Co-host with A pocketful of Polka Dots. A Dress over Jeans?

Hello my lovelies ... how are you?  
Very eager to share today's post with you.
I'm happy to say I'm co-hosting with Jennie, she's the lady behind A Pocketful of Polka Dots if you've not visited her blog before I suggest you pop over there tout de Suite, because she's got some enchanting and very stylish ideas.
What's more we'd love you to join the Fabulous Friday Link Up & share your outfits.

Earlier on today you might have seen my Throw back Thursday blog post, I re-visited a few of my favourite outfits from the past year & you can check them out here!


With the weather starting to change here in the UK, the inevitable comes to mind and I start thinking of slightly warmer clothes for the cooler days that are arriving.  I wanted to keep the summer in mind so decided to style this summer dress for colder weather.
White with a thin black pinstripe all over it, my dress has cap sleeves and a round neck, fitting below the knee it's a fabulous dress for a warm summer evening, for the transitional period this M & S shift dress is working really nicely over jeans.
Pulling out my white boot cut option from storage, I haven't worn these for a few years but fancied a change from the slim fitting style I've been wearing of recent months.  Giving an Autumnal feel to my look with some tan accessories - including these block heel court shoes, I've also worn these with a girly dress the perfect Chambray shirt dress.

The necklace is from Matalan you can find similar here. I've really got the hots for it! With gold rings & beads around the tan leather like strands, it really does it for me.  A great length sitting mid way on my neck which is just right for the M & S dress I chose to wear.  My choice proves to be stylish & has endless possibilities.
What outfit doesn't respond well from the addition of a neutral bag?  The clutch I've added is a really basic, beige suedette bag, similar ideas here.  Every bag collection needs statement bags, but they also need the good ol' reliable variety too!  That's what mine is.












Now lets take a look at this link-up, I hope you can join in the fun, sharing your outfits along the way - I can't wait to see what you're all wearing, I love getting ideas for new outfits!
