Tropical Delight OOTD with Bonmarche*

Hiya lovelies!

Last week the lovely Stef from Bonmarché got in touch to ask me if I wanted to review something from their new in range. I chose this absolute bobby dazzler and decided to pick out the yellow tones in it for this outfit. I could equally have mixed it with blue, chartreuse or zebra print accessories. I love a versatile dress.

It's a very comfortable polyester/elastane mix with zebra print and watercolour effect chartreuse, yellow and blue sections. It's really unusual and the colours are so bright it screams spring and summer.

I'm wearing a 24. I find Bonmarché clothes with stretch to be very generously cut. For example I'd have to order a 28/30 in a similar dress from Simply Be, a 26 in New Look, and probably a 26-28 in Yours Clothing, so if you are bigger than a 24, stick to the clothes with stretch from BM and you'll be fine. 

The dress comes in 2 lengths, this one being the shorter length. The longer length is 1.5 inches longer. 

 Here's a close up of the pattern.

If I could change one teeny tiny thing it'd be to have the neckline a little lower to flash off a bit of cheeky cleavage, but when I'm getting this much colour in one dress I think I can live without that!

(This counts as outfit 20 of Fatshion February.)

What do you think of this dress?

Thanks for reading.
