Alright in Abstract - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello everyone, welcome to the last blog of the year, next stop 2022!

That sounds so scary doesn't it.  Twenty twenty one came and went full of Covid and all its restrictions.
Let's hope and pray that the next year improves and we have some kind of normality ... please!

Do you have any plans for NYE?  Did you catch my post on Monday, the ladies from Style not Age were sharing their Little Black Numbers, do have a look.  I'll probably be in a lounge suit on the sofa .. again, as I'm not going out. 🤣

You all know I'm a huge fan of wearing dresses, somewhat a signature of mine to wear dresses more than separates (except for wearing jeans).  So when Roman Originals asked me to pick a couple of pieces from their new range I had to include a dress in my list didn't I!

Roman Originals never fail to impress me with their glamorous dresses, casual beauties and a twist on  jumpers, shirts and jackets.  I have an outlet near and always come home with a couple of striking items.  You can see this cute red mid dress  and my attempt at pattern mixing are among the beauties.

So let me tell you more about my abstract midi.  It's my kind of style don't you think and I say if a style suits me then why would change it?  I tend not to buy mini or fitted dresses and find the relaxed longer length keep me in my comfort zone - that's not to say I don't drift off course and buy a sexy fitted or shorter version once in a while!

It's chiffon!  Yes my favourite fabric too.  Albeit a little cooler for Winter days but with the added bonus of the inner slip dress, so by adding heel for the evening it's a perfectly cool addition to your Winter wardrobe. 

What a Winter rainbow of colours.  Navy, green blue and orange what a happy looking dress this is, and an even happier price of £45 now! 
I chose navy court shoes, but have worn it with tan boots too! 

This tiered version has long sleeves with a pretty feminine finish at the cuff.  Love to keep warm in this sort of style, looking feminine at the same time. x

It has a full button front and will made your wearable options increased as it's machine washable - wear one day with heels and the next with a jumper and flat boots - what's not to like?

Shop My Look!

Time to party!  It's #Chicandstylish time.

  11. Pretty dress! I like how the skirt looks light and flow-y. Also, I like this kind of print where the colors and figures are close together.
