#OOTD: Pinstripe Smock








I wanted to share with you my new ASOS Oversized Smock Shirt, 
it reminds me of what a painter would wear for their overalls, 
all I'm missing is a colour palette in hand!

I originally ordered this in a size 10 but really underestimated how oversized it was going to be, so I returned for a size 8.. unfortunately I didn't hear from my parcel for a while as I'd found out it has been returned to my old flat, which someone had even signed for in my name.. the cheeky new inhabitant obviously has a hold of this lovely smock also for free - how rude.
I will admit, I was very frustrated and vented my anger to ASOS making sure I made a song and dance about it all as I have not ordered anything from this address in over 4 months.. and thought surely it will just get returned to the address a return was issued?
However ASOS as usual with their outstanding customer service were quick onto the case and reassured me a new one was on its way to me which turned up promptly the next day.
So thankyou ASOS once again! 

I think that is why I have an even stronger bond with this smock dress-shirt, as at one point I was convinced we wouldn't be united!
I've actually styled it as an oversized smock dress, the length is fitting for wearing with tights as it dips at the back featuring a curved long-line hem. 
It's also 100% cotton, this always excites me - how lame?
I styled emphasizing the simplicity of my look, pairing with my new Missguided Platform Chelsea Boots I received for my birthday, which I adore :)
They are super comfy and stylish! 
Still hoping to get my hands on the contrast black & white pair!! 

Over and out from me.. 
If your interested, I will have a post coming up soon showing all the lovely birthday treats I received!

xo.

  7. This looks like the comfiest outfit ever, definitely working the laid-back look! I always find when ASOS say 'oversized' they really mean 'HUGE' haha so I always order a size down :) xx

  10. This looks fab :D I do love a smock, my trouble is I always forget to size down so when I try them on I look like I'm wearing bedding. You look incredible though, and I'm glad asks came through in the end!
