So here are some pictures of my mum in the dress 🙂 This is on their honeymoon to Spain (to the same area I’ve just been to actually!). And she’s younger than I am here – very strange!
Leather Jacket: Matalan (similar)
White Midi Dress: My mum’s!
So I decided to style the dress in a slightly different way to her – this was a sensible decision considering I’m not in Spain in September but England at the end of October. I got this snood in Dorothy Perkins the other day. I had a £5 voucher and there was 25% off everything in store that day, so I got it for only £2.50 – not bad really! And of course, it’s pretty chilly right now, so I added my old favourite leather jacket. And finally, my favourite pair of heels because the length of the dress definitely shortens your legs! I’ve also discovered that ASOS have a tartan version of these shoes, eeps! They’re really comfortable, and I’ve also developed a minor tartan obsession this season, so I might need to buy them. I did just buy a tartan pencil skirt from Matalan though…and a tartan midi skirt. But I did have to return the tartan trousers, so maybe the shoes could act as a replacement?!
I was actually surprised at how well the outfit worked out! I was a bit worried about how I would make the dress work in the autumn, but with the burgundy, it works pretty well, and I might wear it like this as a skirt with a roll neck jumper (yes, I have a slight obsession with those too – I bought this one after my cystoscopy as a present to myself, and this one before, just because). I’ve already worn the H&M once twice, and I only got it two days ago, oops!
