Satchels & Swans - Outfit of the Day.

I have to admit that I have been a bit of a shopaholic this year - especially in the past few months! I don't know why, but I have just been going on continous spending sprees which has made both my debit and credit card weep. However, my wardrobe thanks me for the recent contributions which has resulted in mostly more dresses which there is no space for!

One of my new additions is this cute Swan Wrap Dress from ASOS:

 Dress: ASOS, Jeans: Dorothy Perkins, Satchel: Cambridge Leather Satchel Company, Shoes: Deichmann, Ring: Tiffanys & Co.

I've worn this dress both as an actual dress, and  as a tunic with some skinny jeans for when it is a bit colder! It has easily become one of my favourites for several reasons:

1) It is a wrap dress which automatically gives it the 'ballerina' feel which appeals to the ballerina inside me (which was betrayed by my lack of co-ordination and grace as a child). 
2) The detail that goes into the swan print - the swans have shading and a detail in colour which just shows the extra care that has gone into the design of the print. 
3) With a wrap dress, it cinches in your waist which is always a plus in my opinion!
4) It can be dressed up or down for any occasion, making it well worth its' cost (£18)!

As you can see for this post, I dressed it down for a 'day look' with some deep purple skinny jeans, my beloved satchel, and some neutral pumps - perfect for a bit of shopping - but dressed up a little with my new Tiffanys ring which will be the topic of another post. 

Do you have a lot of multi-purpose dresses? Do you have a favourite print?
