress on and you just know it’s right? Yeah I had that.
