How have we arrived at Thursday Already! The days seem to be going by so quickly! August has been a busy month for me, with plenty of birthdays, appointments and happenings filling my time. We have a family gathering on Saturday which I'm really looking forward to, I have a couple of things to prepare and bake, but with everyone bringing something with them it makes it so much easier because it's not just down to one person to do the catering. Fingers crossed for good weather, but I fear it may be a wet day with everyone indoors!!
Does anyone else love to have their other half pick something they like for you to wear? I adore when I shop with my hubby and he points to a piece he likes. We seem to have slightly different taste when it comes to what I wear but whenever I put on what he chooses I like it! That's just what happened when we went to our local outlet just before our recent holiday to Majorca. Hubby wanted to get some shorts from the Ralph Lauren shop and I just had to partake in a little peruse of the Roman Originals store - like you do!
I needed another one-piece to take away on my trip, so when he pointed to this black and white shirt dress I just had to try it on. Here's the exact dress if you're taken by it like me!
Roman Originals have a big collection of dresses, skirts, tops, trousers and jackets and I always find at least three of four pieces that I love. I wouldn't say I'd pick the shirt dress immediately, but willingly tried it on to find I loved it.
A midi dress always works better for me, I have a thing about my knees so prefer to keep them covered. This dress deserves all the attention because it ticks all the boxes - great length, cool fitting with a wide belt to cinch in the waist, big trendy buttons down the front and a neat little collar leaving a nice open neckline to show off a cute necklace - my kind of wonderful!
You really can't go wrong with red vibes for a black and white outfit so I picked red sling backs with my red clutch bag, blogging has taught me to be more adventurous, but my old three colour rule still pops it's head up every now and again to leave me feeling relaxed and confident.
This abstract dress is available in sizes 10 - 20 and is machine washable, which is a great saving, so for the £40 cost this feminine belted beauty will be a valuable & versatile addition to any wardrobe.
There are two other colourways on offer - cool khaki or stylish yellow - what's your choice?
A dear little set of beads to finalize the outfit & I'm sure a bold red bead would be just as appealing. What colour would you style with this black & white look?
Here's a close up of the buttons that run down the front of my shirt dress, they're an interesting design - it's a cross between a circle and a triangle - different eh?
Catch My Style Here ...
Time to party - it's #chicandstylish #linkup time.
Let's see who's favourite from last week is Claire - Fashion on a Shoestring. Claire is wearing a vintage style tea dress & doesn't it look adorable? It reminds me of a similar skirt I wore years ago - I felt very elegant in my patterned skirt & hope I looked a million dollars in it like Claire does.
