Honest Mum in Topshop monochrome dress

Earrings and dress: Topshop, sandals and vest: M&S, bag: gift shop (no label).

I won’t lie, I’m not 100% convinced about this monochrome Topshop dress due to the fact it has two cut-out pieces under the boobs (say what?) but I went with it anyway (pairing it with a vest of course) and it’s winning me round in its own weird way. It’s not going to be a dress I wear lots of, but it will definitely come away on holiday with me in the future, proving itself as a beach-staple flung over a bikini or swimsuit.

I’ve given it an autumnal-ready makeover here when Windsor got windy last week, pairing it with this TU cardigan and M&S sandal boots. Isn’t Windsor the most beautiful babe by the way? Posing in front of the castle makes me feel like a queen with her little princes.

We’re so ridiculously happy here, we feel like we’re living on holiday and have to keep pinching ourselves that this is now our life: walking everywhere, being neighbours with the queen (when she’s holidaying here) and basically living out our best lives.

We had a tough old year last year and it feels like finally happiness is seeping it’s way back in, plastering over the cracks and making us all strong, and a little bit sassy again.

Windsor truly suits us and despite not being totally sold on this dress, I’m embracing change in style like I have my life (and that one turned out well, hey)!

Look at Xander’s face-if he’s not posing solo, he’s not happy!

    I like how you styled the dress, and especially with the addition of the red earrings!!
    I had to laugh at the boys—I have photos of myself at that age, with those same expressions….

    I think you look gorgeous but the addition of a vest top certainly helps to preserve your modesty, Vicki!! It’s a very pretty dress 🙂

    I’m not sure about the dress on you for a different reason, it’s just too pale for you. Without the cardigan you’d look washed out. You look so much better in the bold bright colours we usually see you wearing
