When I purchased it I had put on a little bit of weight & was verging more towards a size 14 than my usual 12 & I do quite like my summery dresses to be a little more flowy than usual but after losing a few pounds (still a little way to go until I reach my goal though!) this is a little bit too big for me. The tie at the waist keeps it looking pretty flattering though which I love & maybe I'll get the needle and thread out & nip it in a little at the bust.
Boyfriend Blazer: Primark 2009 - £15ish.
Make Up: MAC Face & Body foundation shade C1 £25.50, Benefit Boi-ing concealer £16.50, MAC Semi Precious Rose Quartz MSF £20.50 as a blush/highlight, Collection 2000 Big Fake mascara £4.99 & Carmex lipbalm £2.69.
If it's a little cooler outside or if I want to wear this beauty in the winter (which I absolutely will!) then I've been really liking mixing the more masculine look of the boyfriend blazer from Primark with the super feminine ruffles of the dress. This is a really versatile piece, it can be worn with or without tights, with a cardigan or a heavier blazer or coat & it looks lovely with either heels or flats. I'm silly & didn't photograph the shoes I was wearing but on this occasion it was a pair of simple black flats. If I were going out in the evening & wanted to make an effort I'd pair it with my favourite pair of black heels that I've been practicing (I'm very new to heels!) walking in & I think I'm getting pretty good at it! Yay!
I'm really out of outfit of the day picture taking practise but I think these are one of my favourite posts to write! Hopefully the lighting isn't terrible & I didn't ramble too much, or at least no more than usual!
