Fields of Lilac

Nothing completes a trip to Norfolk without a trip to the Norfolk Lavender fields in Heacham. The lavender fields have always been one of my favourite places to visit ever since in a was little and we first started to visit Norfolk. The lovely fields of lilac and the smell of all the different types of lavender is one that can not be missed.

Today I thought I’d bring out another one of my Zara sale bargains with this lilac/pale blue smock dress which was originally £25.99 however I purchased this for £12.99 which is a massive discount for a dress in the Zara sale. I never actually saw this dress online but there was one left in the Bluewater store so I knew it was just meant to be. I always say if there is only one left in stock and it’s in your size, you’re definitely meant to buy it.

This smock dress has a v-neck front and back with open split sleeves with a button fastening. It’s super cute and very similar to the infamous pale blue playsuit from Zara which is circulating on social media, which will set you back around £26 (see Jumpsuit Dress at the bottom for link).

I have paired this Zara bargain with my Reebok Classics. And I know you’re probably thinking, when is Alex going to get a new pair of trainers? But I have to say my Reebok Classics are the most comfortable and practical pair of trainers I have ever owned. Also they go with every outfit I have in my wardrobe. Win, win.

Whilst we were at Norfolk Lavender we stopped for some Afternoon (mid-morning) Tea with scones, clotted cream and jam. A perfect morning in Norfolk.

Smock dresses are definitely my favourite style of dress this summer as they are lightweight and easy to wear.

Here are some of my favourites..

Square One Gingham Dress | Nasty Gal | £22

Jumpsuit Dress | Zara | £25.99

Cotton Smock Dress | Asos | £25
