Well how did your weekend go? Have you had lots going on, just chilling or maybe at work!
Whatever you've done I hope it's been enjoyable.
A busy one for me, with babysitting, BBQ, baby shower and birthday party!
Trying to catch some of the tennis in-between was a little difficult, thank goodness for catch-up TV!
Have you ever had a total turn-around on a specific style of clothing? Hated one and would never entertain wearing it, then changed your mind (as women often do) becoming a big fan? Yes I believe we've all done that - and I'm no exception. Here's why. Never wanting to support the OTS style tops and dresses, but seeing that they are still everywhere, I saw I was missing out on a huge chunk of the fashion scene. You can see How I wear my OTS top. They don't 'do' it for me - not fitting right or feeling good!
However while out shopping for last minute bits to take away to Ibiza I randomly spotted this. A beautiful patterned OTS dress had caught my eye, how would it look, it wouldn't hurt to just try it on, I quickly headed for the fitting room to see if I would be lucky!
Drawn by the feminine, floral pattern along with the length, this dress finishes on the knee which is great for me. Where a garments length finishes on my leg is quite important, not being blessed with great legs I tend to want at least half of them covered when I'm out, and the dress I bought did just that.
The sleeve has the right amount of arm coverage, so I didn't feel over hot.
We then get to the Off the Shoulder bit - It sat just in the right place on my shoulders and didn't move, it didn't gape, it wasn't tight and or restrictive.
My usual thinking that it would look awful and fit awkwardly hadn't happened.
I felt ok in it, no actually I felt great wearing it. Have I been 'turned', would I now be embracing this on-going trend? My answer yep, and yep! Oh and just to add I've bought another off-the-shoulder little number that will hopefully be a winner too because I've got big plans for it next month!
Tropical print is big this summer, this pretty pink floral print fits the bill don't you think? This dress is very comfortable and is perfect for this
Worn with flats, makes this look just right for the baby shower I wore it to. We had drinks and nibbles in the garden along with the usual games of 'guess the baby's weight', 'due date' and 'guess the sex'.
My blingy flats aren't really supportive enough now-a-days so I really need to be investing in something better for my feet, but to relax in the garden on the sunny afternoon it was they were perfect. Coming from Accessorize some years ago, but they've still got plenty in-store.
My dress is from George at Asda for a whopping £10! - Winner!
Have you ever done a u-turn on a style or garment, maybe a colour you have never worn and now embrace with love? I love to hear if you have, let me know in the comments box - thanks. X
Linking with Not dressed as lamb.
Must go now - I'm so pleased you could stop by.
Bye for today, I'll see you Thursday. X
