What Milly Wore: Joules Marilyn Dress

Well fancy seeing you here :)
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine,
I have to admit I'm not the worlds greatest fan of the heat, but it's alright I suppose!

Here is an outfit I wore to work earlier in the week.
I was kindly sent this dress to review by Joules Online
as soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect for work, picnics, summer bbqs, even weddings!
The perfect combination of smart/casual/comfy.
The green/floral combination is gorgeous.
 It's called the Marilyn Dress, in the colour Apple, & I'm wearing a size 14
Size wise it's pretty spot on, quite a bit of stretch which is great.
If anything its ever so slightly generous so if you are between sizes 
or smaller on the bust then maybe size down.
 It's really wearable, very comfy and no word of a lie I got 5 compliments on it throughout the day!
The quality is great, the material  is not thin or flimsy,
and my favourite thing?
The fact that the wrap around top does not gape!
Being quite busty I find it very difficult to find dresses I don't fall out of,
this was cut perfectly to avoid any mishaps.

I wore my dress with
Gold Leather Topshop Ballet Pumps (ancient, in my shoedrobe forever)
RayBan Wayfarer Sunglasses (my go to this summer)
Tatty Devine Small Gold Parakeet Necklace

 & My Rose Gold  Leather Cambridge Satchel Company Satchel
which I got in their clearance section a couple of months ago.

 Here is my face/make-up
Red lippie - Chubby Stick
Gold Eyeliner - Topshop
Mascara - YSL

Overall I'm really impressed with the dress,
Joules is a brand I've always liked the look of but never purchased from
Their prices are a little on the high side but the quality is great, 
so if your looking for a special occasion or you can grab something in the sale then even better.
They've got plenty of summer dress designs that I will definitely be checking out!

See you soon :)
