How pretty is this F & F mustard dress?

Morning.
Thanks for joining this over fifty blogger today - Sharing a dress with you today, and a very nice one at that!
Whilst shopping in Tesco the other day, I just had to have a browse in F & F, like you do, and found this darling little dress.  I wanted a midi in a light colour, but saw & settled on this one instead. Well I couldn't turn down the colour of the year!  Mustard is one of my favourites at the moment, so as it was covered in dainty little blue, red and white flowers I liked what I saw and bought it along with my dinner ingredients!


This is the kind of outfit I love wearing.  Something feminine, flattering and comfortable.  Mustard has proved it has staying power this year,  which is just as well as I've got a few goodies under my belt already.  I figured I could wear my cute dress when the weather becomes cooler, by just adding a tee shirt underneath.  For Winter months a chunky warm jumper and boots will look really cosy too.  The style is winning with my pear shape, as is the length - mid calf is perfect for me - who wants to see my burly knees? 😂
It has a buttons all the way down the front, which I would have preferred to be only half way with faux buttons on the bottom half, but this does make for easier dressing.  I like the thin belt just tied up at the back, the other way for me just a little bit 'twee' for this boohoo look.
I've chosen my trendy peep toe booties, but I could have quite easily slipped on half a dozen pairs that all would have done the job perfectly!



This tan and gold necklace is one of those 'go with anything' styles - I like how bold it is & have incorporated it with many outfits including this dress over white jeans.


Just look how the denim jacket picks out the blue flowers, it just seems to go with both the style and the colours of todays outfit.


How about a crochet bag to create a festival feel?  I picked this up last year in Matalan and like the casualness it creates.  All in all a stylish outfit that has 'me' all over it!











Thanks for stopping by the blog today, hope to see you on the next #chicandstylish #linkup too.
Great shots from Esther Ruby. Mwahh. x
See you on Thursday.
Bye for now. X
