Hello little loves! I can hardly believe we've reached the remaining few days of April already - how has that happened? I trust you are all suitably sunkissed and rested after the beautiful weekend that has just graced us. I spent mine recovering from the final bout of cold, editing Aesthetic magazine and Aesthetic Online, and indulging in a lotta sweet goodness.

Retrouvailles (adj.) [French]; - the happiness of meeting again after a long time.
I bought this dress last week after seeing it on Emma's blog. Oh the dangerous world of blog reading…! The smock style is something I adore at the moment: I see it as a step up from the oversized T-shirts that I always wear, but finally the weather(!!) means I can swap out a couple of dresses and skirts. Anyway -- this smock dress is ridiculously oversized, I bought an S and I typically wear a UK size 8, but this honestly drowns me. I'm going to attempt to shrink it in the wash tonight, I think. Ah the joys of no plan Mondays!

I paired it with coral pink-orange belt to add a bit of colour. Not really one to venture into colours, but I'll get on to that in just a minute. The dress doesn't require any accessorising if I'm honest, but sometimes I'll add a skinny belt and knot it at the front, and other times a collar pin detail is perfect. Enter Ladybird Likes…

Ladybird Likes is an online destination for jewellery and accessory magpies - myself included. I feel ever so grateful and honoured to be somewhat of an ambassador for them! This heart collar detail is so simple and cute, matching perfectly with my dress. It'll look amazing against a nude or shell pink as well, or a pastel yellow shirt, should I ever finally find one to add to my wardrobe stocks.

Bit of a busy one this week as we've just moved offices at work and I've got lots of mini projects that I'm working on too. Aesthetic is ticking along nicely, and I'm seriously looking forward to the Pizza Express pizza making pardy with Lily on Wednesday evening! Hope you're all having a swimmingly good Monday, I shall see you tonight for our weekly Made in Chelsea Tweetalong - @winyeemichelle, 'Tweet me'! ;)
