Today I dared to bare! My legs, that is. With a little help from some fake tan.
I couldn’t wait to wear my new H&M dress and with the office being quite warm the past week, I thought I’d brave it out.
I’m always after pretty dresses that will work for the office and playtime. This looks just as good without the belt for a more relaxed weekend outfit and will work well with sandals when it gets warmer still.
For now, ankle boots are keeping my feet warm. These Ash Spiral ankle boots are great for this transitional period into spring. I love that they had a little height too.
This dress doesn’t need much accessorising. The belt helps to pull it together and give it a little more shape. Otherwise I’ve kept it to the two rings I always wear – my engagement ring and a Pandora ring my mum bought me a few years ago) – and my new ear cuff.
Cuffs were all over the catwalks for SS14, including at Saint Laurent and Prabal Gurung. So we’ve picked out our five favourite cuffs over at Rings & Tings:
I’m wearing the dress with Ash Spiral ankle boots; Next belt (part of three pack); Fat Face earrings; Rings & Tings ear cuff.
Have you dared to bare yet this spring? Have you tried the ear cuff trend?
With spring firmly in the air, it’s time to go shopping in anticipation of summer!
It’s that time of year when wedding invitations seem to be popping through the letter box at every turn! This dress from H&M is perfect for a spring/summer wedding. Throw on your favourite heels and a little jacket and you’re ready to go.
Plus, it’s only £7.99!
We can’t find it on the website – so make sure you head in store to pick it up.
Regular readers will know now that I am obsessed with all black looks. For me, they are so easy and require little to no thought when getting dressed. What goes with my black trousers? My black top. And what goes with my black top? My black shoes. Plus, in my opinion, they look chic and glamorous. And for the office I like looks that really don’t require too much thought when I’m still half asleep in the morning!
If there is a black option for a piece of clothing that I like, I will inevitably choose that over any other option.
So whilst browsing the sale racks in Dorothy Perkins the other day I was instantly drawn to the rail of black tops – all for £5 and under! And so I snagged two new black tops.
Of course, I had to wear one of them immediately:
I teamed my new black peplum Dorothy Perkins top with my black H&M trousers and black Clarks court shoes.
The ease with an all black look too is that accessories and make-up can be used to add colour.
Do you choose colourful or all black looks? What do you think of my look today?
My summer holiday might be over already but that doesn’t mean I can’t still dream! And fill my virtual wardrobe with summery pieces that I won’t ever be able to wear during the British summer:
H&M has some particularly pretty pieces this season. Have you shopped their summer collection yet?
A girl can never have too many Little Black Dresses, in my opinion. This is my holiday LBD. I rarely wear it except when on my holidays. The length is a little difficult to work with when I’m not in a laid back mood: Continue reading
I am totally loving print trousers for spring. Teamed with a plain tee and bright heels, they look great for the office. And they don’t have to be expensive either. Both of my pairs have come in under a tenner! I’ve picked out my five favourites from H&M:
