WhatLauraWore: My Zoo Outfit

Mr WLL recently took me to Chester Zoo and it was BRILLIANT.  We love having little dates like this… despite having lived together for over four years, it keeps things alive in our relationship and special I guess.  We’re best friends as well as partners and it’s lovely to just spend some time with each other away from home.  Whenever we go on our little trips out, I like to wear something pretty and this is the outfit I wore to the zoo.  My maxi dress is from Inspire at New Look.  I’d really recommend it if you’re tall and find maxi dresses often come up short on you.  I’m 5ft 5″ and it is really long on me so I’d definitely say it is worth a try if you’re tall.


Floral maxi dress with tan plaited belt from Inspire at New Look

Lilac bandeau (under maxi) from New Look

Cropped denim jacket from Joe Browns at Simply Be

Animal print flip flops from Claires Accessories

Grey FOCCO bag

Rose gold DKNY watch

Nomination bracelet

Necklace from Top Shop

We’re planning another day out somewhere this Sunday too so if you have any suggestions for us (preferably in the North) then do let me know!

    A small warning for you, this dress will shrink in the wash. I washed at 30 (just like the label said) and it shrunk about 20cms in length, but not much in width thankfully. I will be taking mine up to just above the knee since my local New Look don't have any more in stock.
