O U T F I T | Free People Bell Sleeve Dress

30 September, 2015
Dress: Free People King's Road // Hat: ASOS // Boots: New Look (old) // Watch*: Daniel Wellington // Necklace: Vintage // Rings: H&M

It's been a while since I last shot an outfit post. I've been suffering with a pretty big ol' confidence crisis lately, so the last thing I've wanted to do is have my photo taken and then sift through around fifty photos highlighting my flaws (there's plenty o' those, I tell ya!). As bloggers I think we can all be guilty of comparing ourselves to our peers, especially when there's so much pressure to post these almost perfect, editorial photos of ourselves and the witty, intellectual copy to match. But, this weekend I decided to man-the-fuck-up and drag James out to shoot my favourite dress in the world right now. I mean, I'm preeeeetttyyy sure that it has been scientifically proven that the remedy to a low self-esteem is popping on the most magnificent, floaty dress you own, right?

This particularly romantic dress of dreams was bought from the Free People King's Road pop-up shop on it's very first day of opening. I'm not one to shy away from my feelings for Free People as I'm besotted with them. I wore it the weekend immediately after I bought it to an old friend's wedding and also wore it whilst exploring the cobbled back streets of Amsterdam. I'm all over anything absolutely anything with a 70's-esque bell sleeve, especially when they're as extravagant as this!

Daniel Wellington watches are a favourite amongst bloggers and I'm no exception. Their classic, analogue design makes them appropriate for everyday wear. This is the second DW watch to grace my collection, but this time I decided to opt for something with a bit more colour in. As an adopted Sotonian, I felt obliged to choose the Classic Southampton model, but I'm just not the kinda girl that can pull off pink. Red is more my thing, so I decided upon the Classic Canterbury instead. If you fancy 15% off of your own Daniel Wellington watch just use the discount code 'foxandfeatherblog' at the checkout. No need to thank me!
