Denim jacket: Monki//Dress: c/o Siren London //Bag: Zara//Espadrilles: from Seville

I received this dress from Siren London the other day, sadly I missed the delivery and had to trek to the sorting office on Saturday. I waited in line with 40 other people and by the time the office was supposed to shut (30 minutes after I got there), most of us still hadn't been seen. We weren't going anywhere though and after a bit of commotion the staff agreed to stay on and serve us (power to the people and all that).
Anyway I love this dress as it's a little different to the usual stripes. Siren London have some pretty cool dresses on their website, and at bargainous prices too.
The bottom few pictures were taken near the Barbican- right in the centre of the city you find a strange urban jungle, high rise estates which are quite at odds with the surrounding snazzy offices but apparently they're listed..

  4. Oh man that is an intense piece of post related news! I'm impressed with the commotion, nothing like angry public to get something done! I know exactly where those flats are, my friend works in Moorgate so I've walked past a couple of times, I've seen other people take photos. They caught my eye as well, so unexpected in the City! xxx

  7. Oh how lovely you look! That striped frock is gorgeous and you look ever so chic. You styled it perfectly with the denim jacket :)
    I despise waiting in long lines, and only to be forgotten altogether! That's why I always try to catch the postman...

  11. Nautical stripes in the summer time are the best. I love how this whole look is a little Parisian inspired as well! What a perfect little surprise to come home too! The red sunglasses are the icing on the cake:) xx Marisa

  12. This dress is stunning! I think I'll pay them a visit soon, as I'm sure I'll find more beautiful things there. I also like the way you combined it with the espandrilles. They're kinda my go to shoes for summer. Love the last picture.
    Have a happy day!
