A Stripy Rope Dress

{Cue the worlds smallest violin} I very nearly decided to call it quits on blogging, as some might have guessed from my long absence. It started to feel like a chore and not something I was enjoying any more; the blogging slump that is well documented in the blogsophere. We all get it, I have had it many times over the 4 years I have been sharing on my little corner of the internet. This time it felt different, but I thought I would give it a few weeks to see if I missed it.

Last week I started to get a niggling anxiety to post, I had lots of things in my wardrobe that I wanted to share. I think that is the bottom line of it, I knew I should post when I wanted to, when I really have something to say! We are told over and over that we should post all the time, consistently and to a schedule. Which I suppose you should if you are a full time blogger. But I don’t aspire to do it for a career. I love having it as a hobby and a sideline. I will always be an erratic poster but at least I will be enjoying it, rather than stressing myself out. Hopefully that will also mean quality content for people to look at.

Saying that because I have been away for so long, I have a massive amount I want to post about now.

I was browsing twitter the other week and Alexandra of The Frugality (you should really check out her blog, her style is killer) posted up a photo wearing this ASOS stripy rope dress. It was one of those dresses I knew I needed immediately; I love stripes and have a little penchant for rope detail. I clicked through and spotted my size was out of stock! I haven’t been this sad about a piece being out of stock in my size in a long time. I am constantly browsing ASOS new in, so was mad with myself that I had missed it.

I thought I would check again and there was a size 10 that was obviously a return. I am really more of an 8 and this dress is a tad too big for me, but I love it so much I can put up with it. Many apologies if you love this dress as much as I do and your size isn’t in stock!

The slider sandals are a first purchase from Finery, which I believe is a very new brand. I just adore their products! Really smart, unique pieces and the prices are very reasonable too.

    I completely understand what you mean about a blogging slump – you’re right, sometimes waiting for inspiration does the trick! This is a gorgeous blog post and lovely photos. Also I love Finery but have yet to buy anything from them, you might have just persuaded me 🙂

    I love the slightly oversized fit! That rope belt is perfect too. Thank goodness you didn’t quit Kylie, I wouldn’t be able to cope – I’ve put your absence down to school holidays! 😉
