Another Vibrant Dress from Jenerique - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning all.
Hope all is good with you.

Did you catch me and my four friends on Monday?  We styled our jumpsuits for the monthly challenge and you can view mine and find out my reasons for not keeping the 60's inspired abstract all in one!

As you can imagine it's been a quiet week so far (my two daughters and son are away with their families) so I've been getting on top of a few jobs that I've let slip.  I've been sorting through my dressing room and putting things away and making piles for the charity bin and for adding to my Vinted account!  I'm such a hoarder and keep nearly everything.  I'm trying to go through my things and ask myself do I really need it and will I wear it again!  Chances are if it's not been worn for at least a year (yes I keep things for longer than that .. lol) it's probably not going to get worn again.  I just find it so hard to get rid of anything, especially if it’s a loved item that I've worn for a special occasion!  

I've also been trying to up my Reel game on Instagram, and even though I say it myself, produced an enchanting reel featuring some gifted perfumes ... have a look on my page and let me know what you think!

So whilst clearing up I noticed a dress that I've not shared with you and today is the perfect opportunity to feature it on here.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Now the summer has well and truly arrived (it’s raining as I type), I've been getting familiar with my dresses again, but as you know I'm always on the lookout for more!  When I was recently asked by Jenerique if I'd like to style another of their items I jumped at the chance.  After scrolling through the website my gaze fell upon this one .. it’s called Rita Twist*, you can see why can't you!  
It's an unusual colour combination, one I don't think I've seen before but doesn't the coral and green look striking together - I love the distinct bold pattern, it's shouting "come look at me".

It's rather fitted and a bit in your face, but that's what I love about it.  Unlike the jumpsuit I shared on Monday's post I'm in love with this beauty.  It's the perfect length for me, with sleeves to die for and that fancy twist at the front, it's got my name all over it.  If I'm honest I could do with losing a couple of pounds so that's it's less of a squeeze, so before it's maiden voyage (not decided when I'm wearing it yet) I'll be cutting down for sure. 🤣

I pulled out my green shoes but unfortunately they didn't work colour-wise so opted for these neutral nude court shoes.  These are a tad big for me, but worn in the warmer weather when my feet are hot they will work a treat.  I think I can just about get away with the clutch bag though, this one was featured on the blog previously and you can read about this gifted item when I shared this gorgeous dress with you.  

The Rita Twist is also available in Tropical Green which as you can imagine is a vibrant blue and green and looks amazing just like mine which is flamboyantly called Senorita Flower.
It comes in sizes 8 - 16 and I can confirm you can confidently pick your usual size for the perfect fit!  Do share what colour you'd choose?

    Thank you for the link up!

    1. thanks Mica, that's so kind. Have a lovely week. x

  4. I just commented on IG about your pretty colorful dress! I love wearing mine in the summer and have been rotating them into my outfit. It helps me decide if one has to go (which I did put one in my donation pile). I am learning to let go of the items that I feel like I have to make work instead of loving to wear.

    1. Thanks hunny, that's so kind of you I did see it. Glad you're the same as me, I need to get on top of all my piles of clothes .. ha ha. x

  5. I really love this colour combination. Right up my street! x

    1. Thanks Gail, so pleased with this in-you-face design and colour. x

  6. This dress is very pretty on you! I love floral prints, and the unique and summery color combination. I have trouble letting go of clothing, too. You never know what's around the corner and when a style will be back on trend, again. Enjoy your quiet week!

    1. Aw thank you so much. Hope you have a super start to July. x

  7. Oh, you look fantastic in this dress, Jacqui! Those colors suit you so well. Thanks for the link party, and I hope you'll join me on Friday for Final Fridays!

  8. Absolutely love this Jacqui xx

  9. That's a stunning dress! I love the print, the colours are gorgeous!
