Last Wednesday evening, I was staying over in Nottingham for the night for work. Once I got to my hotel and relaxed for a while, it was time to take a wander around the city centre a little bit and find somewhere to eat.

Megan encouraged me when I was packing for my trip to give this dress from, surprise surprise, Simply Be a try. And so I did!

The dress is part of the AX Paris range.


I struggled when deciding what to wear with the dress. Ideally, a pair of leggings to match one of the colours in the dress would have been best, I.e. Navy. But I don’t have anything like that currently so I went with the fall back of black.

Footwear wise, I went with my grey ankle boots. Being grey they are neutral and go with lots of different colour palettes. They are also hella comfortable. They are still available in some sizes here (they were a purchase last winter).


Jewellery wise, I went through my collection and found this piece I got from New Look last year. The pink of the necklace matched the dress perfectly.


I love how this dress hangs on me; the cut flatters me very well. The material is soft and comfortable, and I love how bright and catching the print is.






Yes, I was very happy with how this outfit came together and I felt amazing when I left the hotel wearing it.

For anyone interested, I ended up eating in Las Iguanas. My evening meal was absolutely delicious, and very pretty to look at!


I absolutely LOVE Mexican food. This chimichanga was very tasty.


I look forward to wearing this dress again. Perhaps, with navy or pink leggings.

Til next time
