Choies smock dress | Beaumont bags satchel

Outfit post | White lace smock dress and brown leather satchel

I have not taken this smock dress off in well over a month. I can't bear to. It's just so white, and floaty, and comfy, I will ignore Liam's jibes of "have you joined the Amish?" and dance around quite happily in the knowledge that Rosie and I own an absolute gem of a day dress.

I'm still not sure whether it is meant to be this big on me, or whether I inadvertently ordered the wrong size, but it is certainly on the generous side. If it wasn't quite so stark white I would baptise this my curry dress.

The dress is out of stock now unfortunately, but there are lots of similar ones still available, including here and here!

It always warms my cockles when I get to feature a Sheffield brand, and today is no different thanks to a lovely email dropping into my inbox from Beaumont Bags. Handmade, the company is based in Dronfield, they're a sustainably sourced brand which results in gorgeous pieces that are well-made and so soft to the touch. And for £35, that really is fantastic value for a one-of-a-kind piece!
