Hello everybody, and happy Wednesday! Today I'm in for yet another day of uni work (hey, what's new) but first I thought I'd share this outfit from Easter Sunday with you. In spite of the fact that we aren't religious, it was nice to spend the day at home with my family, eating what felt like a week's worth of calories and dressing up a little just for the sake of it - I don't have that many reasons to get dressed up at the moment so this was a nice excuse!
This dress, a result of a spontaneous order which serves to highlight the dangers of owning a store card, turned out to be a lot brighter than I suspected it would be but after some coaxing from my mother I decided to keep it and give the whole 'colour' thing a go. Despite my inevitable draw to all-black outfits, I've been better lately at attempting at least monochrome or pattern, and looking at the photos I'm quite keen on the results. Although this dress would be too twee without some chunky black footwear to balance it out, the lace-up back detailing is beautiful and the shape is so feminine. I can only blame Mad Men for making me crave endless tea dresses at the moment. Find this outfit on Lookbook here...
It's kind of funny in these photos, how the combination of lighting and 'nude' tights make my legs look so much browner than the rest of me. As summer approaches it's starting to dawn on me once again how ridiculously pale I am - a few days ago I tried a magazine sachet of BB cream in their lightest shade and was suddenly more orange than the dress in today's post, so any recommends for pale gals would be much appreciated!
Do you like this dress? Which colours (if any) are out of your comfort zone?
PS. I have launched a blog sale as in a month or so I'll be faced with the task of merging the contents of my uni wardrobe with my wardrobe at home and it's not going to be a pretty sight as both of them are bulging. Please check out what I have on sale, and if you like something feel free to make me an offer - it's all gotta go!
