Conscious Collection

This dress has appeared on my Instagram and in a couple of Recently I'm Wearing posts, but considering how much I wear it, it was a bit of a surprise when I realised I'd never actually showed it off to it's full potential.

H&M sizing is a bit of a nightmare, so this dress is a full 3 sizes larger than my usual, but I still love it. The dress is from the H&M Conscious Collection, which is made from materials such as organic cotton and recycled polyamide and other sustainable sources. I'll be honest and say this is an added bonus for me, since it was the print that caught my eye in the first place.

H&M Conscious Collection Printed Shft & Clarks Henderson Flats

H&M Tropical Print Shift dress

Dress, H&M - Shoes, Clarks via Spartoo

It's a pretty perfect easy to wear work dress, Pull on, leave house, and the best bit- the print, at first glance (to me, in any case) looks really loud and in your face, but I always feel totally comfortable in it, and it always feels interesting without being obnoxious.

The shift style of this has the potential to be a little sack-esque, but the length seems to balance everything out. I often pull a jacket over this dress if I have to be in meetings or out and about too, which really pulls it in at the waist

Not bad for a £20 impulse buy.

This dress looks gorgeous on you, your hair is looking very lovely at the moment too Mrs! I hate H&M for the dodgy sizing, bought some bits on the website recently and had to exchange a few of them, always either too big or too small! (Usually the latter!) xo
