I’m not sure who came up with this week’s challenge but I like it! I have three maxi dresses – you can see them here, here and here. Today I decided to wear the one I’ve not worn for ages – seeing as I’m wearing the Ruby Rocks one to lounge around the house.
Dress – Ruby Rocks via Val’s blog sale
Cardigan – New Look Inspire
Anyway on to today’s real outfit!
Dress – Evans
Shrug (just seen) – Style369
Cardigan – Joe Browns
Trilby – ASOS
Necklace – gift
I was inspired by Rebecca and her way of making a maxi dress warmer – because today is chilly and wet. So I added the shrug because I wanted to have long sleeves on but also wanted to keep the boobs on show (and to prove to Tracey that I do show off my cleavage!). I then added the cardigan because the shrug is thin t-shirt like material. I love layers!
The last time I wore the dress, I picked up on the jewel greens in it. This time I went for the brown and the more earthy greens. The hat and necklace were a last minute style addition – its kinda boho chic. Although the husband – you know that well known style guru that he is – said I looked like a “country laydee”! On asking for a better explanation his response was “You know, a lady of the country persuasion.”… I have no words!
Anyway back to the outfit – I really like it! The hat is the husband’s but we have fought over it ever since it arrived last summer. No doubt I will have to buy my own – or him another one – this summer. I was warm and I felt pretty cool.
Also I added ankle boots – ones I had forgotten I had! – to keep up with the wintry theme (Becky and I are in pretty similar outfits – great minds et al). I can’t believe I forgot about the boots but its like having new items when you rediscover something…well it is to me!
I’ve added this last picture because I like it – MORE RAIN! Although, I kinda like wet lazy Sundays.
