Hi there, thanks for joining me today.
How’s your week been?
Our weather has taken a turn for the worst and it’s very chilly here. I’ve been wrapped up in lots of layers even indoors as I seem to really have been feeling the cold.
I have seen signs of Spring being just around the corner. On a walk with Max the other day I saw daffodil leaves sprouting, I just can’t wait for the flowers to bloom. 🌼
I’ve still not visited any shops yet, so have no sale purchases to share with you, instead I’m delighted to share a dress I was gifted last year. It’s definitely a Spring one as it’s got short fluted sleeves and is quite a thin fabric, but with layers like I’m showing today it’s still
an acceptable number to wear in these colder months.
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
I enjoy wearing black and white outfits just as much as colourful items, so when asked to pick something from Needs No Labels I excitedly scanned the website and this black and white beauty * jumped out at me! It’s a ditsy pattern that will team with so many bright colours like my green accents but still look super cute worn with cool black accessories. 🖤🤍
It’s my usual length a midi and has a fancy smock detail at the waist which gives the dress a feminine shape, nothing like a gathered waist to show an hourglass figure (even if you’re like me - athletic mid section - it’s very flattering).
I’m fond of the fluted sleeves too, I like to cover my arms as I’ve got older, so this style is a big hit with me.
It’s been extremely cold here in the UK recently so I obviously covered up with the cardigan which winterise the dress, and I’ve also got layers on under it too.
Purely for the photos I popped this stunning tie shoes on, but would wear boots usually. I need to be a bit more adventurous with my footwear colours and am on the lookout for some slouch boots (perfect if you have wide calves) in brighter shades.
These green goddess’ have been a hit every single time I’ve worn them, there’s something about a sexy tie shoe that people love! Found them on BooHoo for a trip to London and I feel this style is going to be just as popular this Summer too!
An extra layer from my thick black coat. It’s a trench style complete with buttons and matching tie belt. It’s got a big collar and vent on the rear, all in all very much a wardrobe staple and I’m on the lookout for an off white version, see favourite blogger below. ⬇️ 😄
